The project was conducted in a financial organization providing various products of traditional banking and online banking. Being a huge enterprise, a lot of applications and customer records has to be stored and kept safely. Before lunching any new application a thorough testing of its functionality has to be done. Security breaches or vulnerability are unacceptable. Customer’s sensitive data cannot be compromised. A thoroughly tested application is required to do all the transaction for a big organization like this. Every new application and every new updates have to be tested end to end. Many test accounts are created to test different scenarios. Creating a test account and conditioning is a major part of the time consuming process during the software development life cycle. When the code is moved to the integration region where the newly developed code is tested along with the already existing application, second round of testing is required. Again tester in integration testing has to create the test accounts and test the same functionality as of system testing. To remove this redundant task of creating same set of test account to test in both region and make a common reusable framework “Data Refresh” application was introduced.


The success and result of this project would not have been possible without the guidance and support of many people and I am extremely grateful to have got this all along the way of my project.

I would like to offer my thankfulness to my project committee Dr. Hiral Shah who helped me with her guidance to complete the project successfully. I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Department Chair Dr. Ben Baliga for his support and guidance to complete this project. I owe my profound gratitude to Prof. Gary J. Nierengarten, for her advice, guidance and encouragement on my project work without which I don’t think I would have been able to complete the project on time and successfully.

I would also like to thank my advisor Dr. Balasubramanian Kasi for his valuable suggestions and being the member of my project committee and his support.

Finally I would like to thank my friends and family for their support and help during this capstone project.
