    Selenium to test Stand Alone applications

    Hi Friends,

    I work on a product that runs as a Stand Alone application and we are trying to see if we can use Selenium to automate our product. But after going through the Selenium website and referring to other forums i have understood that Selenium supports automation of ONLY Web applications. So my specific question is -

    = > Is it possible to test Stand Alone applications using Selenium ? If so, can you please point me to the appropriate references ?

    Thanks,
    Pravin

    Re: Selenium to test Stand Alone applications

    Selenium works by using JavaScript to collect elements from a page in order to work through a script, if your Stand Along application doesn't work in that framework then try some of the other automation tools like WinTask, AutoIt or other Functional Test Tools.

    Why the focus on Selenium?

    Selenium is a browser automation framework.

    no browser == no dice.
