JavaScript elements handling in selenium

As we see most of the applications are moving towards development with Angular, React, Aurelia, JS, TS bases scripting language and framework which uses these scripting languages.

When it comes to Quality assurance there is still some project which has not adopted a new framework based on these scripting languages.

For those, we have to interact with the JavaScript element multiple times just to make a tweak in the code. As DOM is very responsive and GUI is fragile we need to make those adjustments in the code. Here are some ways via which we can carry out that in a project which uses Selenium and Java together.

Implementing page object model using protractor and typescript

Before we dwell on some facts let us step back and understand why I am actually writing this blog. As we understand with this rapid growth not only the developers but we Automation Test Engineers are also constantly grooming ourselves by learning new stuff.

Be it a new programming language or a scripting language we have to widen our thoughts. So while thinking of creating a new automation framework now we are discussing things like handling promises, synchronization, infrastructures, continuous testing, continuous integration, version control, etc

In one of the recent project, I have created a framework in which we picked new tech stack in contrast to the one which is widely used (Yes, I am talking about Java+ Eclipse + TestNg.)

Let’s go deep dive and understand what all I have done for automating an application for which Frontend is written in Aurelia and Backend in C#

ADB for mobile quality analysts.

As we (QA) are growing more towards automation, we have now started exploring tools which developers are using for their development. Not just for developing our own testing framework but also for capturing logs, checking code smells, etc we can use adb.

And I think this is very cool and good to start exploring in this direction, as learning is never ending and shall never stop. Mobile testing is very dynamic and in this blog I will share some experience over adb for android testing and debugging.

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.

Maven : Know-how !

To build the Enterprise Edition applications we use Maven.

Please download and install Maven. The build is tested with version 2.2.1 and 2.0.9.

The maven build should be able to set up the sources out of the box. The build should construct all components of the application (e.g. Java Archives, Web application archives, Flex application, etc.) automatically and consolidate them to deployable packages.

Unhandled rejection RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded

Beautification of console with npm dependency

While submitting a paper in one of the conference I have observed that its not just the code which they see while accepting the submission, but also the efforts you have added to show that the code has different elements which makes it unique And I am not talking about the DS, dynamic programming concepts which are by no choice are important and shall be considered while creating a framework. I will discussing in this post about a console beautification dependency of which can be added to project in very less time and presents a very beautiful welcome note before of the run. This can be a simple and quick add on to your framework, so I thought of adding the same in my project as well.

Soft assertions in protractor based typescript automation framework

How many of us has seen that while running code at once glance if the code fails at some step, then other test steps which meant to run post that step is marked as skipped in the final result?

Also, how about rephrasing the same sentence such that the code does not run and marked as skipped in the final run-results challenging the law of ‘fail-fast’. By the execution, we can not infer whether the code was wrong or the functionality dint work as it was an incomplete run for the one who ran it. I am sure many of the QA folks can relate to this. To be more precise, can we relate to this console screenshot.

Selenium Builder – Exporting and execution

In continuation with my last blog I will here share a more advanced capability of Selenium Builder.
Now as we are done with the set up we can talk one step ahead. Lets start with an example :
I have opened a website in firefox and I want to automate some actions on this page . Lets say :

  1.  I want to open the url (https://khyatisehgal.wordpress.com/).
  2. I need to check a blog on this website , the very first one .
  3. I want to see the author’s about me column.

And that’s all.

What I will do for this is ,

  1. I will open the firefox
  2. I will launch Selenium Builder.
  3. I will start doing the above steps .

A tour to Selenium Builder – Locators finding and warming up!

Today I am going to share my experience about a new tool in market. This is a tool which will actually help testers all over the world in automation User Interface or I would say Graphical User Interface .

This tool is still in development and source code is available on ‘git-hub’ . This is launched by sauce labs as an add-on to Firefox.

It works like Selenium IDE but has additional features which are AWESOME !! This helps in

  • finding locators,
  • writing scripts in any language (by exporting option ) ,
  • you can save test suite ,
  • you can directly run you test cases on sauce labs,
  • you can edit/customize your locators,etc

For quick start all you need to do is to go to selenium builder official website from your Firefox browser and click on the install button highlighted in the below picture.  And that is all about the installation , Yipeeiii !!

All about Automation and its pros and cons !

The current trend in user interfaces is geared towards graphical user interfaces (GUIs). GUIs are very complicated and hence GUI testing is very time consuming. Automation is a requirement for testing any larger graphical user interfaces, but automating GUI tests isn’t a forthright task. Automation is not that easy at first.
