Gepard is a JUnit based test automation framework for Test Automation Engineers and for Software Engineers in Test, those can focus on writing the test cases instead of focusing on how to do data driven things, how to deal with parallel test executions, how to deal with end-user readable test reports etc.

What Gepard stands for:

  • Core module of a Java/JUnit based test automation framework ( gepard-core ). Provides common approach for test automation engineers to use same framework from low level (class level) unit tests through service level tests up to and including UI/Functional tests. It provides common and reliable multi-threaded, multi-dimensional data driven test execution and reporting mechanism to build automated tests on it. Test Automation Experts can focus on test implementation, meanwhile all other work (data driven execution, proper scheduling and reporting) is done by this core module of the framework. Easily expandable (like for Selenium, Android native application test).
