Overall Satisfaction with Selenium

We are doing a design functional/UI data-driven automation testing framework using Selenium WebDriver(Java) and TestNG. We have several projects automated with selenium. They are all running reliably. This is a great way to manage the test data, it is especially good for multi-platform testing. Using Selenium, TestNG and Maven is a good set for designing the automation testing framework.
  • Saves time for a regression test.
  • Good for UAT tests.
  • Easy to integrate with other open source tools like Jenkins.
  • Comparatively slow.
  • Not as stable as API level testing.
  • Might take time to develop in the early state of automation test framework design.
  • May need people with good knowledge for building a good framework that is easy to maintain.
  • Good for projects that last more than 6 months.
  • May not be good for short-term projects.
  • BadBoy
  • More flexible.
  • Supports multiple browsers.
  • Can be used for mobile testing.
Selenium is good for web-based applications. There are limitations for desktop based applications.
