About

TestComplete is an automated testing tool, designed for advanced and novice testers alike, to create, manage and run tests for any desktop, Web or rich client software. It does not depend on any development tool, or application type. Your tests will work fine with any application regardless of whether it was created in C#, C++, Delphi, Java, or any other development language. TestComplete is the most efficient tool of its kind, in regards to the price and quality of the product.

This guide takes a refined approach towards quickly learning the capabilities of TestComplete, using relevant illustrations and practical examples. Each example is consonant with true-to-life situations, which testers would come across sooner or later, while automating tests. With the help of these examples, we will look into complex themes and learn how to test web applications in the most effective manner.

Throughout the first chapters, we will be dealing with some fairly simple tasks that are of interest to people new to TestComplete, gradually moving towards advanced-level automation approaches, which are riveting both for novices and experienced TestComplete users.

We will explore various methods of tests creation for study (e.g. recording, modification and manual coding with use of different approaches), learn test creation using different methods(each of them being suitable for a specific use-case), learn how to distinguish between different methods for accessing controls elements, selecting a most appropriate approach for each of the cases in view. We will also undertake distributive testing for the sake of shortening the overall time for test launches.

This practical guide will help you to answer frequently asked questions relating to automation testing and set the tone for the correct direction of your advancements, which are instrumental to organizing automation in your project.

Gennadiy Alpaev

Gennadiy Alpaev has been working as a test automation engineer since he graduated in 2003. During these 10 years he has worked with many automation tools including TestComplete, SilkTest, Selenium, and Squish and participated in more than 10 projects, both as an employee and on contract basis. He gained his first experience of writing tutorials when he created a tutorial on SilkTest together with his colleague Mykola Kolisnyk. His second big project on test automation was a complete tutorial on TestComplete. These two tutorials are available online in Russian. Starting in 2011, he is running online and on-site courses on TestComplete and test automation for independent students and companies. He is also actively participating in different forums trying to help others solve problems as fast as possible. The main principles that he follows in his training are simplicity and brevity, especially when explaining complex things.
