Automation Testing Solution from ZenTao team

February 23, 2021

ZenTao team has developed its own open source automation testing framework ZTF and universal data generator ZenData, which together with ZenTao project management software constitute a professional automation testing solution that can help users realize large-scale automation testing and improve testing efficiency.

ZenTao, ZTF and ZenData are independent and complementary to each other. Together with the Jenkins continuous integration platform, as well as JUnit, Selenium and other unit and automation testing frameworks and tools, they form a complete automation testing solution. Users can use Jenkins to drive ZTF to execute certain types of automated tests, and scripts get structured test data by accessing data files or API interfaces generated by ZenData during the testing process, thus realizing the purpose of separating data and scripts.
