Save Time and Money with QA Automation Testing
In today's world, the use of tools for project automation is a necessity that, far from being a luxury, represents an enhancement in the quality processes of software development projects. This allows QA teams to focus on the quality of new features, leaving automated tests to validate all those repetitive cases that consume a lot of time and have complex execution. This is how GAP has had the opportunity to develop Web automation frameworks for many clients, using competitive tools in the market with a proven track record, stability and long-term support, such as Selenium, WebDriverIO, Cypress and Playwright.
API testing helps to identify early issues and is different from UI testing. API Testing doesn't require the GUI to be ready, and it can be performed way early in the development cycle. The Automated API tests provide much quicker test results and significantly accelerate development workflows; thus, it helps you speed up the feedback loop and catch issues faster. Additionally, API tests are significantly less time-consuming, as these sorts of tests do not need to spend much time rendering and loading the web pages and interface elements, but can be executed in seconds. Some of the most common tools we use in our projects are Jest, Jasmine, Pytest, RestAssured, Postman Axios.
QA automation testing is undeniably a powerful tool to enhance the quality of our software. However, the mere creation of test cases doesn't yield as valuable results unless combined with a continuous testing execution process as part of the software development being tested. This is where tools like Jenkins, ADO pipelines, Gitlab, GitHub actions, circleCI, Docker, etc., come into play, enabling GAP to integrate the execution of scheduled tests into repetitive processes that can be triggered as soon as we receive a new version of our application. This allows us to identify whether changes, improvements or new features have caused regressions. In our projects at GAP, we incorporate scheduled tests into the CI/CD process, adapting to the various tools used by our clients or suggesting the ones that best suit their needs.
Nowadays, mobile automation is growing at a fast pace; mobile apps dominate a large part of people’s day-to-day experiences. Thus, developing a great mobile app experience is essential. To ensure apps work seamlessly on Android and iOS, they must be thoroughly tested before getting released to their respective app stores. Using the right tools and implementing a good strategy that includes cloud services can reduce costs. Automation scripts can be created and planned to be executed with nightly builds, getting faster feedback from email reports with the results. It's worth emphasizing that QA automation testing for mobile devices can be employed across hybrid, native and mobile web applications using tools like Appium and webdriverIO.
Performance testing assists in evaluating an application's capacity to effectively manage increasing user loads, transactions and data volumes. An optimized application can help ensure a competitive position in the market. By employing appropriate tools such as JMeter, and implementing effective strategies as part of the QA automation services, various forms of performance testing can be executed, including:
- Load Testing
- Stress Testing
- Spike Testing
- Soak Testing
- Volume Testing
Through our QA automation services, we not only build QA automation testing solutions, but accompany our partners to select the correct tooling and get the most out of them. This includes uncovering bugs in a timely manner and providing security, confidence and reliability about the whole quality of the products before releases.
Through consulting projects — where our best and most experienced engineers engage with the clients to evaluate the maturity of their development life cycle, business needs and applications to be tested, among other needs — GAP provides recommendations about testing solutions covering everything, from processes and test management to QA automation testing frameworks, that fit the business needs and tech stack of the client.
Now is the Right Time to Build Automation into Your QA.
Automation testing offers many advantages, including:
- Regression Testing: Automation is particularly valuable for regression testing, ensuring new code changes do not break existing functionality.
- Consistency: Automated tests follow predefined steps consistently, reducing the chances of human error in testing.
- Parallel Testing: Automation allows for running tests in parallel, which can significantly reduce testing time for large projects.
- Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD): Automated tests can be seamlessly integrated into CI/CD pipelines, enabling rapid and automated deployment of code changes.
- Improved Test Reporting: Automated testing tools often provide detailed reports and logs, making it easier to identify and debug issues.
- Resource Allocation: Manual testers can focus on exploratory testing and more complex scenarios, while repetitive and routine tests are automated.
