Test Automation Overview

Test automation is the process of using software to control the execution of tests by using verifications to compare the actual outcomes of the execution with the expected outcomes.

A test automation framework is an integrated system that sets the rules of automation of a specific product. This system integrates the tests, the test data sources, the object details, and various reusable modules. These components need to be assembled to represent a business process. The framework provides the basis of test automation and simplifies the automation effort.
