We are planning to implement automated testing in our project. The question at the moment is what tool to use, ideally it would be open source (ie no licence fees).
The system to be tested is client/server, and the application is built using Java.
The application has many screens ome are static, some dynamic changing according to serial input messages received.
Also it interacts with other systems and the messages are sent in xml's.
Tool would need to capture that all the information is captured and sent back to respective components.
There may be a requirement to check for correct colour(s) in fields and maximum limit for strings of characters.
Thanks for your help and ideas.
