Context: 2 nd generation (Layout-based) and 3 rd generation (Visual) GUI testing are two approaches for testing mobile GUIs, both with individual benefits and drawbacks. Previous research has presented approaches to translate 2 nd generation scripts to 3 rd generation scripts but not the vice versa. Goal: The objective of this work is to provide Proof of Concept of the effectiveness of automatic translation between existing 3 rd generation test scripts to 2 nd generation test scripts. Method: A tool architecture is presented and implemented in a tool capable of translating most 3 rd generation interactions with the GUI of an Android app into 2 nd generation instructions and oracles for the Espresso testing tool.Results: We validate our approach on two test suites of our own creation, consisting of 30 test cases each. The measured success rate of the translation is 96.7% (58 working test cases out of 60 applications of the translator). Conclusion: The study provides support for the feasibility of a translation-based approach from 3 rd to 2 nd generation test cases. However, additional work is needed to make the approach applicable in real-world scenarios or larger open-source test suites.
