Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: RFC: OpenACS Roadmap Draft

Posted by Dave Bauer on
"For testing, it would be good if we would support a framework that let's anyone write a test by going to a website, clicking around and enter data, thereby generating a storyboard for the testing script to use. There are mechanisms for this out there and Eduardo has proposed some already. This should enable everyone to easily generate test cases once a feature is developed, making sure that no changes break the current system. This should enrich TCL Webtest, which to my knowledge is useful in defining test cases in advance to writing the code, thereby following the ideas of agile development."

Making it easier to define page-flow and user interface tests by example is a great addition to the automated testing features and we definitely want to get that into the toolkit.
