WAAT (Web Analytics Automation Testing Framework) is alive!!!

[UPDATE]  Check related post here (http://essenceoftesting.blogspot.com/2011/04/waat-web-analytics-automation-testing.html)

I am very happy to announce that the first release of WAAT is available for general use.

WAAT is hosted on github (https://github.com/anandbagmar/WAAT)

WAAT v1.3 can be used to test *almost any type of Web Analytic solution. Tested with Google Analytics and Omniture. This is platform dependent.

You can either get the code base from git@github.com:anandbagmar/WAAT.git, or, get the binaries available in the dist folder.

Documentation for using WAAT is available in various different formats:
> WAAT Readme.docx
> WAAT Readme.doc
> WAAT Readme.pdf
> WAAT Readme.html

These files are available in the docs folder.

The documentation is also part of the binary file downloads.

I am looking forward for your usage and comments to make this better and more usable.


  1. Excellent pieces. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog. I really impressed by your blog.

  2. Thank you :). Glad you find it useful. There is also a Ruby version available. See here for more information: http://essenceoftesting.blogspot.com/2011/07/waat-ruby-available-on-rubygems-and.html

  3. I'm a newbie for reports gen. and GA tagging and i don't have idea how to track these. I've read your manual docs (WAAT Readme.doc) and one of the requirement is to download the Import relevant packages (specifically the WebDriverScriptRunner) since i've been using Webdriver in Java. I'm confused where I can download the these packages to try this WAAT tools?

  4. Hi,
    The WebDriverScriptRunner is available in the following location:

    Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.



  5. Excellent framework Anand. It has helped me to get started with automating the omniture calls of my product. Since long, I was thinking how to get started with it. Also its easy to understand since its in Java. Since you have provided 2 versions - Omniture Debugger and HttpSniffer, it gives users the freedom to use whichever fits well for their product.
    I would certainly suggest others to give it a try as you would find it very useful.

    Thanks a lot and looking forward for more such updates.
