Code maintainability is an important enabler for agile software development. Working with legacy code is challenging because its maintainability suffers from high coupling and lack of unit tests. By introducing automated functional testing, we can create a safety net that will detect any breaking changes to existing functionality. This allows developers to be more confident. We will demonstrate a test framework that allows us to specify application behaviour by programmatically interacting with the user interface of a web application.
