It is a good question and for a manual tester wishing to become an Automation Tester, you need to consider:
– do you have any development experience? If Yes, then try Selenium Webdriver. If No try HP UFT or SmartBear TestComplete and use the record & playback features to show what can be done.
– is there a dominant technology at work? E.g. some automation work better on certain platforms and technology.
Hope this helps and update the post when you make a choice.August 30, 2017 at 5:59 am #17254November 28, 2017 at 11:45 pm #18121@lholmvikOnly available when logged in
Nice list, I think Selenium is the most popular automation testing software right now. For enterprise level testing, these have a good balance of functionality and accessibility:

- Plutora Test (nice UI, the requirements traceability matrix is great for visibility)
- qTest (easy to learn and use)
- HPQC (bit expensive)
There are many automation testing tools available in market. it is totally depend upon your requirements what you need to to do. Selenium , Katalon studio and UFT are one of them.February 14, 2018 at 12:20 pm #18595February 21, 2018 at 6:32 am #18664@azharuddinOnly available when logged in
Within the software industry, once a product reaches the stable manual testing phase, every organization usually thinks of automated testing to save on the costs involved in manual testing. Since testing cost is an important factor for any project, organizations have started preferring open source test automation tools (which have reached a stage where they now rival the commercial ones) instead of investing in costly commercial testing tools. With no licensing costs, open source automation testing tools provide competitive features for automating the testing of software applications as well as Web portals.
A variety of open source automation testing tools is available for almost all types of testing such as functional, Web, UAT, regression, performance etc. Because of the extent to which these open source tools have matured, it’s time to think about them and have them in your QA automation kit. There are also various open source tools available to support the different testing types such as White Box Testing (Unit Testing, for e.g., using JUnit) and Black Box Testing (system/regression testing, for e.g., using Selenium, Sahi, Watir, TestMaker, LogiTest, TestGen4J, FitNesse etc).
Selenium is a package of various test components which consists of the following three major tools. Each one has a specific role in aiding the development of test automation for a Web application.
Selenium IDE – A Firefox extension to record test cases and suites.– Used to run tests on different browsers and systems.
Selenium Grid – Runs multiple instances of Selenium RC at once.
Qualitia and Tellurium – A wrapper for the Selenium engine.

As per my experience, one of the best tools to start with Automation testing is TestingWhiz. This is a code-less test automation tool, which provides multiple solutions related to web, API, database & mobile apps like web test automation, automated database testing, automated mobile testing, etc. This tool is mostly preferred by the beginners or those who are switching from manual testing to automation testing, because of its code-less scripting feature, i.e. test scripts are prepared using the inbuilt test commands, which makes the overall implementation faster, resulting in efficient test outputs. Also, this tool has various integrations like integration with a database, bug tracking tools, test management tools, etc. For better clarity, you can download its Free Enterprise version and start with automation testing.</p>
Few other good tools for automation testing are Selenium, Testcomplete, etc…

I had earlier contributed this forum on what possible tools you could use for test automation. Here is a more detailed list to help you out. Also, I do agree with some of the comments in this forum regarding it is difficult to name the “best” tool. Rather, you need to evaluate and see what tools makes sense in the context of your project. You need to
- Analyze what is the Cost vs Value of doing automation?
- What are the goals you want to achieve via automation?
- Do you want to go open source or use vendor tools?
- Do you have a mixture of non-technical and technical testers who will be doing automation? If so, that totally changes the view of the tools you are going to select.
- Do you have an already existing automation framework and you are trying to use a tool to complement it? Or are you going to use a tool to replace the existing framework?
The above some of the questions that can help you think about the tool you want to use for automation.
