There are several approaches available for creating Web application UI test automation. This paper describes the motivation for creating a new Web application test framework, and briefly describes the architecture and design of the framework. The framework is browser agnostic, easy to use, employs a high level programming language and development environment allowing integrated debugging and object oriented design, permits low level access to UI controls, and is resilient to UI changes in the application under test. The architecture of the framework features a two-layer design which isolates all browser specific functionality, allowing test scenario developers to focus on testing related issues rather than on implementation details. The architecture of the framework can be used with most modern operating system platforms. Early experience with the framework has been promising.
