GUI Testing and Beyond

[Me] :- So which kind of testing is better- Testing only through GUI or Testing Beyond GUI?

[Guruji]:- Both have their pros & Con’s

Testing only through the GUI

Testing 'beyond' the GUI

is expensive

fast set-up and tear down

limited insight

analyzing dependencies, using mocks, fakes and fault-injection

often only 'happy path'

single aspect per test

multiple aspects in one test

tests are following the system-design


cheaper, faster, more frequent execution

maintenance intensive

less maintenance

long feedback loop

more stable

little confidence

short feedback-loops; early start
