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...
Automated Regression Testing Tools
Robust automated regression testing with codeless tools and expert support
What Is Regression Testing?
Regression testing is the practice of testing software after code changes or other updates. This ensures that the software is still functioning as expected, without issue. It also helps to ensure the stability of the software for users.
Ranorex’s tools help you automate regression testing to give you fast feedback and the ability to execute more test cases. Increase the efficiency of your regression testing with Ranorex.
How to Do Regression Testing
Regression testing gives you feedback about changes to your application and the ability to respond to it quickly. While there are different ways that regression testing can be performed, the steps generally include:
- Detect changes: Automated regression testing allows you to detect changes to the source code that might impact functionality or other features.
- Prioritize the changes: Determine which of the changes is most important to test first with the testing tools.
- Decide on Entry Point: Determine where you can begin the test cases for each change you want to test.
- Decide on Exit Point: Determine where you can exit the test cases for the changes you want to test.
Schedule the tests: Schedule the tests in Ranorex Studio and execute the tests to determine whether the changes in the source code affect functionality or features
Why Use Ranorex’s Regression Testing Tool?
Ranorex Studio can make your regression testing efficient and effective. Maximize your resources with powerful automated testing to ensure the quality of your application.
Code updates can affect usability on one device without affecting it on another. Defects may present differently on different devices. Ranorex Studio is compatible with desktop, web, and mobile applications, allowing you to conduct regression tests across devices.
Efficient Testing for All Experience Levels
Easy-to-use and codeless, beginners to experienced testers can launch regression tests quickly.
Reliable Object Recognition
Build stable tests with reliable object recognition. Preserve element identification even when the UI changes.
Ranorex Studio integrates with your complete toolchain. Integrate with a source control solution such as GIT or Team Foundation Server (TFS), or take advantage of Ranorex Studio’s deep integration with Selenium. Make use of our built-in integrations with Jira and TestRail.
Benefits of Ranorex Automated Regression Testing
Get the most out of your resources with Ranorex Studio, which uses codeless tools and full IDE for rapid automation. In fact, Ranorex users report a 78% efficiency increase over manual testing.
A shareable object repository keeps your test code separate from UI element definitions. When problems do arise, use maintenance mode to repair failing tests on the fly.
Ranorex webinars feature a Q&A with our experts so your team will receive the training and information they need to automate regression testing. Our regression testing tools are designed to be used by both beginners and experts alike.
Regression Testing: A Case Study
A Global 500 professional services organization faced challenges in their regression testing. These issues included maintaining existing automated tests due to changes in the UI and running tests designed for desktop apps on cloud VMs. The company selected Ranorex Studio as the solution, one that would allow them to improve their regression testing.
In their evaluation, the company noted the ease of use and excellent object recognition of Ranorex Studio, as well as Ranorex’s helpful and responsive support team. Ranorex Studio helped the company:
- Increase their testing efficiency
- Shorten test cycles
- Improve their technical skills and knowledge
- Achieve a robust and reliable automation
The company also gained a 10–20% increase in test automation productivity with Ranorex Studio.
- Ranorex Driver: Extend the power of Ranorex to tests written using the Selenium framework.
- Ranorex Spy: Explore and analyze the UI to identify controls and UI elements for desktop, mobile, and web apps.Ranorex Studio offers robust GUI automated testing that is easy to use and maintain. It includes:
- Ranorex API: Get unrivaled object recognition with the .NET framework of your choice.
Automate the Most Challenging Test Cases
Ranorex Studio supports technologies from desktop, web, and mobile applications. Features such as conditional execution, nested loops, soft assertions, and data-driven and keyword-driven testing will help you solve your most difficult automation challenges.
Empower Your Team with Codeless Automation
The powerful capture-and-replay functionality of Ranorex Studio lets you automate test cases, add field validations, and capture screenshots—all without coding. Users can drag and drop GUI elements or user code modules into recorded actions and quickly run automated tests. For maximum efficiency, build data-driven tests with parameters or conditions.
Provide a Full Development Environment
Our full IDE for C# and VB.NET includes productivity features such as intelligent code completion, tools for debugging and refactoring, automation helpers, and more.
Rely on GUI Object Recognition and Management
Ranorex Studio’s matchless GUI object recognition helps build stable regression tests. Identify controls, search for multiple UI elements, create snapshot files, recognize related elements by preceding- and following-sibling relationships, and more. Ranorex’s object repository helps you easily manage and share identified UI elements.
Scale Your Test Execution
Ranorex Parallel Runner tests in parallel on physical or virtual servers. The deep integration with Selenium also allows you to distribute test execution. Get cross-browser regression tests, conduct data-driven testing, and generate robust test reports.
Customize Your Regression Test Reports
Our easy-to-read test report includes screenshots and detailed error logs. Customize the report for your needs and reduce debugging time by jumping to a failed test step directly from the test report.
