Youngest but powerful member of automation testing family

// Senior QA Engineer - Automation Testing at Cótica Engenharia e Construções

What do you like about Katalon Studio?

+ No cost. So it's really valuable for company that don't have much budget.
+ Technology: It is built on top of Selenium — the automation framework that is currently backed by top web browser developers (Google, Microsoft, Apple, Mozilla)
+ Installation: Easy to install. I use Windows, so I just download a ZIP file and extract.
+ Recording: Since Selenium IDE is no longer support for Firefox 55+, Katalon Studio comes with its own add-ons for Chrome, Firefox, and even Internet Explorer.

What do you dislike about Katalon Studio?

- Not big community: As a newbie in Automation testing, Katalon didn't have a big user community comparing other tools like Selenium or Robot Framework.
- Support process is sometimes slow. I hope to receive a faster support from their technical team.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Katalon Studio solve?

Katalon Studio was the selected contestant to resolve our automation challenges. Without Katalon, we couldn’t achieve our target to create automated test scripts in one year.
Katalon Studio helps us save time of creating automated test scripts and we can analyze the result on the cloud with Katalon Analytics.

Katalon Studio is a nice approach to automation testing

// Senior Software Engineer at KMS Technology, Inc.

After using a lot automation tools, I finally found Katalon Studio as the perfect solution for my automation testing requirements.
As a developer, I love that Katalon Studio provide the Eclipse-like UI that is familiar and feels comfortable to me.
Setup is a breeze as I can execute test cases in minutes after downloading Katalon Studio completed.
Creating and managing test artifacts with Katalon Studio feels so easy and fast. Using the Object Spy and Recorder function reduce my time-consuming tasks of creating web elements and test case skeletons remarkably.
I just wish that Katalon Studio would provide me with a Linux version as it is one of my preferred development environment.

Good tool for those not having experiences in automation test


Those who do not have many experiences in automation test should download Katalon Studio. Having tried for more than 1 month and here are my objective opinions.
Upsides:
+ Simple installation and easy to set up the environment
+ Record & Playback functions are quite good so I can quickly create new test cases.
+ I also try to test my REST web service by Katalon Studio and I think it works perfectly, helps me a lot
Downsides:
+ Documentations are not very clear and hard to find the solutions for my problems
+ The size of the application is somehow quite big.
+ Still slow when running a lot of test cases.

It is still a new tool and I hope Katalon Studio will get better in the future. I will recommend it to my colleagues

Useful automation testing tool


Free tool with friendly user interface and easy to use. Have both manual and script mode. Web record function works well on most website (I use it with Chrome and IE).
Not very supportive documentation, take time to read and explore. Mobile testing takes time to capture and write code.
Most of project I have been been through are not too big to make full use of this automation tool. However, I think it would be very useful for big project which need a large QA team. The idea is not really new but has good prospects.
