@dzieciou Right, I'm aware of this, as indicated by my comment to the answer of Dmitry Zhariy. I will try to refine it, but unfortunately I don't have the time right now. A quick shot at it: One use case I think of is definitely the generation of unit tests for legacy code (in my case: PL/SQL and Java), on the other hand im interested in the state of the art of model based/spec based test script generation: have you used it, did it pay off. Maybe one should separate it in (at least :-)) two questions? Or are survey questions not feasible for this Q&A format?

@dzieciou Thanks for your pointer to stackoverflow and Agitar. Guess I should also look what's over there :-)

@dzieciou I don't want to touch on test data generation with this question. I consider test data generation as a different step. When I said script templates, that's what I had in mind: the test data will be provided by a different process to fill the holes.

I'm afraid, I'm actually looking for too many different things simultaneously. I will have to rethink my question and amend it. Anyway, thank you for your answer so far. Model-based testing was certainly one of the things I had in mind. And ATDD/BDD was new to me, though I also thought of something in the line of Specification by Example. I have to do a little read up here.

Ok, maybe "existence" of a tool is not really enough, and the scope of my question is a little too broad. I will have to edit it to be a little more specific. I especially would like to know about tools that you use on a regular basis or did succesfully use at least once, preferably non-homebrew ;-).

@dzieciou Definitely for automated tests. Is there a more unambiguous term than test scripts in this context?
