The Top Five Non-Selenium Test Tools You Need to Know About

Believe it or not, there are test automation tools other then Selenium. If you need to automate something that’s not a browser application, these tools can help.

The top five tools (in no particular order) are:

  1. Python
  2. White Framework
  3. Rest-Assured
  4. Sikuli
  5. Thucydides

Quotes & Insights from this Test Talk

  • Sikuli is an open-source, image-based comparison tool like Eggplant or UFT's 11.50 new insight technology.
  • Selenium locates objects by referring to actual attributes, like the id or name of an element in the DOM. Sikuli, on the other hand, locates an object by comparing a reference image to objects on a specified region of your screen.
  • Thucydides is a tool deigned to make writing automated acceptance and regression tests easier.
  • Thucydides saves you time by providing functionality you would otherwise need to create from scratch, like driver and snapshot management.
  • Rest-Assured syntax uses a  given/when/then type of syntax that will be familiar to anyone doing behavior-driven development
  • Rest assured is an open-source, java domain-specific language that allows you to avoid boiler-plate code to make requests and validation (even complex responses) in a simple manner.
  • White runs on top of the .NET UI automation framework.
  • White is an open-source test framework for WPF, Silverlight, Win32 and WinForms.

Join me on Sep 16th to learn the basics of API testing using UFT API.

Test automation engineers are currently living in a time of great change. Agile has disrupted standard test automation practices, causing test engineers to re-think how automation is done. No longer is the GUI king. Today’s automation engineer needs to burrow deeper underneath the GUI to the API level. HP Unified Functional Testing addresses today’s testing needs for the GUI and API level.
