Who should attend this course?

If want to kick-start your career in the IT field or you want to grow from being a manual tester to becoming an automation tester. Either way, you are at the right place because YOU need to learn Selenium. Selenium is an open source tool, which means anybody can use it for free. Any organization can use Selenium to test their website or web application and even independent programmers can learn and practice automation testing using Selenium WebDriver. The problem with other testing tools are that, they are either licensed tools, or their functionality is not as good as Selenium. HP’s QTP, IBM’s RFT, TestComplete, Ranorex are all proprietary (licensed) tools.Feature-wise, Selenium is the clear winner when compared to the others, no second thoughts! For designing test cases in Selenium, you have the flexibility to design it either via programming logic or by record and playback approach. If you do not have the technical knowledge to script WebDriver code, you can use IDE to record your tests and export the programming logic to an equivalent programming language of your choice. Selenium WebDriver can be used to write your logic using programming languages (which happens most of the time) or you can use Selenium IDE to record your tests and export it later into a programming language of your choice to execute as a WebDriver test.

  • Software Testing and QA would be beneficial but not mandatory.
  • Basic programming skills
    1. Gain knowledge to describe the purpose of Selenium and understand the proper approach to test automation.
    2. Understand to record, play back automated test cases, to configure hub, node, and run scripts on remote computer.
    3. Develop and work with test suites, schedule automatic test runs and utilize different Selenium script formats.
    4. Get insight on execution of scenarios, various element locators (ID, Name, XPATH, CSS, DOM), and locator strategies.
    5. Configure custom log files, create a custom object map, and reusable modules to reduce script maintenance.
    • Most innovative companies such as SauceLabs, BrowserStack, Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe, Google have built products based on Selenium to offer more value to clients, thus there is a huge demand for Selenium testing professionals in the job market.
    • Out of the best scanning and sleuthing software testing tools, Selenium has growing market share of 18.1% of 3000 technology products that proves it’s sustainability in the market.
    • A Selenium Testing professional with Selenese, test-domain specific language knowledge can write tests in a number of popular programming languages such as Java, C#, Groovy, Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby.

    What does a Software Tester do?

    The role of a software tester can vary depending on project requirements. They may join a project at the initial implementation stages to assess potential risks, or be brought on to a project midway through, when testing becomes a key requirement. The following are some of the important tasks will be performed a by Software Tester namely:

    • Meeting with system users to understand the scope of projects
    • Working with software developers and project support teams
    • Identifying business requirements
    • Project planning
    • Monitoring applications and software systems
    • Writing and executing test scripts
    • Running manual and automated tests in different environments including web and mobile
    • Writing bug reports
    • Resource planning
    • Reviewing documentation

    What is Selenium?

    Selenium is a suite of tools designed specifically for automating web browsers. It is used by many major online enterprises like Facebook® and Google for testing their web user interfaces. Selenium supports different operating systems, programming languages and browsers, that helps Selenium to stay ahead in Automation testing realm. During this training, trainees will master in four different components of Selenium such as Selenium IDE, Selenium RC, Selenium WebDriver and Selenium Grid and also gain knowledge on how to perform tests on multiple machines simultaneously running on different operating systems by integrating with other frameworks like JUnit and TestNG.

    Why Selenium?

    Selenium is globally rated as a top priority in the test automation field: It scaled up from last year’s 29% to 36%, meaning that as a test automation engineer, one should master Selenium!

    who should learn selenium Web Driver?

    Selenium is an open source tool, which means anybody can use it for free. Any organization can use Selenium to test their website or web application and even independent programmers can learn and practice automation testing using Selenium WebDriver.

    Is selenium enough to get you a job?

    In the current Software Industry, Testing cost is crucial factor for any project. This is the reason why organizations have started using the open source Test Automation tool. You also most likely agree that Selenium Testing tool is now the leading technology in the test Automation Programming and where it is transforming software development. It is an open source Tool that is supported by large volunteers of open source developers. Even more and more companies are adopting Selenium over other Software Testing Tools.

    What is Difference between Selenium IDE and Webdriver?

    Selenium IDE: Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment to create and execute Selenium Test cases. It is a Firefox extension, and allows us to record, edit, and debug test cases.

    Selenium WebDriver: WebDriver is used to create Test cases that run on various browsers, using element locators and WebDriver API commands we can create Test cases.

    • We can enhance Test cases using Programming features and Testing Framework Annotations.
    • WebDriver was designed to provide a simpler, more concise programming interface in addition to addressing some limitations in the Selenium-RC API.
    • Selenium-WebDriver was developed to better support dynamic web pages where elements of a page may change without the page itself being reloaded.

    Difference between Selenium IDE and WebDriver:

    Selenium IDE:

    • It only works in Mozilla browser.
    • It supports Record and playback.
    • Doesn’t required to start server before executing the test script.
    • It is a GUI Plug-in, It is not object oriented
    • Core engine is Javascript based
    • It does not support listeners
    • It does not support to test iphone/Android applications

    Selenium WebDriver:

    • It supports with all browsers like Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera etc.
    • It doesn’t support Record and playback
    • Doesn’t required to start server before executing the test script.
    • It’s actual core API which has binding in a range of languages.
    • API’s are entirely Object oriented
    • It supports the implementation of listeners
    • It supports to test iphone/Android applications
