Does anyone else find it cumbersome to maintain a script on a dynamically changing page?
I'm running a test where I need to delete an email based on the subject line. The number of emails received is unpredictable and so is the subject line.
Interestingly, after evaluating several automation tools, I find it tedious to have to parse each line of code just to locate the email and then to have to go back and check mark the row for deletion.
Re: correlating scripts
well if you are using static test files, yes, this will become rather tedious after the thrid time you ahve to run it.
One idea is to make the tests more data driven, where the target email subject line is a variable, or something that you can pass in at runtime. This might help with the scripts in that you will have to only modify a single line (or none if you accept run time parameters on input).
What test tool are you using to run your scripts?
