Likelihood to Recommend

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.

TestComplete

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to automate multiple applications and/or large scale applications.I feel like this product wouldn't make a lot of sense for very small applications. However, they could provide testing services geared towards start-ups. If TestComplete made a "lite" version I could see is the product being used for start-ups as well as for smaller organizations.

Pros

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 As a Java native program, it's safe to say that it would be considered outdated by our upcoming generation of developers.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.

TestComplete

  • The record and play back works great for our less technical team members. Basic UI validations and some of the happy path functionality can easily be automated.
  • The structure and set up of Project Suites. Easy to organize tests and group into functional tests that can be reused in Test cases.
  • Multiple Types of tests projects can be created. Mobile, Web Page and Web Services. When setting up a new project the wizard guides the user through and allows for the selection of many different options as well as the coding language that is preferred.

Cons

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.

TestComplete

  • Having never used anything like TestComplete before joining my company, it wasn't exactly the easiest application to pick up. The code examples online (particularly the SQL ones) were a little difficult to get the hang of. I was greatly helped by having a guy on my team who had worked with TestComplete for a few years, but the onboarding was a little rough.
  • We've run into various errors over the years involving memory leaks (which required a hotfix patch) and even scripts written in TestComplete not running in TestExecute. While these have always been addressed by patches (or new major versions in the case of the TestExecute issues), it has occasionally required some clever work-around in order to get it to do what we need.
  • We have encountered many issues running TestComplete in an RDP session to a virtual machine. The RDP window needs to be open at all times and cannot be minimized. This may be a technological limitation, but it would be really convenient if we could run 'headless' scripts as scheduled tasks.

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.

Besides the good GUI with flexible settings, application has a great support. Customers are involved in development process, can send feature requests and vote for them. Some of my requests already implemented or coming soon.

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.

If you develop a mobile application and your testing process goes in cloud, probably you will face a problem - how to implement a stable connection between your mobile devices and testing servers

Alternatives Considered

Selenium

UFT is a paid tool from microfocus and able to automated alomsts all platforms but there is Fee for licensed versions software. TOSCA is also a paid tool from Tricentis which does not require coding skills from tester and implements mode based automation. where as selenium is free from costs but need skilled tester to implement test.

TestComplete

For the most part, TestComplete has the same functionality as any one of the other products we looked at. In many cases, the capabilities were somewhat less than the competitor products, but we found that the higher costs of any of the other products we not justified when comparing the capabilities. TestComplete had the highest overall bang-for-the-buck rating and was less expensive than all of the other competitor products.

Return on Investment

Selenium

  • Selenium helps us to automate almost all of our test functions, so we could develop a new feature and get it to go live quicker without spending much effort on regression test current functions.
  • Save our efforts on developing automation test framework and test case. It saves effort on manual testing.
  • Have full CICP pipeline, from the build to unit test to functional testing.
Hung Vu | TrustRadius Reviewer

TestComplete

  • We have seen a much more efficient product release cycle since using TestComplete. )Mainly down to the fact that a new build can be issued and tested very quickly. In turn, this means problems can be found a lot quicker, and the process repeats.)
