What is Data Driven Testing?

Data-driven testing is creation of test scripts where test data and/or output values are read from data files instead of using the same hard-coded values each time the test runs. This way, testers can test how the application handles various inputs effectively. It can be any of the below data files.
  • Datapools
    Excel files
  • ADO objects
  • CSV files
  • ODBC sources
