    I vote for Script over Scriptless because I think Automation is still more about software development than software testing. It means that we still need a decent level of the followings:

    *Define objectives
    *Design framework
    *Coding/Debugging
    *Maintenance

    While I observe that automation tools these days are designed so that user with less to no programming skills can use it, I still think that to have a strong automation test, we still need a strong programming skill.

    Looking forward to ideas from automation experts out there :-)
