Last year we launched a series of eggPlant Functional training videos, which were a huge success. So, while you might be slowing down over the festive season, why not spend some time learning how to use eggPlant Functional?

The training series covers all aspects of test automation from script creation to debugging, best practises, reporting results, and even tips and tricks from the team at TestPlant.

This blog re-introduces the first three videos! The full training video series can be found on our website here.

Introduction: What is eggPlant Functional?

The first video in this series introduces eggPlant Functional and explains how it works. Watch this before you start using eggPlant Functional. Then download a free trial to get started.

Preparing to set up your test environment

The next video discusses preparation, planning and test environment setup, including:

  • Create a deployment plan
  • Define goals considering business and technical requirements
  • Strategy and approach design
  • Progress and goal review
  • Account for test resources
  • Test architecture planning

How to script

Then we look at at 'how to script', which is divided into two videos. Part 1 covers basic script creation using one of eggPlant’s test creation methods called turbo capture. Part 2 then delves deeper into the manual script creation process.

Part 1

This video includes:

  • Record a script using turbo capture
  • Image capture best practices
  • Adjusting timing in your scripts
  • Conditional statements

Part 2

This video includes:

  • Manual script creation
  • Assisted scripting
  • Image collections
  • Scripting against mobile devices
  • Autocomplete
  • Determining reusability of images using image doctor
  • Using OCR for cross-device scripts
  • SenseTalk language browser
  • Setting search rectangles using images


You should now be all set up and starting to script! More videos in this series will follow next week. 

Happy scripting!
