    What use Python?

    I noticed mention of Python in this forum and was wondering how useful that script language would be for GUI based testing on our application, which is a data analysis application for a Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer.

    I currently use WinTask and have fairly large collection of test scripts but I am always looking to improve coverage of the tests. We are a small organization and do not have resources for the more expensive testing packages so whenever something is free, Python is free I believe, I can afford to spend some time investigating it. However, if anyone can say it is really good or really bad for GUI based test scripting that will give me some help in deciding how much time I should allocate for evaluating Python.

    Re: What use Python?

    Python on its own can be used for lots.. but you probably want to do a search for test frameworks written in Python, so you don't have to reinvent too many wheels.

    Re: What use Python?

    I have had decent results with the Win32::GUITest module with PERL on those areas of the app my std automation tool doens't interface with well enough.

    It is another option to maybe investiage for you
    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
