Test Automation Scripting Technique- Data Driven Scripting
Data driven scripting

This technique separates data from the scripts and stores it into external repository as disk in form of files. So the script contains just the programmed code. This may be needed when the data needs to be varied over the test run. This script need not be modified if it is data that undergoes a change. At times the expected data can also be stored in the data files that have test data.

*Pros and Cons of Data driven scripting
  • Scripts are programmed in a structured manner
  • Test case is defined by test data/ script
  • Development costs required are relatively high as compared to the shared scripting due to parameterization and programming efforts
  • Intermediate to high programming skills are required by tester
  • More planning is needed
  • Data is isolated into data tables or external files
  • Script maintenance is as low
  • Recommended to be used where positive and negative data testing needs to be performed
