    Re: How to write a white paper of automated functional testing?

    some advices:

    - define the goal of the white paper
    - determine the audience
    - considering the audience, think how technical it should be
    - it would be an theoretical one/experience
    - determine (find and read) the documentation you need
    - read some examples (you could start with stickyminds.com)
    - choose a stlyle that fits best your goal.
    - ...

    Daniel_s, thanks for your advice

    In fact, the audience is our customer. And the gole of the white paper is demonstrate our automated tesing sevice.

    It's a new thing for me. So the white paper just puzzle me. I think the first thing is to set up a structure, then I can know what should be included. Can you tell me which is important in such a white paper? thanks very much...

    Re: How to write a white paper of automated functional testing?

    The basic approach I take to such a document is the old idea of, "First tell them what you are going to say, then say it, then tell them what you just said." At a high-level, such a document usually ends up looking something like:
    1. <LI>Introduction ("tell them what you are going to say")
      <LI>Definitions and Acronyms (make sure they understand my terms and acronyms)
      <LI>Main body, organized into sections as appropriate for the material ("say it")
      <LI>Conclusion ("tell them what you just said")
      <LI>Bibiography and/or References if applicable

    You might want to point how the automated testing helps you delivering a more qualitative product, the benefits of automated testing regarding quality/deadlines/costs.
    You can list what kind of test couldn't be run without automated testing,...

    I fact, I'll try to show customer's benefits in your automated testing. That's what they would want to hear.

    Yes. This is one thing can interest the customer. I think perhaps I should read more examples for reference. How to write a good white paper is also an important thing.

    It is. I you know customer's representatives, think in which aspects showed more interest, theirs level of technical knowledge,...

    Don't try to impress them with a long, detailed and very techical speach.
    Include some (relevant) diagrams, graphics.
    If you think some detailed data are needed, put them in Apendix.

    Re: How to write a white paper of automated functional testing?

    One good selling point, in my opinion, is that a good automation effort working in conjunction with a parallel manual testing effort allows your manual testers to do more "interesting", exploratory type testing trying to find important bugs, while the automated testing can handle the mundane things like regression testing and other repetitive types of testing, as well as data-intensive testing where human error can be a problem along with human boredom (such as trying to manually validate a 100-page printed report).
