Test automation process using RFT involves following three steps.1) Recording of Test Scripts: is done on the fly, as users navigate the application. Verificationpoints can be inserted to validate the system response. This makes test scripts data-driven toenable execution of the same script on variety of data inputs.2) Enhancing the Test Scripts: Enhancements like conditional branching, refactoring, andexception handling are done in test scripts to perform various additional functions..3) Playing Back the Scripts: Executing the scripts on the application under test to emulate allactions as already performed by the user during recording. Logging of the discrepancies anddrawing conclusion as to whether application functioned as desired or some regression isuesneed to be addressed.
