Modern web applications often offer more functionality than the equivalent native applications. They frequently generate files that are downloaded by the user or emailed to them. A classic example is an airline booking site. Once you have bought your ticket you can check in online and download your boarding pass as a PDF. But how can you test whether this flow is working correctly? This is when you turn to file testing.
If your application relies on file downloads, it’s important to test if the download is successful. An airline booking site is useless if you can’t get your boarding pass or if the pass is inaccurate. However, testing whether these downloads are correct is nigh impossible with traditional automation frameworks. At best, you can check whether a file of approximately the right size was created. You can only validate the content of the file manually.
Functionize allows anyone to create smart AI-powered tests. The File Viewer is a powerful feature that is designed to streamline and simplify file testing. It works by uploading the file into the system. This is then parsed by the AI system to identify the key content and elements in the file. These can then be validated against the expected content to check if everything is working correctly.
