From script to CI – Automation as a software project

by Yoram Shamir

Test automation has evolved far beyond engineers manually running ad-hoc scripts.

Satisfying the requirements of today’s advanced development standards requires automation frameworks that support complex test scenarios run by Continuous Integration (CI) tools over sophisticated setups provided by Lab-as-a-Service (LaaS) engines, producing daily reports.

Achieving this means approaching automation as a full blown software project.

In this presentation Yoram will present actual case studies to explain:
– the difference between “automation scripts” and “automation frameworks”
– why building a framework makes sense
– how to use Xena’s APIs to integrate their chassis into an automation framework
