Script Driven Testing

Script-Driven Testing

Moving Beyond Record/Playback

PushToTest TestMaker supports record/playback testing. TestMaker users create test scripts using a test script recorder. The recorder watches Web application use in a browser and creates a test script. Operate the tests in Firefox, Internet Exprlorer, and other browsers. Record/playback works for many tests. There are times when tests need to use conditional execution, looping, branching and complex operational test data sets. These are occassions to move from record/playback to script-driven testing.

Script-driven testing in TestMaker has many advantages. TestMaker data-enables tests to use operational test data from TestMaker Data Production Library (DPL) data sources. Tests operate in the high performance HtmlUnit headless Web browser. Tests include user-defined custom logging down to the step level.
