More often than not the top testing companies apply agile methodologies based on Agile/XP as well as various Java technologies. That’s why it is not a surprise that the automated testing services become one of the most spread and predominant specializations of the majority of professional testing companies.
The more the automation experience of the company at the diverse levels – beginning with the Java classes unit tests and frameworks, integration tests of the applications’ architectural layers and ending with the testing of complex asynchronous long-running processes of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) applications and the user interface of Web applications – the higher the rating it occupies in its brunch.
Professional Java developers, creating the automated tests, should be able to produce the correct POP models and extensible architecture of tests. Also it is preferable for them to have skills on forming the varied templates and scenarios, which, in future, will be available to be engaged into the similar projects.
Such tests must be simple in maintenance, updating and management. Thereby in future a customer will not be compelled to wait for tool long as far as the testing team will just need to slightly modify and to complete the already prepared tests.
Experts have to provide the automated services of any complexity levels, to be able to give the competent and meaningful consultation on every question a customer is interested in. Also it is desirable to dispose of experience in miscellaneous brunches of this area – whether it is the Continuous Integration into the organization or the report system creation.
Software Test Automation Services Imply:
- Unit testing of any Java components, classes, frameworks, applications, services based on JUnit with implementation of other Java technologies and libraries.
- Web Application testing (Web UI) involving the stable and reliable Open Source Selenium/WebDriver platform.
- Developing the test run infrastructure, including the Continuous Integration server (the most often the Jenkins is used) and server setup.
- Resolving all the issues on test management including the establishment of the reporting based on the test run results and introduction of the best practices and processes of the software test automation services management.
