Agile Software development

13 Oct

I heard much about Agile keywords but really do not have time to investigate what is it. Today I got some information and really enjoy this keyword. Actually, we have so many things to learn and investigate ^^.

As, Agile software development is a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle. (Source

List of ebooks about selenium you should read

5 Jun

1. Selenium 1.0 Testing Tools: Beginners Guide

The Selenium Testing Tools Beginner’s guide shows developers and testers how to create automated tests using a browser. You’ll be able to create tests using Selenium IDE, Selenium Remote Control and Selenium 2 as well. A chapter is completely dedicated to Selenium 2. We will then see how our tests use element locators such as css, xpath, DOM to find elements on the page.

Once all the tests have been created we will have a look at how we can speed up the execution of our tests using Selenium Grid.

A beginner’s guide to writing Selenium tests using different aspects of the Framework to give you confidence in your web application

Test your web applications with multiple browsers using the Selenium Framework to ensure the quality of web applications

2.  The 2nd edition of “Selenium Simplified

“Selenium Simplified” takes you through the process of installing and learning to use all the basic tools needed to write automated tests using Java as the programming language. Written in a tutorial style, this book helps you learn to code even if you haven’t programmed before. No time is wasted on the theory of automation or padding about the tools. This book focuses on the practical knowledge needed to automate tests for production systems.After reading this book you will be able to: -Write tests in Java – even if you haven’t coded before reading this book-Install and maintain all the free development and testing tools covered within: Eclipse, JUnit, Selenium, Hudson, Subversion, Xpather, Selenium-IDE-Write automated tests scripts using Java and Selenium-RC-Create abstraction layers to make your automated tests maintainable and readable-Run your automated tests under continuous integration-Use multiple browsers to execute your tests-Understand the most utilised commands in the Selenium API-Test Ajax based web applications-Use Xpath and CSS Selectors in your tests-Understand how to optimise and refactor your tests-Use JUnit for data driven testing.

Experiences of Test Automation – Case studies of Software Test Automation

31 May

Software test automation has moved beyond a luxury to become a necessity. Applications and systems have grown ever larger and more complex, and manual testing simply cannot keep up. As technology changes, and more organizations move into agile development, testing must adapt—and quickly. Test automation is essential, but poor automation is wasteful—how do you know where your efforts will take you?

Authors Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster wrote the field’s seminal text, Software Test Automation, which has guided many organizations toward success. Now, in Experiences of Test Automation, they reveal test automation at work in a wide spectrum of organizations and projects, from complex government systems to medical devices, SAP business process development to Android mobile apps and cloud migrations. This book addresses both management and technical issues, describing failures and successes, brilliant ideas and disastrous decisions and, above all, offers specific lessons you can use.

Coverage includes
Test automation in agile development
How management support can make or break successful automation
The importance of a good testware architecture and abstraction levels
Measuring benefits and Return on Investment (ROI)
Management issues, including skills, planning, scope, and expectations
Model-Based Testing (MBT), monkey testing, and exploratory test automation
The importance of standards, communication, documentation, and flexibility in enterprise-wide automation
Automating support activities
Which tests to automate, and what not to automate
Hidden costs of automation: maintenance and failure analysis
The right objectives for test automation: why “finding bugs” may not be a good objective
Highlights, consisting of lessons learned, good points, and helpful tips

Experiences of Test Automation will be invaluable to everyone considering, implementing, using, or managing test automation. Testers, analysts, developers, automators and automation architects, test managers, project managers, QA professionals, and technical directors will all benefit from reading this book.
