QA Wizard Pro

A good way to organize scripts in QA Wizard Pro is to think of each script as a test case. As you work with each script, determine if common functionality exists between them. For example, if several scripts include a sequence that logs in to your application, you could isolate the login action statements in a separate utility script that each script could call. You could create other utility scripts to perform additional actions, such as logging out of your application, configuring user options, or interacting with custom controls.

You can also write scripts to set up and tear down a test configuration to ensure the test environment is the same each time the suite of test cases is run. A setup script might populate a database with usernames and credentials before running the suite. A tear down script might remove those same usernames after the suite has run. Continue reading…

QA Wizard Pro’s scripting language includes a set of statements you can use to automatically create TestTrack issues to report errors found during script playback. The statements you use depend on the information you want to add to the issue.

You can use the AddIssue statement (named AddDefect in QA Wizard Pro 2014.0 and earlier) to create a brief issue with information only in the Summary, Description, Steps to Reproduce, and Other Hardware and Software fields. This is a simple way to create a new issue, provide some basic information in it, and add it to TestTrack at the same time.

QAWP 2014In case it hasn’t popped up on your crystal ball yet, we recently released QA Wizard Pro 2014, the latest version of our automated functional and load testing solution. QA Wizard Pro 2014 includes JSON support, Nokia QT 5.1 support, and other enhancements to improve its performance.

New Features

With new JSON support, QA Wizard Pro can now manipulate the JSON that comes back from web servers, allowing testers to organize data structures better. You can create and manipulate JSONObjects and JSONArrays using the following statements: JSONArrayGetValue, JSONArraySetValue, JSONCanParseAsArray, JSONCanParseAsObject, JSONIsValid, JSONNewArray, JSONNewObject, JSONGetValue, JSONObjectGetValue, JSONObjectSetValue, and JSONParse.

These statements can be called on an instance of a JSONArray type in Text View: GetAllValues, GetLength, GetValue, InsertAt, Pop, Push, RemoveAt, SetValue, and ToString.

And these statements can be called directly on an instance of a JSONObject type in Text View: GetPropertyNames, GetValue, HasProperty, RemoveProperty, SetValue, and ToString.

This is a guest post from Bart Honing of Quality House. Bart has been working for over 7 years in the field of testing, from developing and implementing test cases to test management in various industries ranging from banking to government.

 

Since I started off as a software developer, I have a tendency to dive into figuring out how the black box actually works on the inside. This attitude can be of good use when working on test analyses and test execution. But, when starting off on a project aimed at integrating black box components, it can be a challenge to focus on the interfaces instead of the logic within the box. With the increasing complexity of software and the desire to integrate services, black box testing—or system testing—is far from obsolete.
