No money? No support from your supervisor? No experience in test automation? No problem.
Even with these barriers to entry, you too can reap the rewards of automating test activities in your web application. Sometimes a formal framework is overkill. Shooting for the moon rarely works when there are so many unknowns. With a less than optimal implementation, bad test automation could also leave your project at risk.
This presentation will provide you with an idea framework to help your test efforts along. The key is to start small and learn as you go along. By utilizing Ruby (a free scripting language) and the Watir (Web Application Testing in Ruby) library among other tools, the hit to your budget is zero dollars. By building on cumulative successes, you can present the business case for supporting automated test efforts in your organization.
As someone who has brought in test automation to several organizations, I will share with you my keys to success, so that you may also reap the many rewards of automated testing on your projects.
