Discuss techniques and tools for mainframe testing used historically and even today. Discuss reasons why manual testing is prevalent on the mainframe.
- Processes and tasks maintained by existing workforce since ''waterfall age'' ... [resistance to change]
- Automation ROI seems negligible: ''Manual test case executed in minutes'' ... [misleading assessment]
- New joiners faced with paradigm: ''Don't touch it, it has always been this way'' ... [heritage barrier]
Open suggestions to overcome the generic challenges towards test automation. Bottom line should be ''learn from what works'' and how test automation works in distributed and cloud environments.
