TEST AUTOMATION WITH BDD IN FINANCIAL GROUP
Dec 23rd 2018
Our client needed to automate functional tests within the several projects running in the organization. The automated tests should lead to decreasing the effort related to regression testing while increasing the capacity and efficiency of the existing testing team, without growing the headcount. Test scenarios should be based on functional requirements defined in gherkin.
Several solutions have been assessed to automate the existing requirements and test scenarios. Specflow was selected as it is an add-on that allows the automation of BDD (Behavior Driven Development) over C#.
A common baseline to all functional testing automation projects in the organization was built. This baseline makes it possible to quickly set up new automations in any new projects within the organization's infrastructure.
It is now possible to quickly set up new automation solutions. The framework developed allows minimizing the time spent in defining the architecture of new automations. Using a pre-defined set of methods and functions already implemented, it is possible to accelerate the automation of the test scenarios.
This enabled the continuity of the test process from the requirements phase to the automatic execution of regression testing.
