Software Testing Survey of Various Tools for Software Testing
Abbot Java GUI Test Framework The Abbot framework provides automated event generation and validation of Java GUI components, improving upon the very rudimentary functions provided by the java.awt.Robot class (A Better 'Bot). The framework may be invoked directly from Java code or accessed without programming through the use of scripts. It is suitable for use both by developers for unit tests and QA for functional testing.
Anteater Anteater is a testing framework designed around Ant, from the Apache Jakarta Project. It provides an easy way to write tests for checking the functionality of a Web application or of an XML Web service.
Apodora Apodora is a framework/tool for automating functional testing of web applications. It provides the user with programmatic control of the web browser allowing them to interact directly with the browser's user interface. It uses a database backend in order to remember how to find your html elements. This also makes your scripts easier to maintain.
GNU/Linux Desktop Testing Project GNU/Linux Desktop Testing Project (GNU/LDTP) is aimed at producing high quality test automation framework and cutting-edge tools that can be used to test GNU/Linux Desktop and improve it. It uses the "Accessibility" libraries to poke through the application's user interface. The framework has tools to generate "AppMap" by reading through the user interface components of an application. The framework also has tools to record test-cases based on user-selection on the application. GNU/LDTP can test any GNOME application which are accessibility enabled, Mozilla, OpenOffice.org, any Java application (should have a UI based on swing) and KDE 4.0 applications based on QT 4.0 (based on the press releases by KDE).
httest Scriptable HTTP Test Tool for testing and benchmarking webapplication and HTTP server development. Can act as client (requesting) and server (backend for reverse proxys). Pattern matching answers (both server(s)and client(s)) to test validity. Has a very simple but powerfull syntax. Can execute and stream shell commands into the HTTP stream and vis versa.
Toster - The Object-oriented Software Testing Environment Toster is a system for sharing a set of tools that allow you to implement methods for object-oriented testing. Any method based on UML diagrams and on the software source code can easily be implemented as a TOSTER module. The environment itself makes a number of mechanisms available, such as information transfer from UML diagrams, mapping this information to source code, introducing modifications to the source code, launching the tested application, or presenting the results.
Tomato Tomato - the Automation Tool Abstraction Project - is an abstraction layer for automation engines. Its design allows automation scripts or tests to be written in one language, against one library, and remain portable across different architectures, OS platforms, and even widely different automation engines (e.g. Mercury Interactive WinRunner or the Linux Desktop Test Project).
miTester for SIP miTester for SIP is an automated SIP testing tool designed and developed to take care of the complex pre-deployment testing of SIP applications effectively. This SIP testing tool can be used to simulate SIP call-flows & automate functional, regression and fault injection tests. It increases the flexibility of time and resources, avoids redundancy on test execution, increase test coverage, thus increasing the quality and reliability of the system under test. miTester for SIP supports RFC standards - RFC 3261, RFC 2976, RFC 3428, RFC 3265, RFC 3262, RFC 3311, RFC 3903, RFC 3455.
