Today, user-driven web-based interfaces have become the norm because customers demand highly dynamic, interactive, customizable, and even predictive data. Unfortunately, from a quality assurance standpoint, modern UIs present complex testing challenges. Backend services are consistent but the UI presenting the information can change more easily, making the data more accessible to the end user, or multiple UIs are created for responsive web so the application renders based on the platform, phone, tablet, or computer. To help clients overcome these challenges, Worksoft has developed an Extensibility Framework that can be used to tailor object recognition to any web-based UI.
The Extensibility Framework uses AI and machine learning to identify how an application generates user interfaces and tailors object recognition based on those patterns. Worksoft was granted a patent for this unique object recognition technology and extensibility to define objects. Once an Extensibility Framework is developed for an application, it is then added to the Worksoft community for consumption by any current Certify client. Extensibility Frameworks are built to follow the applications they support. As new versions for an application are rolled out, the supporting Extensibility Framework is also updated.
