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 the least.

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).

This example shows a common usage of the RadWindow - as an information bubble that gives more information about any word when double-clicked. This allows you to provide richer experience for your customers which don't have to browse additional pages to get the needed additional information. Just double-click on a word from the news above to open a window with its dictionary definiton.

The example uses as an online search engine, but it can easily be extended to work with any service that provides a search via query string.
