What good is a line-by-line code walk-through, if you can’t execute and see the output? So without any more fuss, let’s run our code!!
Hiya everyone! Time to grab a cup of Java, I mean coffee ;)
Without further ado, let’s get started with our first test script in WebDriver. Under the same project that we created from our previous post (where WebDriver JAR files are added), I have created a new package named, ‘com.blog.tests’.
Welcome to our first explore-along post of WebDriver series. It is recommended that you follow closely and work along to make the set up process all the more simple!
- Have an active internet connection.
- Download and install Java SE Development Kit (JDK) on your system. (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html)
- Download Eclipse IDE. Installation isn’t required. Just extract all the contents to a folder and double click on the executable file. (http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/)
The path to learning WebDriver is interesting and often mind-bending one, so get ready… We are going to encounter some wonderful, wild and wacky things as we trek in the land of Southern Surprises.
You are about to find out why Selenium WebDriver is going to make your life so much better – well, in a QA sense and why we are calling it, The Ruling Champ! In order to get a grip on the tool and build a test automation framework, it is really important to get a deeper understanding of what we are dealing with. So, what are we waiting for? Let us get a good foundation started, now!
Hiya friends! Hope you had a great time learning Selenium IDE through this blog series. Before stepping into our next tool, Selenium WebDriver, I thought of giving you a freebie.
Now that you have witnessed the power of Selenium tools to an extent, you might want to introduce this tool suite to your project for automation. The most difficult hurdle to overcome here is to convince your clients. Most of the clients don’t really look deep into the technicality of the tool you are introducing, but the cost and returns involved.
So if you can focus and highlight the positive side of Selenium Tool Suite on these aspects, you are sure to taste success. And this exactly is where I am going to surprise you.
