Have you tried using an "automated" GUI testing tool, only to findthat you spent most of your time configuring, adjusting, and directingit?
This book presents a sensible and highly effective alternative: itteaches you to build and use your own truly automated tool. The procedureyou'll learn is suitable for virtually any development environment, and the toolallows you to store your test data and verification standard separately, so youcan build it once and use it for other GUIs. Most, if not all, of your work canbe done without test scripts, because the tool itself can easily be made toconduct an automatic GUI survey, collect test data, and generate test cases.You’ll spend virtually none of your time playing with the tool orapplication under test.
Code-intensive examples support all of thebook's instruction, which includes these key topics:
Building a C# API text viewer
Building a testmonkey
Developing an XML viewer using xPath and other XML-relatedclasses
Building complex, serializable classes for GUI testverification
Automatically testing executable GUI applications anduser-defined GUI controls
Testing managed (.NET) and unmanaged GUIapplications
Automatically testing different GUI controls, including Label,TextBox, Button, CheckBox, RadioButton, Menu
Effective GUI Test Automation is the perfect complementto Li and Wu's previous book, Effective Software TestAutomation
Developing an Automated Software Testing Tool
.Together, they provide programmers, testers, designers, and managers with acomplete and cohesive way to create a smoother, swifter development process—and, as a result, software that is as bug-free as possible.
