Revisiting the Notion of GUI Testing

Abdulaziz Alkhalid, Yvan Labiche, Sashank Nekkanti

Abstract

The practitioner interested in reducing software verification effort may found herself lost in the many alternative definitions of Graphical User Interface (GUI) testing that exist and their relation to the notion of system testing. One result of these many definitions is that one may end up testing twice the same parts of the Software Under Test (SUT), specifically the application logic code. We revisit the notion of GUI testing and introduce a taxonomy of activities pertaining to testing GUI-based software. We use the taxonomy to map a representative sample of research works and tools, showing several aspects of testing GUI-software may be overlooked.
