Traditionally, graphical user interface (GUI) test automation is implemented with test scripts, either recorded with capture and replay tools, or written with scripting tools. This requires domain knowledge, and results in high maintenance cost.

For some years now, a scriptless testing approach has been emerging. The idea is not to (entirely) replace scripted testing, but to complement it. It does so by reducing the effort to create test scripts and covering paths outside the happy user scenarios, concentrating on robustness testing instead of functional testing. So far, the approach has been applied successfully in various industry domains. In this presentation, we will present our current journey on applying scriptless GUI test automation at ING with lessons learned.
