In that case Sikuli shouldn't work. But if you succeed somehow I will be happy to know.

Yes, but I assume you had your screen attached right? You didn't run it completely headless. Headless means no screen attached at all. Like a virtual system on a cloud for example.

Is that something you personally have been successful with? If so I will be super happy if you could share your experience? According to official sources Sikuli won't even start in true headless mode. Reference: answers.launchpad.net/sikuli/+question/239356

Sikuli is a great tool indeed, however, as I have already mentioned, it has many limitations. The biggest one is that it can't work in a headless mode.

Actually I have never utilized xquery in my tests. I will definitely have a look into that. Thanks for that input!

Hi and thanks a lot for your valuable input! Do you know where can I find any examples of such classes/wrappers? Will be great to have some reference.

comment Future of DOM based UI testing
That sounds interesting. It will be great if you could share some links pointing at this topic! A good example of a scenario that can get very painful is when there is an element that changes it's ID every time page is loaded and it's the only unique way to identify that element. The only way I found to work through cases like this is to create offsets based on another element. But that approach is essentially unreliable by itself.

comment Future of DOM based UI testing
Hi and thanks for your answer. When I mentioned DOM getting less reliable, I meant things like page elements get different names with every time the page is opened(rendered). That means I can't "attach" my driver to something stable. Can't agree with you more about Sikuli. I am using it quite extensively for more than a year and super happy with it. However, as you also mentioned, there are some limitations but then what tool doesn't have any? :)

comment How to use locator value in WebDriver?
Make sure your table looks exactly the same as the first time. Maybe the fact that you chose the first slot somehow changed the whole table.
