Karate is the only open-source tool to combine API test-automation, mocks, performance-testing and even UI automation into a single, unified framework. You don’t have to compile (Java) code. Just write tests in a readable syntax.
Infra testing is mostly uncharted territory
I use Selenium to write most of my automated checks, and the PageObjects pattern is a must. My current team is using Cypress and, to my surprise, this test framework recommends
AppActions instead of
PageObjects. So I decided to benchmark both patterns using the following criteria:
- Can it abstract page selectors?
- Can it abstract page actions?
- Is it easy to write and maintain those abstractions?
- Is it easy to write tests?
