Selenium Core

Advantages of Selenium Core

  • Run No. Of test scripts at a time or we can run individual Test scripts.
  • It shows the result of every command and test in terms of Passed or Failed.
  • Easy to debug the failed test Scripts
  • It allows to run tests in different browsers Ex: Fire Fox, I.E..

Creating Core Tests

  • Use Selenium IDE to create all your tests.
  • Modify the scripts where ever required as you cannot always depend on scripts generated by IDE.
  • Separate data from test and keep them in separate file.
  • Add code to read data and environment parameters.
  • Save test as .html file.

Creating Test Suite
Add all the created tests to your test suite.

     <td><a href="testWorkflow.html">Verifying Default Workflow </a>

Steps for Running Selenium Test Suite

Selenium Core Execution Modes

  1. Step
  2. Pause/Continue
  3. Run the Selected Test
  4. Run All Tests


Overview Of Execution Modes

  • Run All Tests: Run every test in the test suite.
  • Run Selected Test: Click on one test in the test suite, then click here to run just that one test.
  • Pause/Continue: While a test is running, press the Pause button to temporarily stop running commands. After you press Pause, you can press Continue to resume the test.
  • Step: Click on a test in the test suite, then click on just one line of the test to set a "breakpoint." When the Test Runner reaches a breakpoint, it will automatically pause execution on that line. You may then press the Step button to run the next line of the test and pause again. You can also click on a breakpoint line to remove the breakpoint.
