Test Automation for Web Applications using Selenium Webdriver
Testing plays an important role in development
of an application.There are many advantages to test automation. Most are
related to the repeatability of the tests and the speed at which the
tests can be executed. There are a number of commercial and open source
tools available for assisting with the development of test
automation.Selenium Webdriver is used for testing to automate
application to check its behavior before final release. We can use JUnit
,TesNG to make application reliable.It let the developer to know that
application is ready to launch or not.
Bug free environment
It is our one of the main motive that we should develop a bug free
application,so we use latest testing technique to test our application
before final release.we used unit, regression and selenium testing on
every module of the application before launch..
Selenium is a set of different software tools each with a different approach
to supporting test automation. Most Selenium QA Engineers focus on the one
or two tools that most meet the needs of their project, however learning all
the tools will give you many different options for approaching different
test automation problems.
The entire suite of tools results in a rich set of
testing functions specifically geared to the needs of testing of web
applications of all types. These operations are highly flexible, allowing many options for
locating UI elements and comparing expected test results against actual
application behavior. One of Selenium’s key features is the support for executing one’s tests on
multiple browser platforms.
To Automate or Not to Automate?
Is automation always advantageous? When should one decide to automate test cases?It
is not always advantageous to automate test cases. There are times when
manual testing may be more appropriate. For instance, if the
application’s user interface will change considerably in the near
future, then any automation might need to be rewritten anyway. Also,
sometimes there simply is not enough time to build test automation. For
the short term, manual testing may be more effective. If an application
has a very tight deadline, there is currently no test automation
available, and it’s imperative that the testing get done within that
time frame, then manual testing is the best solution.
