Introduction to Selenium and Selenium Web Testing

3 Day

Description

Selenium provides mechanisms for interacting with web pages through browsers, including locating and interacting with specific features within a web interface. A tool such as Selenium IDE can be used to perform the testing in a relatively manual fashion. Selenium also comes with WebDriver, which provides a programmatic interface (API) for controlling and managing Selenium tests and interactions. WebDriver provides a mechanism for capturing and repeating tests with a web interface.

Introduction to Selenium is a hands-on web testing course, essential for experienced web developers and test engineers who need to verify web applications.  This hands-on class focuses on practical skills and best practices to ensure the student learns the ins and outs of Web Application testing with Selenium and Java. 

To participate in the hands-on labs, incoming students should have familiarity with basic Java syntax. Students without basic Java background are welcome to follow along with the labs and cut and paste code or lab solutions as needed.

Throughout the course you’ll work with a sample Web Application that requires several testing scenarios. Working in a hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will learn to:

  • Understand web page testing needs and how Selenium meets those needs
  • Analyze a web application from a functional and testing perspective
  • Design, code, and run manual tests using the Selenium IDE
  • Use Selenium constructs to locate elements on a web page
  • Test web page forms and the elements in those forms
  • Review Java constructs needed to by testers in working with WebDriver
  • Design code and run automated Selenium tests using the Java WebDriver API
  • Use the WebDriver API to test advanced web features such as delayed responses and Ajax
  • Using a combination of JUnit 5 features and WebDriver to consume streams of data for testing
  • Focus on Best Practices for Selenium testing using the Java WebDriver API

Prerequisites

This is an introductory-level Selenium course, designed for experienced web developers that are familiar with Java, who wish to get up and running on testing web applications.  Ideally students should have approximately 6 months to a year of web development working knowledge.

NOTE: For some of the labs, attendees should have some familiarity with basic Java syntax prior to attending this class. Basic Java fundamentals are NOT covered this course.  For attendees light on Java skills, code may be copied and pasted to complete those exercises.

Take Before:  We recommend attendees have the skills in the course listed below, or attend this course as a pre-requisite:

  • Basic Java Primer for Non-Developers (QA, testers, etc) – 2 days
