Abstract: Automated software testing is an important and time-saving activity used by software testing teams, working on rapid and large scale software projects. TestComplete is an example of a currently widely used testing tool. However, its test recorder tool shows some weaknesses when using GUI (Graphical User Interface) test recording, for dynamic web applications. After recording a GUI test using TestComplete recorder, TestComplete fails to run again later on, because some of the onscreen objects cannot be recognized by it. However, since the TestComplete recorder tool generates tests in scripting languages, the tests can themselves be refined and modified to be robust and much more accurate. This paper presents an algorithm for writing robust and successful test scripts for TestComplete against dynamic web applications. It also presents a comparative study with the Web Performance Test tool provided by Microsoft Visual Studio.
