- Keyword-Driven Testing (KDT) is a battle-tested method to speed up test automation development and cut down scaling costs in the long run.
- This article gives you the best practices that we’ve crystallized from our 20+ years of helping clients successfully build and maintain their KDT frameworks.
- To reap the full reward of KDT, you should 1) organize tests into self-contained test modules with clear test objectives, 2) separate Business-Level from Interaction-Level tests, and 3) architect a robust keyword library.
- As KDT is a widely adopted method, you can apply these best practices to many test automation tools including Robot Framework, Unified Functional Test, TestArchitect, TestComplete, Ranorex, etc.
