Automated Testing Tool Developement
am a student in the final year of BS (computer Science) at Hamdard University Islamabad. These days I am working on my final degree project. The project is to develop an automated Testing Tool like WinRunner. As you are aware that in a time frame of 7 months and with 2 group members the product can not be as generic as WinRunner or Silk Test also there is no intention to copy WinRunner or any other legal breach but I want to go in future for the field of automated testing tool development. Any IT expert/tester/developer could you please help me in this regard by referring some material or website or any other free ware or personalities whom could help me in this regard. I hope that this would be a case of academic cooperation between the industry and the students.
I shall be extremely thankful to you if you take some time for my request.
Re: Automated Testing Tool Developement
Looking over "Visual Basic for Testers" might be a good start. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1893115534/qid%3D1036 690040/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/002-5852787-2240851
Also, take advantage of those test tool vendors that offer downloadable evaluation copies.
And check out general automation tools/macro recorders, too (not just test automation tools). You will find that some are about 80% of the way toward being a test tool.
