Maurizio Leotta, Diego Clerissi, Filippo Ricca, Paolo Tonella
2013 2013 20th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE)  
We found that, in the majority of the cases, after a small number of releases (from one to three), the cumulative cost of programmable web testing becomes lower than the cost involved with capture-replay  ...  In this paper, we present an empirical cost/benefit analysis of two different categories of automated functional web testing approaches: (1) capturereplay web testing (in particular, using Selenium IDE  ...  Capture-Replay Web Testing C&R web testing is based on capture/replay automated tools.  ...

Using assertions to help end-user programmers create dependable web macros

Andhy Koesnandar, Sebastian Elbaum, Gregg Rothermel, Lorin Hochstein, Christopher Scaffidi, Kathryn T. Stolee
2008 Proceedings of the 16th ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Foundations of software engineering - SIGSOFT '08/FSE-16  
We have integrated our techniques for assertion generation and evaluation into a web macro tool, and performed an empirical study investigating its use.  ...  Web macros face dependability problems of their own, however: changes in websites or failure on the part of end-user programmers to anticipate possible macro behaviors can cause macros to act incorrectly  ...  EMPIRICAL STUDY To explore whether assertions in web macros can be useful, we performed an empirical study.  ...

2011 2011 27th IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM)  
Regression testing is carried out by running the selected test cases on consecutive versions of the system under test, while automatically capturing changes in the database state during system execution  ...  The captured database manipulations for each test case are automatically compared across system versions, and test cases that deviate between two system versions are either due to anticipated changes in  ...  Assessing different input sources and their combinations is therefore an objective of our empirical investigation in the next section.  ...
