An upcoming major release by the Workload Automation team brought about a complete redesign of the primary user interfaces. Such radical change meant that none of the existing test automation assets were usable, and that the effort to re-engineer them was significant.
HCL OneTest was selected for a pilot program due to its offering of a codeless solution with the added benefits of simple script maintenance and the ability to leverage API and database actions in test scripts.
- Natural language scripts are auto-generated from recording sessions, and can be augmented with additional steps in the IDE while the application is offline
- Recording interactions with the web page under test and associating each action with a navigable screenshot of the page and DOM became a natural and intuitive way of working code-free
- Intelligent object recognition during playback made scripts resilient to changes and easy to maintain
- The ability to re-use UI tests during performance testing leads to efficiencies in script creation and earlier results
- Tests can be built that combine the browser interactions with steps to cleanup data and validate data on the back-end systems providing richer and more robust workflows
