Explore different shapes data takes in test automation frameworks and related design ideas
When testers talk about data in test automation, they mostly talk about Data Driven Testing. Many a times, data which is not even driving the tests as per its flow, is put under the umbrella of data driven testing. In Arjuna (https://arjuna-taf.readthedocs.io/), I've categorised the data requirements into 7 (or more) areas. Some examples include data references, data entities, data resources and of course data driven testing. It is not an Arjuna presentation. I will discuss ideas from these implementations so that the audience can think about them and implement their variants in their own test automation frameworks.
