As of now, there exists no tool, open source or otherwise, to facilitate automation of test cases which run across platforms. For e.g. selenium is great to handle across browser testing; but has no support when a need to do image based testing; web service testing or mobile application testing, arises. Currently there is no framework available where one can make use of more than one automation tool in the same test case.
The objective of the present paper is to present a solution (a test automation framework) with which one can use a fusion of test automation tools, leveraging the capabilities of the individual tool/tools to achieve a state of complete test automation and at the same time reducing the overall test automation effort required. This paper outlines such a solution in depth in the underlying sections. Yet, for an end user there is common language (keyword driven) for automation.
