ABSTRACT

Regression testing is very important for dynamic verification. It helps to simulate a suite of test cases periodically and after major changes in the design or its environment, to check that no new bugs were introduced. Evidence regarding the benefit of implementing automation testing which includes saves of time and cost as it can re-run test scripts again and again and hence is much quicker than manual testing, providing more confidence in the quality of the product and increasing the ability to meet schedules and significantly reducing the effort that automation requires from testers are provided on the basis of a survey of 115 software professionals. In addition to this, an automated regression suite has an ability to explore the whole software every day without requiring much of manual effort. Also, bug identification is easier after the incorrect changes have been made. Genius is going through continuous development and requires testing, again and again, to check if new feature implementation have affected the existing functionality. In addition to this, Erudite is facing issue in validation of the Genius installation at client site since it requires the availability of testers to check the critical functionality of the software manually. Erudite want to create an automated regression suite for Genius which can be executed at the client site for checking the functionality of the software. In addition to this, this suite will also help the testing team to validate if the new features which have been added to the existing software are affecting the existing system or not. Visual Studio, Selenium Webdriver, Visual SVN and Trello are the tools which have been used to achieve the creation of automation regression suite. The current research will provide guidelines to future researchers on how to create an automated regression suite for any web application using open source tools.

ABSTRACT

Regression testing is a necessary process to ensure that the existing functionalities of a piece of software are not affected by new features or fixing defects. However, in the case for the web application of PB Tech, this process is very repetitive and time-consuming. In order to solve this issue, automation testing is implemented, and a new test case prioritisation technique is proposed based on a combination of human-evaluation and statistical data of the highest earning features of retailer websites. Using this technique, a regression test suite is created, and the test execution times are compared against a full regression test suite. The results revealed that the prioritisation technique is effective at reducing test execution times. This technique could prove to be effective for use in projects missing defect and requirements documentation.

12. Automated Regression Tests and Automated Test Optimisation for GETRV

Arcolas, N., & Ali, S., (2019). Automated Regression Tests and Automated Test Optimisation for GETRV. 5th International Conference on Advances in Computer Science and Information Technology (ACYSTY - 2019). (Paper Accepted, 03rd July 2019).

ABSTRACT

Regression testing is a type of testing that is performed to validate that new changes pushed to the system does not have any adverse effect to the existing features. Automated regression testing greatly reduces the time spent by testers to perform these repetitive and mundane tests and allows them to work on more critical tests. The first problem addressed in this project is to add two automated regression scripts to increase test coverage of the existing test automation framework. The second problem is to optimise the automated regression test run to reduce the test run times. Additionally, to improve the automated test run times, redundant expressions were removed and handled in the outermost loop of the automated test run. The project resulted in the addition of two automated test scripts for the automated test run and a significant test run time reduction of at least 60%.

KEYWORDS
