I am new to Test automation and would like to try my hand at automating a web application project.
This web application gets its data from a desktop application (on syncing). I was thinking that selenium is the best approach to automate web side but there would be test cases where I need to use the desktop app here. (e.g. checking the sync changes coming from desktop app into web, validating the data, etc.) How best to combine both the desktop and web app automation? can we use selenium here?
Desktop application runs only on Window OS. (.exe application) Technology used: C#.
Web application is compatible with any browser (preferred - chrome, firefox). Technology used: Java.
