Joshua expressed how TestComplete has helped New Dawn: "TestComplete has helped us improve productivity, increase the number of tests written and run daily, and test more items in our application, items that Visual Studio could not test. Also, TestComplete allowed us to integrate Visual Studio and Automated Build Studio.
"TestComplete’s ability to automate user input and actions really helped our project. Writing these tests in Visual Studio took a long time. The ability to record what you are doing and have that run every night in an automated test is amazing. We were able to take our own actions, add a few more lines of code, and our test was written. Having the ability to test the front end proved very valuable.
Write Tests In Minutes Instead of Hours
"Writing tests in TestComplete is a lot faster that our previous methods. TestComplete enables us to write a test in minutes, while writing the same test in Visual Studio took several hours," said Joshua.
"Time is money. By enabling us to write more tests faster, TestComplete enabled us to produce an application more quickly and with fewer bugs. When we released our product we were confident that bugs were not an issue and that the application was stable and functioning as designed."
"TestComplete enabled us to produce a more stable product because we wrote more tests. We were certain that bugs were either known or non-existent. We were able to release our application on time with the confidence that our customers would be satisfied with its performance," said Joshua.
Increased Test Coverage
Joshua described how TestComplete has increased their test coverage: "Before we started using TestComplete, our motto was that if a test took longer than 2 hours to write, it probably wasn’t worth testing. We mostly relied on manual testing to catch bugs and test functionality. With TestComplete, we were able to automate the rigorous and monotonous task of manual testing and implement other usability tests that took too long to write previously. Our number of tests almost doubled, and we test the application much more thoroughly. Currently, we have just over 250 automated tests written in TestComplete. Before we automated our tests in TestComplete, our automated tests written in Visual Studio were run using Automated Build Studio. We run all of our tests nightly."
