Fiserv was using QTP to automate some of the applications and most of the web applications were being tested manually. When the size of the applications grew and the regression suites got bigger, it became difficult to manage the suites manually and guarantee the quality of the application. Fiserv decided to increase the automation coverage and started evaluating automation tools. QTP could not be used as it did not support web applications at that time of evaluation. Also, the company wanted to use an open source tool to try on web automation and came to know about Sahi Pro, which used to be an open source tool at that time and was still evolving.
Sahi Pro Web Test Automation tool is being used by Fiserv for applications that are based on ExtJS and Java. The company is automating testing of applications including CorPoint®, iCom®, MatchPoint®. The browsers used by Fiserv include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome. The overall Test Automation team at Fiserv includes 6 associates who are working on the automation of various products of the company.
Sahi Pro Web Test Automation tool proved to be efficient and beneficial for Fiserv because of the following reasons:
- Earlier it was free of cost and even now, the cost is quite reasonable for the software and the included support services
- It has an ability to run on all browsers used by the company
- Sahi supports programming constructs which makes it a smart tool
- It’s an easy to learn tool and one can gain expertise on it with little or no knowledge of basic programming skills
