Abstract—Web testing is the name given to software testing
that focuses on web applications. Complete testing of a web
based system before going live can help address several issues.
Manually testing is a time consuming practice and is difficult to
repeat but can’t be overlooked. Each time a software does not
perform to specifications; the program will record and report
the exact command that caused the problem. Once the problem
is identified and the bug is fixed, one can execute the very same
set of commands to verify the success. There are a number of
commercial and open source tools available for assisting with
the development of test automation. In this paper, automated
test tools named WATIR (Web Application Testing in Ruby)
and Selenium are proposed to support the automated test
scenario for web based applications.
Index Terms—WATIR, ruby, selenium, selenium – IDE, RC, grid, selenium commands.
