Ruby Watir Testing
WATIR (Web Application Testing In Ruby) is an open-source and growing library that allows you to create test cases that are easy to read and maintain. No matter in which technology the application is developed, WATIR supports it. Combined with Ruby’s capabilities like connecting to databases, reading datasheets and modularity, it is a powerful alternative to heavy commercial automation tools.

Test Data Design
Our automation specialists analyze the manual test cases/use cases/manuals (already prepared or prepared by us) as the first step. With fair knowledge of the AUT, various testing techniques are used to design test data. The test data is then maintained in a central repository thereafter.
Script generation, enhancement and debugging
We use open source tools to record WATIR script as the starting point. Once we are done with recording, procedures are created for more maintainable test cases. Libraries are created to be used with multiple test cases. We use DOM inspectors like Firebug to understand the properties of the objects used.
Batch running and defect logging
WATIR test cases are either run by using a Test Harness that calls all or some of the test cases or inside a batch file. The results can be stored in a note pad or in HTML using ci_reporter gem. Once a defect is spotted we log that into the bug tracking system.
Following the test library architecture makes the maintenance of the test scripts easier. The object identification and operations on the objects are separated. When application/object undergoes some change the script that identifies the object can be changed so that the test scripts are least affected.
It is always a good practice to prepare an effective bug report. Fixing a bug depends on how effectively you prepare your bug report. At Mindfire we provide daily test report for our client which will help them to stay updated about the project progress. You are welcome to visit our Daily Testing Bug Report page to get details of the service .
