Agile teams invest heavily in automated functional tests. When done well, this investment is paid back with fast feedback enabling teams to release software quickly and often. By structuring tests in the right way, teams can further leverage this investment by using these tests as a platform for exploratory testing that could find issues a regression test suite won’t.

TickSpec is a lightweight Behavior Driven Development (BDD) framework. It describe behavior in plain text using the Gherkin business language: “given, when, then”.
Behavior-Driven Development is more than a technique for creating and organizing unit tests. It is also a wonderful way to communicate with customers and users about the software being created. This video demonstrates some techniques and tools you can use to start delivering software with BDD. : Using Behavior-Driven Development frameworks, this session explores ways to create software starting with solid Agile requirements, moving all the way through automated testing. We use .NET in C# and Visual Studio ALM, although none of these exact tools are required to accomplish the goals we set forth.

FitNesse, BDD/ATDD based tools (like Cucumber) and various keywords based tools each have their followers when it comes to automated testing at the system or acceptance level. But few have tried each type and many are wondering which one best suits their organisation, project or product. The concept of Domain Specific Test Languages (DSTL) is a great improvement over record & playback based approaches to automated testing and promises easy to read & write tests in the language of the business and low maintenance effort. This interactive session first presents DSTLs and how they fit in an Agile process & team and then considers how each type of tool supports this effective approach to automated testing. The tools will be compared using one non-trivial test case, to illustrate some of their strengths and limitations
Tools like FitNesse allows test automation to happen quickly and broadly. However, many companies can’t support it in their infrastructure. Dawn Cannan got around this problem by helping create SeleNesse, a Selenium-FitNesse plugin. She also paired with developers in the Java space and the .NET space to bring this plugin to both domains.
GWT has a lot of little-publicized infrastructure that can help you build apps The Right Way: test-driven development, code coverage, comprehensive unit tests, and integration testing using Selenium or WebDriver. This session will survey GWT’s testing infrastructure, describe some best practices we’ve developed at Google, and help you avoid common pitfalls.
You will learn the basics of Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) as well as how to use these concepts to bridge the gap between requirements and implementation ? on .NET platform with SpecFlow. SpecFlow is an open source project inspired by Cucumber aiming at bringing pragmatic BDD to .NET.
Molybdenum is web UI testing made easy. Capture and replay, modularized and maintainable tests with bricks, data binding with external files, reporting with simple rerun possibilities, test other media than HTML like PDF with helper applications. It provides integration into build tools like ANT and Maven. Molybdenum is based on selenium-core. While SeleniumIDE is focusing on developers with export to different programming languages and crossbrowser testing, Molybdenum is focused on simple test execution, reporting, test parameterization for everybody participating in your team. This video shows how to do cross browser testing with Molybdenum.
This screencast gives a 10 minute how to on getting started with GivWenZen. GivWenZen allows a user to use the BDD Given When Then vocabulary and plain text sentences to help a team get the words right and create a ubiquitous language to describe and test a business domain.
The creator of Hudson, Kohsuke Kawaguchi, speaks to Digg engineering team about the current state of Hudson and what we can look forward to down the road. His comments about Selenium and Hudson are of particular interest to the QA team. There are all kinds of integration possibilities – from custom reports that include embedded Sauce Labs video results to automatically establishing connections between our environments, there are lots of ways to make tests run more often and more quickly through Hudson.keep looking »
