I have a quick question.
I am the lead embedded tester in my team that has done very well in the uptake of Agile.
Now having successfully gotten the team to follow best practice in pretty much every other area of Agile Software development, I now want to push the boat out a little by seeing if we can actually extend the developers' tests to form the basis (or at least part of it) of our Acceptance Tests.
Currently the practice is that we refine the Acceptance Criteria once a story is in play, as part of our iteration activities, and that process in turn serves out or Acceptance tests.
The technical tester then automates the tests (identified as automation candidates) while the alternative flows and negative testing scenarios are manually run and validated as the main part of the Acceptance Tests.
The tester writes all the tests in Selenium DE only and at the moment too as far as I am aware the devs do too.
The devs as stated earlier, currently practice TDD.
My challenge is how to make better use of their assets by finding a way to extend their tests to at least form part of the basis of our Acceptance Tests.
I suspect however that selenium may have some limitations that may not make this ambition possible though. So in that case can someone advise what the best OS tools out there that can help will be? (preferably something light on tecchy savviness as I am not a `technical' tester at all :-)
I hope I haven't put all to sleep yet with my long message, but I thought as much background as possible would be germane at this point, so kindly do forgive me.
On that note u shall look forward to hearing your always illuminating ideas and experiences!
