Best Automation Testing Tools for 2017

Automatic Testing is a method to test the system-under-test (SUT) and to verify its features, by software capabilities. it is a programmable software system or platform which we use it to test other software products.

One of the most known feature of the automatic testing tool is Record & Play, which gives you the ability to record events and actions on your desktop and convert them into a script which you can 'play' later on.

In an industry which we must test our product over and over, automatic testing tools help us to reduce the number of tests to run manually, given our testers the time to define and design more test and better verify the quality of the product before it released.

Here are some of the benefits using Automatic testing systems:

  1. it is Faster than the manual testing
  2. Wider test coverage of application features
  3. Reliable in results
  4. Ensure Consistency
  5. Saves Time and Resources
  6. Improves accuracy
  7. Human Intervention is not required while execution
  8. Increases effectiveness
  9. Reusable test scripts
  10. Test thoroughly and Frequently
  11. Can do long execution period
  12. Can do better parallel testing, and activate synchronize testing scenarios
  13. Fast reporting abilities
  14. and much more...

 

Here are some of the Most known Automatic Testing Frameworks:

  • SELENIUM
    • Focus on Web testing, and cross-browsing testing, Selenium started as a Java application, but today there is API in many other programming languages. It can analyze files of a specific structure in order to find commands for manipulating the browser and commands for performing certain actions and checks.
      Being one of the most popular automated testing tools for WEB on different platforms, Selenium has support from some browsers that make Selenium a native part of their browser.
      Selenium was originally developed by Jason Huggins in 2004 as an internal tool at ThoughtWorks.
    • Top Features:
      • Selenium is pure open source, freeware and portable tool. 
      • Selenium supports a variety of languages that include Java, Perl, Python, C#, Ruby, Groovy, JavaScript, and VB Script. etc. 
      • Selenium supports many operating systems like Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Unix etc. 
      • Selenium supports many browsers like Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc. 
      • Selenium can be integrated with ANT or Maven kind of framework for source code compilation.

  • WATIR

    • Watir is an automation testing tool that using to testing of web apps. It is an open source library of Ruby and anyone can get it on GitHub. It’s very helpful for automating web browsers and allows you to create simple tests
      that easy maintain.
      Unlike testing tools based on the HTTP protocol that simulates browser requests, Watir simulates user interaction with the browser using the OLE protocol, which is based on the COM architecture.
      Ruby supports OLE, which allows the automation of Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    • Top Features:
      • Tests any language-based web application 
      • Cross-browser testing 
      • Compatible with business-driven development tools like RSpec, Cucumber, and Test/Unit 
      • Tests web page’s buttons, forms, links, and their responses

  • SOAPUI

    • SoapUI is a cross–platform engineering tool for functional testing, which was created for automatically beused to test the interface, so SOAP and REST for secure access to the oldest add–ons.It is built entirely on theJava platform and uses Swing for the user interface. This means that SoapUI is cross–platform.

      Today, SoapUI also supports IDEA, Eclipse, and NetBeans. SoapUI can test SOAP and REST web services, JMS, AMF, as well as make any HTTP(S) and JDBC calls.

    • Top Features:
      • User-Friendly GUI 
      • Easy for Functional Testing  
      • Vulnerability Testing 
      • Load Testing using LoadUI 
      • Automation with Groovy

  • JUNIT

    • JUnit has been very important in test-driven development and testing framework at all. This testing framework using for testing applications written in Java and help to easy design repeatable tests. A research survey performed in 2013 across 10,000 Java projects hosted on

      A research survey performed in 2013 across 10,000 Java projects hosted on GitHub found that JUnit was the most commonly included external library. Each library was used by 30.7% of projects.

    • Top Features:
      • Simple framework for writing automated, self-verifying tests in Java 
      • Support for test assertions  
      • Test suite development 
      • Immediate test reporting

  • TESTNG

    • TestNG is also for the Java programming language application. This testing framework was inspired by JUnit and NUnit. It provides few new features for writing tests that make it more powerful convenient and easy to use.
      TestNG was created to cover multiple types of tests, such as unit, functional, end-to-end and integration tests.

    • Top Features:
      • Annotation support. 
      • Support for parameterizing and data-driven testing 
      • Support for multiple instances of the same test class 
      • Flexible execution model. TestNG can be run either by Ant via build.XML, or by an IDE plugin with visual results. There isn’t a TestSuite class, while test suites, groups, and tests selected to run are defined and configured by XML files. 
      • Concurrent testing: run tests in arbitrarily big thread pools with various policies available, and test whether the code is multithread safe. 
      • Embeds BeanShell for further flexibility. 
      • Default JDK functions for runtime and logging. 
      • Dependent methods for application server testing. 
      • Distributed testing: allows distribution of tests on slave machines.

  • NUNIT

    • NUnit is an open environment for a unit-testing framework for. NET. It was ported from the Java language (the JUnit library). The first versions of NUnit were written in J #, but then all the code was rewritten in C # using such .NET innovations as attributes.
      There are also known extensions of the original NUnit package, most of them also with open source. NUnit.Forms complement NUnit by testing the Windows Forms user interface elements. NUnit.ASP performs the same task for interface elements in ASP.NET.

    • Top Features:
      • Tests can be run from a console runner, within Visual Studio through a Test Adapter, or through 3rd party runners. 
      • Tests can be run in parallel. 
      • Strong support for data-driven tests. 
      • Supports multiple platforms including.NET Core, Xamarin Mobile, Compact Framework, and Silverlight.

  • GOOGLE TEST

    • Google Test is a library for the C++ programming language apps that based on the xUnit architecture. It’sexecuting testing individual parts of the program such as classes, functions, modules. They are checked separately from each other, in isolation and it called unit testing.

      It can be compiled for a variety of POSIX and Windows platforms, allowing unit–testing of C sources as well asC++ with minimal source modification. One of the biggest advantages of this tool is a possibility to run testsas one and all at once at the same time, which makes testing more convenient and versatile for testers and coders.
