A Visual Testing Revolution
Automated visual testing is a technique for visually inspecting differences in views over time. Instead of manually crawling pages or coding complicated assertions in automation, we can take visual snapshots of our pages and compare them over time to detect changes. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a snapshot is worth a thousand assertions.
In this talk, I’ll show you how to do this type of visual testing with Applitools. We’ll automate a basic web UI test together using traditional techniques with Selenium WebDriver and Java, and then we’ll supercharge it with visual snapshots. We’ll see how Applitools Visual AI can pinpoint meaningful differences instead of insignificant noise. We’ll also add these tests to PractiTest for proper test case management.
By the end of this talk, you’ll see how automated visual testing will revolutionize functional test automation!
