Website for having various startergies for using QTP with Oracle apps
I am going to automate an oracle apps using QTP.Can any one suggest me the various startergies for using QTP with Oracle apps and also if possible various problems that might arise during the automation.
Suggestion of an Website name for the above question would also do
Re: Website for having various startergies for using QTP with Oracle apps
in QA we have Methodologies Vs Strategies
Methodologies are Blackbox,White Box and GrayBox Automation by itself is a strategy part of the BlackBox methodology. now to address your question the right way you are asking about Test Plan for Automation, I can give you some tips in glance although your subject is more related to QA than QTP.
Which Test Cases to Automate
Sanity Check tests
tests that need to be run for every build of the web site like when u add new page u need to go and retest all the previous pages depending or having impact with the new page.
Data driven tests
tests that use multiple data values for the same actions
Identical tests that use to be executed using different browsers
transactions with pages which wonít change in short term
** The General principle here is: The more repetitive the execution the better the candidate for Automation
Which Test Cases Not to Automate?
simply you canít test how easy the web site to use?
One time testing
when no future use or no multiple values.
Ad hoc / random testing
if it based on intuition and knowledge of the application
** The General principle here is: if improvisation is required then the test case is a poor candidate for Automation
Planing : Obtain Nescessary Information for Testing in another word: what to record?!!
some examples : button clicks, data field entry, list selections
of each user action
Alternate paths and optional screens
like information and warning dialogue boxes.
Valid data to use
that may encountered while performing the user actions.
Before You Test
These are some of points to keep in mind before starting your QT
Make sure that the application under test is ready for testing
first of all we are creating a test but necessary we are testing. The idea of the whole automation testing is regression you you need to start by having a prototype in our case the prototype was P6.
Perform the test case steps on the application
to make sure they are in the correct order
simulate the whole test , one first run one expirmntal run.
Check the validate of data before recording
Check the testing environment
Check the QT installation setup - you need ORACLE add-ins in your case.
also remember to start QTP before the AUT ; I used to forget this all the time [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Various problems that might arise during the automation? if you are lucky you won't face many problems, different problems may arise strting with object identification ending with QTP crash this forum will help you solving these problems once you encountered them . personally I got most of my knowledge from this forum.
hope this help but agian I guess you have a general question related to QA planning.
