Test cases are becoming an increasing risk in maintenance with the exponential pile up in sprint after sprint. It’s like sowing a magic bean and watching it rising sky high and couldn’t do anything about it. With increasing amount of test cases in the product, regression testing becomes a night mare without much automation to support. Agile testing advocates testing the behaviour of the product than spending time in writing test cases and maintaining it. Specification by example is a powerful way of testing the behaviour of the product features by automating what is necessary.
The automation pyramid clearly states that we need to spend more effort in automating the unit level, service level, Component level and integration tests than spending time on UI testing. Many of the traditional automation methods still focuses on UI automation than the service level automation. Writing down examples in agreement with business personnel and automating them even before development complete is an efficient mechanism of building Quality inside the product.
