7 Design Ideas from Arjuna for Data in Test Automation

Data in Test Automation is More Than Data Driven Testing

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.
