Whilst waiting for a fix to safariwatir, I’ve had a quick look around to see what other open-source test automation tools are around. Here’s one that looks promising but has a way to go before it could be seen as a viable alternative to something RFT…
Advantages of Abbot:
- It’s java – don’t need to learn a new language (unlike watir which is a ruby-based tool)
- It’s free (unlike the thousands of dollars needed for the current market leaders)
- Concepts are very similar to RFT – especially the way that GUI objects are handled
Take a look!
