What is Mind Map?

Visual representation that provides a creative way to logically plan the testing, it is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, works and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those.

 Mind maps tools can have notes, links, nodes that can be unfolded and folded, Zoomed and secreted to add more details into the map.

It can be used in variety of testing activities like requirements analysis, test design, testing planning, measuring test coverage etc.

They can also be used to granular level like validation of test case or depicting steps of a complex test case.

In computer science is breaking a complex problem into parts that are easier to conceive, understand, program, and maintain which is nothing but Decomposition.

  • Draw branches radiating from center to represent pages
  • Draw branches to represent elements
  • Draw branches to represent test case
  • Keep sentences in each branch short

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.
