Mobile and Web Testing with Selenium WebDriver and Java

Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,

Discover the advantages of automated testing within software development

Selenium WebDriver performs cross-platform automated testing, using simple and easy to understand architecture.

Developing your Java programming skills before embarking on the fundamentals of Selenium WebDriver, this three-week course will examine how this object oriented programming language and web framework work together to optimise automated testing processes.

Enhance your understanding of Java frameworks

Over two-thirds of Selenium Testers use Java as their programming language of choice when running automated tests.

Before delving into Selenium Webdriver, this course first takes you through intermediary Java programming techniques. You’ll explore sets and maps, exception handling, and working with text and Excel files using Apache before looking at WebDriver in more detail.

With this knowledge, you’ll be able to better understand the testing processes within WebDriver using your fluency in Java as a solid foundation to build upon.

Explore the fundamentals of Selenium WebDriver

Using an example oriented approach, you’ll discover Selenium WebDriver concepts and be guided through the very basics of getting started with test automation.

You’ll gain an overview of WebDriver architecture before moving on to navigating HTML page structures using XPath.

Identify web elements using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) selectors

Towards the end of this course, you’ll be introduced to some of the most powerful tools within WebDriver, including CSS selectors.

By exploring specific tools in detail, you’ll be able to situate Selenium WebDriver’s various processes within your own testing workload.

By the end of this course, you’ll have developed an intermediate understanding of Java programming and know how to use this knowledge in conjunction with introductory processes of Selenium WebDriver.

This course is for developers with a fundamental knowledge of Java who want to improve testing processes across their web and mobile applications.
