The three resources below can be a good start for those in the early stages of software automation research:
Automated Software Testing Basic Guidelines – This white paper shows you how to get started, and covers areas such as:
- How to select the right automated software testing tools depending on YOUR criteria and test strategy;
- Practical lessons and step-by-step procedures for building a framework and Software Test Automation Architecture;
- Coding tips; interfacing with Unit testing, and Rules to follow for easy maintenance of automation scripts. It also points out typical areas that are prone to failure, and how to avoid them.
Automated Software Testing Best Practices – Our best practices change according to changes in technologies, methods, and business requirements. Additionally, Best Practices for some are not Best for others. In any case, we’ve listed out some Great Practices so that you can pick and choose which ones are BEST for you. This can even be useful for the software development team!
Automated Test Assessment White Paper – This document discusses the factors involved in deciding whether automate software testing is right for you and then provides a step by step self-assessment to help you objectively decide whether or not to go forward with it.
Although not specifically addressed within our typical Automation Assessment; Automated Performance Testing is also an important part of test automation that should take place on a regular basis to ensure that your application performance does not degrade over time as new features and functions are added.
