The Test Modeller Explorer is an easy-to-use Chrome extension for analysing testing activity and accelerating the creation of accurate models of web UIs.

It provides two tools for quickly capturing the information on a web page needed to analyse existing tests and generate a rigorous set of automated tests and data in Test Modeller. The first is the Recorder, that captures actions and data executed against a page. This includes activity performed by manual testers or by existing automated tests, while any message or API traffic that results from these actions is further captured. The second is an object scanner that can be used to rapidly import and overlay automation logic onto a model in Test Modeller.

Both recorded activity and captured objects are captured as models that can be overlaid seamlessly onto logical models of the system under test in Test Modeller. This accelerates the definition of test data and automation logic at the model level. The goal is to then apply coverage algorithms to auto-generate and execute an up-to-date set of tests.

The Test Modeller Explorer further provides granular analysis of recorded test activity. This includes analysis of message and console interactions, UI heatmaps, a record of data entered, and visual models of the interactions. This allows you to understand exactly what has been tested and how, with a view to optimising future testing to cover the system under test as rigorously as possible.

This sub-section of the Knowledge Base focuses on capturing and analysing a web UI’s logic, as well as overlaying that logic onto models in Test Modeller. The Test Modeller sub-section of the Knowledge Base provides articles on creating models, generating test cases, and executing automated tests from models.
