Covering all the possible paths of the GUI with test scripts would take too much effort and result in serious maintenance issues. We propose complementing scripted testing with scriptless test automation using the open source TESTAR tool. This paper gives a comprehensive overview of TESTAR and its latest extensions together with the ongoing and future research. With this paper we hope we can help and encourage other researchers to use TESTAR for their GUI testing related research and pave the way for an international research agenda in GUI testing built upon stable and open source infrastructure.
