ACTION BASED TESTING
Action Based Testing is an example of a keyword-based methodology, as described previously.
Action Based Testing is based on test module elements, which are essentially workbooks comprising the following sections:
- test cases
- actions with arguments
- interface handling, including:
- interface entities
- interface elements
- data-driven testing, using data sets
All test development and execution in Action Based Testing is based on test modules.
An action is a reusable container housing a series of operations and checks.
An automated test execution needs to interact with the application under test through one or more interfaces.
In Action Based Testing, action-based tests can be applied to data sets.
