Any modern software development process includes both manual and automated testing. Automated tests are sometimes incorporated in the development process, during test-driven development, for example.

So, they are used both by programmers and test engineers, and both of them should be good in creating effective and maintainable tests.

A lot of frameworks and tools helping writing code in different languages are available today. xUnit frameworks became popular among software developers and testers. One can find a descriptions of various methods and patterns of writing simple and effective automated tests, smells of automated tests and ways of removing them.

It is useful to know and apply methods recommended by authoritative programmers and experts in software testing, but too many of them have been elaborated, one cannot master them all.

Writing a code one should remember that it will be necessary to perform functional testing, performance testing, security testing, etc. So, the code must be easily testable.

Applying Automated Testing One Has To:

  • make sure that automated tests cover the whole system or module of the system in case of unit testing; each part of the code is to be verified;
  • apply programing methods that allow to create a testable system; otherwise maintenance of the automated tests will be time-consuming;
  • streamline, refactor and update the automated tests regularly.
