Issue summary

Testers aren’t able to write automation test cases if they are not adept with the automation tools.

Category

Process

Examples

  1. Testers are interested in testing and not all testers want to learn the scripting languages of different automation tools. On the other hand automators aren't necessarily well aquainted with the application, so there are often communication problems.
  2. Testers can prepare test cases from the requirements and can therefore start even before the application has been developed. Automators must usually wait for at least a rudimentary GUI or API.

Resolving Patterns

Most recommended:

  • ABSTRACTION LEVELS: Apply this pattern to get rid of this issue once and for all. It helps you find the best architecture when the testers cannot also be automators.
