KlarSynt Tools: A tool for automating configurations of test environments
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Preparing dedicated environments for testing often requires time consuming, manual configurations to be made on databases and the Windows Registry. A proposed Windows application could improve the efficiency and accuracy of such settings by automating the processes and providing a user-friendly graphical user interface. On behalf of Ninetech, a consulting company, such an application was therefore developed - KlarSynt Tools. This application was to enhance the company's previous methods of configuring test environments by removing the need of manual tasks and the use of an unoptimized tool called Verktyg.
In the development of the application features such as connecting to servers, retrieving data from databases, and automatic configurations of the Windows Registry was implemented. Problems such as automating manual tasks had to be dealt with for providing accuracy of the configurations. The usage of development patterns such as MVVM was also utilized in the project to provide flexibility in the program code, and in that way prepare the software for future development. Finally, user-friendliness was integrated into the application interface to provide efficiency in the usage of the application.
This project resulted in that a Windows application was developed to accurately and efficiently configure settings to a database and the Windows Registry. The developed application showed to significantly reduce the number of steps required and the time taken to perform the configurations in the old process.
