  • Beginner’s Guide To Test Automation With Java (TestUI)
    4 projects | | 19 Jan 2023
    TestUI combines 2 different paradigm test automation frameworks, i.e., mobile (Appium) and desktop (Selenide), into one neat framework. In our opinion, it’s a great framework that offers vast functionality with easy-to-learn syntax, not to mention full access to Selenide methods in case something tricky needs to be done.

    Selenide – A wrapper for Selenium, Selenide consists of many other tools, including Selenium, WebdriverManager, and BrowserUp Proxy. Selenide is well-organized and comes with good documentation and a large community. It enables you to simplify complex tasks, for example: file download, autostart and autostop of the browser, using a proxy, etc. Though it officially supports only Java, there is also an unofficial port in Python called Selene.

  • Is there a framework that you use?
    2 projects | | 18 May 2021
    Is there a working framework that you use in your daily work? I've written my little framework (Java,TestNG). Simple singleton with a bunch of services (Actions, Robot, Waiters etc). And then I've found this and this. I've tried examples. Google search in both cases. Understood nothing. Read some docs. Didn't benefit. But these guys are right, selenium webdriver is just a webdriver. You have to write a decent amount of wrapper code. I mean. We have a lot of great frameworks almost in any given field, but when it comes to testing there is no "out of the box" running fw. Hell. You can get a fully-running web-site in a day using Laravel or Spring Boot.
