Sample Cucumber with Java

Most of us should have heard about the term BDD - Behavious Driven Development. In this post, I would like to give some intro about familiar BDD framework called Cucumber and why we need BDD.

Why BDD?
Once people started moving to Test Driven Development (TDD), it helped a lot interms of reducing the bugs in development stage itself as every feature was developed by creating smaller unit tests, making it FAIL and coding the functionalities to make it PASS.

But eventually, the BAs and testers are not able to follow these testing practices and thus gap in communication which lead to lot of mis-understanding the features/requirements.

So, experts wanted a framework which should take inputs like normal people speaking English and should run the tests based on those requirement. Also this requirement will support as documentation of features to understand by testers/BAs/devs. Thus BDD was born.

BDD keywords:
Given, When, Then and And

Example:

Scenario: Login to Facebook
 Given Facebook login page
 When I enter valid username and passowrd
 Then I should see my home page
 And I should see my name

If you see above scenario, this will act as requirement as well as documentation. We are using this feature scenarios and connecting each steps to our own selenium steps written in java or any other language and running it.

To understand the .feature files and options that we can use for different way of execution, control, etc., read this documentation.

QTP - Object Identification - Prerequesties

While starting a new project or proof of concept or after new QTP installation, we would face the issue in identifying objects as QTP built objects like WinList, WebEdit, etc.; instead everything will be identified as WinObject.

Here are some steps to ensure you did the environment setup RIGHT before start automating.
Did you enabled required Add-ins only while launchingDid you selected "Record >> Record and Run Settings" - This should be based on what type of application you are working with
Windows app - Windows >> Record and run test on any windows applications. Web app - Web >> Record and run test on any open browser.
Did you tried to launch UFT/QTP and then AUT.If its web, ensure browser zoom level set to 100%Try disabling the protected mode in IE for web.Launch UFT and AUT using RUN AS ADMINISTRATORAlso see the Object Identification Methods if you are interested.

Change IE Browser ZOOM settings

Lot of UI automation testers could have faced this problem as we could change the zoom settings while operating manually for our convenience and forgot to reset to 100%.
But our QTP and some other related tools would operate the browser perfectly if browser zoom is 100%. So wee need to change the zoom before start to run the scripts. Its better to have a code snippet in our framework to change this zoom setting right?
Here we go...

1. We can simply change the Registry values before Invoking IE
Function ChangeRegistry Dim objShell Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")  objShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom\ZoomFactor", "100000", "REG_DWORD" Set objShell = Nothing EndFunction This option is very useful. But in real time, lot of customers could have restricted write access to windows registry. So we can try other options.

2. Use IE COM object and Change Settings
Function ChangeIEZoom Dim intZoomLevel, objIE  intZoo…

QTP - Common error messages

Always I am seeing  many of my friends asking for help if any error occurs while running script in QTP without googling for help. How much troubleshooting you guys are doing will directly reflect your knowledge on the tool. I agree, no one knows each and every error occurs in the software. But we can improve our knowledge by googling and doing workarounds...
Whenever the question "How much level you know QTP?" arrows me, always I am comfortable with the answer "below 10%". But after answered, my mind will have an inner thought like, What are the things I have to learn to fulfill the answer I have told because I never used lot of features in QTP.

Here I am listing out some of the errors, situations and what might be the original issue things etc. I hope this will give you some ideas to improve your debug ability and to solve your errors. Kindly correct me If I am wrong in any point.
