This is a light-weight project demonstrating research-and-engineering approach to test automation that I teach and practice.
MS Dynamics Great Plains is a unique and extremely complex accounting platform with its own GUI rendering engine making “traditional” tool-based automation not possible.
The engineering solution included the following phases: learning about the product (skilled exploratory testing), value/risk/coverage assessment (heuristic approach), identifying and resolving technical challenges (apply problem-solving and programming skills), implementing reliable/robust/maintainable/scalable solution.
