Best Practices in Automated Regression Testing

  • Use a Test Management software: This software is essential for any project larger than a single-developer project. Realistically, you will have far more test cases than you can track and manage individually. You have many test management tools available to you.
  • Maintain a Testing Schedule This will ensure that the final product is tested thoroughly. The schedule will also encourage team members to adjust to a regular testing program.
  • Create a new failing test for every bug found: Visualize your code as having an unambiguous, reproducible problem. All of your tests pass. This means either your current tests are incorrect or your test suite lacks tests. To document the bug, create a new failing test if you find yourself in such a situation.
  • Split Your Test Suite into Smaller Categories: Most likely, your test management tool will allow you to categorize all of your tests. This will allow your team to easily identify each type of test.
