Selenium testing tool
I working in consulting company and they want evaluation selenium for web testing. Where can I download selenium? Any suggestion .......? Thanks in advance.
Don't think of selenium as a tool, think of it as a programming project.
Most people will think, I'll just download Selenium, then go here, Selenium - Web Browser Automation, and download Selenium IDE.
Later they'll realize, that Selenium IDE will be discontinued in the near future and isn't really that powerful. When most people are talking about selenium, they're talking about Webdriver. Webdriver isn't a simple record and playback tool, but a programming interface.
Then the 2nd mistake people do is download the .jar file and create a simple Java project. A few months down the line when other people join the team they have headaches figuring out dependency management. So while there is a Selenium download link, you'll want to use a proper dependency manager from the start. So Java you'll want to go through Maven, Python you'd go through PIP, Ruby you'd go through Gems.
Agreed with dlai. Whatever you selected to start automated testing, you must select the dependency carefully and firstly. Choose the language you liked, choose its dependency.
