I have been trying to choose among the plethora of testing frameworks that are available in the market. Are there any features based on which I can narrow down my list?

There are way too many and it's difficult to choose though I have my requirements. Here are some things that you can consider, that might help you out:

  • Modular: The framework should be adaptable to change.
  • Reusable – The commonly used methods or utilities should be kept in a common file which is easily accessible to all the scripts.
  • Consistent – The test suite should be written in a consistent format by following the coding practices.
  • Independent – The test scripts should be written in such a way that they are independent of each other.
  • Logging – It is good to have implemented the logging feature in the framework.
  • Reporting – Once the scripting is done, we can have the results and reports sent via email.
  • Integration – Automation framework should be such that it is easy to integrate with other applications
