Home-Brewed Test Automatioin: Approaches from Extreme Programming Projects

Bret Pettichord, Pettichord Consulting

Projects that use eXtreme programming (XP) often do not use commercial GUI test tools, finding it more useful to build their own support for test automation. This session explains the strategies they've used, which can actually cross over to any project where developers take responsibility for building support for automated testing. The XP community has already made an impact on the tools and practices for unit testing in the wider development community. The instructor reviews the potential impact on customer-perspective testing.

  • Share experiences in building in-house GUI test tools
  • How and when to build and use test APIs
  • Open-source tools to support these approaches
