Agile: Where does baangt fit in?

baangt supports all your agile mindset ever dreamed of - you can start right away with TDD, where you create Test-Cases before you even write code (Just don’t forget to set the test case version number to a future version).

Increment testing is the next logical consequence, where you’ll use your test cases defined in the previous step to verify results from the current sprint. Once run, optimized and stable you’ll want to keep the system at least at this good state, so you’ll want to enrich your regression test set with those successful tests from your last sprint.

On the unrelated subject of negative test cases:

Don’t forget how important negative test cases are. Those are test cases, where you need the system to stop processing, because it is not supposed to accept a value or process or state. baangt makes this very simple for you! Define your parameters as with any other test case and set value of TC Expected Error to X. That’s it, baangt will be happy, when the testcase fails and raise an error, when the test case is successful.

In CDCT and Service tests (parts of the testing pyramid) you’ll use the API functions of baangt to ensure stable and proper outcome from your (micro-)services.

Finally in E2E-Testing baangt will help you to organize and keep track of your complex E2E-Scenarios where you might start with mainframe or SAP-Systems to create master data, then change to WEB to use the created master data in your frontend test cases and finally call some APIs to verify results in the backend systems were as expected.

We can do that with every software, what’s so special about baangt?

Thanks for asking. Well, you might be able to achieve that with expensive software like Tricentis Tosca or HP Runner, but think again. How long does it take you to transfer information from business department via IT-Guys to the test automation planners, experts, implementers and testers? Is the test case still relevant by then?

With baangt being free and open source and mostly depending on MS Excel you don’t have expensive nor complex client installation procedures. Everybody in your organization can record test cases and run them for validation by themselves. You’ll still want to keep your skilled guys in central test automation or central test management, but how much faster will they be? How much better will your regression test rate be and how much more motivated will the whole organization be, when things start to move faster than they’re now (if you’re still moving at all)?
