Testing with Selenium

Testing with Selenium

It can be frustrating learning to write test scripts like a pro using the powerful but complex testing tool Selenium.  That’s why QualiTest trains their testers in this powerful open source framework for web-driven applications, allowing us to quickly write code that is maintainable, concise and readable.

Writing Test Cases with the Power and Approach of a Developer

Automated testing can significantly reduce your testing resources and execution time

Through element level selection, you can simulate the actions of manual testing your web app with the automation’s added benefits of speed and precision. This can be crucial, when Agile and DevOps and multiple software builds per day pressure Testing to deliver rapid responses. No longer must companies commit to a specific proprietary automation toolkit, only to be trapped with the expensive annual licensing and service rep quirks tied to it. Open source solutions have high appeal in the IT community, and we continue to see Selenium rise in popularity.

As an automation solution, Selenium has many benefits.

No purchase or licensing cost


Firefox, IE, Safari

Access to platforms other than Windows

like UNIX, Solaris, Linux,
OS X, iOS and Android)

A great fit for those with developer skills, allowing for a wide range of developmental languages to choose from

C#, HTML, Java, .Net, Perl,
PHP, Python, Ruby, etc.

Installability on a server while running like a client

Integration with many plug-ins and supplementary tools that expand Selenium’s reach, such as TestNG or JUnit to manage logging and reporting

Support by a large helpful developer community with many shared libraries

Extendability via Appium to expand into mobile testing

Risks of failure

The risks of failure for test automation projects exceed 60%.

Those who began as manual testers may lack a developer mindset for taking advantage of Selenium.

Those who started in automation testing may have never learned the basics of designing good coverage into their test scenarios.

Regression scripts not built for easy maintenance  grow stale per the Pesticide Paradox, falsely reporting bugs due to lack of updates or falsely failing to validate behavior of newer features.

The regression scripts, often a large complex collection, require maintenance to usefully evolve with the system they support.

if you fall into any of the traps listed above, you are doomed to fail by design.
