GUI test automation...


...is something I do very rarely these days. 

Browser dependencies, slow test execution and script maintenance are a few things which makes poor ROI over application life cycle.

One advantage though is the top-down/end-to-end execution but I think the perfect compromise for high level test automation is via Web Services. Pretty fast execution, no browser(s) and possible to have robust test scripts...so having application business logic accessible through Web Services is something which increase testability as well as product value for your customers.

My advice is to leave the GUI mainly for exploratory and usability testing...

ps. I am on Twitter nowadays

Most of the customers that I work with and management that I work with are interested to get Automation Testing implemented for their application or product and sometimes a portfolio of applications.

Hi,There are at least four ways to get a website today. You can make a website yourself. You can use a free website builder for Web Design Cochin. You can hire a jack-of-all-trades web developer who dabbles in bits of everything. After all, you can hire a professional web development company.
Thanks.......
