why we need test automation 

The simplistic answer for this is to get maximum efficiency and to utilize the resources in a complete way. Let us first discuss why we automate our software product.

Automation Testing is necessary to save the rework in regression testing and for saving the time to fill multiple page lengthy forms.

By automating our products we can be assure of its already fixed functionality and also merge modules to skip the execution time of a process.

While planning for automation of a software product, its framework design is as necessary as while building a shopping mall its blue print is necessary.

Framework design needs to collect and specify all the requirements that are mandatory for automating a software product. The requirements should be analyzed and freeze on the basis of their feasibility.

There may be possibility that some of the requirement cannot be automated and no framework can be created for these requirements.

test automation framework
Framework is a combination of test-data handling, coding standards, and object repository management that are followed during automation scripting which results in producing beneficial outcomes such as re-usage of the same code in multiple projects, higher portability and decrease the script maintenance cost etc.
Types of Automation Frameworks:
# Test Library Architecture Framework: Test scripts are initially created using "Record & Playback" method. After that tasks inside the scripts are grouped into Functions. There Functions are called by main text script which is called Driver in different ways to create test cases.
# Data Driven Testing Framework: Test case logic resides in Test Scripts and Test Data is separated and kept outside the Test Scripts in this type of framework. Test Data is read from external files such as Excel Files, Text Files, CSV Files, etc. and are saved in the Test Script as variables.
# Keyword Driven Framework: The Keyword-Driven consists of data tables and keywords, and is not dependent on automation tool for execution.
