Every automation tool just provides a way to navigate >> identify >> perform >> repeat. So before moving further on our Selenium series, let’s look at the most common Page elements & User actions to automate.
How does automation script identify different elements on an application page? We call it Element Locators in Selenium Webdriver – The Eyes (Senses)!
What do you think should be the first script in our journey to learn Selenium Automation testing? Yeah! For any web-based testing, first & foremost you need to launch a browser and open the application URL. How? Let’s learn how to launch Chrome browser using Selenium Webdriver!
Let’s learn how a webpage is rendered in a browser OR the HTML coding basics OR how can Selenium identify the elements on a webpage, uniquely!
Encountering a gecko driver error as you start scripting for Mozilla Firefox using the latest Selenium 3.0.0 Beta release? Know what has changed now!
Now that you have downloaded Java, Eclipse and Selenium Webdriver – let’s see how to configure Eclipse with Selenium WebDriver.
Selenium supports multiple languages, by using language-specific client driver. Since we will be using Java, let’s download WebDriver Java Client.
Eclipse is the most widely used Java IDE in the programming world. It contains a base workspace and an extensible plug-in system for customizing the environment. Eclipse itself is written mostly in Java and its primary use is for developing Java applications, but it may also be used to develop applications in other programming languages through the use of plugins. Continuing on our zeal to learn automation via Selenium, let’s learn how to download and start Eclipse IDE.
The biggest name in ‘Software Testing’ now-a-days, or at least from few years – Selenium. What’s Selenium? The Android of Web Automation! And what makes it so popular? Yeah! Its open source, but – though free it still need to be useful to gain popularity of such momentum. What makes it so appealing? So useful? Appropriate? Easy-to-use? Powerful? The answer is – Selenium WebDriver!
The first step for any aspiring Selenium enthusiast is to understand Selenium IDE. Why? Simple! Since many of us don’t know programming and it’s the easiest way to get started…
We are talking about the dream of building a successful career in Automation Testing, about the dream of being able to understand and master at least one Automation tool in international market. And for those of you who are dreaming on similar lines or are looking forward to it, would be excited to know that the dream of Automation Testing is free!!!
