Manual regression testing of graphical user interfaces is a time consuming task that a family of tools known as capture/replay tools seeks to automate. This paper presents a case study that compares the costs and benefits of a state of the art capture/replay tool (Rational Functional Tester) to the costs and benefits of manual regression testing. Our findings suggest that, for projects with infrequent product releases, manual regression testing of graphical user interfaces is more cost effective than testing with capture/replay tools.
