NeoLoad

NeoLoad is a very comprehensive tool if you are looking for a performance test tool for web applications and other applications using protocols like REST, SOAP, etc. The concepts are easy to understand and mostly clear. This enables you to develop very fast tests with a very good flexibility regarding the number of virtual users, the mixture of scripts, locations where load is generated or there is load variation. In consulting projects it is very helpful that project data and reports can be viewed by NeoLoad without the need of a license.

Selenium

Ease of use and the intuitive set up of Selenium IDE are both easy positives. Setup is very speedy and almost any employee will be able to grasp the ideas presented. We utilized Selenium for Quality Assurance lab situations but maintained discretion for each member of the firm. It was definitely reliable enough, even given the ratio for false-positive readings, for us to choose it for primary automation in lab functions. The cost to use Selenium was basically in the middle of the road as far as range goes.

Pros

NeoLoad

  • Building performance testing scripts is easy. NeoLoad builds the scripts for you by recording your session as you navigate through the application under test.
  • NeoLoad works with mobile applications using the same recording technique.
  • NeoLoad has modules that permit gathering OS metrics from the target host and correlating the data with the load testing results. The modules are agentless, meaning that there no need to deploy NeoLoad code modules on the host to gather these metrics.

Selenium

  • Simple record and playback UI. Many programs boast interfaces that appear confusing upon open. However, Selenium creators have implemented a simple UI which makes it not only easy to use, but easy to learn.
  • Support for various languages. As a Java native program, it's safe to say that it would be considered outdated by our upcoming generation of developers. Yet, it also supports Python, Ruby, Pearl, PHP, and more.

Cons

NeoLoad

  • Building Test Plans takes time. When the input fields of page changes it breaks the previous plan. The tool would be better if it had a way to migrate an existing plan and adapt to small changes.
  • Documentation is fair, but would be improved with more detailed screenshot by screenshot configuration changes rather than summation using words.

Selenium

  • Recognize Adobe Flash and MS Silver Light elements without additional help
  • Detect and locate Java applets ingredients
  • Having the "Wait-till-Displayed" or "Wait-till-Present" as a built in Web Driver function instead of requirement for writing loops and defining expliccit wait, visiblewait, invisiblewait, etc.

We love this product mainly because of its high customization abilities and the ease of use. Moreover, its free and can be learned easily through online communities and videos. The tests are more consistent and reliable as compared to Manual tests. It has enabled us to test a large number of features all in one go, which would have impossible through manual tests. The reports generated at the end of the tests are really helpful for the QA and the development teams to get a fair view of the application.

Selenium is a great tool but using it as is is almost impossible. You have to create a framework to use this tool otherwise the miantenance of your tests will be too high.

The tool can be used across organizations by various roles. It's free of cost and integrates well with most of the sophisticated or opensource development, build management, CI/CD, or management tools. Selenium has outstanding community support and is continuously updated to support newer technologies. The availability of lots of plugins/add-ons makes it a tool that can talk to almost any other tool available in your organization.

We did everything we needed to use it.Now we can execute our tests on different operational systems and browsers running few tests simultaneously.We also implemented Appium framework to execute our tests on mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets.We use SauceLabs for our test execution and Jenkins for continuous integration.

Alternatives Considered

NeoLoad

As I have always mentioned, you do not need to be super technical in order to get your job done. You do not need to write your script.
Saifur Rahman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Selenium

Since it is an open-source testing tool, there is no licensing cost involved. Selenium is a cross-platform tool that supports cross-browser testing. To manage and report test cases Selenium can be easily integrated with frameworks like JUnit, TestNG.

Return on Investment

NeoLoad

  • The ROI using Neoload has been positive, as we have been able to detect performance issues at te UAT phase and fix them before deploying changes to production environment.

Selenium

  • There hasn’t been a downside to using it yet other than we’ve got to update the programs we create for each change.
  • This has saved us hundreds of hours of manpower by allowing our automation engineer to rapid fire tests.
  • We are able to screenshot and save entire sites before and after launch with a program the automation engineer created
  • We can compare large volumes of data against data in excel docs with a program created using Selenium
