Learn how to design and implement a test automation framework block by block
- A simple and easy demonstration of the important concepts will enable you to translate abstract ideas into practice
- Each chapter begins with an outline and a brief statement of content to help the reader establish perspective
- An alternative approach to developing generic components for test automation
As software testing is maturing, the focus is shifting towards test automation. The key is to learn and grow skills in framework designing and start contributing to project organization goals.
Through a helpful mix of conceptual and practical aspects, you will learn everything you need to know related to the implementation of frameworks using QTP. Through simple examples, you will gradually develop the skills needed to execute concepts and code blocks used to design and implement the test automation framework.
This tutorial-based guide demonstrates an easy way to implement concepts to create a portable framework across the various versions of QTP. You will learn about the automation lifecycle and gradually develop technical concepts related to each phase. Within a short amount of time, you will be able to deal with challenges in test automation. "Designing and Implementing Test Automation Frameworks with QTP" uses a simple, yet elegant approach and gives the reader all the skills and knowledge they need to implement the framework.
