I am avid Software Tester and have been working on Selenium from past couple of years. I have largely worked with java client driver of Selenium and have started dabbling in to Selenium 2.0 of late. I am also co-author of official Selenium Doc at Selenium Head Quarter which maintains selenium. Besides Selenium, I work on Manual Testing, Performance Testing and automated Accessibility Testing. Of late I have been conducting free on line selenium training. You could find more on this on my site

comment Check an element through Selenium RC
I suppose x refer to left and y refer to top, hence getElementPositionLeft() would give you String object which you could compare with expected value. Same with getElementPositionTop.

comment Should a test method test only one condition?
So this is what I do (and this is something I did not want to reveal while posting the question). When it comes to UI verification of a page, I club (oops I mean "include" :-)) them in one method and my test approach would report failures with one or more missing elements. But for more "logical test" I always have different method. A definite +1

See your point Dale, and yes I am referring to browser bases automated testing. Should have been clear in my question :-<

What if you harness lets test execution continue in wake of failures (especially when you want to do so) and reports all of them in your test report?

I suppose you mean "it can be saved", don't you?

I so very wish you had given psudo code for "verification down to lower levels"

LOL, I did mean "club". In my part of world club also means to "bundle things together"....

comment is it appropriate to do exception handling for every single test method?
Hey Lyndon, I liked the idea of testData.failMessage, this is some thing which I could use to print in test report to see all the failures test has come across while trying to login. While reading your test method "testLogin" I feel that we should not keep more than one assertions in tests. Since when any of the assertion fails then rests are not going to be checked any way. I suppose this is the reason you mentioned a comment stating - "//The below assert is optional as you could also continue to see if you are able to login without credentials" right?

I wish you had written pseudo code for this, can you?

is if block really needed here? if password field were not available then your harness would log an exception any way, is not it?

comment Selenium test timing out
Well I did not see any instance of open method in your code snippet and the only instance available is waitForpageToLoad. As far as I know, setTimeOut is used only after using open method
