UI regression tests - major challenges and how to overcome them

Web UI testing is often a challenging task but during a regression phase it may turn into a nightmare!

Can it be automated? Many would choose the answer 'yes', but you will face certain complexities when building a system of automated visual tests for your project:

  • More time-consuming in short term: automated UI tests must be written and polished before they start running and yielding correct test data.
  • Maintenance is needed: these tests must be reviewed and updated from time to time. Some tests could become obsolete as project requirements get changed.
  • Finding a testing tool capable of capturing UI issues: not many UI automation testing tools are there in the market today; CSS testing is still a real headache with many of them.

So a good automated testing tool for UI regression testing should not only be helpful with CSS testing but also allow to minimize the preparation period (test creation and fine-tuning) and make test maintenance easy.

And what challenges are most painful for your UI testing? Have you considered automating this process? If so, which tool(s) did you choose and why?

Cool
