Submitted by Sriramkumar vh (@srix) on Monday, 13 January 2014
Understand Keydriven testing and data driven testing using examples.
Compare KDT and DDT testcases with manual testcases
Walkthrough on KDT and DDT using Robot framework.
Applying KDT and DDT on embedded/hardware projects
Extending Robotframework to support any language or tools like sikuli
Imagine a small team building an advanced router. Probably first of its kind. product stability is of paramount importance. Executing 1000s of testcases after every build not going to work. Not enough time or resource available. For us, test automation is not a luxury it is a necessity. My previous experience in designing an internal test automation framework for Tektronics gave an helping hand.
Am sharing our experience and insights in using Robot framework for KDT and DDT test automation of our product.
I will also share some examples from our test bed.
