I actually use sikuli currently, via some networked bindings I've developed for robotframework (server, client)

comment What are the things to care for while choosing an automation testing tool?
I would put extensibility higher up, as it allows you to add any of the higher features if they're missing, but otherwise I would say this matched my list perfectly

comment Tools for tracking automated tests
@rishimaharaj indeed this was my question - what tools are there that do this, and only if there is nothing suitable, tips on rolling my own.

@Dez these are valuable points - not applicable for me current situation, as this is already mitigated, however I think it would be useful to add this as either a comment on the question, where it is more likely to receive attention, or as an answer if you could flesh it out a little more - I know you'd get an up-vote from me ;)

The software in question in a flash application, where it would not be difficult to insert the odd non-fatal stack trace, or a few out of alignment resources and off-by-one counts - similar to the sort of bugs that are common.

The project goal of this would be to determine whether we were getting enough out of our outsourcing that it was justified as a cheaper and more flexible option than hiring more internal resource. The developers may well have the attitude that they're trying to trip up the outsourced testers, however the same process would be used by internally QA'd projects, and testers are often not assigned until the work is ready for test (there will be both internal and external commitment on the project).

Evidence of missed bugs - yes, however there were only two bugs which were know. Both were however missed - it is my thinking that while this looks bad, it doesn't really mean anything - systematically injecting bugs to a the codebase would give a more accurate view of how the land lies, and if it's somewhere near as bad as it looks, give a chance for improvement.

So is your point that metrics in general are bad, or that there is we'd need more metrics, in which case, what would best complement this technique to garner the information we need? The issue in question is that there is a low confidence in the work our counterparts outside the company have been doing, but management insist that it is more effective than spending the same money on increasing the headcount internally. Without some sort of metric the situation will stay the same, whereas I hope that either confidence can increase, or we can justify switching to more expensive internal resources

Not as sophisticated as in they are more sensitive to change, or not as sophisticated as in there are less features for working with them?

You say it is not as powerful - what are the pros and cons? For me jython would be a huge pro over sensetalk, as I am a python journeyman, and our stack is mainly JVM on the backend.

Could we please get an eggplant tag, and possibly one for sensetalk?
