The Gazelle Test Tools cover a number of different areas. The Kereval team describes the tools and uses on this page.

This page lists many of the tools one would actually use during a Connectathon.

  • The page referenced above describes the full suite of tools, and some of those tools are not used directly at a testing event.
  • The page above also describes tools that are appropriate for a Connectathon but are rarely used due to participant registration or changes in the test descriptions. If you find a tool on the page above that is not listed below, you will first want to check of the test cases in Gazelle Test Management reference that tool. If not, the tool might be obsolete.
