Adaptive Automation: Tests that Recover Instead of Failing

Scott Miles

Are you tired of flaky automation scripts that fail without apparent cause? Are most script failures due to bugs in the test script rather than bugs in the product? Do you simply want to get more out of your automation framework? Many testers and organizations are frustrated with the high cost and low return of their automation frameworks. Scott Miles shares a range of techniques to convert your existing framework from brittle to adaptive. Learn how to improve the quality of your automation framework while reducing the required maintenance. Adaptive automation frameworks can locate modified UI elements that no longer match the previous selector, recover from unexpected interruptions in the test, and automatically update a test script when a change is detected. Scott says that the best part of adaptive automation techniques is that they can be applied to most existing frameworks without purchasing new tools or needing to re-write existing tests.
