Don’t be an Automation Miser


I don’t know if you are the kind of person who flips to the end of the book to see what happens, but I’m going to do that in this post.  I’ll start with the end of story.  Here it is: Embrace automation, not because it’s automation, but because of what it can do for you. Now for the story.

I was working on a script to do some fuzz style testing of some of our UI input fields and I got to thinking (because writing code has a way of making my brain wander off into the metaphysical realm) about why I was writing this.  Why bother automating?  This particular script is going to be very different from what we usually think of when we think of automated tests (i.e. regression tests), and so does it have a different goal or is the purpose of it the same as…

Extent Reports – One of the best Reporting library for Automation Frameworks

ExtentReports is an open-source reporting library for test automation. It is very easily integrated with all test-frameworks (TestNG, JUnit, NUnit etc.) and provides better looking reports. Because Extent is created as a logging utility, it is also possible to use custom logs for each test, add snapshots & videos, assign categories and authors and filter using several parameters.

  • Very simple to use API
  • It is an open-source test automation reporting.
  • Provide quick generation of great looking HTML reports with responsive UI.
  • Parallel execution of classes and methods supported.
  • Creates a single report file, so less management of artifacts required (Online only*, Offline report stores all artifacts locally)
  • Can be customized heavily using an external config file
  • Provide results info into summary via dashboard, complete execution info along with all the system details.
  • Able to coordinate test-runner logs.
  • This library is agnostic, i.e. it works all different frameworks, Test Ng, Junit, BDD framework. Also, it has Java version as well as Dot Net version.

The island of Phuket has long been misunderstood. Firstly, the ‘h’ is silent. Ahem. And secondly, Phuket doesn’t feel like an island at all. It’s so huge (the biggest in Thailand) that you rarely get the sense that you’re surrounded by water, which is probably the reason why Ko (meaning ‘island’) was dropped from its name. Dubbed the ‘pearl of the Andaman’ by marketing execs, this is Thailand’s original flavour of tailor-made fun in the sun.


Phuket nestles in balmy Andaman Sea waters on Thailand’s Indian Ocean coastline 862 kilometres south of Bangkok. Phuket formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoyed a rich and colourful history. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and was frequently mentioned in foreign trader’s ship logs.
