Modern applications depend on 3rd party plugins, dynamic content, and embedded plugins. Imagine if you use an interactive map on your site. Or maybe you rely on a newsfeed from a 3rd party. You might even embed a syndicated webshop. Testing that these work is vital.
End-to-end (e2e) testing is about testing the complete functionality that affects the end user.
That means testing three things:
1Verifying that the content displays correctly in the UI.
2Validating the functionality as seen by a user.
3Checking what happens in the backend or 3rd party service.
Embedded content and plugins allow everyone to offer their users incredibly rich and satisfying experiences. Gone are the days of custom coding every element of a website or web application.
Users are becoming increasingly savvy and less tolerant of errors, but exhaustive manual testing is impossible and time consuming. However, many test automation frameworks simply cannot see embedded content. That means you have to rely on manual testing instead.
Functionize has taken a unique approach to E2E testing. Instead of trying to drive native desktop and windows applications and requiring that you install an application on every test machine, we have brought the most common E2E scenarios to the cloud by creating a suite of web-based tools that allow you to test not just the UI and UX of your web application, but also databases, excel sheets, pdf files, APIs, text messages, emails, and much more.
Functionize is the industry’s most advanced enterprise AI-powered testing. We help teams break through testing barriers and enable organizations to release faster.
