Slide1: Management for Manual Software Testing www.aptest.com/atm2 Applied Testing and Technology Overview: Overview Manages and tracks testing status and results Provides consistent, repeatable QA process WWW based Persistent information repository Integrated requirements management Extensive reporting Role-based security Highly flexible and customizable QA Testing Challenges: QA Testing Challenges Process inconsistent and is not repeatable Personnel turnover loses knowledge Time consuming and difficult to monitor progress measure productivity assess quality share information The ApTest Manager Solution: The ApTest Manager Solution Consistent, repeatable process Permanent information store Real time access to tests, results, status Geographically distributed users QA, customers, development, . . . Test method and tool neutral ApTest Manager Benefits: ApTest Manager Benefits Higher product quality Better tests, better coverage, better process Find and fix bugs sooner in the development cycle Shorter projects at a lower cost Improved, measurable productivity Manage Manual/Automated testing: Manage Manual/Automated testing Requirements Test Cases Manual Testing Reporting Test Results Automated Testing Requirements Repository: Requirements Repository User defined tree of Folders As deep and wide as you want Folders contain Requirements and Files Requirements fields totally configurable. As many fields as you want: menu fields, text fields, date fields, tables, etc. Requirement names can be strings or automatically assigned numbers Test Repository: Test Repository User defined tree of Folders As deep and wide as you want Folders contain Test Cases and Files Test Case fields totally configurable. As many fields as you want: menu fields, text fields, date fields, tables, etc. Test Case names can be strings or automatically assigned numbers Link Requirements and Tests : Link Requirements and Tests Tests can be linked to Requirements in any relationship One-to-one, many-to-one, and one-to-many Tests can be automatically created and linked to Requirements Execution: Execution Unlimited number of different groups of tests (Test Sets) Created by querying test characteristics: e.g. the tests for a particular version or feature. Each Test Set can be run as many times as you want, results stored separately for different test environments (Test Sessions) Typical Project: Typical Project Reqs Tests Sets Sessions test subsets execution results . . . . . . Customization: Customization Easily customized What fields make up a Test Case Name, Format, Default Value How a Test Case is displayed Editing, Executing, Reporting Session Variables Characterize test environment H/W-S/W Design your own ‘gold standard’ configuration Reports: Reports On part or all of a project composed of different Sets and Sessions Status: %done, results, vs. schedule Coverage of test cases Productivity of users Compare Sessions On specific sessions Custom queries can be defined and saved Integrates with Existing Tools: Integrates with Existing Tools Test Repository: Test Repository Tree of folders of tests Create Edit Copy Rename Delete View Test Editing: Test Editing Field Types Menus Text Areas Tables Field Styles WYSIWYG HTML Editor Text Requirements Repository: Requirements Repository Tree of Reqs Create Edit Copy Rename Delete View Repository Reports: Repository Reports Test Requirements Reports Test Specification Reports Test Execution: Test Execution Run specific groups of Tests (Test Sets) Run them in specific Test Environments (Test Sessions) Test Execution: Test Execution Any number of Test Sets (subset of Test Cases for different test cycles, product versions, etc.) Any number of Test Sessions, each recording the execution of a Test Set (in a different H/W-S/W environment). Test Cases only need be defined once, so easily maintained and evolved Test Set: Test Set Group of Test Cases based on an ad hoc query of Test Case field values Test Sets: Test Sets Queries select different groups of tests Test Session: Test Session Results of running Test Cases for a Test Set Session Variables specify test environment Test Sessions: Test Sessions Session Variables tag the session with info on where and how it was run. e.g. O.S., browser, hardware, product version, tester, . . . You can search for and report on Sessions based on a variety of criteria, including session variables, e.g. compare the results of all the Sessions run on Windows XP with Oracle. Test Execution: Test Execution Tester is given Requirements Procedure Tester enters Test result Time spent (optional) Notes Reports: Reports Are generated for one or more sessions Sessions can be selected with ad hoc queries Status Report: Status Report Multiple sessions % Complete Time remaining Trends Result Details Links to per session reports Users Report: Users Report Results Productivity Schedule analysis Results Report: Results Report Test Case details and results Regression Report: Regression Report Multiple Sessions Compares Results Coverage Report: Coverage Report Coverage of Test Cases by Sessions Can create Test Sets of uncovered Test Cases Configuration: Configuration Specify Test Case Fields and their formats Configuration: Configuration Specify Test Results Configuration: Configuration Specify how a Test Case is displayed for editing, execution, reports Configuration: Configuration Specify Session Variables Security: Security Password protected accounts Access controls per user by Test Suite Security: Security Admin functions controlled by admin users Email Notifications: Email Notifications Per User, Per Suite Multiple event triggers Other Features: Other Features Integrates with third-party tools Bug tracking Source control Import and Export Test Cases and Requirements via CSV files (e.g. from Excel spreadsheets) Import of automated test results from test harnesses Support & Maintenance: Support & Maintenance Multiple releases annually Bug fixes Enhancements Updated OS, browser and server compatibility What’s Coming Up: What’s Coming Up ApTest Manager Automation Edition Adds Test Automation support Scripts can be associated with tests and executed over your network Results stored and reported with manual tests Separately priced add-on System Requirements: System Requirements Windows, Linux, or MacOS Perl Web Server, e.g. Apache, IIS Server of moderate size (e.g. 2.8GHz P4) Server does not have to be dedicated Licensing/Pricing: Licensing/Pricing Purchase and run on your server Per Seat floating licenses.
