Selenium is a specialized, easy-to-use framework for automating interactions with web browsers, whether it’s to test the functionality of web apps that you’ve developed or to automate boring and repetitive tasks or to perform activities like scraping websites.
In this course, we’ll be working with Selenium’s Java API to test browser functionality and automate tasks using nearly 45 solved examples of use cases you might encounter on a regular basis. We’ll look at scenarios like
1) scraping websites for specific elements identified by HTML tags, CSS selectors
2) Testing User interactions of all kinds as click, entering text, drag and drop, selecting from dropdowns
3) Automating Browser Navigation and Handling cookies
4) Switching between your main browser window and pop-up alerts, embedded iframes
5) Interacting with HTML5 based elements like video players
6) and Parallelly running tests across multiple browsers and platforms from your local machine using Selenium Grid
Selenium makes automating all the tasks we’ve mentioned very straightforward but as your tasks get more and more sophisticated you’ll want to use best practices to structure your code. We’ll talk about the Page Object Model design pattern and how you can use it to design testing scripts that are easy to maintain.
Using discussion forums
Please use the discussion forums on this course to engage with other students and to help each other out. Unfortunately, much as we would like to, it is not possible for us at Loonycorn to respond to individual questions from students:-(
We're super small and self-funded with only 2 people developing technical video content. Our mission is to make high-quality courses available at super low prices.
The only way to keep our prices this low is to *NOT offer additional technical support over email or in-person*. The truth is, direct support is hugely expensive and just does not scale.
We understand that this is not ideal and that a lot of students might benefit from this additional support. Hiring resources for additional support would make our offering much more expensive, thus defeating our original purpose.
It is a hard trade-off.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!
