Gateway’s framework provides a well-defined platform to design and develop the automation scripts and minimize the chances of occurrence of coding and logical errors. It provided a structure of all defined standards to be followed by each member of automation team.

Framework based approach also gave the preliminary idea of what to automate and what not to. Essentially automation was done only on tests that would be repeated in every test cycle. An Actual Test Case Document was developed using spreadsheet containing special keywords. This approach ensured that the entire process was data-driven, including the functionality.

Java edition of the product was first automated and then the script was used for .net version. VbScript was used for scripting. Few OCX controls were written for adding custom functions to the scripts all parts of the scripts were programmed instead of using the conventional record and playback approach. Scripts were written in such a way that any number of test cases could be added without making modification to it.
