|The goal behind AFTER was to remove a lot of the tedious and repetitive coding that goes along with
functional UI testing. Up until now functional UI testing has continuously been solved with the use of record and playback scripts. Although there
are times when such a thing might be a good idea, such as exploratory testing, overall record and playback is very repetitive and verbose. As is the
case Often times hundreds of lines of code are duplicated for each script. Then when changes are needed for parts of the application, as we know they
always are, you are left with two choices, open all the scripts and try to do a find and replace or rerecord the scripts. So with AFTER you can solve
that by writing scripts that are component based. Then you can build larger scripts by loading several components into one script. Giving you flexible
and easily configurable test scripts.
