Selenium WebDriver — Selenium Documentation

Selenium WebDriver — Selenium Documentation
NOTE: We’re currently working on documenting these sections. We believe the information here is accurate, however be aware we are also still working on this chapter. Additional information will be provided as we go which should make this chapter more solid. Introducing WebDriver The primary new feature in Selenium 2.0 is the integration of the WebDriver API. WebDriver is designed to provide a simpler, more concise programming interface in addition to addressing some limitations in the Selenium-RC API. How Does WebDriver ‘Drive’ the Browser Compared to Selenium-RC? Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser’s native support for automation. For those familiar with Selenium-RC, this is quite different from what you are used to. WebDriver and the Selenium-Server You may, or may not, need the Selenium Server, depending on how you intend to use Selenium-WebDriver. There are some reasons though to use the Selenium-Server with Selenium-WebDriver. Java <? Python Ruby Perl

AndroidDriver - selenium - Browser automation framework Use Selendroid instead. Android WebDriver allows to run automated end-to-end tests that ensure your site works correctly when viewed from the Android browser. Android WebDriver supports all core WebDriver APIs, and in addition to that it supports mobile spacific and HTML5 APIs. Android WebDriver models many user interactions such as finger taps, flicks, finger scrolls and long presses. It can rotate the display and interact with HTML5 features such as local storage, session storage and application cache. We try to stay as close as possible to what the user interaction with the browser is. Running Selenium Headless Our dog food Pulse server, which spends all day building itself, is a headless box. This presented no challenge for the Pulse 1.x series of releases, as our builds are all scripted and don’t require any GUI tools. With Pulse 2.0, however, things changed.

FiddlerCore Api - Fiddler Programming against the FiddlerCore API is pretty simple. First, attach event handlers to the Fiddler.FiddlerApplication object to receive notification of HTTP(S) requests and responses, and any UI notifications you may want to pass along to the user or log file. Then, call Startup() to tell FiddlerCore to begin listening for requests. When you're done with FiddlerCore, call Shutdown().

Selenium Testing? Do Cross Browser Testing with Sauce Labs Sign up for a free account This page will show you some CSS rules and pseudo-classes that will help you move your XPATH locators to CSS, a native approach on all browsers. I: Simple Direct child A direct child in XPATH is defined by the use of a “/“, while on CSS, it’s defined using “>” Google Open Source Blog: Test Your Mobile Web Apps with WebDriver - A Tutorial Our first “by the numbers” post was about what countries this year’s accepted Google Summer of Code students are from - all 73 countries - which made for a big list. This time we’re serving up a mix of interesting stats in smaller charts. "How old are the students?" Google Summer of Code is for students ages 18 and older - but note the lack of an upper limit. While most of the students are relatively young, we also welcome non-traditional students to participate.

Agile Testing: Running Selenium WebDriver tests using Firefox headless mode on Ubuntu Selenium IDE is a very good tool for recording and troubleshooting Selenium tests, but you are limited to clicking around in a GUI. For a better testing workflow, including load testing, you need to use Selenium WebDriver, which can programatically drive a browser and run Selenium test cases. In its default mode, WebDriver will launch a browser and run the test scripts in the browser, then exit. If you like to work exclusively from the command line, then you need to look into running the browser in headless mode. WebDriver Abstract This specification defines the WebDriver API, a platform and language-neutral interface and associated wire protocol that allows programs or scripts to introspect into, and control the behaviour of, a web browser. The WebDriver API is primarily intended to allow developers to write tests that automate a browser from a separate controlling process, but may also be implemented in such a way as to allow in-browser scripts to control a — possibly separate — browser.

Joe Colantonio - Helping YOU Succeed with Test Automation Tools Ven Dor Tool Meets Sir Lenny Um Meet Ven Dor Tool. Ven Dor Tool is a test automation engineer whose tool of choice up until this point in his career has been QuickTest Professional. I’m sure we can all understand how freaked out Ven was when his company decided to stop using QTP and start using Selenium for their test automation efforts.
