Manual to Automated Testing: An Effort-Based Approach for Determining the Priority of Software Test Automation

Test automation allows performing difficult and time consuming manual software testing tasks efficiently, quickly and repeatedly. However, development and maintenance of automated tests is expensive, so it needs a proper prioritization what to automate first. This paper describes a simple yet efficient approach for such prioritization of test cases based on the effort needed for both manual execution and software test automation. The suggested approach is very flexible because it allows working with a variety of assessment methods, and adding or removing new candidates at any time. The theoretical ideas presented in this article have been successfully applied in real world situations in several software companies by the authors and their colleagues including testing of real estate websites, cryptographic and authentication solutions, OSGi-based middleware framework that has been applied in various systems for smart homes, connected cars, production plants, sensors, home appliances, car head units and engine control units (ECU), vending machines, medical devices, industry equipment and other devices that either contain or are connected to an embedded service gateway.

Transforming Automated Software Functional Tests for Performance and Load Testing

Authors: Peter Sabev, Assoc. Prof. Katalina Grigorova

Functional testing is a quality assurance process that could be automated. Functions are tested by feeding them input and examining the output expecting concrete results. However, the performance measurement and execution times of these tests are rarely considered when executing functional tests. Adding simple timestamps for every functional test execution when such a test is started or stopped could bring a valuable benchmarking data for analysis, save a significant amount of time for executing performance tests separately from functional tests, and increase defect removal efficiency.

Има ли смисъл да ви казвам, когато мога да ви покажа… Това е една-единствена снимка, като многото изображения са единствено с цел да ви демонстрирам качеството й:

Процесът Gigapan включва заснемане с робот, който движи фотоапарата и прави няколкостотин (а може и няколко хиляди) снимки една след друга. След няколко часа дигитална обработка, получавате снимка с размер няколко гигабайта и умопомрачително качество, достатъчно за снимка с размер на… жилищен блок!
Специални благодарности на моя приятел и колега Христо Иванов, че сподели с мен новината, а повече за въпросната технология можете да научите от статията ми в сп. Computer, която ще излезе в мартенския брой.
