GUI Testing

Test Case Generation

To generate a ‘good’ set of test cases, the test designer must be certain that their suite covers all the functionality of the system and also has to be sure that the suite fully exercises the GUI itself. The difficulty in accomplishing this task is twofold: one has to deal with domain size and then one has to deal with sequences. In addition, the tester faces more difficulty when they have to do regression testing.

The size problem can be easily illustrated. Unlike a CLI (command line interface) system, a GUI has many operations that need to be tested. A very small program such as Microsoft WordPad has 325 possible GUI operations [1]. In a large program, the number of operations can easily be an order of magnitude larger.
