Guys, I need an advice on how to automate a site that has lots of moving parts. I mean for example a news aggregator site. Because these sites depends on news, contents are almost different everyday. My major concern is the content e.g. article content. What kind of test should be done on this kind of sites?
Palani makes a good point. It is difficult to automate something that you don't have expected results for. However, there likely are expected results you can map. These might be as simple as things like Is the content correct? Is the content title correct? Is the ordering of the content correct? Is the content formatting correct? Is the content updated in a timely manner?
These should all be things that you expect out of the aggregator that you can automate. You can also write in exceptional test cases like What happens when a bad feed URL is supplied?
You should have a lot to automate with this even though it might not seem like there are a lot of expected variables.
9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
