Do you think that time is the problem here? If so try to increase the time you are providing in Thread.sleep(); and see it that works out for you. If its not the time, then did you try to find out what the problem is? Are you getting any error?

For writing Selenium tests itself, none. Selenium does not use SQL. Now if the application under test uses SQL, maybe you need a bit of knowledge to setup test data for your tests. For basic SQL knowledge have a look at the free SQL course at Codecademy. This should probably be enough.

No. Do not just split your pageObject into pageObject2, 3, 4, etc. This goes for all programming - split your classes logically by function, not arbitrarily! Your page object should be the source of truth for that specific page. When you start trying to interact with your page, does it really make sense that you should search between MyForm.java and MyForm2....

Yes and you're definitely ahead of the crowd already with the plan you've laid out. Additional considerations: In addition to using a Page Object Model, consider a central place for hard coded values (simple methods that return a string in some cases). So the identifiers for the css locator for last_name are in one place (along with other css element ...

At this situation We have lots of options- Option 1 : Look for any other attribute which Is not changing every time In that div node like name, class etc. So If this div node has class attribute then we can write xpath as bellow. //div[@class='post-body entry-content']/div[1]/form[1]/input[1] Option 2 : We can use absolute xpath(full xpath) where you ...

JUnit 4 and TestNG are both very popular unit test framework in Java. However, TestNG's goal is much wider, which includes not only unit testing, but also support of integration and acceptance testing, etc. Which one is better or more suitable depends on use contexts and requirements. Annotations: In JUnit, the @BeforeClass and @AfterClass methods have to ...

I think that you should create a page object class for each page of the site. If you have a single page site, you can create page widgets instead of page objects. The page widgets will correspond to components of the web page (example: footer, header, etc). When the number of your page object classes increases, you should create a base class that all page ...

Short answer to your question: Unfortunately, Selenium do not provide any built-in function for minimizing the browser window, there is only function for maximizing the window. But there are some work around for doing this. You want window to be out of sight, then you need to use this code. by using it browser window will be out of your sight and you will ...

With JavaScript you can check if a DOM element is in the viewport, see this question for example code: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/123999/how-to-tell-if-a-dom-element-is-visible-in-the-current-viewport Now if we add this isElementInViewport() JavaScript function to our application under test we can call it from Selenium with the JavaScriptExecutor ...

As the other answer already said, the preferred order is this: ID Locator NAME Locator CSS Locator XPATH Locator However, the reason why is simple: an ID is supposed to be unique, so once you have a certain element with a specific identifier, this is unlikely to change. Also, no matter where the element is moved to on a page, the ID stays the same. ...

This shows how. "TestNG is used to enable parallel execution on runner level"

Selenium is a software library to locate elements on web page and interact with them. To deal with images, you need to use different library. Selenium can provide screenshots (images) but you need to use something else to work with such images. As a programmer, you need to master more than a single library, and learn to use right tool for the job.

Major difference in TestNG and JUnit test frameworks is their scope. Junit is a unit testing framework while TestNG addresses testing at a higher level. and my recommendation is TestNG(Next Generation) Framework. Find the some references to get details about both of them- http://www.slideshare.net/ssuser220b38/junit-and-testng http://software-testing-...

The reason behind the exception you have mentioned is because with your test script you are trying to locate an element that doesn't exist in the webpage you are trying to test. how will you resolve It? Well, along with the text you have provided, the console would also have given the line number in the test script where this exception occurred. I ...

My main criteria is readability and maintainability. Speed has never been as issue for me. There's other parts of the test frameworks I use that have much more significant speed issues. The basic idea is always 'what will it take to uniquely identify the element' with two principles: Don't over specify the page structure - this will make the selector ...

The syntax is cumbersome, but there are a couple things you can do. If you don't care about the message returned by the first keyword, you can use Run keyword and return status. This is perhaps the easiest solution, since the keyword will return either True or False. ${status}= Run keyword and return status ... Page should contain element id=...

You can use the Selenium2Library Get Element Attribute keyword to get the style attribute: | | ${style}= | Get element attribute | id=check_style@style You can then either use a regular expression to find the background color attribute or do some additional parsing. The latter would be easier to do in python than with robot keywords. For example, if you ...

You will find the answer here: http://robotframework.org/Selenium2Library/doc/Selenium2Library.html For reference, in this case I would use the keyword "Get Element Attribute" and compare it against the expected result.

Ask your developers to add a name (which does not need to be unique) to relevant elements. find_elements (Java may have different spelling) returns a LIST of elements. If you cannot have name, you can find by CSS class. Xpath is locator of last hope, too brittle and too slow.

Try using //li[@class='moreGenres']/span as an xpath For css, what you have - .moreGenres>span does work - so see if maybe you have that li in more than one place perhaps? or maybe make it a bit more specific such as li.moreGenres>span or ul>li.moreGenres>span or (better) ul.this_list>li.moreGenres>span It might also be ...

This is my first try to setup Behat Magetest for Magento on my MacOS - my tests run quite well and I want to share my experience. First of all you should download MAMP Pro and Magento, if you did not do it already. It works without MAMP too - but that is how I did it - so feel free to work without MAMP. My final tests are based on the sample data provided ...

I haven't tried it but there's a Chrome Extension called Selenium Page Object Generator that looks like it automates PO creation, and it supports C#. SWD Page Recorder also automates PO creation, and supports C#.
