Capture/Replay Tool

What is Capture/Replay Tool?

GUI capture & replay tools have been developed for testing the applications against graphical user interfaces. Using a capture and replay tool, testers can run an application and record the interaction between a user and the application. The Script is recorded with all user actions including mouse movements and the tool can then automatically replay the exact same interactive session any number of times without requiring a human intervention. This supports fully automatic regression testing of graphical user interfaces.
