Selenium WebDriver in Practice

Web applications are difficult to test because so much depends on the way a user interacts with individual pages. The Selenium WebDriver web testing framework helps developers build reliable and maintainable test automation for their web applications across multiple browsers, operating systems and programming languages. Much like a human, it can click on links, fill out forms, and read web pages. Unlike a human, it never gets bored. WebDriver can do nearly anything it's asked to do-the trick is to come up with a unified approach to testing. Fortunately, that's where this book really shines. Selenium WebDriver in Practice is a hands-on guide to dozens of specific techniques developers can use to get the most out of WebDriver in test automation development. Following a cookbook- style Problem/Solution/Discussion format, this practical handbook gives readers instantly-useful solutions for important areas like interacting with and testing web applications and using the WebDriver APIs. Readers graduate from WebDriver fundamentals to must-have practices ranging from how to interact with, control and verify web pages and exception handling, to more complex interactions like page objects, alerts, and JavaScript, as well as integrating with Continuous Integration tools, mobile testing, and much more. By the end of the book, readers will be confident and skilled at testing their web applications with WebDriver. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
