Abstract:


The Python Test Framework is a test automation tool to manage and distribute the execution of web-based functional testing. This paper presents the introduction of Python Test Framework, Jenkins and implementation of the test automation tools integrated and managed by Jenkins, the continuous integration platform, to further improve the testing efficiency as well as minimizing the effort and risk in software testing. The study were done by comparing the solution presented against the method usage of the test automation tools without the continuous integration platform and manual testing in order to gathered a concluded fact data of the test readiness effort, test execution effort, test efficiencies and the effectiveness coverage in the area of testing. The analysis showed the presented implementation able to reduce the overall testing effort up to 21% and improve the testing execution to be more manageable which eventually lower the risk for a retest probability and reduce the maintenance intervention.
