Hello, Readers!!

In our earlier blogs on Regression Testing, we discussed in detail about fundamentals of regression testing services, challenges, need, advantage, etc. In this blog, we are going to discuss the top regression testing tools.

Test Automation is a key for regression testing. Manual regression testing tends to get more expensive and time consuming with each new release. Test Automation services always complements the regression test process.

Automated Regression Testing is where one can automate maximum amount of the regression testing efforts. All the earlier performed test cases can be run on new build. In other words, the test cases are set and executing them manually takes time.

Hence, Automating test cases saves a lot of time and is the most efficient regression method. Having said that, the magnitude of regression test automation depends on the amount of test cases that will remain appropriate during the regression cycle time.

If test cases are unpredictable from time to time as application, scope is increasing, then automating the regression procedure will be tedious and time consuming.

Generally, regression-testing tools are of record and playback type. Test cases will be recorded by navigation through the AUT (application under test). It is then verified for expected results.

Regression of GUI Application:

It is difficult to perform GUI regression test when GUI structure is modified. The test cases written on old GUI will become obsolete and are required to be modified.

Reusing the regression test cases means GUI test cases are modified according to new or modified GUI. But this task becomes cumbersome if there are the large set of GUI test cases.
