Test Automation, GUI Testing, Test Case Generation.


Testing software manually is a labor intensive process. Efficient automated testing can significantly reduce the overall cost of software development and maintenance. Graphical User Interfaces (GUI’s) code has some characteristics that distinguish it from the rest of the project code. Generating test cases from the GUI code requires different algorithms from those usually applied in test case generation. We developed several GUI test generation automated algorithms that do not need any user involvement, except in defining the test inputs and pre conditions, and that ensure test adequacy in the generated test cases. The test cases are generated from an XML GUI model or tree that represents the GUI structure. This work contributed to the goal of developing fully GUI test automated framework.
