Abstract: The most significant segments of software development is software testing. Automated software testing is an effective testing process that reduces the effort and cost of manual testing. However, it is difficult to select a suitable software testing tool from the huge list of freely available tools. The main contribution of this work is to conduct a comparative study of three readily available automated software testing tools such as QTP, Silk4j and Load Runner. The selected tools are evaluated and compared on the basis of their usability, maintenance and effectiveness. For this purpose we have taken an existing JAVA based applications to perform automated testing on these three tools. The results will assist testers to effectively select the best automated software testing tool for related applications.
