Most applications have features to enable printing or saving of documents to files. The task of validating that the documents meet layout requirements and contain expected data is a tedious and time consuming manual task that is prone to human error. For these reasons, testing of printed reports and documents is often neglected until customers report issues with them. Automated validation has typically been challenging due to resolution issues and the dynamic nature of reports. A solution has been developed, however, to address these challenges by breaking down the verifications into two parts. First, using bitmap comparisons to validate sections of the printout or document that are not supposed to change against a known baseline and second, using OCR technology to validate sections of the document or printout that change with the data. These components are integrated into an automation framework allowing for a comprehensive process. Join Ivan and bring this helpful solution to your organization.
