TDD (test driven development) and BDD (behavior driven development) are unique software development techniques that differ in what they are testing and how they are testing it. Despite their similar names, they serve distinct purposes. What Is TDD? TDD stands for test...

Why automate UI testing
Improve quality and save costs with GUI testing tools for every technology.
QA professionals know that UI testing is essential to a comprehensive test strategy, because it provides critical feedback from the user’s perspective. But this requires significant effort: validating visual details like images, colors, and fonts as well as every aspect of the application’s functional behavior — including its controls, navigation, error messages, data entry handling, and more. Comprehensive GUI testing is time-consuming and expensive, especially when tests must be repeated as part of a regression suite or for cross-browser/cross-device compatibility. Automated tests save time and costs by executing in a fraction of the time required for manual testing. Test automation conserves system resources by running overnight and in parallel, across multiple browsers and platforms. Automation also frees test personnel from routine tests so that they can focus on more challenging and exploratory testing. The improved test coverage possible with test automation creates confidence that an application is ready for release with the quality that users demand.
Effortlessly cover more user scenarios and reduce test maintenance.
An important part of UI testing is verifying typical use cases. For example, a typical use case for a hotel booking website includes searching for an available room, selecting one, entering reservation details, and confirming the booking. When the test should be successful for the data values provided, it is called a “happy path scenario.” Functional testing also validates the behavior of the application when no rooms are available for the desired date (the “sad path”) as well as when the user enters out-of-range dates for a reservation or an invalid credit card number (the “bad path”). Ranorex Studio’s data-driven testing automates the process of repeating a test for multiple data values so you can effortlessly cover the happy path,
“The large amount of test data that had to be entered manually before over and over again can now be entered easily by Ranorex Studio. This saves a lot of time for other testing efforts. Also, since the automation covers a large area of the software in a short time, bugs are discovered much earlier.”

GUI object recognition
Reduce test maintenance with Ranorex Spy and the Ranorex object repository.
Robust GUI test automation begins with the reliable object identification provided by Ranorex Spy. This tool can be used alone or from within the Ranorex Studio environment to deliver industry-leading recognition of GUI objects and controls, and ensure that each user interface element is uniquely identified using the powerful RanoreXPath syntax. Information on identified objects can be shared with team members through snapshot files, or stored in the Ranorex object repository for use in automated tests. The object repository in Ranorex Studio manages identified UI objects, so that they are editable and re-usable across testing projects. Features of the repository include the ability to assign meaningful names to repository objects to make them more maintainable, set default values, or link objects to parameter values. Ranorex Studio tools support best practices in automated test case design, including separation of test data from procedures, use of local and global parameters to pass values, and easily reusable code modules that can be shared by the entire team.
Easy-to-use tools for beginners and experts
Shorten the learning curve with capture-and-replay for codeless automation plus a full IDE.
With Ranorex Studio, every member of the team can build automated tests for desktop, web or mobile software with graphical user interfaces, regardless of programming ability. The Ranorex Recorder provides reliable capture-and-replay functionality for
Tools for integration and reporting
Foster communication and collaboration by integrating Ranorex Studio with your existing toolchain
Ranorex Studio GUI automation projects are easy to integrate with other automation tools that your team may already be using, such as continuous integration solutions like Bamboo, issue tracking solutions like JIRA and Bugzilla, source code management tools such as Git, SVN and Microsoft Team Foundation Server, test management solutions like Jira, and load testing tools such as NeoLoad.
Ranorex Studio produces straightforward and comprehensive test reports to reduce debugging time. View reports in Ranorex Studio, or formatted as a PDF and sent automatically by email. To get the fastest feedback, you can even view reports while testing is in progress. Choose whether or not to generate detailed logs, produce a JUnit-compatible report, or create a custom report template. Debug errors by jumping straight from the test report to the failed step in the test case. Use Ranorex predefined report levels to select messages by type such as “warning” or “error,” and include screenshots and snapshots in reports to aid in the debugging effort.
