World is moving towards Open Source adoption. Currently 1.5 million Users are registered on www.opensourcetesting.org .There are multiple tools available in open source world to automate application available on different platforms.
As of now, there exists no tool, open source or otherwise, to facilitate automation of test cases which run across platforms. For e.g. selenium is great to handle across browser testing; but has no support when a need to do image based testing; web service testing or mobile application testing, arises. Currently there is no framework available where one can make use of more than one automation tool in the same test case.

    • Multi-Tool Test Automation Platform World is moving towards Open Source adoption. Currently 1.5 million Users are registered on www.opensourcetesting.org .There are multiple tools available in open source world to automate application available on different platforms. As of now, there exists no tool, open source or otherwise, to facilitate automation of test cases which run across platforms. For e.g. selenium is great to handle across browser testing; but has no support when a need to do image based testing; web service testing or mobile application testing, arises. Currently there is no framework available where one can make use of more than one automation tool in the same test case. While Automating applications for different clients we feel some challenges that are mentioned below:- What are the challenges? One Automation tool often doesn’t support all Platforms SeleniumSahi is great for web, but how about mobile, flash, flex or web service. No Single Solution available in market People need one stop solution for their application that is available on multiple platforms. People cannot migrate their Script from one tool to other one World is moving toward open source so people want to migrate their Scrip from a paid Automation toll to open source tool. But they are unable to do so. High Skilled professional are required Organizations have to hire automation experts who have extensive knowledge of Scripting languages and for different tool they have to learn different languages.
    • Let’s talk about some typical Business Scenarios Business Case 1: A mid-sized product development company is developing a rich media app, which includes online videos and rich media advertising and marketing. The application is required to have a great user/UI experience. Thus it was no surprise that Flex was dominant here. The Challenge: To test the application frequently in an agile development environment, the QA team decided to go for test automation using an open source test automation tool called Selenium. Since Flex was dominant, the QA team to it surprise found out that selenium had problem recognizing components developed using Flex, thus leading to incomplete or unsuccessful test automation. The Analysis: A thorough analysis of the situation demanded using a set of tools that can be used to automate application components developed in Flex. After a detailed study the QA team narrowed down on Selenium, Sikuli and FlexMonkey. This required a platform which could support multiple tools.
    • Business Case 2: An US base media company has decided to develop an application that is available on multiple platforms-Mobile, Desktop, Web and Cloud for transfer of real time information from users and broadcasting centers across the world. The Challenge: The prevailing business environment in the social media space required the client (US based startup) to have the solution implemented as soon as possible, putting extensive pressure on the project timelines. This and given the budget constraints, the vendor had to opt for a test automation strategy that had to utilize open source test automation tool. The Analysis: The QA team based on their analysis of the situation at hand and the open source tools available came to the conclusion which had serious implication for their over ambitious QA goals. The solution demanded extensive interface testing which required the test to be run on different platforms (Web, Desktop, Mobile and Cloud). A typical Business process Test/Integration test is depicted in the figure below:
    • For this the QA team had to use combination of automation tools (Robotium, Selenium, AutoIT and SOAP-UI) to automate the end to end business processes, as no one tool had the capability to run test across all the available platforms i.e. Web, Desktop, Mobile and Cloud. This required a platform which could support multiple tools. What should be the Solution? Technology independent Platform The Solution provided should be independent of technology used in developing and testing Applications. End User Abstraction The Solution provided should be intended to target large segment of Audience. The largest segment in an application test life cycle is owned by Manual Testers. The solution provided had to have such an ease of usage that any tester; who is not aware of automation; or any script or any language should be able to get started with it Seamless integration with Automation tools The solution provided should be the solution designed has to allow easy integration with any tool whether commercial; open or home made. How OpKey tackle this challenge? Seamless integration with Multiple Automation Tools OpKey works as a one stop portal for multiple Automation tools like Selenium, QTP, RFT, Robotium, Sikuli, SOAPUI, and AUTOIT.
    • One Stop Authoring Platform- Common Object Repository- OpKey facilitates user a single Object repository that can be used by any of above mentioned tools to create test case. Common Keyword Repository- OpKey provides single set of prebuilt keywords that are tool independent and user can execute same test case by using separate tools to multiple tools in single Go.
    • A Single test case can contain keywords from different tools. Let’s take an Example. Common Data Repository – OpKey provides common data repository that can be used throughout application and on all available tools.A single data repository that helps business users to manage data effortlessly.
    • One Stop Execution Platform- OpKey facilitates user to choose his/her flow with any of the Automation tool. It means a Test case that is created during Authoring can be executed with multiple Automation tools. If user wants to migrate from a paid tool to Open Source then he does not add any migration cost in his estimation list. IT is basically providing HAPPY MIGRATION!!!!
    • Let’s take Business Case 1:- To Automate the above mentioned Scenario of Media Application we have used three different Plugins Web Components:- Selenium. Image Components- Sikuli. Flash Components- Flex Monkey. So a Single Data repository and test case for all three Plugins has resolve the complexity of above scenario. Let’s take Business Case 2 :-
    • Which All Tools are used to Automate the above give Scenario:- We have used Above mentioned Tools to Automate Business Case 2 and We didn’t need to create separate Object Repository, Test case or data repository to Automate it. OpKey provides a lot of feature that makes testers life easy and Business As well. Happy OpKeying !!!!!
