After You Map the AUT

Introduction

After You Map the AUT
After a mapping session, start the AUT and compare it to the application map. Take
steps to correct inaccuracies before you begin generating scripts. The quality of the
scripts you generate is directly related to the quality of the application map. For
information about analyzing and preparing the application map for testing, see
Chapter 4, Developing and Working with the Application Map.
Testing the AUT
After you create and fine-tune the application map, you can:
Insert and run Pilots in functional areas of the AUT to uncover severe defects.
Compose Pilot scenarios that simulate user action sequences in the AUT.
Compose Pilot mix-ins to test the random interaction of different functional
areas in the AUT.
Create Test Suites to organize and track the scripts that your Pilots generate.
Use the AutoPilot to automatically run multiple Pilots, Test Suites and scripts
as a batch job -- on your local machine.
If the AUT is written in Visual Basic or Visual C++, use the TestCodeChanges
add-in for Visual Studio to run scripts that test the changes that you have made
to the AUT source code files.
