A Framework defines a set of guidelines that enforces a set of standards which makes it easy to use for the end users to work with. There are different types of automation frameworks and the most common ones are listed below:

  1. Keyword-Driven Framework
  2. Data-Driven Framework
  3. Hybrid Framework

Keyword-Driven Framework

Keyword driven testing is a type of functional automation testing framework which also known as table-driven testing or action word based testing.

In Keyword-driven testing we use a table format, usually a spreadsheet, to define keywords or action words for each function that we would like to execute.

Data Driven Framework

Data-driven testing is creation of test scripts where test data and/or output values are read from data files instead of using the same hard-coded values each time the test runs. This way testers can test how the application handles various inputs effectively. It can be any of the below data files.

  1. datapools
  2. Excel files
  3. ADO objects
  4. CSV files
  5. ODBC sources

Hybrid Framework

Hybrid Framework is a combination of Keyword driven and data Driven framework
