SECOND STEP – UNDERSTAND THE BASIC ABT CONCEPTS

See the diagram below to understand the basics of TestArchitect's project items, the concept of interface mapping (in which user interface objects are identified by their properties), and a quick reference sheet related to Action-Based Testing language.

GETTING STARTED VIDEO SERIES

#1: Create a project
Create a TestArchitect repository, the database which stores your projects. Following that, create a project to hold your test assets.

#2: Create a test module
Establish a simple test case. Then create a test module to house that test case, and learn the functional sections of a well-structured test module.

#3: Map the user interface
Explore the concept of interface mapping, in which user interface objects are identified by their properties. Then use TestArchitect's Interface Viewer to capture the UI objects you need, assign logical names to those objects, and store your mappings in interface entities.

#4: Author the test
Populate your test module with the action lines needed to automate your test case. And explore how to accelerate test authoring with the editor's Content Assist toolset.

#5: Run the test & review the results
Execute your test, and view the results that TestArchitect reports, including moment-by-moment screenshots of the target application during the test.

#6: Create a user-defined action
With no change in functionality, encapsulate your system-level action lines into a user-defined action, for purposes of reusability, readability, and proper Action-Based Testing design. Parameterize your new action to maximize its reusability.
