Help Needed for automation
I am new to software automation testing. I am having a project written in VS2010. Its GUI based, uses IIS for client-server communications and Oracle database in the backend. I have been doing manual testing on this for quite long time and now the need is to automate the tests. I am completely new to automation and have no idea on how should I start. Besides, I am required to do the automation in VS2010.
Can anyone please help me on how should I start.
Thanks in advance!!!
Because there are lots of tools with varying degrees of support, and it's hard to tell which tool support which control libraries.
I would say the easiest approach would be to get a copy of the software or a stripped down version of it, and a test account that you can send to the different tool vendors.
Since Window endpoint tools (actually most native endpoint tools) tend to be on the expensive end, their sales people get fat commissions. You can save time by sending all the sales reps for the different tool vendors a copy of your application and a test account, then ask them to come back to you with a demo. it's also good to mention how big your organization is to give them some extra motivation.
Looks like you need do test with browser. the best free tool for web test would be selenium. it could be used for very complicated click-drag test via browser. For simple web test I would also recommend "vnc robot".
If you're going to do test with CLI, then definitely I would recommend autotestnet(https://sourceforge.net/projects/autotestnet/).
GUI test with selenium could be packed to a python script. then that python script could be invoked by autotestnet in different test environment.
