Software Automated Testing - Programmed Testing
Automated testing can be done with tools such as Rational Robots by writing scripts. Sometimes we need to write another software code that is a wrapper to the software component that needs to be testing. The wrapper component will programmatically keep querying the software component and checks the results and performance.
This wrapper component is used to automate the test cases. It may or may not have user interface. It can log the input and output results. These results set can be used in the future in regression testing.
