I don't know whether a certification is necessary for automation testing, but you definitely require good coding skills and logic development skills for it. Its advantageous to learn Java as its open source and hence there are countless forums and communities to seek kelp. Plus many of the automation testing tools (specially open source testing tools) use ...

In order to test something, you need to install it somewhere, i.e. in a runtime environment. In the process of running your test, you may change the runtime environment in ways that you need to clean up before you run your next test. There are two ways to clean up: you can undo the changes, or you can throw the environment away and create a new one from ...

As I understood the question, it is required to define the reusable methods and use those methods in different test cases based on the requirement. Here I am writing the code for two individual methods to work with,... public void inputKeys(WebElement we,String ip){ we.sendKeys(ip); } The above code just type the string value referred by ip variable. ...

The getText() method returns all the text within a HTML element. In this case all the text between the start <a> and the end </a>. This includes other tags and their contents. Try to split the string on white spaces and use the first word found. String value = getText(); String[] words = value.split("\\s+"); String result = words[0]; Now ...

Bootstrap a clean environment for each test to test in isolation. This might look like a lot of overhead, but is very needed if you want to parallel run your tests and not get flickering and possible untrusted tests. Personally I create a session GUID and then generate test data and store in it in a database with the GUID. Boot an environment and let it ...

Selenium/WebDriver will do just fine. WebDriver is W3C standard for browser automation. Automation of testing is on a spectrum, from almost fully manual to 100% automated. Test automation is manual testing aided with some automation. Preferably close to 100% but you will start with less than 100% :-) Automated tests are full suites of tests run ...

If a font-family is set on the body tag in your stylesheet, then that font will apply to nearly every element throughout your site (form and table elements being the exception where you have to redeclare the font-family for those). The only time the font-family declared on the body won't apply is if it's overridden by a different font-family applied on ...

Everything enclosed within the <a> </a> tags is considered as part of the link text. So if you use the getText() method of Selenium, you will get the whole text. If you want a part of the text, you should try to shed the unwanted text. Get the text and store it in a String variable. Trim the unwanted text from that string and you will have ...

The main principles to guide you here are: Each test should be independent. It should perform its own setup and teardown and after running leave the system in the same (initial) state. This will help avoid issues such as "But if I run one test script at a time, I get the result I want" The only exception to this is system-wide seed data needed for ...

Certifications don't teach testing. Still if you want to go for one, well, there are several available out there. But, they don't teach you how to test, they mostly teach only a certain terminologies. Yes, learning a programming language is an added advantage for a tester, especially for someone who is looking to make a career in automation testing or ...

The question and the description that you have written for it are misleading. I'm assuming you want to know which certifications will help you get a start for your career in Software Testing. Well for that I don't think you need to go for any certifications. Read good blogs and article on testing. There are thousands of them available on the internet. ...
