From the book "Automated Software Testing", by E. Dustin, J. Rashka, and J Paul:
"A Library of reusable functions ...may have been created for test efforts on different projects..."
The Following functional scripts are recommended:
1. Table - driven test automation
2. PC environment set up script
3. Login function
4. Exit function
5. Navigation function
6. Verifying GUI function
7. Error - login routines.
8. Help function verification script
9.Timed message boxed function
10. Advanced math functions
11. Smoke test
12 Automated recording options
Could you, please, give me additional functionality from your work experience with SilkTest and other test tools?
Also, I would like to know what is your library tree structure.
It is really great idea! What is the date and name of conference? Where I can get information about it (conferences)?
I agree with you about separating the data from the code, or the Tool from the Testcase.
So far, I was able read and write data using TXT and INI files.
But I cannot figure out How To Read Data From Excel using Silk and other stuff (parsing and mapping).
Could you please, or anybody else, give the detailed example (code and output) of reading Excel at least?
