    Hi,

    I also want to find a tool to test an application which is based on MVC framework.
    I find abbot may be useful to us and it can record/playback users' actions and generate a xml type script.

    However, it may not be easy to maintain the script and may be much harder to do it when any changes on the GUI.

    for functionality you could use junit / dd-steps framework.
    DD-steps is spring based and is very easy.

    For GUI you can make use QTP (The best one). But the problem is you need to learn vb-script.

    Else the best tool for GUI would be IBM-RFT; requires plain java coding.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answers.
    Meanwhile I find out another testing tool who has a record/playback option.
    When you record your actions it make a Jython script.
    This tool is good and let's say simple and it has a graphic interface.
    Link for others who are interesting:

    Marathon


    Have a nice day

    IBM-RFT works exactly the same way as u mentioned in your tool...only difference is IBM-RFT works in java. other than this it also creates scripts dynamically(java code)...

    Hi,

    For these two free tools Abbot and Marathon, which is the better for functional testing or regression testing?

    Please share your ideas.

    Thanks
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hy,

    I don't know, because I didn't use Abbot, initial I want it.
    I use other like uispec4j.
    And you can look to marathon, it's simple and have good documentation and a very active forum.

    Hope I was useful, if not please ask me.

    Regards
