Robot Framework is a generic test automation framework designed for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development (ATDD). It has easy-to-use tabular test data syntax and utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach.

Robot Framework Test Automation provides a detailed overview of acceptance test management practices and principles. Readers will also be introduced to the advanced techniques that can be used to customize the test suite, along with helpful tips and tricks to extend and leverage it in a wide variety of scenarios. The book covers the Robot Framework in detail, helping readers test desktop applications using Java Swing. It will also enable developers to gain a thorough knowledge of tricky activities such as setting up a test environment and using it with Selenium. Starting with a detailed explanation of the need for automated acceptance test driven development, this guide will help readers through an empty test project creation and execution for proof of concept and validation of installation.

This book is ideal for automation engineers, QA engineers, developers or testers who are looking to get started with Robot Framework. No prior knowledge of Robot Framework or acceptance testing is required, although a basic knowledge of Python is required for few sections of the book.
