Course Content

The CA Application Test 8: Foundations 200 course teaches students the foundational concepts and processes needed to begin using CA Application Test. Instruction uses test cases designed to use properties, filters, assertions, data sets, and subprocesses to invoke and verify results from a system under test.

Module 1 – Create a Test Case
  • Create a basic webservices test case in DevTest Workstation
  • Add a step
  • Execute a step in the step type editor
  • Create an API test case in DevTest Portal
Module 2 – Configure Properties
  • Describe in detail where properties are set and in what order
  • Describe where to find property values during test case design and execution
  • Describe common properties used in test case models
  • Describe test steps specific to properties
Module 3 – Design Workflows with Filters, Assertions, and Different Step Types
  • Create filters and assertions from a step response
  • Use different step types to invoke different layers within a system under test
  • Execute steps and elements properly at design time
  • Create looping and branching using step and assertion configurations
  • Compare XML or text values using the Graphical Text Diff tool
Module 4 – Create and Invoke a Subprocess
  • Describe the role of a subprocess
  • Create a subprocess from scratch or from an existing test case
  • Configure subprocess input and output parameters
  • Invoke a subprocess within a test case
Module 5 – Stage and Execute a Test Case
  • Describe how CA Application Test uses multiple instances of Coordinator and Simulator severs to execute test cases
  • Create and configure a staging document
  • Stage and execute a test case with DevTest Workstation
Module 6 – Stage and Execute a Test Suite
  • Create and configure a suite document
  • Execute a suite of tests with DevTest Workstation
Module 7 – Configure Data Sets
  • Configure common data sets
  • Create global, local, and random data sets and describe how they distribute data
  • Create a looping test case using data sets
Module 8 – View and Export Reports
  • Access and navigate the Reporting Dashboard and the Monitor Tests in the DevTest Portal
  • Describe the difference between standard reporting and load and performance reporting
  • Export reports to a PDF file or Excel spreadsheet
Module 9 – Troubleshoot Test Cases
  • Describe common test case errors and potential causes
  • Locate tools used to troubleshoot test case errors
