new comment inside: What is The Best/Most Used Scripting language ?
Code-free testing tools are expanding, growing and have much possibilities each day. Buying such tool will mean budget approval; there is no real cheap tool and every static or floating license need to be acquired. The big advantage is that it gives you the frameworks without the need for resources to develop it. The most common disadvantage is that it takes the flexibility and speed on the features needed.
Tools with Scripting capabilities are no cheap either, and usually mean that Automation developer will be required as well. Then you can fine-tune the tool to operate exactly according to your managers’ desire.
Opensource Tools are Free. May be not…because you must have your automation team ready for any new change and feature. However, because all code is there, changes and add-ons will be fast and easy to install and update.
