Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If it’s testing you have done you can do a WRKJOB and check your spoolfiles with a 4. Are you looking for other testing like benchmarks for speed an/or performance? That would be based on your processor and storage. We would need a little more information.

    The AS/400 is a general purpose computer .. like a PC.

    It sounds like you want to test some type of software.

    That would be pretty much the same process as on other server based systems.

    Yes, I agree with philipl1jb the AS/400 does not have any automated testing features. At least none I have seen or worked with. Do you have a specific piece of software you are looking to test?

    I have done testing, but whereever I have been we used a seperate set of libraries for testing. A secondary partition could be done for testing. You have to be carefull of hardcoded library refrences. The vendors I have worked with in the past have been helpful in providing documentation regarding configuration of a test envirionment, but your milage may differ. Another thing to be careful of is keeping data in the test environment somewhat current. (Places I have been have been OK with current in test being no more than a couple of months old, but you may need more current for your testing.

    Back when we were prepping for Y2K a number of vendors provided software to aid with that testing. A few were generic enough for other types of testing and have survived, that might be something you want to look for.

    If you are looking for test scripts (instuctions for testers to follow step by step), they typically have to be written. Pros to this approach: you can predict the result   Cons: You don't test for the unexpected.  I like to have testers test the script, then play around with it in a free-for-all.

    I don't have any test scripts from my current employment so I can only tell you generically what they consist of:

    Describe the purpose of test/objectives, Why is it being done (new functionality, procedure change, etc)

    Pre-test preparation (does the tester need to have a part no, what criteria for it, etc.

    Test script for each objective

    • instruction to perform the step (even if it is selection menu option x)
    • Expected results
    • Actual resulsts
    • are the results acceptable yes/no

    identification section for principle parties and areas for signatures. (one place I worked required that certain parties sign that the test script itself was acceptable then sign off that the results were acceptable.

    Comment section (either here or in a seperate section-problems and how they were fixed).

    Dates, in some cases times, are typically included along the way.
