The current business application is large, multi-tired, distributed and integrated which require higher level of sophistication to implement and manage. The current quality methodologies rely on manual work which makes the application venerable due to its limitation and entails higher cost. Running complete regression suite manually every time is cumbersome and often do not complete due to either time or resource limitation. Finding more defects during testing life cycle has tremendous effect on the quality of an application. This project is intended to run more number of tests in lesser time and reduction in overall cost of the project and this has been achieved by implementing an automation tool. Various tools and frameworks are studied to fulfill this requirement, also the results are stated and compared. The implication of implementing an automation test tool is higher software quality assurance.
