In Detail

Selenium WebDriver, also known as Selenium 2, is a UI automation tool used by software developers and QA engineers to test their web applications on different web browsers. The Selenium WebDriver API is fully object oriented compared with the deprecated Selenium RC. The WebDriver API provides multi-language support and run tests on all the most popular browsers.

In this wide and complex World Wide Web era, this book will teach you how to tame it by gaining an in-depth understanding of the Selenium API.

This book starts with how to solve the difficult problems that you will undoubtedly come across as you start using Selenium in an enterprise environment, followed by producing the right feedback when failing, and what the common exceptions are, explain them properly (including the root cause) and tell you how to fix them. You will also see the differences between the three available implicit waits and explicit waits, and learn to working with effective page objects.

Moving on, the book shows you how to utilize the Advanced User Interactions API, how you can run any JavaScript you need through Selenium, and how to quickly spin up a Selenium Grid using Docker containers.

At the end, the book will discuss the upcoming Selenium W3C specification and how it is going to affect the future of Selenium.

Style and approach

This book is a pragmatic guide that takes you through the process of creating a test framework. It then shows you how you can extend this framework to overcome common obstacles that you will come across whilst using Selenium.

Review Text

  • By Jignesh on 6 November 2015

    This book is like gold dust for those building selenium frameworks.As the title suggests, it is not an introduction to selenium. It covers all the aspects of an advanced framework with in depth explanation. It also covers topics such as CI severs, build tool and Docker so you have all bases covered.I found Chapter 1, 4 and 5 particularly useful as they helped me with deeper understanding of selenium parallel execution, page objects, page factory, and strategies.Thank you Mark!
