The VIP Test Modeller overview

What is The VIP Test Modeller?

The VIP Test Modeller provides Model-Based Test Automation for commercial, homegrown and open source frameworks. Automated tests and data are generated automatically from flowchart models that are quick-to-build and easy-to-maintain, and can be created for UI, API, and databases testing. Mathematical algorithms generate every test case needed to "cover" the model, including the negative scenarios and outliers often missed in testing. The rigorous tests update with the central flowchart models, rapidly and rigorously testing fast-changing systems.

Test design in The VIP Test Modeller is built upon visual flowchart models, using a model-based approach to generate rigorous automated tests. A range of connectors and importers accelerate the modelling process, importing requirements and BDD specifications, as well as existing test cases, message traffic, log files, and more. A UI Recorder and page object scanners can also be used to build models of existing systems, before applying coverage algorithms to generate optimised test cases.

The test cases cover all the logic contained in the model, and come equipped with the test data and automated test scripts needed to execute them. Over 500 dynamic test data functions define synthetic test data for every possible test, including the negative scenarios and outliers often missed in testing. The test data resolves "just in time" during test execution, while data can additionally be found automatically from a range of back-end systems, for complete and always up-to-date test data.

Defining automated tests is just as quick and simple, picking from automated actions using a fill-in-the-blanks approach. Action packs can be parsed and imported from existing frameworks, combining the simplicity of visual test design with the flexibility of coded approaches. The VIP Test Modeller then compiles the automation logic and data into executable scripts as optimised tests are created, rapidly generating a rigorous test pack.

After evaluating a number of different tool vendors, Volo.ai selected Curiosity software as they provide next generation capabilities that leading vendors (i.e. Magic Quadrant) was unable to provide our landscape is testing next generation A.I platforms (e.g. Neo4J, OpenCV, Kafka / Zookeeper, MongoDB, VectorFlow) which other vendors had limited native support for any of these technologies. The ability to generate A.I. ready test data lakes to help train and prove our algorithms and the ability to provide test data coverage and built in code dependency analysis was a game changer.

Pros
Ease of use, SaaS based modelling (MBT) capabilities, powerful robotic process automation (RPA), synthetic data generation across the platform, automatic generation of functional / non-functional artefacts (e.g. selenium, restassured, taurus, wiremock), extensive support for continuous delivery & deployment (i.e. Jenkins CI/CD) and ChatOps toolchains (i.e. Slack).

Cons
Lack of current support for container technologies (i.e. docker)

The maintenance and visibility of testing effort for automation purposes quickly tapers off. With VIP it's much easier to maintain larger sets of scripts and just regenerate the tests. That saves a large amount of time when tests have to change. This quickly amounts of 20-40% of the time spent on existing tests that are reduced. This allows the teams to focus on what matters, as opposed to the earlier tested risks.

Pros
The ability to generate optimized test scenario's with a visual interface. This allows a very direct conversation with stakeholders to see what tests cover what part of the software and more importantly why. Then overlaying Automation and Data elements allows for a much more sophisticated way of handling the maintenance within test automation and the regeneration of tests. The integration aspect of handling everything and the ability to interface with Excel in the background to manage data aspects makes this very easy to interlock with existing tests and various other solutions

Cons
Initial easy to learn, hard to master. Modeling software is deceptively simple and can quickly add value but it's a bit more difficult to maintain models since any model is a reduction of the reality. It's very easy to tell somebody to use this but requires a little maturity to really drive home the value.

fine

Pros
It seems good to watch this video tutorial. Its easy way to under stand the flow like how to create and how to map the values etc.. Total I would rate this VIP to 3/5

Cons
Must have all videos with full set like how to add test data. for instance: I have tried to create an automates script with this modular with the help of the video and one point I have created and mapped the variable and generated the script. but we don't know how to run. late we became to know to use the server but we didn't see the such a explanation from the videos. we would suggest to explain with set of video.

Response from Curiosity Software Ireland


Hi Jerome, thank you for taking the time to review The VIP Test Modeller, and for suggesting new tutorial videos.

We are constantly adding to our online library of on demand resources, and will continue to do so. In the meantime, I think that we have some videos that should be useful to you.

Video instructions on adding test data can be found as part of the following training course: https://curiositysoftware.ie/vip-knowledge-base/vip-test-modeller-101-videos/

Instructional videos for running test scripts and setting up the automation server can also be found in this knowledge base article: https://curiositysoftware.ie/vip-knowledge-base/vip-test-modeller-102/

Thanks again for taking the time to review The VIP Test Modeller!

My experience with the VIP Test Moddeller tool is very positve. Its easy to learn, easy to implement and integrate and of huge value in the communiation with your stakeholder.

Pros
- the model based approach! Visualizing your test and business flows! - the many ways this tool can be integrated in other tools - the many develop languages its support to do automated testing - The great great great support behind this tool!

Cons
The look and feel can be improved on some areas. But keep in mind, the tool has been developed in less than a year!

TestModeller, with its model-based approach, focus on the models, test design and test creation. At the moment I’m using it for testing websites but you can use it for api, performance and more. Even without knowledge of program languages you can automate your tests. Also, it is possible to convert the created test cases to different automation frameworks. With this product you also realize the importance of test data even more. With each run of tests, it is possible to start with a new set of data. Rich and production like data. It really helps you identifying the unhappy paths and lets you think what the system under test should behave.

Pros
You can combine different models. So, less testing but more coverage. Even without knowledge of program languages you can automate your tests Rich and production like test data generation Rapid test scenario creation You know the test coverage and can choose different levels of it. It can be integrated with all kinds of frameworks, software and more. Really dedicated and enthusiastic team to work with

Cons
The product is relatively unknown at the moment. It shouldn’t.
