A pervasive method for GUI testing is the Capture and Playback (CP) technique. This commonly used technique cannot be used until an Application Under Test (AUT) is completely developed. In this paper, the authors propose a specification driven approach to test GUI-Based java programs as an alternative to the CP technique. They introduce a GUI-event test specification language based on Java Script from which an automated test engine is generated. The esteem of Java as a scripting language is its ease of use and its standard format that have made writing a test script using their proposed specification language makes it an easy task.
