—Day by day, software testing becomes very crucial,
since the applications are developed in different languages on
different OS and environments. Also, the complexity of the
software is getting increased. Organizations are adapting agile
development to deliver the functionality as quickly as possible.
The difficulty in software testing stems from the complexity of
software. Regardless of complexity, we need to deliver a high
quality on time. Test automation is one of the robust and fastest
solutions for achieving quality in complex environment. This
paper analyzes the various methods of identifying /recognizing
UI controls in GUI Test Automation. It also describes the
advantages and disadvantages over Traditional solutions and
the solutions implemented on GUIRobo. This paper is a follow
up to the “Software Test Automation Using GUIROBO”
published on ICCTD 2011 conference.
—Test automation, challenges, GUIRobo.
