Eggplant.. seriously?
      #697562 - 02/03/12 09:02 AM

I have been reading the posts that the best solution for automation on Macbook that Eggplant.

I had a demo on that yday, but if you were to record each object and name it manually, needless to say tiresome on web apps

I would like to see if I am missing anything (or) any other alternative solution

the bottom line for me, I want to make sure my app works fine on Safari browser on Macbook

Thanks

Web apps I'd probably go with Selenium. You'll need a Safari extension, http://code.google.com/p/selenium/source...ion.java?r=8983

Eggplant I say is good for cross platform tests or if you are testing something that's a thin client (for example something on a presentation server or virtualized desktop) as it's visual recognition vs. property specific.

Ruby + Selenium? Overall as a scripting language I like Ruby. The IRB interactive interpreter and polymorphic features of Ruby makes it easy to debug scripts in real time. I however prefer Java as compiled languages are generally faster and easier to develop framework code on (I work mostly in test framework design/implementation).

Check out FrogLogic Squish for Web. It supports Internet Explorer (6.x - 9.x), Firefox (1.x - 4.x), Safari (Mac OS X and iOS), Chrome, and Opera.
