Hello fellow testers,
Today I would like to ask on some tips how to handle different time and date formats in the tests. The tests that I have written were all expecting the dates in the European format (dd.MM.yyyy) but now we have also the application with
British locale, so all dates look different, and what worse, there is now difference between the short, medium and long version of the date (16/01/2007, 16-Jan-2007 or 16 January 2007 respectively).
I would like to avoid either copying everything or inserting “ifs” into the test suites. Are there any other options? What would be the best practice here?
Only thing that I came up with is to set a variable before each date instance and convert it by a script to the specific format.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
