A Smattering of Selenium #37A
My scheme for catching up with links last week ran afoul of 900 geeks and their families melting the internets at CodeMash 188.8.131.52. So let’s try it again this week.
- Capturing screenshots on script failure is a common trick and Capturing Web Page Screenshots with Selenium 2 is the first post I have seen that explains how to do with with Selenium WebDriver
- XPath marks the spot uses a treasure map analogy around how to create good XPath — but at the same time propagates the ‘XPath is Inherently Evil’ myth. I intentionally don’t link to myself nearly as much as I could, but think that my comment in the post is important.
- Unit Test Patterns: The Domain Test Values Class describes a pattern to provide values used in the testing of a domain in a way which improves understanding of test code by increasing readability and adding meaning to values.
- leakhelper is another of those tools that could be cool to integrate into your Se scripts. And if you do, don’t forget to document it and point it out to me…
- Missiles + Failed Builds = Bamboo Punisher — actually, its a crazy high level of awesome
- Software Testing Lightning Talks from IWST includes some on automation at the end — but lots of good non-automation ones as well
- Testing SmartGWT Applications with Selenium and Robot Framework is more Robot Framework goodness including Add some meaningful ID’s to your code — which is actually for SmartGWT but makes life so much easier
- The author of Selenium Simplified compares his book to Selenium 1.0 Testing Tools in So now you have a choice of Selenium Testing books and ebooks is a pretty fair and well-reasoned article. (Short version: buy both)
- If you are a .NET developer, then Selenium Toolkit for .NET 0.84 Released might be of interest.
And assuming I remembered to pay the internet bill, there will be more links tomorrow.
