Overall Satisfaction with Selenium

Selenium is being used across multiple teams within our Engineering department.
Easy to use Test Automation Tool:
We mainly use Selenium to run some automated test cases. Since it doesn't have platform dependency and doesn’t really require learning new languages, it gives us lot of flexibility in usage. It can be easily integrated with various development platforms such as Jenkins, Maven, etc.
  • Open-source.
  • Supports multiple browsers.
  • Supports parallelism while running test cases.
  • It cannot support non web based applications like Oracle Apps.
  • It doesn't really have any built-in reporting for test cases.
  • Not suitable for IPM (Image Processing Management) related testing.
  • After automating most of our test cases in Selenium we reduced lot of regression testing time. This gives more time to act on other components in the sprint.
  • Though we use Selenium for running automated testcases, there are few areas where we couldn't implement test cases due to tool dependencies.
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.

Do you think Selenium delivers good value for the price?

Automation testing framework using Selenium is best suited when the same test and the same code is used for different inputs.

Selenium can be used as test automation tool
for automating Web based applications to run tests very quickly.
