Selenium-WebDriver Course


Selenium Web Driver Course Overview

Selenium-WebDriver was developed to better support dynamic web pages where elements of a page may change without the page itself being reloaded. WebDriver’s goal is to supply a well-designed object-oriented API that provides improved support for modern advanced web-app testing problems.

For those familiar with Selenium-RC, this is quite different from what you are used to. Selenium-RC worked the same way for each supported browser. It ‘injected’ JavaScript functions into the browser when the browser was loaded and then used its JavaScript to drive the AUT within the browser. WebDriver does not use this technique. Again, it drives the browser directly using the browser’s built in support for automation.

Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser’s native support for automation. How these direct calls are made, and the features they support depends on the browser you are using. Information on each ‘browser driver’ is provided in the course.

Individuals who are interested can take up the course as well as Quality Assurance Professionals, DevOps Professional, Developers, System Integrator.

Experience and/or knowledge with a previous automated performance testing tool with some basic programming.

After completion of course you will get jobs as Test analyst, Automation tester in the companies like IGate, SAP, Microsoft, Global data and more.

The main topics covered in the course are Introduction to Selenium 2.0 and WebDriver, JAVA, Eclipse IDE and Junit, Selenium-IDE, Selenium Commands, Selenium WebDriver and Selenium RC, Automation Framework Development & Usage, Selenium Grid and more.
