regression automation testing, as a special kind of testing, can
discomfit even a professional experienced person. Especially when the testing
process comes to adaptive design.
The task of testing the
adaptive layout in not easy, at least for the reason that it requires a lot of
time checking visual output of web application’s content and coverage of the
entire matrix of different platforms, browsers and screen resolutions.
Nevertheless, there are
ways to effectively use some tools such as Galen Framework and Applitools Eyes
and their integration into existing test environment.
In the illustrative
example of the website, which was built using adaptive layout approach, I’ll
show how a QA automation specialist can easily use the above tools in order to
avoid as much as possible varieties of visual regressions.
I’ll explain also in
detail the options for building test’s architecture and organization of
workflow with the application’s design as a whole.
