  • > Hence in Manual Testing, a person will be performing the testing instead of tools and where as in Automation Testing, a tool will be performing testing with an intention of saving testing time of a tester

How can an Automation Tool perform Testing?

  • > Step#1: Testers/Automation engineers will create the automation code using any Selenium supported language say Java and put the developed code into the Automation tool like Selenium
