Automating Functional Tests
It is very important for us to strictly adhere to testing early and testing often.
What is Functional Testing?
Functional Test Process
Functional tests are created and executed using the specifications and typically follow the below steps:
Importance of Automation in Functional Testing
Automated functional testing, when planned and performed well, can improve the quality and stability of the application. Simultaneously it strengthens the feedback loop between testing and development providing significant time savings.
Automating functional tests that differ only on the input and expected outputs greatly reduces effort in running tests. These type of tests also offer us an oppurtunity to validate many more data points than what is possible with manual testing.
Most of us deliver software on multiple platforms. An automated test suite allows great benefits to run the tests on multiple platforms with little or no modifications to the test scripts.
