TestJet - Functional Automation Testing

Functional Automation Testing

Perform automated functional testing and speed up your QA process while increasing your testing quality.

Deliver bug-free software to your customers using our state-of-the-art test automation tool powered by machine learning.

What is Functional Testing?

Functional testing is performed to ensure that the software works as intended. Popular functional testing tools allow you to create test scripts to check different application parts.

With TestJet’s automated functional testing tool, you can easily create tests and reproduce them as many times as necessary, thanks to our Record and playback feature, making testing easier.

How Automated Functional Testing Tools can help your project

Speeding up the testing process

As opposed to manual tests, automated functional tests are executed instantly, as often as necessary. So now your team can focus their efforts only on improving your software.

Testing as many cases as necessary

With our powerful commercial testing tool, you can improve test coverage dramatically. Our record and playback approach makes creating tests as easy as recording your actions while exploring your app.

Consistent testing process

Functional test scripts always run the same way, with the same execution time, improving your time management since automation tools turn test execution into a predictable task for your team.

Saving time and money

Using fewer resources and getting more reliable and better results, automated functional testing tools put your team’s focus on software development, avoiding the strain of manual testing on your budget.

Challenges in Functional Testing

Gathering the test requirements

When the requirements are unclear or misunderstood, automating functional testing can lead to imperfect testing.

This is an issue that can only be avoided through clear communication.

Finding gaps in the test plans

If the defined test cases are not appropriately defined, gaps in testing can occur. A thorough analysis of the test requirements can help avoid these gaps in your testing process.

Cover various test configurations

When moving to automate functional testing, it’s necessary to consider your software testing process configuration covered by manual testing, like testing mobile applications and cross-browser testing for web applications.

Types of functional tests

Unit testing

Unit testing checks individual components of a program, looking for any existing issues within the software. The functional testing process is easily automated by writing test scripts.

Regression testing

This testing ensures no errors appear after implementing new features in the application. Functional and regression testing are usually automated since they have to be performed often.

Integration testing

During integration testing, individual software modules are tested as a group, integrating them as a system. Automated testing finds errors that could happen when different modules interact.

System testing

System testing checks the entire application, testing it as a whole. This is a type of black box testing, where the software is tested without knowledge of its inner structure.

Cross-browser testing

In this type of testing, web applications are analyzed when running on different web browsers. Any existing incompatibilities can be found by running the web application on multiple browsers.

FAQ

Which tools are used for functional automation testing?

Automated testing frameworks like Selenium, UFT, and TestComplete perform different kinds of functional testing, like smoke testing and parallel testing.

Knowing and comparing the features of the different testing tools is crucial since choosing the best functional testing tool for your company can affect your testing performance.

Is Selenium a functional software testing tool?

Selenium has become one of the most popular frameworks for functional testing, thanks to its open-source project.

Selenium is not a single automation tool but a group of utilities used to test the functionality of your apps, including Selenium WebDriver and Selenium Grid. Since Selenium is among the best functional testing tools, TestJet integrates Selenium into our automated functional testing tools.

How do automated functional tests help my team?

Test automation brings multiple advantages over manual testing for your team. By delegating running repetitive tasks to an AI, you can ensure consistent and reliable results when performing tests multiple times in a way that’s not possible with human testing.

Also, the fast execution times of automated functional testing make it ideal for performing regression and continuous testing.

Why automate functional tests?

Functional automation testing can increase the scope and reliability of your testing while decreasing the time and money spent running tests. While traditional testing can be expensive and slow, once set, automatic tests can be run repeatedly at no extra cost.

Is functional testing better than non-functional testing?

Functional and non-functional testing are complementary and not directly comparable.

While functional testing tools check the software’s features by running API testing, Smoke testing, and others, non-functional testing aims to measure the software’s performance, usability, and reliability through Load testing and Security tests, among others.

What are the best functional testing tools?

Selenium, TestComplete, and IBM rational functional tester are among the most comprehensive testing tools.

However, every tool has its own strengths and weaknesses, making an analysis necessary before implementing them in your project.

TestJet’s functional automation tool for web testing brings a modern and powerful approach to testing, including easy-to-use tools to perform data-driven testing, smoke testing, user acceptance testing, and more tools to test data. It also supports cross browser testing and simplifies the creation of tests, eliminating the need for experts to design user interface tests.
