Free test suite
When I started, my
goal was to create a set of free tools, which can effectively facilitate
the testing process. This set would include tools for managing tests
and tools for helping in test execution. My plan was to create this
toolkit in a unix way i.e. to build the framework from the
smaller well defined blocks, which would be easily adaptable outside
the framework. I don't like huge toolkits made of tightly integrated
blocks, which are useless outside the toolkit.
As it often happens, life verified my plans. I did not have time needed to achieve my aforesaid goal in full. However, I have some tangible results of my effort, which is LReport. It is a tool for reporting database tables contents. There
are different methodologies describing how to create test cases, how to
manage them. But regardless on the methodology, execution of most of
test cases looks like this: Check the interesting database tables, run
test scenario, check interesting tables again and document your
observations. The purpose of the tool is to help you with the
documenting phase. You can find more details here.
