    Free GUI Test Automation Software

    Can anyone recommend a good free GUI test automation tool?

    The guys in my team are inexperienced and new to test automation therefore the record/playback functionality should be decent with generated code that is relatively easy to understand.

    We are testing a database package written in Oracle with the forms accessed via a web client.

    Thanks in advance

    "Good Free", isn't that an oxymoron?

    Have you looked at Selenium? selenium.org This may work well with inexperienced users if your parameters are mostly static for record and playback.

    But if you can use selenium your team expart in the following areas

    1) Good Knowledage any language(like c++,java, perl,paython etc..)
    2) if the people doesn't have any prior automation exp, it's very difficult to handle like Popup,expections,datadriven etc.....

    so for your thing i will suggest better go for record/playback tool like QTP,Silk......

    Re: Free GUI Test Automation Software

    In your situation, I too think Selenium is the best way to go. Watir is a good tool too, but there is no built-in record/playback tool. There are references to a add-on, but could never find it.

    If your team is inexperienced, they can start learning by record/playback within Selenium and then editing withing Selenium IDE. Once they are familiar and confident, go for Selenium RC, which is pretty much a automation driver for many other languages such as C#, Java, Perl etc. I use it with C#, porting the test is really easy.
