Same test case scripts can be executed on different mobiles irrespective of operating systems and language it supports. This covers a wide range of devices (Android, iOS, Blackberry etc) on which automated testing can be performed in very less time. The test scripts are written written using keyword-based Script Once Technology. The creation of scripts are easy. It saves time and effort. Repetitive testing on each iteration would be now be less tedious. This would also allow QA to focus on quality. It would expand test case coverage in the application and finally release reliable/robust application. In all, improving the app quality.

Selenium

Selenium is one of the few tools on the market that allows interaction with a browser that is open-source, so it would be really hard to fault/beat it. It's actually available to use in many languages (like Java, Javascript, Python, etc.), so it does cater to many out there. The use case is simple, but powerful, "to imitate a real user interacting with a webpage". This opens up so much in regards to Front end automation and will automate many of your test cases which you would normally manually perform, in a much slower and error-prone way. In addition, you could write scripts to act as tools, if say an API isn't exposed to you. For example, you could create scripts to register an account on a website with different randomised usernames each time. So not just limited to testing. The only downside is that Selenium could hit a scenario where it becomes stuck, then it will crash and require you to debug where it went wrong. But this is more down to the logic of the scripts rather than Selenium itself. You would need to know your product well to cater to these scenarios as Selenium won't handhold you to why things crash/fail.

Cons

Perfecto, by Perforce

  • It has a lot of room for improvements in terms of reporting and integration with other reporting and defect tools.
  • It should have the capability of capturing charts data.
  • It should be able to do some scenarios that only manual testers can do. Like - use of camera and touch ID features.

Selenium

  • Selenium is pretty user-friendly but sometimes tests tend to flake out. I'd say roughly one out of twenty tests yields a false positive.
  • Selenium software cannot read images. This is a minor negative because a free plug-in is available from alternate sources.
  • Slowness may be a minor factor with Selenium, though this is an issue with basically any testing software since waiting on a site to execute JavaScript requires the browser to wait for a particular action.

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.

As I mentioned earlier, the reason I use Selenium is because there is a fairly widespread community of users, and user support services are at a good level. because the application is open source, it works on many platforms (Windows, Linux, IOS) without any problems. In addition, it gives us a lot of options for writing functional tests. For errors that we receive through the application, we can easily find the reasons for errors in the forums.

Selenium does not have technical support available easily. You have to go through forums to get the information you need. However, there are excellent forums out there that make it easy to troubleshoot. The open-source flexibility makes it difficult to have dedicated support.

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

Perfecto, by Perforce

Perfecto has a wide array of mobile devices we can chose from. Automation is easier using OCR technology. The test script generated detailed report of the executed test script at the end with vast variety of information such as actual results, screen captures in digital format, continuous video recording of the entire script and graphs showing statistics about the execution

Sikuli is a GUI automation program that offers an alternative for web based (and any other engine) programs. Sikuli's native language is Python. However, users can customize the software with add-ons similar to Selenium add-ons. These add-ons extend the use of Sikuli to languages such as Java, JavaScript, many C based languages, etc.

Return on Investment

Perfecto, by Perforce

  • Since the devices are over cloud, it saves a lot of investment on mobile testing.
  • Can be used by testers across the globe.

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
