Depending on your projects and your QA team’s nature, your choice of automation testing tool must be compatible with many different aspects, such as project scope and requirements, in addition to its reputation. The best tool available does not guarantee the best testing outcome. It must be the right one.
In the software testing world, there are two types of testing techniques – manual and automated. Both kinds aim to execute the test case, then compare the actual outcome with the expected result. To put it simply, manual testing is a testing technique performed by human effort to ensure the software code does anything it is supposed to do. So, what is automation testing?
Last week, our team at Katalon Studio partnered with Applitools to present a webinar: Top 5 Features to Look for in a Codeless Automation Solution. With the rise in demands for QualityatSpeed products, there’s no denying the benefit of automation testing software has on product development cycles: they shorten the release cycle, and fast to match the tech industry’s ever-changing nature with developments in the testing industry itself.
API testing remained an essential part of test automation and CI/CD process for QA teams to stay committed to short release cycles and frequent changes. API testing eliminates the need for maintaining scripts following the changes in the application under test’s UI.

Postman was first developed as a side project for simplifying API workflow and testing projects.
If you write software for a living, you probably have a bias toward coded tests and against all things codeless. Most software engineers who become test engineers trust themselves to write well-designed structured code. Some people see record-and-playback as cheating, demeaning, or otherwise indicative of poor workmanship. Yet, research shows that test code maintenance costs correlate directly to the number of lines of written test code.
In Web UI testing, testers have to deal with increasing new page objects and changing identifiers when the web application grows. No matter if you are a manual or an automation tester, updating object locators for the Application Under Test (AUT) is a required step when changes are made. This helps ensure regression testing flows without friction and all key functionalities are not affected.
