Test Automation and QTP is a complete guide to the test automation process and the QTP test automation tool from HP.
Summary Of The Book
Test automation involves the use of special software to test an application or software module, to check if it works properly, before it is fully implemented.
Test automation tools can simulate a virtual working environment for the software being tested, so that its actual working can be tested without any bugs affecting other software solutions already in place.
Test automation tools also automate repetitive tasks that previously had to be done manually. They can test the code to see if it is working correctly, and the user interface can also be tested to check if the application behaves as it should in response to user generated events.
