How to take screenshots via Selenium.

If we have to prove something to either a developer or a Product owner then we generally we have several ways via which we can actually show the idea to them, but what if whatever you want to show stop working when you actually want to demo it? This is silly, right? But it happens, You have to believe me!!

How to run Selenium tests in headless mode.

Quick, pace, speed are some synonyms which describes us. We , humans, wants pace in each and every act of ours. We want to speed up things as much as we can do. So we try experimenting things as in we try to search for betterment of work, as we are growing in automating things, replacing human acts to programs or machinery.

If I talk about selenium, then the major time which is spent in framework is at execution. And if I go one step more deeper then the initial point where the execution takes time is when it is trying to open browser be it Chrome, IE or any other. So just to wipe out this pain point there is one such browser which works in headless mode, and is compatible with selenium as well.

Part 2 – Resolution of some major-frequently-seen Selenium utilities.

This blog is a continuation of my previous blog . Here I am collating the data according to my own experience. These methods can be added in the Utility class directly to make wide use of different functionalities.

Part II – One step deeper into Page Object Model.

As we have already discussed in my last post on page object model, why we need design patterns while coding. In this post, lets see what all pre-requisites are required to get a quick start so that we can get a better understanding of POM aka Page Object Model:

  1. The functionality classes (PageObjects) represent a reasoned common lineage between the pages of the application.
  2. The Page Object pattern act for the screens of your web app as a sequence of objects.
  3. It encapsulates the characteristics represented by a page.
  4. It permit us to mock-up the UI in our tests.
  5. A page object is an object-oriented class that work as an interface to a page of your AUT.

Part 2-API testing with rest assured.

In continuation with my previous blog, here I will be sharing some basic rest services methods implementation like POST, GET etc.

api

REST in itself without exception has a lot to learn. It has helped the whole team of developers and QA to evolve and mobilise their work as much as possible.

By providing whole lot of the methods like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH, etc one can traverse the whole code. Not just fetching, or updating, one can even delete then store and use one data in one and another form. Thus making a complete round of testing and development done.

Like REST java also helped in making this dynamic thing more super, lets see how.

There are several phases in a tester’s life starting from working in a team to making automation framework. Along with this he/she has to make sure the integrity of the work-test life-cycle.

Today in this blog post I will share a problem which will come when people who has to work on a framework who was made by someone else and he/she has to maintain and extend it.

Helium .. a boon or not to all automation engineers?

‘Selenium’ is the hot-topic in the automation sector, if any developer or tester knows Selenium well, then it is considered  as he can do anything which is required to perform ‘Web automation’. Its been almost a decade when Selenium came up to the market, and as the time passed it became more and more popular. People started taking it more seriously. Not only as a stand-alone tool, merely with the combination of other tools like Maven, Jenkins, TestNG, etc.

Though the work goes on, and people started taking more interest in this automation area, people started finding flaws in this tool. However some were very genuine, on contrary some seems to make less sense.

Adding ‘Events’ in SoapUI projects

SoapUi provides a wide range of features, and via these capabilities we can not only test our web-services as a whole but also we can implement muliple functions to test an application’s services.
Today I will discuss ‘Events’ in SoapUi so let’s get started.

SoapUI Tutorial Part 2 : A complete run-through of how to make projects in SoapUI

In this piece of write-up, I will share how can we make new projects , test suite , test case , test steps in a new SoapUI .
SoapUI provides multiple option to make a tester more comfortable and getting fast learning curve of services.
It has that capability via which a user work as if he/she is going through any documentation or user manual.
