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

  • The efficiency in testing is beneficial with Selenium because without the questioning the potential usefulness of software, we wouldn't really be able to confirm that certain web applications will perform the way we want them to.
  • Quality Assurance has worked better with Selenium since this program helps eliminate manual QA testing, which itself could lead to exponential error, and cost.
  • A strength of Selenium is also the array of tools as well as cross-platform capability. The remotely controlled server acts as a device platform for JavaScript, PHP, Perl, and Ruby.

Cons

  • 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.

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

Compared to other tools which I have used, Selenium is easy to use. Also since Selenium is open source lot of support from other users is available. And the features & the Java language used for programming can be easily understood & learned. There are lot of packages / libraries available which we can import for testing (like POI library, Chrome / FF / IE browsers plugin).

Return on Investment

  • Positive impact: Using Selenium saved lot of time & effort that was used for manual testing.
  • Cross browser testing was an easier task.
  • The Eclipse, all Selenium jar files was easy to use and also the IDE feature was helpful in understanding about automation testing.
  • Negative impact: Its bit slow at times while recording the script.
