Learn about the advantages that testing automation frameworks have, including selective test running, aggregation of results, and delegation of maintenance responsibility.
- [Narrator] I've described several different ways…of testing software.…Unit, integration, and even functional testing…can be automated, using a framework.…But, how does automation work?…Test automation is separate software from the application…that is being written and tested.…Test automation has multiple purposes.…First, it controls test execution,…including order of execution and filtering of tests,…based on criteria.…The goal is to avoid repetitive tasks,…that are inherent with manual tasks to execution.…
With that context, a testing framework,…also known as a testing automation framework,…is an execution environment for automated tests.…A testing framework is useful for a number of reasons.…A testing framework performs a number of helpful tasks.…Starting with a consistent definition…of how assertions are defined,…which promotes maintainability.…They control and interact with the tested application.…A testing framework executes tests,…or more importantly, it reports the results.…
This includes individual results,…
