Automation In Testing: Selecting Codified Oracles In Automation
What99 Minute Workshop
Your automated checks are only as good as your oracles. You’ve identified the right seam, you're managing all your data, your actions are clean and it’s deterministic but your assertion is no better than assert true is true. This is where oracles come in.
An oracle is how we answer the question, is there a problem here? It’s critical that you fully understand what you are trying to check. For example, you are checking a login flow via the UI. You enter the right credentials and click next, what are you going to assert on to confirm you are logged in? The URL? Content of the page? The fact you are no longer on the login page?
Once you’ve identified your oracle you then have to find the right tooling to implement it. In this workshop we’ll explore multiple scenarios and explore multiple ways in which we can codify oracles.
- Identify different ways of asserting in automated checks
- Determine what assertion approach to use as part of an automated check
- Identify tools to use for a specific assertion approach
