Error analysis | GUI Test Tool for Java, Web and Windows – QF-Test


During the automated test execution error situations most likely will occur. These indicate for example changes or malfunctions in the application, which then require corrections in the source code or the test procedure. For the analysis of such errors the QF-Test run log is of central importance. Let us take a closer look at such a case. In order to simulate a malfunction of the application, the car configurator offers a special mode, which we now activate. Now we restart our previously created test case. A dialog informs us, that an error has occurred. Okay, then we open the run log and are curious, what information we will find in there. The quickest way to the error is the left red button in the toolbar. Here we see the error type and description . The check of the final price has failed. Obviously a different price than expected was calculated What happened? Often helpful for the error analysis are screen shots, which QF-Test generates in case of an error and saves in the log. Here you can actually see the wrong final price and on closer inspection also the cause. The problem lies within the base price of the model, which appears to be zero euro. Seems a small error has crept in. We can now pass on this information to the developers and document it by the QF-Test run log and included screenshot. This was of course a very simple case, but also complex problems can be narrowed down well via the run log generally. Thanks a lot and see you soon.
