GUI testing tools

GUI (Graphical User Interface) testing tool is used to find the defects that happened in the design phase, which enhance the quality of the software. With the help of these tools, we can identify the loopholes quickly rather than performing GUI testing manually. We will test the application based on application performance, which is related to mouse and keyboard actions, and some of the GUI items like buttons, toolbars, Dialog boxes, Menu bars, and the edit fields.

Following are some essential strategies that we can perform under GUI testing:

Navigation validation, verify the check screens, data integrity validation, verification of usability situations, and also check the numeric, date field formats.

Some of the following GUI testing tools are as follows:

  • Eggplant
  • AutoIT
  • Ranorex Studio
  • Squish
  • RIATest

Eggplant is a GUI test automation tool, which is developed by Test Plant. It is a licensed tool. To execute the end-to-end testing process, eggplant can be integrated into the micro focus quality center, Jenkins, and IBM rotational quality manager. It will use the two-system model, where the first one contains the controller machine where scripts are written and executed, and another one is SUT (system under test) that runs on the VNC server.
