Neelam Sirohi, Anshu Parashar . Component based Integration Testing using Abbot Tool. International Journal of Computer Applications. 74, 19 ( July 2013), 28-32. DOI=10.5120/13003-0247
Testing is an important part in software development. When a component based software system are developed then to ensure the quality of system, testing must be done. Components have implementation transparency property and they are heterogeneous in nature. When the components are integrated to make a system then unexpected result may occur. So integration testing is necessary when components are integrated. In this paper, a student record system is implemented and its components are tested using abbot tool. Abbot tool is used for integration/functional testing. Abbot builds upon the java. awt. Robot class to provide an automated event generation and validation framework for Swing GUI components. The framework can be used to create, record, and execute scripts and programmatic test cases in Java. Abbot also has a script editor called Costello that facilitates the creation of scripts in XML. This paper also describes the features of abbot tool.
