Abstract: In the recent era, the most challenging task to any IT field or a company is to consistently progress and maintain the standards as for quality and also to develop the software systems efficiently. In most of the projects related to software, due to the constraints of time and value, testing is mostly to be neglected. However, manual testing increases time, cost, and is therefore not economical. Software testing primarily involves execution of a program to seek out errors. Effective testing creates top quality code. Automation testing, otherwise called Test Automation, is a point at which product is tested using software by writing scripts. This is a process of automation wherein the manual steps are automated through the software. Manual Testing requires an individual’s effort to be spent in front of a computer for careful execution of test scenario steps. Testing scenario that undergo Automation requires Automation tool for the execution of the test cases. The software of automation gives us an added advantage of testing the system by entering the test data, wherein the results of actual are compared with the expected results to generate detailed test reports. Automation Testing focuses on the key area where the test case suites are executed in a quicker and repeated manner when compared with running the test cases manually.
