XPath is the key to stable tests
Almost no UI autotest is complete without locators (XPath). That is why it is essential to compose concise and correct XPaths to help the tests work steadily. Furthermore, only a well-composed XPath can help you quickly determine what caused the autotest to fail. Then the regression will be much faster, smoother and, most importantly, more efficient.
The talk will include theory, live coding and best practices of the OK automated testing team. We maintain 2368 and 745 autotests on the web and mobile platforms, which account for roughly 4% and 3% crashes, respectively.
