Regression testing phase

When you have a baseline of expected behavior for your application-under-test, you can automate regression testing for subsequent builds.

The regression testing phase consists of five steps:

  1. Restore the testing environment and set the playback options.
  2. Play back the test script against a new build of the application-under-test.
  3. Analyze the results in the HCL OneTest™ UI log.
  4. Use the HCL OneTest UI Verification Point Comparator to determine the cause of verification point failures. If verification points fail because of intentional changes to the application-under-test, update the baseline data using the Comparator.
  5. If necessary, revise your test scripts to use new features in the application-under-test. Then play back the revised test scripts against the current build and re-evaluate the results.
