Visually mapping application test coverage with automated test tools

Has anyone developed (or worked in an environment that is used this) a mechanism of mapping how much of the software we cover by running our automated tests Its one thing being capable of providing a statistic on what percentage of your tests were ran, passed, etc but its an entirely different matter being able to say with any definite justification that - the automated test suite(s) covers x% of the application. Imagine your software under test as a geographical landscape. If we could develop a heat map view that visually represented what geographical areas of the application our tests visited or exercised methods\ functions within, then we could say with some level certainty what coverage we have obtained. I believe something similar is in use in the gaming\ financial world but has anyone any experience of this in other areas

"Your personal ROI" or "Why do YOU automate tests?"

What factors make you automate something besides "it's timesaving when done right" or "when it's stable enough" I do because - it's fun - to not have to do the same thing over and over (e.g. type in fields) - it "feels" to save time even it sometimes doesn't (feel productive, but only when not overdone) - write less testcase documentation as the details are in code (which is readable) - the regression test cases I do can be a good start for performance/load-testing (just-in-case-thinking)

What's the best tool for automated regression execution evidence capture?

Many automated test tools provide only pass/fail/warning messages when reporting testing results. For validation purposes, it is essential to have evidence during key points of testing. What are the best automated test tools out there for capturing evidence (i.e. screen shots) during execution of an automated regression suite

Gaining automated testing experience.

I have very little automated testing experience. I can't get it through a current job so how can I increase my knowledge on the subject to at least get my foot in the door of another company. Are there any open source automated testing suites that I can download Also, do I need to build my own website to test on or is there a website out there I can legally "practice" on

Do you always design manual test cases and then automate?

Or do you sometimes skip the manual test case creation

What is the latest evolution for automated functional testing tools?

Like to know what are the key winning factor (beside being automated) for such software (COTS or Open source). It will be good to share the "gaps" (if any) in the software and how it can be complemented. Some areas that I can think of for considerations are robustness, "gap" self-analysis, "scavenging" capability, ROI based, security geared (vulnerability and threat identification), etc I found a list of possible established COTS as below: * Borland Software SilkTest * Compuware TestPartner 6.2 * HP QuickTest Professional 10.0 * IBM Rational Functional Tester * Seapine Software QA Wizard Pro

[GET] automated unit testing for agent systems.

Although agent technology is gaining world wide popularity, a hindrance to its uptake is the lack of proper testing mechanisms for agent based systems. While many traditional software testing methods can be generalized to agent systems, there are many aspects that are different and which require an understanding of the underlying agent paradigm. In this paper we present certain aspects of a testing framework that we have developed for agent based systems. The testing framework is a model based approach using the design models of the Prometheus agent development methodology. In this paper we focus on unit testing and identify the appropriate units, present mechanisms for generating suitable test cases and for determining the order in which the units are to be tested, present a brief overview of the unit testing process and an example. Although we use the design artifacts from Prometheus the approach is suitable for any plan and event based agent system. Go to below for details. http://www.mediafire.com/qx3bep5ibl22e1z

Why is there always such a big push for automated testing?

In the real world you almost always end up with (at best) a combination of manual and automated testing.
