I have been hearing a lot about page object modelling? Why is it so important?
Can someone please outline me page object model?
I'm currently working as QE in webservices area
Your question hints at a couple of questions:
What Is a Page Object?
A page object is code written to model an actual page (or part of a page) in a web application. Eg. each page in your app, would have an associated page object file that provides the “services” that the actual page offers. Eg. if there’s a button on a page in your application, you would have a reference to that button in your page object. If you then write a test that clicks that button, you would access the button through the page object.
Why Use Page Objects?
