Selenium testing tool is one of the essential automation testing tools for web applications or websites. So, it is quite efficient for us to learn the right process to code and write the selenium test scripts. In this blog, we are going to see how to write selenium test scripts
Using Selenium Tool.
Step 1: Install All the necessary Applications & Components:
Before we start writing the Selenium test script, it is necessary for us to get all the components essential for the process. Some of the necessary components to conduct the selenium testing include Eclipse, Java (JDK), and WebDriver Language bindings.
Once we are done arranging these components, we need to configure the Selenium WebDriver along with the Eclipse. Now, we are all set to go ahead and write the first test script and run it.
Step 2: Sign Up For the Browser Stack Account:
For running or creating the Selenium test scripts, you need a Selenium grid. Browser Stack is one of such grids that will be used for writing Selenium test scripts, Browser Stack has the ability to help implement Selenium testing and test mobile applications, web applications, and websites across more than 2000 real browsers, devices, desktops, and others. So, sign up for an account on Browser Stack, after which we can go ahead and learn to write the test script.
Step 3: Choose Automate Tab from the Grid Menu:
Find the automate tab from the homepage of Browser Stack and find the option where we are asked to configure, integrate, and run the test. Here, we will start configuring the test or write the Selenium test script. Before that, we need to make sure that the Selenium configurations and components are installed.
Step 4: Add the Necessary Codes:
A specific set of codes must be present in your test script to process the automation test run. We have to prepare a WebDriver code depending on the logic of the test case. we might have to change this code a little, relying upon the browser requirements too.
Some of the other essential codes that need to be present in the test script include package importing codes, instantiating variables and object codes, browser session launch codes, actual & expected value comparison codes, acquiring page title codes, browser session ending codes, and program ending codes.
Step 5: Integrate the Changes with BrowserStack:
We need to make some changes to the code based on our test case logic or website. BrowserStack makes it easy for us to write the test scripts as they have the templates ready for us to edit and make the changes.
