Functional Testing Approach

UpstreamGS Functional Software Testing approach is designed and implemented for each project, based on the domain and technical requirements, to ensure that each project requirement is addressed in a specific manner. This framework adopts requirement specifications, business logic flow and risk-based approaches, to ensure test coverage and quality.

  • Test Initiation
  • Test Planning
  • Test Design
  • Test Execution
  • Analysis & Reporting
  • Test Completion

Test Automation

Test automation helps in conducting tests in shorter period when compared to manual testing and achieves quick time-to-market. Our functional automation testing strategies are designed to cover high volume of business scenarios or functionalities. Our framework helps achieve detailed product testing with significant reduction in test cycle time.

Salient Features of our Test Automation Framework


  • Flexible framework facilitates scalability, like adding new test scripts easily
  • Easy and less maintenance of scripts
  • Fine-grained test execution control
  • Highly modularized libraries that reduce redundancy and saves time

Testing Tools

TestComplete, Selenium WebDriver, Perfecto Mobile, Sahi, Unified Functional Test (QTP) (HP), WinRunner (HP), Ranorex, Rational Functional Test (IBM), Rational TeamTest (IBM), SilkTest (Borland), Ruby on Rails, Rspec, CapyBara.

Test Automation Development


Our test automation development services combine several approaches in testing while incorporating manual testing in a few areas to detect subtle bugs. Our test automation development process is varied in its approach – word driven, data driven approach, hybrid between these two approaches and lastly the custom framework. Our test automation efforts progress smoothly by:

  • utilizing efficient automated testing frameworks,
  • structuring automation in such a way that it is scalable and maintainable,
  • managing test scripts and test results,
  • reusing functions, separating data from tests

Our Matured Automation Test Framework

We have been one of the early adopters of Data-driven testing. This approach splits automation scripts from the data for input and gets returned from the software being tested. This aids the testers in preparing data without relying on automaton engineers and increases the possibility of variations and amount of data that can be used in software testing.

Keyword driven data automation further facilitates compartmentalization of work in an advanced and structured manner. This aspect of automated testing allows testers to concentrate on what they do best while reducing cost and time taken for test design, automation, and execution.

Use of automated testing frameworks enable non-technical testers and business analysts to use executable test automation using “keywords” that represent actions recognizable by end users. As test automation proceeds, this method helps remove bottlenecks in testing while making better use of highly trained professionals.

Hybrid Automated Testing Frameworks

Hybrid Automated Testing frameworks are a combination of “Keyword”, “Data Driven” and other aspects composed of reusable modules or function libraries that are created bearing in mind the following characteristics:

  • Maintainable – this leads to significant reduction in cost for the client
  • Tool Agnostic – readily integrates with any market standard automation tool
  • Reusable – due to the library functions and modularity of test cases it has a highly reusable architecture and is designed for extensibility.
  • Accelerated regression testing
  • Extensive and seamless integration with other collaboration tools
  • Agile test automation complementing SCRUM methodology
  • Higher ROI and lower TCO – minimal time to market through layered approach
