WET is an opensource alternative to commercial and proprietory web testing tools. While WET provides you the
freedom that comes built into opensource applications, it retains and in some cases surpasses all the features required
by a web automation testing tool. WET was created by a team of expert testers who understand the needs of
the testing community. As a result WET comes bundled with some very powerful capabilities that are required
for a succesful test automation project. WET uses the Proxied UI mechanism to create initial scripts, a
concept that allows one to create test scripts with the same ease as in test recorders, but leaves out the issues that
come bundled with recorders Finally, Commercial support for WET is available through
Thwameva Technologies, which allows your enterprise to buy you
peace of mind, while still enjoying alll the benefits of opensource.
WET which started off as a small extension library for
Watir, has come a long way and
is now bundled with many compelling features. As the codebase of WET
has grown multiple times, it now uses Watir just as the library to
drive IE. WET not only offers you all the that Watir offers
but many more powerful features to help make your test automation
effort a success.
How WET compares with other tools
Best of both worlds
- Script assistant for easy script creation
WET comes with a script assistant which dramatically reduces the testing effort. At the same time, the
innovative concept used by WET helps to do away with some of the inherent issues that are part of
recorders for test automation.
Powerful scripting ability
WET uses Ruby, a powerful object oriented
scripting language. that lets you acheive just about any level of automation that they require.
Choose your right mix
Using WET you can a) build most of the scripts using the UI, b) build all of your scripts by hand, from the ground
up or c) Use the WET UI as a helper to identify objects, create object depots (repositories) and
build the skeleton test definition. The beauty of WET is that there is no distinction between the scripts created
when you create using the UI vs. the scripts that you'd create if you had to write the tests from scratch.
