I am sharing the approach we took in automating oData services in our custom development project for our customer.


Problem statement / Why we need to automate ?

  1. We are developing 40+ GW Services in large insurance project in a landscape comprising of multiple systems : ERP Core, FS-PM, CRM, BI and other third-party products.
  2. As GW Data providers are wrappers of underlying functionalities, there is always a constant change in the backend systems which requires enormous amount of time in troubleshooting the issues

Solution / What and how we automated GW Services

  1. Developed a simple program to execute the test cases defined in Gateway client tool.
    1.       A configuration table to maintain which test group / test cases to be executed.
    2.       Logs table to maintain the test execution
    3.       Program which reads data from configuration table and execute the tests using Gateway client APIs and logs the test execution.
  2. Executed this program on a daily basis to test the following
    1.       Functional Regression : Does all the functionalities works as with yesterday
    2.       Performance testing : Captures the response time and content length for each test
    3.        Security testing : Is there any “Forbidden” response

Benefits we got

  1. Reduced the manual testing efforts of 5 hours per day resulting in 500 hours of saving for the project in next 6 months (for UAT till go-live)
    1.        200+ GW service operations automated
  2. Proactively monitoring the issues and solving it before the test team report the issues
