Web technologies are becoming increasingly complex and there is often a need to test your web applications against a vast number of browsers and platforms, so you need to build highly reliable and maintainable test automation cases. Selenium is one of the most easy to implement and efficient solutions for this.
This book will guide you through designing and implementing the automation framework on Selenium to build advanced automated test cases. You will start with getting acquainted with the Selenium IDE, working with AJAX, and using different methods to locate elements in a web page. You will then move on to using PageObjects, making tests maintainable, using WebDriver with different browsers, and setting up Selenium Grid. You will also be introduced to advanced topics such as working with proxy servers, network intrusions, and more. By the end of the book, you will have the skills to efficiently test your web applications using Selenium. A well-detailed section has been dedicated to teaching you the object-oriented concepts with basics of core Java, which are the pre-requisites for Selenium automation.
