Data Driven Testing

Data driven testing is a useful feature for the following scenarios:

  • When business users would like to have ownership over the test data in your automated tests
  • When you have multiple data permutations and you would like to loop through data sets
  • When you would like to perform multiple calculations on your data and use Excel as a method of deriving the fields

Provar has Read and Write APIs to read data from an Excel sheet or a Database and write data back. Refer to Read Data From Excel and Write Data Into Excel for more information.
