- Selenium is a portable software testing framework for web applications.
- Selenium provides a record/playback tool for authoring tests without learning a test scripting language (Selenium IDE).
- It also provides a test domain-specific language (Selenese) to write tests in a number of popular programming languages, including C#, Java, Groovy, Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby.
- The tests can then be run against most modern web browsers.
- Selenium deploys on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh platforms.
- The Selenium-IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is the tool you use to develop your Selenium test cases.
- It’s an easy-to-use Firefox plug-in and is generally the most efficient way to develop test cases.
- It also contains a context menu that allows you to first select a UI element from the browser’s currently displayed page and then select from a list of Selenium commands with parameters pre-defined according to the context of the selected UI element.
- This is not only a time-saver, but also an excellent way of learning Selenium script syntax.
- Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment for Selenium tests. It is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows you to record, edit, and debug tests.
- Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment for Selenium scripts. It is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows you to record, edit, and debug tests. Selenium IDE includes the entire Selenium Core, allowing you to easily and quickly record and play back tests in the actual environment that they will run.
- Selenium IDE is not only recording tool: it is a complete IDE. You can choose to use its recording capability, or you may edit your scripts by hand. With autocomplete support and the ability to move commands around quickly, Selenium IDE is the ideal environment for creating Selenium tests no matter what style of tests you prefer.
