Selenium HQ Review

It provides us simple objects recognition and multi-language support.

Valuable Features:

  • Simple objects recognition
  • It's easy to use
  • Multi-language support
  • Open source with good support
  • A lot of information and help online

Room for Improvement:

Selenium IDE needs to be improved not like just an record / play back tool, but as effective web elements spy. TestNG has more support, and also has ntegration with Appium and Jmeter which Selenium misses.

Use of Solution:

I've been using it for 10 years, since 2005.

Deployment Issues:

Throughout the last five years, I have not had any difficulty to install or set-up Webdriver.

Stability Issues:

This is an open source, so some issues are always pop[ing up , but compared to other open source automation tools web driver is much much better.

Scalability Issues:

It covers all regression testing with 20,000 test cases run during 24 hours and easy maintenance.

Customer Service:

Customer support is very good for a non-commercial tool.

Previous Solutions:

I used Silk Test and Win Runner previously. Borland SilkTest is an excellent tool, but it costs.

Initial Setup:

 It very straight forward and easy. Of course it’s required basic programming skills.

Implementation Team:

We have in house automation framework and it works great with continuous integration. I do not see reasons to pay for third party services.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

It's a free tool.

Other Advice:

Just use web driver and enjoy.
