    Re: Selenium

    It is a web test tool
    It drives the browser via Javascript
    It is therefore browser independent
    It has APIs for different programm languages
    It uses the apache 2.0 license

    Re: Selenium

    Selenium is an open source tool. This means that there is no vendor cost associated with installing and using the tool. It is governed under the above mentioned licensing agreement.
    Selenuim is a very good approach to automated testing. The only downside is that to record scripts it must be in FireFox. If your application is quircky in FireFox, it may require some refinement of your application for Selenium to be useful.
    Some nice features is the ability to create tests in Visual Studio 2005/C#. Using the record feature, the recordings can automatically be converted to C# (one of many languages) and copied into VS2K5. The resulting script includes all the required namespaces, including nUnit. Upon compiling into a dll, the script can be run in ThoughtWork's nUnit executor which is very quick. You must set up your code to execute against IE, which is quick modification. There needs to be an addin uploaded to your test server, or a localhost proxy server started, all provided by Selenium.
    This is my first foray into OpenSource automated testing tools, and I must admit the Selenium did a lot of things right. Some of the others I tried left a little to be desired (I won't name them so no war of words starts). It still needs to have some features added, such as a real results log and a dedicated UI mapping feature, but I have already built those myself, so no problem.

    Re: Selenium

    Selenium: Open Source Tools

    Selenium is a test tool for web applications. Selenium tests run directly in a browser, just as real users do. And they run in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh. No other test tool covers such a wide array of platforms.

    Browser compatibility testing. Test your application to see if it works correctly on different browsers and operating systems. The same script can run on any Selenium platform.
    System functional testing. Create regression tests to verify application functionality and user acceptance.

    It currently support writing tests in Java, .NET, Perl, Python and Ruby

    How does Selenium Work?

    Selenium uses JavaScript and Iframes to embed a test automation engine in your browser. This technique should work with any JavaScript-enabled browser. Because different browsers handle JavaScript somewhat differently, we usually have to tweak the engine to support a wide range of browsers on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

    Platform and Browser Compatibility

    Supported Platforms:
    Windows:
    o Internet Explorer 6.0
    o Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
    o Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
    o Seamonkey 1.0
    o Opera 8

    Mac OS X:
    o Safari 1.3+
    o Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
    o Camino 1.0a1
    o Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
    o Seamonkey 1.0

    Linux:
    o Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
    o Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
    o Konqueror

    Re: Selenium

    HI All
    Lots of information about selenium. For UI and functional testing which is the best? I mean which flavour. IDE, RC, Core or Rails. I already installed IDE but i really dont know is there any option of identifying objects in selenium.
    Also i can see IDE option in firfox and not in IE. How to bring the IDE option in IE? Any ideas and suggestions.
    Cheers,
    Ram

    Re: Selenium

    Hi,
    Most of your questions can be answered by reading the Selenium documentation and information on the OpenSource website.
    Here is a summary:
    Which is the best flavor - it really depends on what you want. I prefer to record if I need to in the IDE, convert it to C# and add the lines of code to the nUnit suite. I then use RC to execute the tests

    There is no option to 'identify' objects. I am in the process of creating my own solution, but that solution is intended to function only from C#.

    Selenium IDE is only available as an add-in for FireFox. You can take the scripts you record in FireFox and replay them against IE however.

    Re: Selenium

    If you want some solution like QTP/WinRunner/Silk etc to find objects its not there. I have found using XPath very helpful. I have installed XPath viewer add-on in Mozilla and using it along with the Selenium IDE to identify objects and making my automation robust. For usage, even I follow the same thing i.e. record it using Selenium IDE , export test cases as Perl and execute it using Selenium RC. What scripting language you use is up to you we use perl because of our familiarity and availability of tons of modules in CPAN,
