As software testing is moving towards automation, most QC and QA teams are switching from Manual testing to Automated testing. Today, automated software testing is considered one of the more favoured practices in the field of software testing, as it is found to be an efficient and effective way of making the overall software development/testing life cycle more reliable.
Based on functional requirements, there are many automation tools available for software testing. It totally depends on the need and requirement of the tester e.g. Web app testing, Database testing, Cross-browser testing, etc
Currently, some of the leading Test Automation Tools most favoured by testers include;
- Web Automation - Selenium, QTP, TestingWhiz
- Desktop - TestComplete
- ETL Testing - Informatica
- Mobile Testing - Appium and Cucumber.
Few tools among these like TestingWhiz and Selenium are multi-functional and hence used by many testers. Further, TestingWhiz is a codeless test automation tool which is easy to learn and implement.
