Introducing Keyword-driven Test Automation

In both agile and traditional projects, keyword-driven testing has proven to be a powerful way to attain a high level of automation—when it is done correctly. Many testing organizations use keyword testing but aren’t realizing the full benefits of scalability and maintainability that are essential to keep up with the demands of testing today’s software. Hans Buwalda outlines how you can meet what he calls the 5 percent challenges—automating 95 percent of your tests with no more than 5 percent of your total testing effort—using the proven, keyword-driven test method he uses. Hans discusses how keywords relate to other automation techniques like scripting and data-driven testing. The information and real-world application Hans presents enables you to attain a very high level of automation with the lowest possible effort.
