Test Automation with Pure Data

Brian Brumfield, Hewlett-Packard Openview

While Web-based GUI testing is all the rage, lots of us still operate in a world of UNIX shells, command lines, and scripts. Automated testing in this world traditionally consists of executing the command being tested, then running a series of additional commands that perform validation. But how do you automate the test when the command being run expects answers? The solution: an Intelligent, Interactive Testing Tool (IITT). An IITT requires no scripting to write or maintain as it's completely data driven, meaning non-programming folks can create and maintain their own automated tests. This presentation demonstrates the ease with which an automated test can be developed using IITT's logic for non-GUI interactive applications.
