    Hi,
    what you meant for "Matrix for the automation"? Is it related with testing tools or anything else?
    Thanks & Regards,

    Re: When to automate?

    My biggest criteria include the following:

    1) Is the test process repeatable.
    Will the UI under test remain the same or chnage under every rev? Changes in the UI typically mean changes in the application under test.

    2) How many times do you expect to run these tests?

    3) How many mistakes would I make if I tried to test this manually?

    Ideally, the automated tests would be used very often for things that don't change a whole lot, and for things I would tend to make mistakes if I tried to do it manually. (or even be impossible without machines!)

    There are other things to consider, but these are first and foremost in my mind.
    It Depends.

    Re: When to automate?

    Is your question about :

    1) Choose an automation tool (like WinRunner, SilkTest,...) to automate a test?

    2) Choose which test to automate ?
    Thanks & Regards
    Arnaud.

    Re: When to automate?

    OK, Here is my philosophy
    "AUTOMATE EVERYTHING"

    Now, can this truly be done? well, no. However, I have found, more times than not, people who approach automation with a boat load of subjective criterias end up automating far less than what could (Or should) be automated.

    These tools continue to improve. Therefore it behooves you to not stay VERY fluid in your yes/No criteria.

    Re: When to automate?

    You can use the Boring Method:

    Automate anything you find really boring to do manually.

    Now, there is a rationale to this apparently unscientific method:
    - If you've done it enough times to be bored, it's probably being done often enough to automate.
    - If it's simple enough to be boring it's probably relatively easy to program.
    - If it's boring it's static, and that's a good qualifier for automation.
