I've always been under the impression that Robot was primarily a Record/Playback tool. I know you can edit the code that it records, but it seems to me the tests require lots of maintenance. I am about to evaluate the tool and after going through the User's Guide, I have no reason to believe otherwise. I have about 6 years of automation experience with Segue's SilkTest and have never used this or any other automation tool before. Am I way off base here or am I wasting my time evaluating this product?
As far as the maintenance goes I guess it depends on how you are writing your scripts as well as how often your AUT changes. Maintenance is on going but I don't consider it to be out of line or even a big demand on my time. With some custom scripting it can do a lot of things.
