Abstract

To manage the complexity of today's information systems, we need to investigate novel approaches for automated testing. In this paper we present two extensions to TESTAR, a state-of-the-art tool for testing systems through the GUI. We extend this tool with 1) a systematic and powerful approach for storing and querying test results through a graph database for offline oracles, and 2) support for accessibility evaluation of general applications for stakeholders with disabilities utilizing offline oracles. Furthermore, we conduct a preliminary validation of these extensions through a case study on the popular VLC Media Player.
