I want to set Eclipse, Selenium and our projects at some central level from where other tester can access code, modify code, update code etc.

Until now I was alone doing automation scripting to my local pc using Selenium and Java in Eclipse. Now we have multiple testers that do automation scripting. So I want something like a server. How can I set up this?

Put all the tests into a code version control system. Preferable in the same version control system as the application under test works with. This way the tests are version-ed with the code it tests. This way you could go back in time and build the application and run the tests against it. You will need this if you need to support multiple versions of the application.

The GIT version control system has a free course at code school to get you started.

If your team is distributed have a look at online/hosted version control systems like:

For local version control systems look at:

Also why do I need version control? Read this blog post. (I even use version control when working alone, always!)

  • Thank you so much , But here I am using eclipse and Java so can I use TFS? Because I thought only asp.net developers use TFS to manage distributed code. Jul 30, 2015 at 8:18
  • TFVC part of TFS can store any code also Java code. Version control systems are language/IDE in-depended. For eclipse + tfs read: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh913026.aspx If your teams uses C#/.Net why not also write the tests in that language? That way the Dev team can help you guys better! :) Jul 30, 2015 at 8:20
