gtklogger: A Tool For Systematically Testing Graphical User Interfaces
Stephen A. Langer, Faical Y. Congo, Andrew C. Reid, Rhonald Lua, Valerie R. Coffman
We describe a scheme for systematically testing the operation of a graphical user interface. The scheme provides a capability for generating event logs, which are recordings of a user session with the interface. These logs can be annotated with assertion statements, comparing reference test data with data retrieved by introspection on the GUI elements. Such an annotated log forms a test case, suitable for incorporation into a regression test suite.
