Advantages of Using Object Maps

Object maps have the following advantages:
  • They simplify test maintenance by applying changes made to a locator for an object map item to all tests that include the corresponding object map item.
  • They ease the handling of locators in a large scale functional testing environment.
  • They can be managed independent of individual scripts.
  • They substitute complex locator names with descriptive names, which can make scripts easier to read.
  • They eliminate dependence on locators, which may change if the test application is modified.
