Re: Day 1 - API Testing vs. UI Testing

Hello, my name is Robert Martin and I've been using the SmartBear UI testing tool TestComplete for over 17 years in various vertical spaces including Point-Of-Sale applications, eCommerce web stores, pharmaceutical clinical trials, and healthcare patient documentation.

Currently, I'm overseeing the test automation of a custom built web application for tracking patients who are seeking transfer from traditional hospital acute care facilities to long term acute care/rehab healthcare facilities.  This project involves a variety of automation tests to check PDF documents, database output, and general application workflows for both successful and unsuccessful referal processes.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

Re: Day 1 - API Testing vs. UI Testing

Same here.  Are you working on a custom application or are you automating a third party application?

I've used TC for all sorts of testing, but my biggest project has been for a .Net (and then later web version) of enterprise software for the manufacturing industry.

Re: Day 1 - API Testing vs. UI Testing

Relative UI Testing newbie here - been working with TC for about 5 months now.  Started from scratch having to learn the ins-and-outs of TC, python, and how TC integrates with our Windows application objects, etc. Since, I started out fresh, I was able to design the process however I wanted, and I believe I came up with a pretty unique design to aid in creating/updating tests faster and easier, very little maintenance, and allows anyone to create tests without first learning TC/python/etc.  I compared my design to another teams (that's been using TC for 5 years now) and if my calculations are correct, I'll be able to reduce the amount of code we have to maintain by over 95% or more.  Not sure if my design will stand the test of time yet, but I'm very happy with the way it's come out so far. Smiley Happy

btw...the hardest thing we've come across so far is VST's (Virtual String Trees) - in a Delphi Development environment. We did a ton a reseach (on here and other sites) trying to find a good solution. We finally figured out a way handle them, but I wouldn't say it's a great solution. If anyone has experience with VST's (especially using Python), I would definitely like to hear more about your experiences and how you figured out solutions for them.
