Keyword Driven Test Automation Framework http://www.onestopsoftwaretesting.com/Page 3
1. Introduction
The way software industry moved from manual testing to test automation, it is nowmoving towards Business Process Automation. Business Process Automation workstowards making automation frameworks more and more meaningful to the FunctionalSubject Matter Experts by involving them in Test Automation as much as possiblethereby making Test Automation business driven. To keep pace with the latest trendsin the industry and to have an edge over its competitors, it is important for a testingorganization to adapt itself to this new approach. One tool which is in line with thisapproach is
Mercury’s Business Process Testing
. Being Industry’s first web basedtest design solution; BPT is one step further to the Keyword Driven Test Automationapproach.For any Software Testing Organization, moving to a new tool like BPT is a big step.For it to justify this big step, it is important for the organization to have successfullyimplemented the Keyword Driven Test Automation Approach. This is because, it iseasy for a project to implement BPT if it is already following keyword drivenapproach than for a project which is not. One of the
benefits
of using this approach isthe automation
effort saved due to reusability
of the keyword components acrossdifferent applications. This benefit is realized when the extent of reusability is high.This is possible when the type (eg. Web, VB, SAP, Delphi etc) is common acrossapplications to be automated, because keyword components built with a particular QTP/WinRunner Add-in can be reused only with applications that can work with thatAdd-in.Today, most organizations are developing web based application as against clientserver or mainframe applications. In some instances, organizations are convertingtheir applications from legacy systems to web. Considering all this, it makes businesssense for Testing Organizations to go for 
Keyword Driven Test AutomationFramework for Web-based applications.
2. Purpose
This document is an attempt to build a Keyword Driven Test Automation Framework which can be used
across different web based applications
. In this approach, theendeavor is to build a lot of application independent reusable keyword components sothat they can directly used for another web application without spending any extraeffort. With this framework in place, whenever we need to automate a web basedapplication, we would not need to start from scratch, but use the applicationindependent keyword components to the extent possible and create applicationspecific components for the specific needs.
