UI test automation: from installation to continuous integration in 20 mins
UI tests are often considered as a serious commitment which requires weeks of effort of highly qualified professionals (the most valuable resource) for learning tools, creating initial test suite and integrating into existing build process. And the outcome is very doubtful – few UI tests which do not cover sufficient amount of functionality with a lot of false negatives. As a result, it is no wonder that most development teams, especially small ones, do not even consider UI testing as part of their quality assurance process.
Using the right tool can change things drastically. What if you have a tool which allows anyone from a team to create robust and stable UI tests just in minutes? What if UI test automation effort is in the same order of magnitude as manual testing effort?
Just in 20 minutes I am going to show how to create several UI tests from scratch and execute them in continuous integration environment.
