    New troubleshooting articles for Test Studio Load Testing

    Now that we have a new Load Testing architecture, we're re-organizing the troubleshooting articles to bring everything up to speed. Most of the old issues with load have been resolved. For those that remain, we're creating new articles to help you resolve them more easily. First, if you don't get any load traffic when making requests to localhost, use the machine name or IP address. Simple. Next, some load tests still record duplicate dynamic targets. While there's no way to avoid this, you can make sure to select the repeated variable in all steps it is used ...

    More Data and Better Analytics Lead to Better Quality Decisions

    Software development and testing processes have the potential to create a lot of useful data. With fast computers and new software tools, we can use that data in innovative ways to dramatically improve how we look at problems and make decisions. Gartner has named data and analytics as a disruptive force in the testing industry in its latest automated testing Magic Quadrant. Today, for our decisions regarding characteristics like quality, “doneness”, impact of defects, and test coverage, we all too often rely on our experience, instincts, and “gut feel”. While those decisions are sometimes correct, much of the time ...

    Power of Dynamic Test Lists

    Test Lists are a great way to organize tests and get execution results summarized. Telerik Test Studio includes the standard “Static” Test List that allows you to add existing tests from your project, but there is a small maintenance penalty for using the static list because each time you add a new test to your project it must be added to one of the existing test lists. One of the underlying principals of Test Studio is to decrease the overall maintenance cost traditionally associated with automated testing. Within the world of test lists we have done this by creating the ...
