AutomationScriptEngine is a XML-based DSL that allows developers write scripts to automate existing Win32 applications.
Automation script is a custom DSL developed for automating Windows-based applications, even for creating fully automated tests. It’s XML-based. It’s not bound to CCF (now USD), hence it can be used from any other .NET application. It’s composed by a series of steps, which may (or not) contain some pre-requisites that must be met in order to proceed to the next step. Its main purpose is to provide a starting point for creating automation-based solutions, without forcing the developers to spend time working on the Win32 plumbing, but helping them to focus on the business requirements.
