Testing Above and Below the Application Surface

White Papers

If you could only run one more test, what would it be?

In the previous chapters, we’ve learned about the emergence of UI automation and some of the technologies that have made it possible. Much of the work done to date on UI automation has been an attempt to elevate automation to the level of a skilled human tester. However, to truly bring UI automation beyond mere parity, we must take full advantage of the things that computers are good at.

The case for UI automation is clear. Given the growing complexity of applications and the myriad technologies they utilize and interface with, it’s clear that we can no longer rely solely on traditional code-based test automation.

Instead, we should take a hybrid approach that combines the advances in computer vision with more traditional means, such as looking at APIs and object properties. This approach means getting the best of both worlds: the capacity to ‘see’ and interact with complex interfaces combined with an ability to look beneath the surface.
