Why model based test automation is required?

With the recent trends in the enterprise systems involving agile and scrum methodologies, test automation tools need to be very comprehensive, adopt itself and remain stable to the ever-changing environment.

TOSCA Testsuite follows model based test automation approach that goes beyond scripting methods, provides cost effective, scalable and comprehensive testing solutions.

Explain ScratchBook functionality in TOSCA.

The ScratchBook provides a temporary assistance for executing TestCase subset while developing TestCases. ScratchBook enables the partial execution of individual TestSteps.

ScratchBook also facilitates temporary arrangement and execution of TestCases, so several TestCases, TestSteps or test folders could be arranged together in any desired order and can be executed in ScratchBook.

Explain the content of Project root element in TOSCA.

The project root element acts as a place holder and contains the folders ExecutionLists, Modules, Reporting, Requirements, TestCaseDesign and TestCases.

Could you please explain in briefly what is model based automation framework?
Posted on Jan 18, 2017 by Mahesh.

Model-Based Test Automation facilitates agility and efficiency to your testing practice and shorten your testing cycle.

Model-Based Test Automation model contains all the required information for steering the system under test (without the requirement for scripting or coding) and separately the test cases are written and maintained in plain-English which is maintained and used by business professional. It is only at the point of execution that the business logic contained in the test cases is combined with the steering information contained in the automation model to act upon the system under test.

Model-based test automation provides a more scalable, robust and cost-effective approach to software testing.
