Common Web Test Automation Challenges

By CIOReview | Thursday, June 24, 2021

Many UI components of a web application are subject to regular changes in logic as a result of new integrations or the inclusion of new features or functionalities. As a result, maintaining UI testing scripts becomes difficult for testing teams.

Fremont, CA: Web test automation is changing the face of software development for the better. Automation enables test teams to quickly and accurately generate test data, execute complicated test cases across numerous platforms, and detect flaws early in the development cycle. Modern test automation systems serve enterprises in a variety of ways; when implemented effectively, such technologies can increase the efficiency of a test team, improve software quality, and reduce time to market.

Challenges of Web Test Automation

Web test automation enables testers to completely and quickly test the functioning of web applications, ensuring that there are no deviations in the results from the desired user experience and interactions. However, even this advantageous technique poses some difficulties for testers, such as:

  • Managing frequent UI changes: Many UI components of a web application are subject to regular changes in logic as a result of new integrations or the inclusion of new features or functionalities. As a result, maintaining UI testing scripts becomes difficult for testing teams.
  • Image comparisons: Accurate detection of pixel variations in shape, size, color, and format is a critical component of the web testing process. Image comparisons can be handled more efficiently with the help of test automation.
  • Multiple error handling: With web test automation, error handling may be a time-consuming procedure, especially when test teams are tackling huge projects with complicated scenarios and big data volumes.
  • Long test script execution time: Web test automation is typically a time-consuming process. Depending on the amount of test cases, it takes a long time to execute the test script. However, in today's fast-paced technology landscape and agile development environment, testers have only a limited amount of time to ensure the quality of releases.
