Model-Based Testing 101 Model-based testing (or MBT) has recently emerged as a popular approach to transforming and optimizing application testing.  MBT offers significant benefits such as improvement of test coverage, reduction of testing effort and improvement of quality. MBT includes a rich variety of techniques and capabilities that may appear overwhelming to initial adopters. My customers often ask me how to get started with the basics of MBT and how to gradually improve their maturity and capabilities. I am...

In-Sprint Test Automation Practices in Motion So, you’ve decided on adopting In-Sprint Test Automation practices. Now what? In a previous blog we saw the benefits of integrating test steps, automation and data into a singular model. We also saw how automated test scripts are created my integrating code snippets directly into a visual diagram. By creating a model at the beginning of a sprint cycle, testing can occur faster and earlier. But how does this work in...

Demystifying Industry Buzzwords: Test-Driven Development (TDD) vs. BDD vs. ATDD Test-Driven Development (TDD) is just one of many buzzwords in the industry right now. And so it’s understandable that people can get confused. Test-Driven Development (TDD) Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) Acceptance Test–Driven Development (ATDD) DevOps DevSecOps Continuous Testing Model-Based Testing (MBT) The list goes on.

Is it Possible to Achieve In-Sprint Test Automation? Test Automation is not a new concept in software development. Since the rise of Agile and DevOps and things like continuous testing and delivery, there has always been a goal to deliver high-quality software fast. Even though the goal was clear, bringing that idea to fruition proved to be more difficult. Testing teams were often left with an impossible task of manually formulating new test cases, modifying...

Your Test Coverage Matters How much are we testing? And how much testing is enough? These are questions that are in the heart of what testing practitioners call “Test Coverage“. Needless to say, they are top-of-mind in a Continuous Testing and Delivery environment. Testing involves paying close attention to the quality of individual components in a product, always keeping in mind how often and in what ways a customer will use it, hence, the importance of test...

When BDD is Not a Cure for All Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) is more commonly known for its use of the “given-when-then” format to defining each user story, facilitating clear alignment of a user story to a desired business outcome. But BDD has had its ups and downs over the years. More recently, BDD has been on the spotlight once again, as Agile and DevOps initiatives integrate and come together as “one” for the purpose of delivering on...
