Table Driven Automation
Summary:

This paper is a guide on how to create Table Driven Test automation with off-the-shelf utilities and commercially available GUI testing tools. It demonstrates the benefits of using a table driven approach and presents various engines, utilities and documents that enhance or support this third generation testing architecture, which I call Enterprise Test Engine Suite Technology (E-TEST).
