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 into 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 are widely used (Yes, I am talking about Java+ Eclipse + TestNg.)

Lets 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.

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.

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 !!

Introduction to Selenium Locators.

Often, Recording and playing back a recorded script using Selenium IDE and Webdriver is just a stepping stone to write a more meaningful test script(see my last blog). Almost, in all the cases, it serves as a template to add more code and to do more.

At times there are many facts which we used to overlook which seems very minute but turns to be very weird when comes to actual writing. While it may be a straight thing to use a locator strategy suggested by the recorded test, this is seldom useful while dealing with dynamic resources. One of them is finding locators.

There are many ways to detect locators in selenium. One way is via Selenium IDE,which records the user action and in return gives the locator. The other way is to find the locator via HTML from web page.

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.
