Overview of Siebel Open UI Keyword Automation Testing

Siebel Open UI keyword automation testing is based on the Keyword Driven Framework. The Keyword Driven Framework is an automation testing framework which uses action words for testing.

The four main parts to each keyword automation step are:

  1. Action to perform (Keyword)
  2. Object to act upon
  3. Input data
  4. Choice of closing action.

A test case or script is made up of a set of sequenced test steps as shown, for example, in the following table.
