Hi Raquel!
There are various type of automation tools.
For example:
1. Record / Playback type
2. Load/performance test tools
3. Data-driven tools
4. Web test tools -
5. Analysing tools-
-----code analyzers
-----coverage analyzers
-----memory analyzers .
6. Miscellaneous tools like--- tools for test case management, documentation
management, bug reporting, and configuration
management, etc...

For small / simple projects, the time needed to learn and implement these tools may not be worth, unless testers are adequately familiar with these tools. However, for larger and complex projects, or on-going long-term projects these tools can be valuable.

Thanks JAY very useful information... about type of tools...
Possibly. For small projects, the time needed to learn and implement them may not be worth it unless personnel are already familiar with the tools. For larger projects, or on-going long-term projects they can be valuable.

A common type of automated tool is the 'record/playback' type. For example, a tester could click through all combinations of menu choices, dialog box choices, buttons, etc. in an application GUI and have them 'recorded' and the results logged by a tool. The 'recording' is typically in the form of text based on a scripting language that is interpretable by the testing tool. Often the recorded script is manually modified and enhanced. If new buttons are added, or some underlying code in the application is changed, etc. the application might then be retested by just 'playing back' the 'recorded' actions, and comparing the logging results to check effects of the changes. The problem with such tools is that if there are continual changes to the system being tested, the 'recordings' may have to be changed so much that it becomes very time-consuming to continuously update the scripts. Additionally, interpretation and analysis of results (screens, data, logs, etc.) can be a difficult task. Note that there are record/playback tools for text-based interfaces also, and for all types of platforms.

Another common type of approach for automation of functional testing is 'data-driven' or 'keyword-driven' automated testing, in which the test drivers are separated from the data and/or actions utilized in testing (an 'action' would be something like 'enter a value in a text box'). Test drivers can be in the form of automated test tools or custom-written testing software. The data and actions can be more easily maintained - such as via a spreadsheet - since they are separate from the test drivers. The test drivers 'read' the data/action information to perform specified tests. This approach can enable more efficient control, development, documentation, and maintenance of automated tests/test cases.

Not so easy, Even in automation tools also we have to right code, debug and run. Every thing we need to check with out bugs. Finally our aim is to release bug free product. What i feel is manual and automation both are same work, but not easy work.
Hii raquel,

Automation testing tools makes Testing easier. But based on the project size it will be useful. For small projects and continuasly changing requirements Automation will not be useful. For larger projects and for Regression testing automation is more helpful than the Manual

• Other automated tools can include:

code analyzers - monitor code complexity, adherence to standards, etc.

coverage analyzers - these tools check which parts of the code have been exercised by a test, and may be oriented to code statement coverage, condition coverage, path coverage, etc.

memory analyzers - such as bounds-checkers and leak detectors.

load/performance test tools - for testing client/server and web applications under various load
levels.

web test tools - to check that links are valid, HTML code usage is correct, client-side and server-side programs work, a web site's interactions are secure.

other tools - for test case management, documentation management, bug reporting, and configuration management.

Yes, The tool of test automation makes your testing process more friendly.

According to automation testing experts, Test automation one of the best practices of software testing in which test cases, test data, etc manage with the help of test automation tools. The main goal of automation testing is quality assurance. Every automation testing company like Testrig Technologies uses different types of test automation tools to improve the testing process. Here is the list of top Automation testing tools which are mostly referred by the Automation testing experts.
