Abstract

When attempting to automate tests across a diverse set of applications, operating systems, and platforms, the input parameters and resultant outputs can be very widely varied in structure, as well as the tests themselves being vastly different. Each team can use their own methods and tools to automate, but this leads to inconsistency in techniques and results across the test organization. Disclosed in this article is a system and technique to derive automated tests having a consistent look and feel across an organization.
