Selenium HQ’s biggest advantage is that it is customizable. Its other most valuable feature is that the driver interface is really helpful and user-friendly; Selenium HQ makes it easy to navigate through pages and sections of an app quickly and easily, even including things like clicking, scrolling down, tagging, putting through SendKeys, as well as other actions that need testing in an application. One drawback to Selenium HQ is that there is no object repository like the one that can be found in QTP, which is ironic since continuous integration practices have lately become more common. Also, it can sometimes be hard to create locators for elements and because they are deeply embedded it can take a long time to do so.
Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is similarly fantastic. With their newest release, you can test via scripts instead of models using the controller. In addition, the model-based test automation they offer helps reduce the test maintenance process. The solution is also equipped to uncover critical bugs and to verify if and when they have been fixed. However, I think the integrated development environment could use some improvement. It lacks shortcut commands that can help create functions and it would also be helpful if the solution provided features to address complex plans, which at the moment it does not. Their online help and user support documentation is also outdated, which can be frustrating at times. In general, though, it is a good product and it has good scalability.
I think Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is a good solution for significantly reducing testing time spent while also increasing accuracy and producing precise results. However, if you are looking for the best tool out there for automated testing, I think Selenium HQ is best because it is highly customizable.
The solution is an open-source tool. They should also build other features and tools to assist in further capabilities. A drawback of Selenium is that it only focuses on web applications. If it could be integrated into one application together with APM, it would be in peer competition with other players. Developers tend to bundle both in one, but Selenium is just in a silo. The solution's UI path needs to be modernized. The solution needs to offer a mobile platform.
