TEST MANAGEMENT IN ASCENTIAL TOOL

AscentialTest provides a spreadsheet-like interface where the user can create data tables that have a direct relationship with application objects. Scheme is created automatically as the user drags and drops application objects. Data objects of arbitrary complexity can be created using built-in and user-defined data types to match the data requirements of tests. Data validation reduces input errors. There are no drivers or type conversions required.

Test data is available from a simple query in the type expected by tests:

  • Build data structures and tables visually
  • Import test data from .csv
  • Project and plan level data available to provide for global data parameters
  • Pick lists reduce input errors and save time inputting test data
  • Data tables can contain complex data structures including lists and records
  • Special encrypted data parameters available for passwords and other sensitive data
  • Standalone applet available for editing test data
  • Random data generation available
  • Easy access to ODBC databases, ASCII, XML and INI files
