Telerik is adding a new product to its portfolio! Maybe you are
already aware of that thanks to the numerous blog posts and comments in the press.
What you might be still curious to learn, though, is how Telerik will keep its promise
of opening a new era in automated web testing.
The motivation behind this product is simple - most companies today don't use automated
testing! Why? Well, simply because the current tools are very complex, very expensive
and very generic. If you want to test a slick web 2.0 application with more-than-basic
interactivity you simply can't. And if you are using AJAX or client-side functionality
(which is something standard nowadays, right) - well, forget about it. Learning
today's testing tools takes forever and the price tag is just ... too high to say
These times are over now. Automated web testing is finally made simple, powerful
and accurate. Telerik WebUI Test Studio (powered by ArtOfTest)
is designed specifically for modern web applications, which may use AJAX or even
Silverlight (coming soon). There are plenty of tools and features specifically for
web testing - browser abstraction (yes, indeed), convenient DOM inspector, reuse
of HTML elements, etc. The Test Studio uses a true point-and-click interface so
you will no longer deal with recording script files or consoles. Finally, this elegant
solution is priced very affordably and supports Visual Studio Professional Edition
(not just VSTS).
