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. Automated testing is the way forward. It is faster than manual testing, and you can easily rerun your tests at no extra cost. There are several challenges when writing automated tests for web applications: selecting an adequate test framework, using appropriate selectors to avoid flaky tests, and building a good testing framework. With this Course, you’ll learn how to use Selenium to efficiently test your own applications. This Course also walks you through these challenges and provides you with the knowledge to overcome hurdles in testing by developing stable and effective testing solutions. You will learn the complete process of automated testing, such as configuring your environment, creating and running automated tests, analyzing reports, and troubleshooting errors by using a Selenium Grid.

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

After completing this course, you will be able to:

    1. Get an overview of Software QA testing, Basics of Java Programming, Selenium Web Driver
    2. Identify what to automate in a project and configure the environment
    3. Learn to control browser behavior and manipulate web page elements
    4. Understand the nuances of writing tests and creating test suites
    5. Create UI tests with Selenium WebDriver and analyze test results
    6. Troubleshoot errors in automation and build out meaningful reporting

We’ll begin this Course by understanding the importance of software QA testing, automating tests, basics of Java programming, and Selenium Web Driver. We will learn how to choose good selectors for navigating through your web application while highlighting best practices and techniques.

After writing your first tests, you will go through the object model to help create your advanced test cases. You will learn how to analyze a test report, track timing errors, and separate real issues from “flaky” tests. You will also learn how to configure and connect to a local grid, a network grid, and a third-party service. By the end of the Course, you will have the skills you need to run automated tests on your own web application.

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 a growing market share of 18.1% of 3000 technology products that proves its 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.

Who is Target Audience for 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. This Course is designed for personnel who want to learn how to automate browser activity and web-based user interface tests with Selenium.

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
