Partnet Proudly Introduces SeAuto: Test Automation Framework

Partnet Enters the Automated Testing Market with their Open Source Automated Testing Software, SeAuto
Create a robust, browser-based test automation framework with a single command.

SALT LAKE CITY – March 31, 2015

Partnet, Inc. announced today the worldwide release of SeAuto (http://se-auto.com), a robust, open source software testing tool that integrates Selenium’s browser automation with test frameworks. SeAuto combines the best in pre-built and configuration ease to automate testing on multiple browsers and operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS, and Linux to bring users to the next level in automated testing.

Partnet CEO, Don Brown is pleased with the offering and with the results that they’ve seen thus far.

“Our pre-built Selenium Auto Test Framework can save years of effort by avoiding framework development and costly ‘trial-and-error’ in selecting products and creating tests,” said Brown.

Doug Erickson, Director of Software Development at Partnet agrees, noting that “Partnet developed SeAuto to help our testers focus on creating tests, rather than running the tests.” Erickson added, “SeAuto makes it easy to include browser-based testing in a continuous integration (CI) pipeline and enables developers to run these tests before checking in code; that gives better, faster results. It’s our hope that others will find the same value in this effort to bridge the gap between their favorite test framework and Selenium.”
Customization and Integration
SeAuto was created for software testers looking for a pre-built, automated test tool that’s ready-to-go with little setup required (http://www.partnet.com/seauto). Partnet equipped SeAuto to be easily integrated with any CI and with the ability to test on any major browser and operating system.

“SeAuto takes the guesswork and experimentation time out of building a test automation framework, has lower maintenance overhead, and is far more robust than GUI-based, “point-and-click” automation tools,” […]

    Part 3: Software Development Life Cycle — The Solution Design

Part 3: Software Development Life Cycle — The Solution Design

The Solution Design stage begins upon Customer and stakeholder approval of the System Requirements Review (SRR) and its associated artifacts. Solution Design is specific to Scrum projects only. Design is not typically required for Kanban process cycles involving Problem Reports and smaller “break-fix” tasks. Partnet’s Solution Design stage consists of two elements: functional design and technical design.

Functional Design: User stories form the basis for functional design and planning. User stories are short, textual statements corresponding to a specific feature or business need that the software solution must fulfill. Requirement Managers write user stories based on the approved solution requirements. During functional design, user-story reviews are convened with members of the Delivery Team to formally discuss each user story in detail and specify its acceptance criteria. All outstanding questions and assumptions are documented for follow-up with the Customer and other external stakeholders. User stories are then allocated into specific development tasks and subtasks that constitute the Product Backlog.

Technical Design: In parallel with user-story reviews, our development and engineering group prepares the technical design solution. Aspects of the technical design include:

Analysis of necessary changes to the general solution architecture.
Review new interfaces for third parties.
Protection of system security posture.
Identification of required hardware components, operating systems, and network architecture.
Research supporting software technologies and libraries.
Determination of necessary changes to the data model(s).

Partnet convenes an internal design review to collect and incorporate final feedback on the designed solution from Software Developers, Test Engineers, Configuration Managers, Project Managers, security specialists, and support staff. This review focuses on specific items affecting the solution design, such as:

Ensuring the design minimizes development and maintenance costs.
Identifying opportunities for business-user configuration (i.e., administrative utilities that allow the Customer to configure and manage the software without new […]
