Executing tests internally, running nodes on the hub. Running tests externally, such as on SauceLabs.
- [Narrator] Welcome to the second video of this section.…In the previous video, we got familiar with…the Selenium Server,…and downloaded it for testing.…This video will help us dive into it,…and see how it works.…In this video, we will start by registering a node,…and then move ahead by running the server…both locally, and on remote browser.…In the previous video, we started the hub,…but we can't really use it for anything.…We will have to attach one or more nodes to it.…
A node may be one computer, and possibly, many browsers.…Each computer can, for instance, host…a few Firefox instances.…They can never host more than one Internet Explorer,…since only one I-E version can be installed at any time…on a Windows system.…Now is the time to register a node.…Before registering a node,…let us start the hub.…Go to the directory where Selenium Server jar file…is located,…and execute the following command.…
Java dash jar, selenium dash server dash standalone…dash two point four eight point two point jar…dash role hub.…So now Selenium-Grid hub is up and running.…
Selenium gives developers the power to control web browsers and use them to automate web application testing. As an open-source toolset, Selenium makes it easier for testers to evaluate web applications without putting in any extra time and effort.
Mastering Selenium Testing Tools is all about demystifying the Selenium suite. Learn to verify web applications, control browsers with code, and scale up the testing environment by distributing the execution of web applications on different browsers running on different operating systems.
Author Ripon Al Wasim starts with the Selenium IDE, a Firefox plugin that performs a simple record-and-playback of interactions with the browser. A tester aiming for professional output can use WebDriver, an advanced scripting tool that allows you to locate the elements you need to interact with using their name: id, xPath, or CSS. Next, learn to express the desired behavior using a well-known framework for behavior-driven development (BDD) called Cucumber for Java, which uses a language called Gherkin. Last but not least, Ripon shows how to run tests on the Selenium Server, and walks through a complete working example of Selenium and Cucumber in action, for acceptance testing of a web application.
