Test Automation Introduction

As a career of software tester, we all need to know the basic understanding of software test automation. There are good numbers of tools (Selenium, Telerik Test Studio, Robotium, QTP, TestComplete) to do the automation and there are multiple language (Java, C-Sharp, Python, Ruby) support.

Here, I will go further with Selenium and the language is Java. Selenium is a software testing framework for web applications. There are multiple components (Selenium IDE, Selenium RC, Selenium WebDriver, Selenium Grid) of Selenium. First one, Selenium IDE which is implemented as a Firefox Add-On, and it allows recording, editing, and debugging tests. The work around of Selenium IDE is not vast. It is less maintained and is only compatible with Selenium RC, which is deprecated product right now.

Selenium WebDriver (Selenium 2.0) implemented as a successor of Selenium RC. It has browser-specific browser driver, which launch the browser, sends commands, and retrieves results from browser application. Selenium 2.0 is supported in Python, Ruby, Java, and C#. So, we can write code according to our familiar languages.

Happy Coding! :)
