The first two days of this course are instructor led and the third day is a hands-on workshop. Selenium allows both developers and test analysts to automate tests and execute them with multiple browsers. This course aims to provide a solid foundation to the attendee to understand automated testing using Selenium. A key focus is to teach what the tool is capable of and the practical steps required to make automation work.
Test automation specialists looking to learn Selenium
Testers wishing to become test automation specialists.
On completion of the course, attendees will understand how to configure Selenium and how to automate tests using the tool.
Although it is beneficial that attendees have a coding background (ideally in CSharp), this is not essential. The code examples used during the course are available in the training environment for attendees less experienced in CSharp to access.
Core skills taught on the course
Overview of Selenium IDE and available add-ins
Recording and replay of a Selenium IDE Test
Object recognition tools Chropath.
Assertions and Verifications
Exporting a Selenium IDE Test as CSharp
Creating Selenium Scripts in VSCode
Configuring a new C# project in VSCode
Creating a basic automated test and a test suite
Executing a test and test suite through VSCode
Importing a test from Selenium IDE
Components of Selenium Webdriver in NUnit
Annotations in WebDriver
Interacting with the AUT: Object locators
Actions on WebElements
Data Driving Selenium Tests
Use of data sources (e.g. Excel spreadsheets, CSV files, databases) to provide increased maintainability flexibility.
Debugging and coding
Debugging skills are a critical and often overlooked part of learning how to automate tests.
This section teaches basic debugging within VSCode, including:
Retrieving values on-the-fly
Stepping through code
Observing the Application under Test
Building and testing a hypothesis
Page Object Model
The Page Object Model enables reusablee code to provide a maintainable automation framework.
Areas covered include:
Introducing the Page Object Model
Accessing the page objects in a test script
Object recognition is one of the commonest issues automation testers have to face. A number of techniques and approaches can be used, including:
Why it is difficult to identify an object.
Choice of element locator
Use of multiple locator properties
Use of XPath or CSS syntax and patterns
Use of ordinal identifiers
Using Chropath to write more stable locators
Descriptive programming for dynamic objects
How to navigate web iframes
A series of hands-on learning exercises including:
Selenium IDE: Creating a new test
VSCode: Importing the new Selenium test into a newly created C# project
