The main goal of Automation testing is to increase the test efficiency and develop software value.
What kinds of functions to automate using Automation testing tools:
It’s true that everything is not to be automated using Automation testing process, things to be automated are; login forms, registration forms,and the place where numbers of users access the Software simultaneously can be automated. Moreover, all GUI items, connections with databases, field validations and many-more can be efficiently tested automatically rather than manually.
