Gain up to 30% testing productivity and assess the performance of your software with our QA Automation team!

When the project is small, manual testing is often enough. But when it grows in scale, automation testing brings better ROI: Using specialized frameworks and tools it makes the quality assurance processes faster, decreases expenses and checks things that are impossible to test manually. To create automated testing scripts, an engineer must know how to program.

Automated Software Testing

Automated software testing is a process when special software tools are used to execute pre-scripted tests. Sometimes, manual testing does not meet expectations, is rather laborious, time and cost consuming. Therefore, it is more cost-effective to apply automated testing that significantly simplifies the testing effort and provides fast test execution. Automated testing tools are used for executing tests, reporting results, and comparing them with earlier test runs. Test automation is intended to the automation of repetitive tasks, product installation, test data creation, defect logging, GUI interaction and much more. Automated testing is important for providing continuous testing and continuous delivery.

Why automation, not manual testing?
  • Cost-effective
  • Unattended automated test runs
  • Run repeatedly and quickly
  • Reusability of test scripts
  • Wider test coverage
  • Support of software with a long maintenance life
  • Shorter development process
  • Improved software quality
  • Faster time to market
What to automate?
  • Important for business features
  • Test cases that are run frequently and go with a large amount of data
  • Repetitive tasks
  • Common functionalities
  • Complex test cases
  • Test cases that can be used for cross-browser testing
  • Test cases that require much effort and time on the part of manual testing
  • Tests that can cause a human error
  • Test cases that cannot be performed manually
  • Tests that are run on different hardware or software platforms

Automated Software Testing Services We Provide

GUI (Graphical User Interface) Testing

This type of testing is used for automation of mouse clicks, keystrokes, select menu items, call object methods and so on to ensure the correct program behavior. GUI testing tools let record user actions, replay them as many times as needed, and compare actual results to what is expected. GUI testing is usually used for websites and mobile applications testing.

Unit Testing

Using this type of testing means the creation of a number of unit tests that determine if various parts of the code are acting as expected under various circumstances. Unit testing is usually used in Agile software development, and such development process is known as test-driven development (TDD). When all the tests pass, the code can be considered completed.

API Testing

API testing means verifying if APIs meet expectations for functionality, performance, reliability, and security. This type of testing is used to validate software behavior under test.

Continuous Testing

Test Automation Frameworks We Use

To implement automated testing, a test automation framework is required. A test automation framework is an integrated system that simplifies the automation effort by offering a set of rules for the automation of a specific product. A test automation framework is responsible for creating tests for a certain type of an application, executing those tests, and generating detailed test reports. Here, at Belitsoft, we use Record & Playback, Keyword-driven, Data-driven, and Hybrid automation frameworks, depending on the project’s testing goals and budget, environment, and time frames.

Record and Playback Framework and its extension

This test automation framework helps to record user actions and replay them as many times as needed. It is rather cheap and easy to deploy. However, it has limited performance and maintenance costs can be rather high.

Data-Driven Frameworks

This advanced framework supports multiple environments and large data inputs. It has high usability, reusability, and wide test flow coverage. Even so, a Data-driven framework requires regular maintenance and manual intervention.

Keyword-Driven Framework

This framework is a good choice for many projects, different applications, environments and data sets. It has good script usability, reusability, and test flow coverage. However, it also requires regular maintenance and deep knowledge of meta-languages.

Hybrid Framework

This is the most complex framework that supports data import and export, external objects integration, and large datasets. It covers multiple applications, environments, and platforms. This framework is also highly usable and re-usable. Even so, using this framework means significant upfront investment and requires good design and implementation skills.

Our Testing Automation Tools

Using testing automation tools lets minimize our work effort and deliver high-quality software. Our applications are efficient and high- performing due to the fact that we use various automation tools such as Selenium, TestingWhiz, HPE Unified Functional Testing, TestComplete and much more. We choose our testing tools based on some criterion such as scripting language use, ease of use, a possibility of database testing, image testing, availability of detailed test reports, support for different types of test, testing frameworks, certain platforms and technologies. As a rule, we choose such automation tool that fits your overall requirements more.

Selenium is one of the most popular testing automation tools we use. This tool is widely used for web application testing, supports different OS (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and programming languages (Java, PHP, C#, Ruby on Rails, Python and other). Selenium is the base for most other software testing tools and UI testing frameworks. This testing automation tool can execute multiple tests at a time, supports autocomplete for Selenium common commands, walkthrough tests, stores tests in different formats and has many other advantages.

Selenium WebDriver

to create regression automation suites and tests and to distribute scripts across various environments

Selenium IDE

to create bug reproduction scripts and scripts aiding in automation-aided exploratory testing

Automated Testing Process

Testing Automation Tool Selection

First, a selected testing automation tool should fit your automation requirements and correspond to the project conditions.

Definition of Automation Scope

Here we define what test cases should be automated and what features should be covered by tests.

Test Automation Design and Development

At this stage, we develop automation scripts and schedule our activity.

Test Execution

When automation tests are ready, it’s time to run them and analyze the provided reports.

Test Automation Efficiency Measurement

After test execution is conducted, we analyze metrics as percentage of defects found, customer satisfaction index, productivity improvements and other.

Test Maintenance

Automation scripts need to be added and maintained for each release to provide their accuracy and efficiency.

Our Test Automation Engineers

Our well-versed QA-team includes experienced test leads, test designers, and team automation engineers who follow the best test automation practices. We carefully plan and design our work. Our QA-engineers start testing as early as possible and run tests as often as needed because the more you test – the more bugs can be identified, and it’s much cheaper and easier to fix them at the very beginning of project development than at the production and deployment stages. We also divide our effort according to the skill set of each QA-engineer to create robust and powerful scripts. In addition, our automated tests are reusable due to the fact that we use quality test data. With the QA-team of Belitsoft, you test faster and save your costs.
