Advancing toward Test Automation through Effective Manual Testing
The fast pace of modern software development creates tremendous challenges for the test team. Online software updates and frequent release cycles generate a "moving target" for test automation efforts. This paper outlines IBM's recommended approach to the test automation challenge, knowing that most testing is first done manually. IBM Rational Manual Tester promptly increases the effectiveness of manual testing. It also encourages testers of all skill levels to build linked content using drag and drop and copy/paste when writing manual test scripts. This linked content in Manual Tester's reuse view allows a test team to focus automation efforts on the most frequently repeated flows first. IBM's approach yields earlier return on investment and accelerates reaching the benefits of keyword-driven testing while providing better test script documentation.
