The Software Testing Automation Framework (STAF) is an open source, multi-platform, multi-language framework designed around the idea of reusable components, called services (such as process invocation, resource management, logging, and monitoring). STAF removes the tedium of building an automation infrastructure, thus enabling you to focus on building your automation solution.

"Automation is incomplete without Staf"

What do you like best?

As the title of my review says, 'Automation is incomplete without Staf'. Staf is a very integral part in automation. I like the following services in STAF

- Logging

- Easy setup

- Cross-platform support

- Cron services

- Email services

- Event Manager facility

- Timer feature

What do you dislike?

Not much. I don't have anything that I really complain about STAF.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Heavily depend on STAF for Automation. Have so many machines configured with STAF. It helps save so much of time. Helps a lot for testing a lot of features before pushing the code to production.
