The testing process has these for steps :
Creating a testplan (if you are using the testplan editor)
Recording a test frame.
Running testcases and interpreting their results.
Creating a testplanDescriptions of individual tests and groups of tests. As many levels of description can be used.
Statements that link the test descriptions in the plan to the 4Test routines, called testcases, that accomplish the actual work of testing.
Recording a test frame
Next, record a test frame, which contains descriptions, called window declarations, of each of the GUI objects in your application. A window declaration specifies a logical, cross-platform name for a GUI object, called the identifier, and maps the identifier to the object’s actual name, called the tag. In addition, the declaration indicates the type of the object, called its class.
The 4Test commands in a collectively perform three distinct actions :
Drive the application to the state to be tested.
verify the state (this is the heart of the testcase).
Return the application to its original state.
The powerful object-oriented recorder can be used to automatically capture these 4Test commands to interact with the application, or to white the 4Test code manually if one is comfortable with programming languages. For maximum ease and power, these two approaches can be combined, recording the basic test case and then extending it using 4Test’s flow of control features.
Running testcases and interpreting results
Next, run one or more testcases, either by running a collection of scripts, called a suite, or, if you are using the testplan editor, by running specific portions of the testplan. As each testcase runs, statistics are written to a results file. The results file and its associated comparison tools allow you to quickly pinpoint the problems in your application.
