Two of the most important characteristics, traffic and processing capabilities of different units of SAK, are also specified in this section.
The second section describes testing process in software development, with Automated Testing Life-cycle Methodology (ATLM), as a guideline for automated software testing.
The last section of the Master´s thesis describes implementation of automated testing, of SAK basic features. Entire process of automated testing in described with test plan, test procedures, used tools and equipment.
Evaluation of automated testing process is given as a comparison between automated and previously done manual testing. Improvements and usage of automated tests for other, SAK related products, are given in the conclusion.
