Expect to see more open-source testing frameworks in JavaScript land, more artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities embedded in the tools you use and more innovation coming from commercial tool vendors. Another continuing trend is a combination of functional testing with performance testing — (think of it as Selenium combined with your Jmeter tests). Also, expect to see lots of new development in Behavior Driven Development (BDD Testing), and how it is adopted in an Agile organization. Automatic test scenario generation is another area which we are working on with several of our clients.
