There are many benefits of having an automation solution that can be achieved – by expanding test coverage, increasing the frequency of execution, reducing manual testing resources, and more. In our experience, 100% of Guidewire customers want to implement automation in their test practice and 90%. One of them has attempted to incorporate automation into projects by purchasing a licensed tool or acquiring a team to work with open source tools.
Still, surprisingly, less than 10% of customers have actually been successful in building a robust automation solution over time. And even in these cases, it has taken years of investment to reach a point where automation has become valuable.
However, the root cause of most of the issues,
is the approach taken for testing automation and lack of proper tooling to implement automation solutions. One of the most common and widely made mistakes is determining the automation scope as a percentage of manual testing effort. This is in direct conflict with the purpose of automation, which is to supplement manual testing rather than duplicates. Another common mistake is the belief that a single device (license or otherwise) will suffice to accommodate all automation requirements. Developing high-yield automation coverage requires a significant amount of equipment-evaluation to detect the right mix of devices.
Not having a clear focus or limitation for automation and manual testing leads to a huge amount of redundancy and dependency, which then directly affects ROI. This is why automation teams always end up playing catches and are never able to do so on fast-moving guideline implementation efforts. In addition, an incorrect set of devices leads to wastage attempts and the creation of an automation test bed with very little value. The Cynosing Testing Practice has developed the Cynosure Automation Testing Framework (CTAF) for Guidewire InsuranceSuite with the aim of jump-starting automation efforts of any scale and skill to our customers.
Jump-Start Guidewire Automation Testing with CTAF
The Synogen Test Automation Framework (CTAF) is a customizable data-driven framework, developed in conjunction with open source tools such as Selenium Web Driver, Maven, Apache POI, TestNG, Log4J, Java and Jenkins.
lists and input fields do not work with core Selenium web driver methods. The project long ago includes key product functionalities such as presenting quotes, issuing policy and invoicing to help implement these transactions.
In this series, the intention is to deal with various integration mechanisms since the Insider Insurance Suite (primarily SOA based web services,
as GuideView naturally built for SOAP (vs REST) to focus on SOAP. Gaya support) and use SOAP and web services interactively), Message Destinations (synchronous / asynchronous) and Batch.- although ETL is another mechanism we can use Will leave for another discussion in efficiency) and provide mechanisms that promote achieving stability during project implementation.
This in turn is being given to the business and support / maintenance team for better product quality. This set of simple designs / mechanisms / pre-built tools / components / documentation will additionally provide the necessary start to provide stability to every project and most importantly allow the project to be delivered on time and within budget.

there is an assumption that you understand the basic guidelines insurance suite architecture, its development tools and the GOSU language. To make this exercise useful you will find the complete source code of the designs discussed in each attached. Installment
The first installment of the series takes a look at web services hosted on the Guideware platform (service provider) that are consumed by customers (typically an enterprise service bus or a point-in-service scenario such as client systems, enterprise scheduler software, and Other Third Party Systems) – These are the web services (or a guideline product) consumed by external service consumers.
