Test execute training

Can someone point me to some training materials for test execute? Videos documents? How does Test Execute work? Can we use just Test execute by itself on any machine or do we need to have Test complete on that machine?

How do we integrate with TFS?

I have 30 test scrips in my Test Complete , how do I convert that into a test suite ? DO I do it by App or by functionality ?

Re: Test execute training

Here's the full helpfile/documentation for TestExecute

 

https://support.smartbear.com/testexecute/docs/

 

It's a standalone execution engine for running the automations.  There is no real UI to speak of.  It's simply for the purpose of runniing automations created in TestComplete without needing to load up the full IDE.

 

As for integrating with TFS...https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/working-with/integration/scc/tfvc/overview.html

I'm not sure what you mean by "converting into a test suite".  You created a project and project suite when you started creating the automation.  That is the primary organization of the automation structure of TestComplete.  You organize your tests within those projects as seems most logical to your needs.  We organize our projects based upon the application being tested.  You can organize the tests within thsoe projects via TestItems into smoke tests, functionality based tests, etc.

Have you considered taking the webinar training that is offered regularly?  These are rather basic questions.

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.

Re: Test execute training

Again, TestExecute is simply the engine to execute what you develop in TestComplete.  If you understand TestComplete, how to build tests there, how to identify objects, then that is most of the work that needs to be done.  Technically speaking, you don't HAVE to have TestExecute to run tests.  It's a good tool, though, so you can develop on one machine and deploy the tests to a different machine that runs TestExecute without needing the IDE overhead.

My company wants to integrate with TFS and Test Execute so taht we can automate the process instaed of amnually running the tests  in Test Complete.

I have been executing the tests in Test Complete for the past 10 months and did not ahev any issues.

Re: Test execute training

Then you shouldn't have any problem executing them in TestExecute.  Just remember that TestExecute executes what you do in TestComplete.... so, if you want something to happen in TestExecute, you need to make sure TestComplete is set up that way... such as Test items, logging, namemapping, etc.
