UI Test Automation Framework's Significance

A UI Test Automation Framework is a set of functions and resources used to automate user interface (UI) testing. It can be used to simplify and speed up the testing process by providing a consistent, structured approach to test activities. The framework provides an organized way to write, execute, and report on UI tests. It also helps to make sure that tests are repeatable and reliable.

UI test automation framework aids in ensuring the highest level of testing while drastically cutting costs and time to market. It provides a consistent, expandable, and maintainable method for UI testing, enabling teams to work fast and efficiently.

The main benefits of using a UI Test Automation Framework

Improved consistency: A well-defined framework ensures that tests are written and executed consistently across different teams and projects.
Improved reliability: A standardized approach to writing tests makes them more reliable, which leads to fewer false positives and false negatives.
• Faster test execution: Automated tests can be executed faster than manual tests, leading to shorter development cycles and faster feedback.
• Reduced costs: Automated tests can reduce the need for manual testing, resulting in lower costs. 
• Improved test coverage: Automated tests can cover a wider range of scenarios, leading to better coverage of the application under test.

What exactly is the UI Test Automation Framework?

The UI Automation testing framework is a set of libraries that work together to allow UI test automation. It is critical to use the correct tools and strategies that may be merged into a coherent framework to assure success.While there are many frameworks on the market, it is frequently preferable to create a custom UI test automation framework that is tailored to the specific application. This will allow for maximal optimisation and the best results possible.

Blocks of UI Test Automation Framework

•    Package Manager
•    Runner
•    UI Driver
•    Assertion Library

Package manager: The package manager is necessary to load any specific libraries for each block of the framework. Also, it provides references for plugins, scripts, shortcuts, and many other features as well as the version number.

Runner: It aids in the execution of automated tests by reading the files created by testers and determining which checks should be executed. The tester can design an automated check shell and execute anything within it.

UI Driver:  A UI driver interacts with the user interface (UI) of an application in real-time and programmatically demands actions from the browser, such as clicking links, filling forms, and checking to see if specific elements are present on a page.

Assertion Library: The assertion library assesses whether the development approach for UI test automation has been successful or not and shows whether something has changed in the system, resulting in a pass or failure.
