Keep IT Green provides targeted methodological extensions to native eggplant scripting. These methods lead to a high reusability and variability of the test scripts and allow the configuration of the entire test management. All parameter data is stored in the central, audit-proof repository. Organisation and administration takes place centrally in TA Studio by the test engineer and analyst.
KIG parameter management in TA Studio is divided into system parameters for KIG configuration with adaptation to the customer`s test environment and infrastructure as well as the test case parameters - they provide maximum flexibility during test execution.
One of TA Studio's KIG methods in Test Management is to make it easy to use parameterized test scripts. Parameters are entered and managed using the forms provided by TA Studio. Scripts access these parameters using methods provided in the TAS-EEP library for Sensetalk.
While the parameter sets are created by the TAS Engineer, they can be modified by the TAS Analyst, e.g. to add or change input parameters for a created test case, since no scripting knowledge is required.
TA Studio (as administration and control unit) represents the central coordination instance between the eggplant-based development platform (incl. EEP method) and the administrative test activities, thus allowing both the parameter-supported configuration of TA scripts and the variable handling of execution procedures.
The entire KIG suite (with TA Studio as GUI, KIG repository as RDBMS) thus provides a methodologically unique and highly efficient procedure in the TA development and test laboratory. Existing test scripts of common procedures can be integrated.
