Web UI Testing

Web UI Testing With Parasoft SOAtest

Protect Your Brand & Validate Your Customer's User Experience

Parasoft SOAtest supports integration testing for web applications by capturing user interactions directly in the browser without requiring any scripting. Easily manage web UI tests with simple click-actions to modify the test, and connect API and database tests with the UI test to design even the most complex test flow logic without any scripting.

If you’re already using Selenium for web UI testing, improve your UI test creation and maintenance with Parasoft Selenic, an AI-powered solution that makes it easy to maintain your UI tests as your application changes over time. Parasoft Selenic works with regular Selenium tests, providing both self-healing at runtime and recommendations post-execution, to help teams test rapidly and reliably.

How Does It Work?

Parasoft SOAtest provides integration testing for web applications from the user interface layer within the browser. To build a test scenario, users exercise the web UI in a browser and SOAtest records the user-level actions. Those actions can be associated with keywords for keyword-driven testing and then users can modify or augment the test scenario before playing it back in multiple browsers across multiple operating systems. Playback verifies that each scenario behaves correctly as the web application changes, regardless of platform.

Web UI testing in SOAtest means that you have an arsenal of tools at your disposal.

Users can enhance test scenarios by integrating them with other facets of the web application or test environment. For instance, a test scenario could query a database for login credentials to populate a login form. Users can leverage web services such as SOAP or REST to populate a test environment or reset data to the expected state when the web testing scenario begins. Test scenarios can integrate with built-in JSON and XML tools that can validate responses or extract data for use elsewhere in the scenario.

Web testing scenarios can then be reused for load and performance testing. By leveraging the work already done to create functional test scenarios, it’s easy to perform load testing within a single user experience. To make it even easier, SOAtest identifies data that changes for each user or each run and automatically configures the performance tests to update this changing data wherever possible.


Benefit From the Parasoft Approach

Validate the Complete User Experience With Omni-Channel Testing

The web interface represents only one interface for today’s application. To truly validate the customer experience, you cannot just test web interface, you have to consider the other human and non-human interfaces to your application. With Parasoft SOAtest, you can inject API, microservice, and database tests into your UI tests for omni-channel testing. These different types of tests can then communicate with each other, passing data and other information for an efficient testing experience. Without this, users have to rely on multiple technologies stitched together with scripts using complex and brittle solutions. With Parasoft, you can create complete tests that span the whole user experience, end-to-end.

Leverage Automated Test Flow Logic to Build Flexible Web Test Scenarios

While web testing, you might not always want to start your execution at the beginning and stop at the end — you might need to wait for a loading button to finish or click on a button only if another button is visible. This decision-making requires your test to think and evaluate the current state of things before it makes decisions on how to proceed. SOAtest can perform complex actions such as decision making, polling, and value evaluation during the course of test execution, all without scripting.

Build Rich and Meaningful UI Tests (Even Novice Testers)

With SOAtest, no scripting is required. Web functional tests are created by recording actions on the web application in the browser and configuration is completed entirely in the SOAtest user interface, so users don’t have to learn a scripting language to create and modify tests manually by hand.
