There are nearly 6 million apps that are distributed across the globe through different app distribution markets. This number is climbing as many more apps are being developed daily. Gone are the days when we had apps only to play games on mobile devices. The new age of app development has revealed that we are closing in on having apps for every need. With the help of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, Augmented and Virtual Reality, we are able to achieve more than what we could ever imagine.

The App world is no more restricted to…


In the fast-moving world today, no one has the patience to wait for months and years to get a new mobile app or softwares. Gone are the days when developers took a long time to develop a software program or app. With the rise in the technologies and tools, software development and application building has taken a new direction. Companies are now focused on catering to the millions of consumers who have turned to their smartphones to perform some of their day to day tasks. The boon of social media and networking applications have made it possible for people to…


Selenium is considered one of the best testing tools for automating web applications. It is a powerful tool with built-in features to support all types of actions related to the keyboard and mouse. The user performs various operations while exploring the web like clicking any button, entering text, Double click, right-click, drag-and-drop, select from the drop-down menu, resize, etc. Actions Class in Selenium is required to perform such single or multiple interactions. Also, Selenium Actions are used to automate such interactions with the browser through mouse and keyboard using automation scripts. Even to test any application using Selenium, these actions…


As per a recent Developer Survey by Stack Overflow, Python is the third most sought-after programming language among developers. It is the most accessible and simplified programming language and provides an extensive support system for test automation frameworks. With more and more implementation of Artificial Intelligence, Python has become a popular choice. Many liked Selenium Python frameworks for test automation are employed for cross-browser and automation browser testing. Python testing frameworks have seen a surge in their demand recently, making it imperative to choose the best Selenium test automation framework that suits your requirements.

Why Python for Test Automation? It…


In this evolution of technology, the level of test automation has significantly increased not only in terms of quantity but as well in quality. A lot of companies are now switching to test automation using different tools and technologies to achieve their business goals. Every organization dreams of increased productivity with faster development and quality delivery in a cost-effective manner and this is what they can achieve with automation testing. The question that usually comes up is: after investing a lot of time in automating the testing process, will this maximize the organization’s ROI? …


Selenium is the most preferred tool of all times when it comes to automating web applications. Selenium supports many unit testing Frameworks based on multiple programming languages like JAVA, C#, PHP, Ruby, Perl, JavaScript, Python; used for executing test scripts on web applications on platforms like Windows, MacOS, Linux, etc. Any successful automation process is based on powerful Testing Frameworks that help the QA team optimize their agile processes, reduce maintenance cost, testing efforts, and provide a higher return on investment.

Selenium Framework and Unit Testing

What is Unit Testing?

Before moving on to the framework in Selenium, let us discuss what Unit Testing means. The term is simpler…


Introduction

Everyone loves Agile and the way it is replacing all the older methodologies and development models with a streamlined and sustainable system for faster delivery cycles. However, the ever-prevailing Manual testing practice has always kept the QA teams from entirely adopting Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery, making Agility unreachable. Fortunately, tools like Jenkins help reach the goals of the CI/CD pipeline, i.e., to maintain a continuous flow of software updates in production and shorter release cycles at reduced costs.

Jenkins and its relation to DevOps and CI/CD

We know that Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery are integral parts of the DevOps process and inevitable in the Agile approach…


As per the browser market share, Google Chrome is said to be the most used cross-platform browser in the world. Every new chrome version comes up with an exciting feature that hikes the importance and usage of the chrome browser. Hence, it becomes essential to test our web application on such a high-rated browser.

Performing different test cases manually on different chrome versions can be hectic and challenging. To overcome this challenge, it is necessary to perform test automation on the chrome browser.

Selenium is an open-source project offering a variety of tools and libraries for web browser automation. It…


Overview

Parameterization in TestNG is also known as Parametric Testing which allows testing an application against multiple test data and configurations. Though we have to consider the fact that exhaustive testing is impossible, however, it is necessary to check the behavior of our application against different sets of data that an end-user can pass. Time and manual effort saving have always been a primary reason for automating an application against all possible data combinations.

Hardcoding the test values every time in our test scripts is never said to be a good automation practice. To overcome this, the TestNG framework helps us…


Testing solutions have become more scalable with the advancement of technology, easing organizations’ move from manual testing to Selenium test automation. But nothing comes easy. Running multiple tests in parallel is still unscalable for many organizations. They tend to follow conventional, sequential testing methods to deliver A-Class quality assurance demanding high time, efforts, and resources. Organizations are either hesitant to implement parallel testing in Selenium or not adopting it because of their small-sized web applications that aren’t ready for parallel testing. But, somewhere down the line, web applications are bound to expand at every release. So adopting parallel testing will…
