Challenges in GUI Test Automation

G. Mohan Doss Gandhi and Anitha S. Pillai

Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Test automation, challenges, GUIRobo.
