    Data Driven

    <Font
    What could be the criteria for choosing Data Driven approach either one of the below listed.
    <b>1. Test Plan Editor:</b>
    Passing Data from the TestPlan like <b>TestData:</b>~~~~~~

    <b>2. External File or Database</b>
    Passing Data from the text/excel or from any of the database including Access.


    Like... Volume of the Data
    Redundancy of Data
    Data Modifiable Rate.

    What else could be the deciding Factors?Also,let me know how far each factor weighs in the decision?

    Re: Data Driven

    Dear babu,

    passing data from testplan is of two types by using the keyword testdata:data
    other way is using symbols.
    symbols usage will eliminate the redundancy.
    but with respect to database, if there are huge data to be passed to testcase in that case u can opt for external database.

    Re: Data Driven

    In the past and now I develop my test cases to be completely driven from a database of test data. The tests will perform differently based on the desires of the test engineer executing them.

    The database is written in Access and forms and logic are provided for the user. The user then enters the test data, expected results, and conditional flags for test case behavior.

    This allows for a more dynamic testing environment, a reduction in the number of automated testcases that have to be maintained, more time to maintain the include files and add additional testcases to the suite.

    I am sure this is quite extreme and won't work everywhere but with the type application and testing that we do, it sure works well for us.

    Re: Data Driven

    If you are going to develop input from a database then it is an easy step to also put your test results into your database also.

    They are. Just didn't think it was important to say here.
