Six New Test Management Features in QAComplete 9.7

January 27, 2012
The Test Management solution QAComplete 9.7 has been out for around 3 months now. In that time we've had the opportunity to implement for many clients and evaluate the new feature set in the real world. Billed as a solution comparable to HP's Quality Center there are some interesting new features to help teams manage their QA process here. With 3 months of use under our belts our impression is that SmartBear have been listening to their client base. They have restructured the way testcases are managed but retained the core traceability and visibility features.

Exporting Test Management Results

January 17, 2012

This involves selecting the data you wish to export (usually...

The idea behind this is that ultimately you can show that every testcase was run and that every one passed. So for example on test cycle 1 you may get... my_test_case_A:   failed my_test_case_B:  passed my_test_case_C:  passed Then on cycle 2 you get.... my_test_case_A:   passed The aggregated test management information would then show the following: my_test_case_A:   passed my_test_case_B:  passed my_test_case_C:  passed So we’re looking for the latest result for each testcase and showing that result as if all the tests have been run in one go. Very misleading when you consider it from that perspective....
