@Anoop It's a bad practice to swallow exception that should terminate your test, as you did in your question. What is the reason you're catching AssertionError and printing it? If there's AssertionError in your test it will be printed any way after test execution.

comment Want to be Software Tester? From where to start?
Good answer. I just want to clarify that automation testers does not only write automation scripts (and in particular not in Java), see for example: satisfice.com/presentations/agileauto.pdf

Log4j is passe and démodé, go for slf4j and logback ;-)

comment Why does ISTQB say Boundary Value Analysis is a black box technique
Not sure if you trust Wikipedia, but it says "The tendency is to relate equivalence partitioning to so called black box testing which is strictly checking a software component at its interface, without consideration of internal structures of the software. But having a closer look at the subject there are cases where it applies to grey box testing as well.": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equivalence_partitioning

Can't you use C# to get the current system date/time?

comment Why does ISTQB say Boundary Value Analysis is a black box technique
@corsiKa, sure, I can call it BVA2 and put a trademark on that ;-) But my argument was not really about definitions but rather about usefulness. The answer states that defining classes of inputs and their boundaries based on the implementation is less useful than defining them based on requirements only. I don't agree and think that your example shows it perfectly: both implementation and requirements can help.

I don't agree. I often find edge cases that reveal bugs based on the code or code coverage information. So this information is very useful. I would then call BVA a grey box technique.

Love that question! It shows that theory is not always capturing practice well. The fact that what you're doing doesn't match definitions doesn't mean you're doing it wrong.

I would try to make a more generic solution with EventFiringWebDriver: selenium.googlecode.com/git/docs/api/java/org/openqa/selenium/…
