TUTORIAL: Automated Visual Testing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Functional test automation is a wonderful way to frequently and expeditiously execute regression testing. However, the test scripts that we write are limited to the few assertions we’ve considered. Many times, these assertions only cover the tip of the iceberg and account for a small fraction of what a human being would have subconsciously verified.

For example, a test automation script can verify that when adding 2 and 2 via a calculator app, the sum that is returned on screen is 4. But does the 4 appear correctly? Is it upside down? Or sideways? Is it the right color? Are there errors that appear on other areas of the screen? These are all things that the human eye would notice, but an automated regression test would not. The test would continue to pass, even with all of the aforementioned errors. This is where visual validation comes in!

Visual validation is a relatively new concept to add to your test automation toolbox. Applitools, a sophisticated visual validation tool, uses AI to mimic the human eye and brain to verify the look and feel of your application.

In this workshop, you will develop automated UI tests using Java, Selenium WebDriver, JUnit, and Applitools. You’ll learn when and where to add visual assertions, how to work with various match levels including ones suitable for dynamic content, and how to evaluate and resolve visual test results.

Existing familiarity with test automation (even if with different tools) will be helpful for this workshop.
