Open Source

Useful and straightforward. Appian and other low-code BCM tools can be easily integrated. Writing a script for a test is similar to writing a script in English. So simple to use because it's a wrapper class for selenium. FitNesse is being implemented with the goal of doing it correctly the first time. As a result, migrations of both the client and the server are made easier.

Free trial version is fine but you don't get the adequate support and VFM for the licensed version. Customer service needs to be improved a lot and any QA's with less technical background or less time to troubleshoot issues in the software on their own would find it difficult to use.

Cons

Open Source

  • Logging can help any debug or error issues.
  • A Java/Selenium developer is needed to maintain the FitNesse keyword library.
  • Content.txt and properties.txted need to be added to the test suite in older versions to make it visible in a test run.

Katalon Inc

  • Katalon Studio supports only grovvy language for now. It will be nice to see support for other scripting languages.
  • Performance issues; sudden crash of the tool.
  • Debug button is provided only to licensed owner since Katalon 7+ version.
  • New tool, few resources available to learn. So there is a mild learning curve here.

    Due to the slowness, there is an intermediate timeout. There is no other problem.

    The FitNesse testing automation framework is very simple to operate. It is simple to connect with the Jenkins and Bamboo environments. It is dependable, and it is simple and quick to include new tests. The process of debugging and fixing test failures is straightforward. FitNesse, including its installation, may be utilized with a minimum of fuss and difficulty. Maintaining scripts and monitoring their output is designed to be a relatively straightforward process.

    Katalon Studio is above both the tools is due to its codeless test automation feature and having API, desktop, web, and mobile automation in one place but obviously there is room for improvement when desktop automation is of primary importance in the automation.
