Case Study: Java Desktop Application Technical Testing
By Alan richardson
In this case study you will see different approaches for applying a Technical Testing approach to a desktop Java Application.
Over the course of the videos we will use technical knowledge of Java, and apply it to a MORIM Technical Testing Model: Modelling, Observation, Reflection, Interrogation and Manipulation.
As a result we will explore different ways of observing and interrogating the running application. As we do so we will expand our model of the application and identify ways of manipulating the application.
Some of the things you will learn:
- different ways to start a Java Application and how that impacts your ability to observe
- how to wrap a Java App in a Java project to automate scenarios and explore the application using code
- how to manipulate a running Java application at low levels
- how risk impacts your testing and what to consider when testing technically
This course builds on skills and information developed in the book "Java For Testers", so if you find this interesting, remember to check out JavaForTesters.com and EvilTester.com as well.
This set of videos is based on my EvilTester.com blog post:
