I am basically looking for information on framework for automation. The interviewer seemeed very interested in knowing about testpartner framework. I believe there is a framework for automation but I am not sure if exists a framework for testparter.
I still haven't heard anyone tell me what they mean by "framework". mchandru - you mention a framework build on VBA. Does that mean that to you, "framework" is defined as the scripting language?
I was trying to be subtle, since I knew this was an interview question, but apparently I was too subtle. If I were asked a question like this in an interview and didn't understand what the questioner was asking, I would clarify exactly as I did. "What do you mean by a framework for testpartner? I don't understand what you are referring to."
Let's try this again, shall we? What do you mean by "framework for automation" or "framework for testpartner"?
I confess that I still don't understand what you are looking for. You are correct - TP is built with VBA as the scripting language. But you could also say that it is built to use to an oracle, SQL or MSAccess database as the repository, so it is built on a database framework also.
I'm not sure what else you need to build to support TP in your testing. TP is a stand-alone product that will run scripts against your application. No other "framework" is required. Unless you are building some sort of interface to a third party application. Unless you are looking for someting along the lines of what QATom is talking about, nothing else is needed to get TP up and running.
