Paul Chorley, Co-Founder and Managing Director of AutotestPro was delighted to be invited to share with the BCS Advanced Programming and Testing Specialist Interest Groups, how their unique structured language for defining a users interaction with a system, enables the automation of more than just the testing phase of the software development life-cycle.
One comment from an audience member during the Q&A section highlighted this by saying '"This is so much more than just automated testing; this is a software development automation tool."
The BCS will publish the full video of the speech on-line, so when the link becomes available we will publish it here.
Great news from the development team received today.
Autotestpro can now be used to test the Service Portal in ServiceNow!
Continuing the the extension of the already powerful capabilities in autotestpro, no code is needed to the portal. You simply select new actions like, Log-in to Service Portal, Navigate to a Menu Item, Select a Catalogue Category, Select a Catalogue Item etc. All easily selected from drop downs against your underlying ServiceNow database.
Simple, quick and easy to use and you can automate the testing of Service Portal in minutes.
Great work again by our superb development team!
Autotestpro have introduced a QuickStart feature to their software, enabling business scenarios to be created in minutes from an existing configuration of the system.
Unlike 'click-and-record' methods of capturing test scenarios, QuickStart uses actual actions taken by the users in ServiceNow to create a first cut business scenario.
This significantly speeds up the time it takes to get started with moving to automated testing.
ServiceNow is a flexible solution that delivers change quickly. In order to achieve this, vigorous testing is required to optimise performance.
Manual Testing Vs Automated Testing? 3 Reasons why.....
1. Manual testing is time-consuming which restricts the speed of test cycle times and delivery cycles.
2. Automated testing frees up testers from the repetitive tasks which can lead to errors when done manually, and enable them to spend time focusing on areas where they can really add value.
3. Manual testing is costly and requires many man hours to do the most basic and repetitive of tasks. Introducing an automated system drastically cuts the cost of manual testing.

#1 Not thinking about what an auditor will want to see
Testing is of course closely related to being able to demonstrate that the systems used by an organisation have been rigorously tested and that evidence of this testing, and the results, can be provided for quality audits such as ISO.
#2 A cheaper but more difficult to use system will cost more in the long term
When considering an automated testing framework, one of the main considerations is ease of use. Cheaper solutions will often compromise on usability and this may seem like a saving in the short term, but will always turn out more expensive in the long term.
#3 Not considering how defect management will be automated
Anyone who has been involved in quality assurance will know that a large proportion of the time spent testing a system, is spent recording defects found during testing rather than executing the tests themselves.
Defect logging and management is a laborious, manual and time-consuming task, especially if it is done to a standard that meet with compliance guidelines. This automatic processing of defects speeds up the test/fix cycle times making the whole testing process faster and more efficient. Selecting a test automation framework without automated defect management will likely not provide the benefits that you may think it will.
