Xnee is a good automation tool, but it is limited to keystrokes and
using access keys. This will not recognize the objects like push-button,
or menu-item etc. In the windows world this can be compared to Auto-it
But the real advancement in Test Automation can happen only if the tools
are able to recognize the objects (like Winrunner, Rational Robot and
Silk Test etc.)
Also, only the test tool "alone" can not do much for complex integrated
test. We need a test automation framework to support that. Otherwise it
may eventually become un-maintainable.
LDTP is aimed at doing this. This is based on "objects" and
"context-sensitive". It leverages the Keyword Driven Automation
Please visit the site (http://gnomebangalore.org/ldtp), use the tool (in
pre-alpha stage) and give your valuable comments.
