Exploratory Test Automation

Exploratory Testing is such a great compliment to traditional test approaches that trying to organize this from a test process perspective can be a challenge if not planned properly. Testing professionals often see exploratory testing as one that relates to manual testing. What is it about Exploratory Testing that would not lend itself to Test Automation?

Come see how the creation of an automated test case, can be tweaked to now include options for exploratory testing. Some examples of this are data used in current fields, navigating variations in your application, encountering unexpected active windows through the system under test, interfacing to other systems or intermittent data injection.

The goal of the presentation and application of exploratory test automation is to wrap a level of structure around this approach using test automation and ultimately, produce more exploratory scenarios than would not be possible to do otherwise. Each automated result set would report on the findings from exploratory test automation and the tester can evaluate frequently and take action more rapidly.

Session Takeaways:

  • Discuss exploratory testing conceptually and how it would be complimented by test automation.
  • Apply a structure to exploratory testing the incorporates automation.
  • Learn how to produce more exploratory scenarios using automation.
