What is most valuable?

  • Automate any web page by providing URL
  • One can use any programming language such as Ruby, Java, Python and few others
  • Support for several types of locators
  • Cross browser support

There have been no issues with the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

It is an open source product with a strong user base and lot of user community support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have briefly used QTP. There are a few reasons.It is an open-source tool and it has cross browser support. Testers can run automated test cases in different browser, and QA engineers can write test cases in his/her choice of language such as Java, Ruby, Python and a few others.

How was the initial setup?

The set up is straightforward if you have a programming background.

What was our ROI?

It is an open source tool but price in terms of time it is totally worth it. It saves us lot of time and cost once implemented. The cross browser testing functionality helped us to find issues quicker in specific browsers.

What other advice do I have?

The product has record and play back tool but it is always better to write your own code and implement the framework.

Jenkins is free and it has so many plugins even.
I experienced 2 migrations to Jenkins from TeamCity and CircleCI because of the growing automation needs.
