Automatisering av regressionstester i agila miljöer (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This project was designed to help Hi3G Access AB’s IT department to get a better overview of the testing state in the different cross functional teams. Furthermore it was designed to identify teams and system where regression tests had the potential and the need of being automated. This information was gathered by conducting a survey designed for all the software testers at the company, followed by performing semi-structured interviews with one tester from each team. For the most suitable system and test case, an automation solution prototype was created with an automation tool using an agile test automation process model. The automation tool was evaluated regarding complexity, userfriendliness, available documentation and performance. The team and the system decided to be most prioritized and suitable was the team that worked with the Enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. The automation tool used for the prototype was Oracle applications testing suite (OATS). The project revealed that many teams at Hi3G Access AB were quite far in the automation process. The tool evaluated in the project presented itself to be straightforward and easy to learn/use. However the tool was missing a widespread discussion board and also lacked free support.

Abstract [sv]

Projektet var utformat för att hjälpa Hi3G Access ABs IT-avdelning få en bättre överblick gällande de olika korsfunktionella gruppers testsituation. Vidare var målet att identifiera team och system där regressionstester hade potential och behov av automatisering. Denna information samlades in genom att utföra en enkät avsedd för alla mjukvarutestare på företaget, följt av att utföra semistrukturerade intervjuer med en testare från varje team.För det mest lämpliga system och testfall skapades en automatiserad prototyplösning genom en agil testautomatiseringsmodell. Automatiseringsverktyget utvärderas gällande komplexitet, användarvänlighet, tillgänglig dokumentation och prestanda.Teamet och systemet som valdes som mest prioriterat och lämpligt var teamet som arbetade med Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systemet. Automatiseringsverktyget som användes för prototypen var Oracle Applications Testing Suite (OATS).Projektet visade att många team på Hi3G Access AB hade kommit ganska långt i automatiseringsprocessen. Verktyget som utvärderades visade sig vara okomplicerat och lätt att både lära sig och att använda. Däremot så var avsaknaden av ett utbrett diskussionsforum ett faktum samt att produkten saknade fri support.
