Lesson 4 Running Tests
Running tests is the core of the testing process. As your application changes,
you run the manual and automated tests in your project in order to locate
defects and assess quality.
You start by creating test sets and choosing which tests to include in each set.
A test set is a group of tests in a TestDirector project database designed to
achieve specific testing goals. TestDirector enables you to control the
execution of tests in a test set. You can set conditions, and schedule the date
and time for executing your tests.
Once you have defined test sets, you can begin executing your tests. When
you run a test manually, you execute the test steps you defined in test
planning. You pass or fail each step, depending on whether the application's
actual results match the expected output. When you run a test
automatically, TestDirector opens the selected testing tool, runs the test, and
exports the test results to TestDirector.
