    Automated Acceptance Tests (AAT) can provide huge value, and can automate time-consuming tasks like regression testing, but aren't easy to scale.  Have you tried implementing them only to abandon them later?  Are they fragile?  Do they give a lot of false positives?  Do they take more time to write than the value you're getting out of them?  These are common problems with automated acceptance testing, but there are ways to mitigate these issues.  One great way is to create a very thin automation framework that helps you write the tests faster while reducing the fragility.  Wyn will walk through writing a thin automation framework, illustrating a test-driven approach that yields a framework appropriate for the software being tested.  The resulting tests are very clean and readable, and they become faster and faster to write as the framework evolves.  He will use C# and Selenium but the concepts are applicable to other languages and browser automation frameworks.  He will also illustrate simple approaches that reduce the fragility and maintenance costs of the tests.  Participants will come away knowing how to get started on an automation framework that will be easy to understand and maintain, and that should scale as much as needed.

    Behavior Driven Development allows for high level, plain English tests to be written, and to describe and exercise a system. Unfortunately it is difficult to have these tests encompass all interfaces of a software system, and to reuse them in multiple scenarios. Specifying these tests to run at different levels and times without duplicating work is non-trivial, and frequently produces lots of rework. This presentation will focus on cucumber to provide a robust framework for BDD, but any BDD framework can easily be substituting following guildelines and practices covered in this talk. This is not your typical Cucumber tutorial. We will mostly be focusing on how to utilize Cucumber's flexible structure in combination with the Java language how to write singular tests to run over multiple testing interfaces. This framework will build on the Cucumber basics to provide a generic model that also builds on the standard reports, giving additional information for debugging and traceability purposes. Test runners and inputs will also be discussed, to understand how to create more dynamic testing scenarios.
