Katalon Studio – Promising Automation Tool

a couple of years ago

I am working with Selenium Automation tool for almost five years now and has developed many Frameworks solving many challenges I faced automating Application under test. Listing down few of the challenges –

  • Synchronization.
  • Multiple Browser Testing.
  • Maintaining Web Elements.
  • Writing utilities like wait utility, interaction with excel sheet, sending emails, reports etc.

These are some of the challenges I have faced the list is long.

Recently, I came across a tool which looks promising – Katalon Studio which is like a wrapper written over Selenium.

It provides all the important feature which one needs from a framework like –

  • It’s free to use.
  • Provides a GUI to write test cases.
  • Writing and maintaining test cases is simple with features like drag and drop. dropdown select etc.
  • Provides inbuilt methods to use.
  • Object Repository.
  • Object Identification.
  • Reporting Feature.
  • Sending Email is easy.
  • Record and Play Feature.

and much more.
