An Approach for Vertical Reuse of Unit Test Cases to Automate Integration Testing
  • Researcher: Nils Wild
  • Time: 2020 – ongoing

Test automation is a central requirement in DevOps, which many companies adopt to increase the quality of their products and reduce the time to market. Despite the efforts, most companies still rely on manual testing to assess the functionality of their products. Besides the time to automate Tests, expertise is needed to design suitable test cases and to achieve the necessary testability of the products and automatability for the test cases. Given that the individual teams already invested effort in designing and creating the test cases for individual components, it is desirable to reuse these test cases for integration testing. Reusing information of test cases on one level to test on a different level is referred to as vertical reuse. This project aims for researching approaches to support test automation on the integration level by reusing information contained in those test cases.
