Title: METHOD, APPARATUS AND SYSTEM FOR TASK AUTOMATION OF COMPUTER OPERATIONS BASED ON UI CONTROL AND IMAGE/TEXT RECOGNITION
Abstract:
A system comprising a first computing apparatus being an automation controller (900, 120) and a second computing apparatus being a system to be tested (900, 130), said automation controller comprising a processor arrangement (910) and an interface (930). The processor arrangement (910) of the automation controller is configured to transmit case logic to said system to be tested (130) through the interface (930) and to receive a test report from said system to be tested (130), wherein the case logic comprises software code for a complete automated case to be performed by the system to be tested (130), and said system to be tested comprises a processor arrangement (910) and an interface (930). The processor arrangement (910) of the system to be tested (130) is configured to: receive the case logic; execute the case logic by: executing associated functionality as specified by the case logic; generating a screen capture; cause image analysis to be performed on the screen capture; matching results of said image analysis to the associated functionality; generate said test report; and transmit said test report to said automation controller (120).
