Automating Functional Testing using Selenium
Follow us @technology_21st_century
In today’s highly competitive age, the market is getting flooded with loads of software and mobile apps that are launched and upgraded regularly. It becomes critical for a software or app to make a good first impression on the users without sacrificing the quality of the product. Just a single crash of your application can prompt your customers to move on to your competitors. To avoid such fickle user behavior and drive consumers, it is important to define a software testing strategy to present a bug-free software or app. This will make a long lasting impression on the users that caters to their instant gratifying nature.
What is Functional Testing?
Functional Testing means, to test the software application against the business requirements to ensure that all features are functioning as expected. As the users are now vertically focused, therefore, functional testing is executed based on the user’s perspective to confirm optimum coverage and minimize the risk of potential bugs. Functional Testing typically involves black box testing, where quality assurance experts focus only on software functionality without testing the internal code structure. This type of testing focuses only on software requirement and specification, i.e. the structure of the system is not considered; only the functionality and behavior of modules are tested. Functional Testing is critical to any software, as it verifies that it is ready for release.
What is Selenium?
Selenium is a web testing tool which uses simple scripts to run tests directly within a browser. In simple terms, “it automates browsers”. It is a portable software testing framework for web applications that provides a record/playback tool for authoring tests without learning a test scripting language (Selenium IDE). It also provides a test domain-specific language (Selenese) to write tests in a number of popular programming languages, including C#, Java, Groovy, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby.
