Integrating test automation pyramid into the entire dev lifecycle of a leading destination airline
Integrating Test Automation Pyramid Into the Entire Dev Lifecycle of a Leading Destination Airline
The client was trying to move from a manual regression testing environment towards a test automation pyramid during the implementation of Mule API’s, C# applications, and Drools rule where the primary emphasis is:
To improve the slow turnaround (often weeks) for implementing changes and make them available for users
Complement unit testing with some API / integration tests and UI based user journey tests
Coforge worked closely with the customer to assess and analyze their micro services-based system architecture. Based on the findings from the assessment, Coforge proposed and implemented a continuous testing model for code, API, and end-to-end regression testing.
Coforge developed and implemented an automated flow to orchestrate integration from Dev to Ops. The team implemented two different pipelines for legacy and open system development. The legacy pipeline was implemented using Azure DevOps and the open system pipeline using Bamboo. API test automation framework was developed using ReadyAPI and integrated with both the pipelines.
Integrated performance and security testing was to be used early in the development lifecycle. Akamai was used for performance testing and Vera code for security testing. Automated regression execution for nightly dev-build ensured code quality even before the start of functional testing.
Outcome – Coforge Advantage
Key outcomes and benefits for the customer includes:
Reduction in time-to-market with on-demand release capabilities
Increased API automation coverage to 100%
70% reduction in cycle time with DevOps driven build-deploy-test approach
