#TechTuesday: Resilient UI Test Automation for Web Applications

Web applications are a perfect example of a rapidly moving target for UI test automation tools. Agile and DevOps drive small changes and frequent releases. This leads to certain challenges in QA field. How to create tests that survive after small UI changes? How to create tests that produce same results if ran 10 times in a row on an unmodified application? How to create tests that check exactly those features they were designed to check?

Answers to these questions are not entirely simple. Test automation is still an art.

In this blog we try to figure out what every test automation engineer can do to find the right answers. First I'll give a few examples that illustrate common challenges in Web UI test automation.

#TechTuesday: Automated Testing of Complex Web UI Components: Behind The Scenes

Take any tool for UI test automation and you will notice that they always lack support for some of the UI controls. And I am not talking about trivial ones like buttons and edit boxes, but the one that are custom controls, which are unique and created for specific needs. It can be some sophisticated grid or menu or a fancy tree. A number of such controls in this rapidly evolving world is growing exponentially. So, every UI test automation engineer is challenged by emerging UI frameworks in every project. This is especially true for Web applications.

As a provider of a UI test automation tool - Rapise - we constantly do our best to arm engineers with the most advanced technologies to help them deal with new UI controls.

This article by Danis Markovtsev will showcase a real-life example of this.

Why and How Should I Use Test Automation?

The average test plan for a commercial grade application will have between 2,000 and 10,000 test cases. Your test team of five must manually execute and document results for between 400 and 2,000 test cases. And the scheduled release date of your product is fast approaching. No worries; clone your team and work around the clock. Or perhaps there’s a better way... (Read More)

Modifying a Previously Recorded Rapise Test

You built your first test. And it works, as planned! Congratulations! Based on that test you submitted a bug and proved your worth and the value of automation! Again congrats. Now development has “fixed” the bug, time to retest. OOPS! The test fails, not due to the bug, but because the flow is wrong. (Read More)

Rapise - Learn through Object Selection

Rapise has several methods for learning the objects within the application under test. While still easy to learn, this method does not automatically develop a runnable test that will deliver any meaningful results. Herein we will discuss the learning methodology and provide a flow to follow, however we will not have a runnable test in the end as no input or click-stream data will be captured.
