Conference Tracks/Agile Testing

Jan Videsater

Mattias Hedberg & Jan Videsater, Elekta & Swedish Tax Agency

This presentation tells the test automation story of the Swedish Tax Agency with a large IT department, focusing on how we started on a journey from automation as a service to a fully integrated activity within the development teams using executable specifications.

We will describe our learning in the fields of tools, processes & framework. How we used JBehave/JUnit as the driving tools. Our experience of how to construct a framework that is maintainable and robust to future changes. We will give practical examples of how to handle test fixtures when dealing with stories/scenarios and how we radically improved the test development with new processes and  tools like home-grown test runners.

2. TA1/AG1: Bringing together traditional QA and Agile development with Software Lifecycle Integration

As Agile becomes commonplace, QA organizations are facing new challenges with their tooling. Traditional test management tools are still very effective and necessary but QA teams also need to use Agile tools to track their tasks and stories. Agile QA teams are spending more time bouncing between their multi-vendor test management, agile, defect management and requirement tools. The result is wasted time, poor collaboration and limited traceability.

Similar to how functional test automation reduces costs and improves time to market, automating the flow of data between disconnected Test Management and Agile tools can have similar positive impacts within an organization. Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI) is an emerging discipline within Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) focused on delivering a connected software delivery lifecycle. This discipline emerged from the need for organizations to connect their disconnected software delivery disciplines to increase productivity and quality and reduce cycle times, coupled with the reality that software delivery will always include a collection of tools and different disciplines.
