Product Description

Build a powerful, stable, and automated test suite using Selenium WebDriver

About This Book

  • Keep up with the changing pace of your web application by creating an agile test suite
  • Save time and money by making your Selenium tests 99% reliable
  • Improve the stability of your test suite and your programing skills by following a step-by-step continuous improvement tutorial

Who This Book Is For

Whether you are an experienced WebDriver developer or someone who was newly assigned a task to create automated tests, this book is for you. Since the ideas and concepts are described in simple terms, no previous experience in computer coding or programming is required.

What You Will Learn

  • Control Selenium WebDriver within any major programing language such as Java, Ruby, Python, and .NET

  • Learn how to implement a simple test script or a complex Page Objects framework

  • Set up each test to automatically deal with AJAX and jQuery

  • Remove test instabilities by blocking third-party services

  • Deal with data uncertainties by using fixtures, JSON APIs, and API stubbing

  • Improve your test suite continuously by refactoring code and using the DRY principle

  • Stabilize your tests by using patterns such as the Action Wrapper and Black Hole Proxy patterns

In Detail

Selenium WebDriver is a global leader in automated web testing. It empowers users to perform complex testing scenarios with its simple and powerful interface.

This guide will provide you with all the skills you need to successfully create a functional Selenium test suite. Starting from the very beginning of the Selenium IDE, this book will show you how to transition into a real programing language such as Ruby or Java. You will quickly learn how to improve your code quality with refactoring and the skills needed to plan for the future development of your website to future-proof your test suite. With ample test examples running against a life-like e-commerce store and detailed step-by-step code review and explanations, you will be ready to test any challenge web developers might throw your way.

This book is intended for anyone who wants to create a test suite that is easy to maintain by expanding your knowledge until you feel truly confident and comfortable with Selenium.

About the Author

Dima Kovalenko started his career in 2003 as a quality assurance intern during his summer internship at Rosetta Stone. Since then, he has spent many years testing software in both a manual and automated fashion in companies such as ThoughtWorks, Groupon, and many others. He has participated in many different types of projects, including language-learning software, web e-commerce stores, and legacy maintenance for telecommunication and airline companies. His experience includes support to Ruby, Java, iOS, Android, and PHP projects as an automated tester and software developer.
