(FAQ) AUTOMATION TESTING - FEW FAQ

Recommended Posts

Add if you want to add QUESTIONS to this !

OR any extra points to this answers u can add!!!

WINRUNNER is the best automation tool…..as it has most testing capability….it even performs backend projects testing…which no other tool performs….and the tester needs to have the knowledge of c and sql….which r quite easy

Explain WinRunner testing process ?

 

WinRunner testing process involves six main stages

1.Create GUI Map File so that WinRunner can recognize the GUI objects in the application being tested

2.Create test scripts by recording, programming, or a combination of both. While recording tests, insert checkpoints where you want to check the response of the application being tested.

3.Debug Test: run tests in Debug mode to make sure they run smoothly

4.Run Tests: run tests in Verify mode to test your application.

5.View Results: determines the success or failure of the tests.

6.Report Defects: If a test run fails due to a defect in the application being tested, you can report information about the defect directly from the Test Results window.

 

What is contained in the GUI map ?

 

WinRunner stores information it learns about a window or object in a GUI Map. When WinRunner runs a test, it uses the GUI map to locate objects. It reads an object's description in the GUI map and then looks for an object with the same properties in the application being tested. Each of these objects in the GUI Map file will be having a logical name and a physical description.

 

What are the types of GUI Map Files ?

 

Global GUI Map file & GUI Map File per Test

 

How does WinRunner recognize objects on the application ?

 

Based on their Logical name & Physical properties

 

Have you created test scripts and what is contained in the test scripts ?

 

Yes I have created test scripts. It contains the statement in Mercury Interactive's Test Script Language (TSL). These statements appear as a test script in a test window. You can then enhance your recorded test script, either by typing in additional TSL functions and programming elements or by using WinRunner's visual programming tool, the Function Generator.

 

How does WinRunner evaluate test results ?

 

Following each test run, WinRunner displays the results in a report. The report details all the major events that occurred during the run, such as checkpoints, error messages, system messages, or user messages. If mismatches are detected at checkpoints during the test run, you can view the expected results and the actual results from the Test Results window.

 

Have you performed debugging of the scripts ?

 

Yes, I have performed debugging of scripts. We can debug the script by executing the script in the debug mode. We can also debug script using the Step, Step Into, Step out functionalities provided by the WinRunner.

 

How do you run your test scripts ?

 

We run tests in Verify mode to test your application. Each time WinRunner encounters a checkpoint in the test script, it compares the current data of the application being tested to the expected data captured earlier. If any mismatches are found, WinRunner captures them as actual results.

How do you analyze results and report the defects ?

 

Following each test run, WinRunner displays the results in a report. The report details all the major events that occurred during the run, such as checkpoints, error messages, system messages, or user messages. If mismatches are detected at checkpoints during the test run, you can view the expected results and the actual results from the Test Results window. If a test run fails due to a defect in the application being tested, you can report information about the defect directly from the Test Results window. This information is sent via e-mail to the quality assurance manager, who tracks the defect until it is fixed.

 

What is the use of Test Director software ?

 

TestDirector is Mercury Interactive's software test management tool. It helps quality assurance personnel plan and organize the testing process. With TestDirector you can create a database of manual and automated tests, build test cycles, run tests, and report and track defects. You can also create reports and graphs to help review the progress of planning tests, running tests, and tracking defects before a software release.

 

What are the different modes of recording ?

 

Context Sensitive recording & Analog recording

 

What is the purpose of loading WinRunner Add-Ins ?

 

Add-ins enables WinRunner to recognize and manipulate non-standard objects ( text labels, edit fields, list boxes, push buttons, radio buttons, scroll bars, tool bars, etc.) within applications using ActiveX, Visual Basic, PowerBuilder, and other utilities.
