The Testcase Generator by using JavaScript event listener (referred as Generator thereinafter) can automatically create test cases for web-based applications. Also, the content created by the Generator can be used in some documents, such as technote and help. Relative to other web-based automation testing tools, Generator records user’s operation steps on web applications with natural language instead of machine language. Therefore, the created test cases can be read by person who is not experienced in programming, or can be used in product documents. In addition, the test cases are dynamically created from user’s operations with defined words and format, in that way it somehow assures the correctness and sufficiency of created test cases.

Referring to Fig. 1, the process is as follows:
1. When the page of web application is loaded by browser, an event listener will be added into the current page, and be ready to start its work.

2. When user is doing some operation on UI, the event will be triggered.

3. The Generator detects the dom under current operation.

4. Then the Generator analyzes the dom and context, and get the object type.

5. Using predetermine format and words to make sentence for user operation and objects , for example, "Input a username 'John' into the Username field".

6. Combine the sentence into current test case.

Fig. 2 is a design diagram for the Generator. Referring to Fig. 2, the upper half part is the UI of the web application which is displayed in a Browser. And the lower half part is the UI of the Generator which mainly includes Testcase Dashboard and builds in the Browser Add-on UI. When operations are performing on the web application , the test case is at the same time creating in the Testcase Dashboard. The UI of the Generator and the UI of the web application are on the same window . It could be easier to review test case creating.

The advantages of the Generator are showing on the following aspects:
1. Increased speed. While the test case creator finishes the operati...
