The demand for delivering quality software faster or “Quality at Speed” requires organizations to search for various techniques such as Agile, continuous integration (CI), and DevOps methodologies. Test automation is an essential part of these aspects.
Automation testing is one step ahead of manual testing. It saves the human effort and time up to a great extent. Automation testing means running the software programs that execute test cases automatically and produce the test results without any human intervention.
Let’s get to know about some of the famous tools:
- performs snapshot testing
- fast and efficient
- opinionated and provides everything you require without making any choices
Enzyme's API is meant to be intuitive and flexible for DOM manipulation and traversal.
- Mocha Testing Framework
- Appium Testing Tool
Appium is an open-source tool for automating native and hybrid applications on iOS mobile, Android mobile, and Windows desktop platforms.
Appium is "cross-platform" i.e. it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows), using the same API.
- Apache J Meter
J Meter is a pure Java open-source software designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It is originally used for testing Web Application or FTP application. Some advantages of using J Meter:
- Open source license
- Independent platform
- Easy installation
- Multiple testing strategies
- Highly extensible
Software development practices change over time, so do the tools and technologies. Each of the above testing tools has unique features to offer in addressing the growing challenges of software automation in the years ahead. Such changes aim to improve productivity, quality, customer satisfaction, to tackle ever-shorter delivery time, and to deliver successful products and services. Software testing plays an important role in achieving these objectives.
