Book Description

Automated testing of applications is a hot topic in software development, but doing it effectively and flexibly is a difficult task. Sikuli provides an excellent balance, leveraging the simplicity of constructing tests using screenshots and the expressive power of the Python programming language to construct automated tests.

Instant Sikuli Starter: Effective Test Automation presents a series of examples that build on one another to demonstrate the key features provided by Sikuli. You will also learn additional techniques that will allow you to construct effective automated application test suites quickly and easily.

Beginning with a quick introduction to Sikuli, you will be guided through everything you need to know to write your own script with Sikuli. Learn how to use Sikuli for automated testing starting from the very basics, such as starting applications, taking screenshots, and navigating the mouse, before moving on to more advanced topics like constructing large testing suites using reusable test fragments. Along the way, you will also learn how to leverage Sikuli's links to both the Python language and Java to create richer tests. Everything you'll need to write effective tests, manage test suites, execute tests, and generate reports is presented in a series of examples demonstrating the power of Sikuli. Towards the end of this book, you will become more confident in your ability to execute test suites and generate reports using Sikuli.
