Part I – What’s Required for an End to End Data Modeling Test Framework


Part I – What’s Required for an End to End Data Modeling Test Framework

Overview


Data Model testing is increasing in popularity with tools such as TOSCA and GraphWalker and honestly I must say it is an ingenious way to develop tests and becoming ideal for agile development teams.  The purpose of this simple article is to provide you with:

  • Suggested tools and software products required to learn data model test automation (feel free to choose other tools).
  • Provide a recommendation for a holistic approach to test management, testing and test automation.  Many test automation practitioners and companies treat test automation as a separate activity however I sit in the camp of those who include it in their overall approach to testing.

The diagram below is intended to support developing your Test FrameWork using the following techniques:

  • Selecting tools/products for code development, test management, automated test launch and reporting
  • Building the project as a Maven Java project
  • Using Maven to manage your project’s dependencies
  • Download additional resources/libraries by using Maven
  •  Provide a high level idea of how to build your Test Framework


Have fun and good luck and we will continue this discussion in subsequent articles.
