Title: When To Begin An Automated Functional Testing

When To Begin An Automated Functional Testing
Application functional testing is the most widely
acknowledged testing practice in all main
software development companies. Billions of
dollars have already been used on automated tools
to support the automatic testing system but
companies are still struggling to get the fine
software quality. Regardless of this big
investment in automation, more than 70 of
software testing is still done manually.
Determining what has been tested and what is left
is the leading challenge in most of the
companies, and the time commitment necessary for
automated functional testing services are one of
the huge concerns for meeting application
delivery. Use of automated tools alone cant
guarantee that the functional testing is precise
and absolute. To accomplish this target, the
tools should be supported by a crystal-clear
practice for its value and should be incorporated
into an organization's software development
process also.
An efficient and constantly-applied functional
testing practice is the only way to ensure that
software satisfies estimated specification,
functionality and consistency objectives. When
To Begin Functional tests are described and
performed when the units of the application are
considered complete. If parts of the application
are changed after the trial began, the test is
usually considered valid and must be repeated.
White box testing relaxes this demand, in that
the tests are known to be affected by the change
of code can be considered as still valid.
Automation of functional testing provides various
benefits during the testing phase, like Data
Value Parameterization A type of data values
can be entered by the tester into the test cycle
during the testing procedure. This eliminates the
requirement to execute the whole testing cycle
repetitively for each input. However, manual
testing cannot be ignored as automation cannot
evaluate the logic behind the test case,
something that is best done by a human.
Automation testing is used where a type or set
of test cases require being executed recursively
with the change in the input values or little
change in the test script. It cannot be a
substitute for manual testing as situations might
arise wherein the whole logic of a test requires
to be reframed for verification of a separate
Accurate Results Functionality test automation
produces more accurate results as compared to the
tests done with human efforts. The execution
steps or scripts are hard-coded into the
automating tool and all the directions are
executed without any bug. This makes a more
accurate output report about testing in the
minimum amount of time.
Great Test Coverage Automating the process of
testing for a software confirms the functionality
to a deep level as compared to the manual
investigation. It covers a wide range of test
scenarios and test cases to execute upon a
software in order to verify its functionality and
to project a more comprehensive overview of the
given functionality. Faster Execution
Automation speeds up the procedure of performing
the series of testing steps in order to analyze
the functionality of the application. Moreover,
more than one set of modules or elements can be
tested with automation which further assists in
the completion of testing phase for complex and
large projects.
Common Functional Tests Include Regression
tests Tests that code modifications do not have
a negative impact on the functionality of the
software. Smoke tests Tests the main pieces of
the software in a non-comprehensive manner to
make sure the software runs perfectly (or is not
riddled with too many problems) to move on to
additional tests.
