Congratulations! This submission has made it into the top 3.

Screen name: Narayan
Title/Functional role: Developer
Company name: Sahi Software
Project title: Sahi
Time to complete : 4 years

Project details: Sahi is an automation tool to test web applications. Sahi injects javascript into web pages using a proxy and the javascript helps automate web applications. It is a tester friendly tool; it abstracts out most difficulties that testers face while automating web applications. Some salient features include multithreaded playback, platform and browser independence, no XPaths, no waits, excellent Java interaction and inbuilt reporting. It is an on-going project on SourceForge and I am the lead developer who designed and authored the product and still innovate and support it full time through my firm Sahi Software. Good expertise in Java network programming was needed to build a robust fast proxy and thorough knowledge of javascript and its quirks on different browsers was needed to develop the browser interaction code. With excellent support provided via forums and email, Sahi is fast picking up as a simple yet robust tool for web application testing.

    We are a licensed user of SAHI and is enthusiastic in implementing in all our projects beyond the pilot runs. Atleast two projects have started becoming critical and thumbs up to SAHI.

    The cost of ownership and time saved in execution are the biggest advantage of SAHI.
