DOT-Verifier
the first non-regression testing tool
100% database-oriented

Automate your tests with DOT-Verifier!

  • Make sure your test databases are light and constantly up-to-date

  • Build a permanent firewall against bugs

  • Automate non-regression testing

Business Issues

The non-regression testing technology available today often includes constraints:

What is more difficult to compare?

Comparing data that has been manipulated by a scenario is a real challenge

How to maintain test scenarios?

Scenarios must be maintained with the same rhythm as the applications

What is more volatile than a test data?

Nothing is more difficult to reinitialize than test data

How can developers be motivated to maintain test scenarios
when they are already responsible for maintaining the applications themselves?

DOT-Verifier solutions

DOT-Verifier reduces risks for your functional, non-regression testing

Do your important applications undergo constant changes?

Do you need to guarantee the non-regression of your entire system?

Automate your tests with DOT-Verifier!

DOT-Verifier is a test-scenario recording robot that automates your functional, non-regression testing activity. Once scenarios are recorded, they can be replayed automatically, in any order you wish, highlighting differences at any level: the user interface, the database and the spool files. The results can be exploited as PDF comparison reports. Thanks to the high-level automation provided by this solution, testers are 100% autonomous and all of the problems concerning test data are covered.

  • Data-oriented approach: includes overall test coverage (interactive and batch processing), guaranteed relevance of comparisons and automatic data reinitalization
  • End-user-oriented approach: easy to implement and use
  • Automatic generation of functional, non-regression test campaigns for each new application release
  • Easy scenario maintenance
  • Easy integration into all types of change management solutions
  • Complements the NRT tools already in place
  • Fully-automated continuous testing chain
  • Increased test productivity, enhanced application reliability and availability
  • Capitalizing on testing operation processes
  • Total independence with regard to interfaces (client/server, web, etc.)

Functional and technical architecture

DOT Verifier architecture

It’s easy for end-users to record test scenarios directly from the interface they usually use. The DOT-Verifier tool automatically records:

  • all user actions performed in the interface (keystrokes, mouse movements),
  • all screens called,
  • all data used in the database(s) (1) or in external files,
  • all reports generated (PDF or plain text).

Validation allows for:

  • the exclusion of certain screens’ fields that should be systematically excluded from the comparison (date/time, user, etc.),

  • the exclusion of certain fields from the database (such as time stamped fields).

Note that it is possible to return to a database’s original state after recording a scenario, and that each scenario is independent from the others. Because of this, they can be replayed in any order.

For each new application version there is a corresponding replay that contains the related scenarios which will automatically be made available for this new version. PDF reports are generated once the replay has been performed.

  • Modifications to data, recordings and fields
  • Modifications to data structure: (field addition/deletion, size)
  • Modifications made in the user interface
  • Modifications to PDF or text reports

For most test scenario tools, it is very difficult to update an existing scenario after modifications in the programs. Often, it requires complete re-entry of the scenario or script modification.

DOT-Verifier functionalities will help you to facilitate this task:

  • A system of stopping points makes it possible to execute an already-recorded scenario and then take back control over execution of a selected step.
  • All of the values entered on a screen can be modified. Of course, it is also possible to add new entries, for example when a new field has been inserted into a screen.

  • DOT-Verifier can be integrated into Jenkins via plugins. In the framework of setting up continuous testing processes, Jenkins can steer performance of DOT-Verifier scenarios and the delivery of comparison reports.
  • DOT-Verifier can also be integrated into most non-regression testing (NRT) tools on the market, in which case it supplements the reinitialization and comparison part of test data.
