Automated Testing Tools

Hopefully this information helps someone. I've been using this blog to keep notes about Web Tests in Visual Studio Team System. In the past I would learn something, then forget important details after moving on to the next project.

Here's the tools I have used to implement automated test scripts: (I'm not an expert in any of these tools)

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers - automated web tests, manual tests in Word or text, unit tests, load tests, and generic tests

Rational Visual Test 4.0 - old test tool for Windows applications

Watir – Web application testing in Ruby – module to automate web applications using Ruby script

Selenium remote control – automated web testing -- Java server with dotNet dll for tests written in C#, Python module, and Ruby module

Selenium Recorder – Firefox extension with record and playback for automating web tests

Selenium IDE – Firefox extension to record, edit, and debug tests

Selenium Core - Selenium uses JavaScript and Iframes to embed a test automation engine in your browser. This technique should work with any JavaScript-enabled browser. Because different browsers handle JavaScript somewhat differently, we usually have to tweak the engine to support a wide range of browsers on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

pyWinAuto – Python module for automating windows applications

PAMIE - Python Automation Module for Internet Explorer
