When someone says I have Automated a EPUB/PDF file, it would bring a lot of joy to the people who manually test them, as there many factors to be considered for testing.
For a start we need to validate the EPUB file, verify the version and ensure whether the standards for the EPUB file are been followed for the respective version.
Followed by Content,alignment,font,text,indentation,images ..etc same goes with PDF as well. Its a tedious manual process,if we automate most of it then we are talking about a good ROI

Is it possible to automate? Yes, through Selenium with NodeJS.
Stay tuned to know who its implemented and where selenium comes into picture.

    Interesting. Why use Selenium for this? Are you downloading the file and then performing checks with Node? Or is there some kind of webview render you're using with Selenium?

      Here we use selenium for almost all purposes right from downloading the file, navigating the file, identifying the font styles been used in the file and other functionalities like pragraphing, table of contents ...etc using few Node.js libraries.

    Case Study
    Intermediate

    Our project was a classic example of Selenium gone wild! As our team embraced the test automation journey, we went crazy and implemented tons of Selenium tests, one for every permutation possible. Soon we realized our feedback cycles were delayed. Our builds were taking hours instead of minutes. And we had a set of complex, fragile tests, which resulted in a lot of false-negative scenarios and finger pointing.

    At this point, our team had realized that this is not the path forward. We decided to seriously look at our Selenium tests. We pretty much moved 80% of our Se tests to lower-layers (non-GUI based) tests. And now we have the right testing pyramid on our project.

    Join us, as we explain our journey (strategy, techniques, tools, mindset-change and approaches we took) through this transition.

    There is so much valuable data that Selenium Nodes writes into log file(s) when tests get executed on them. So much of this data is not mined for actionable intelligence.

    In this session, we will show you how operating system level metrics can be combined with data from Selenium nodes to result in rich actionable intelligence that will tremendously aid in the analysis of test failures, react to test execution flakiness, and to improve your automated test resiliency.

    The mobile world is growing, and it has never been easier to test applications—native, web, or hybrid—using Appium, a free, open-source implementation of the Selenium protocol for automating mobile devices. I will show how Appium, which is in active development and recently shipped version 1.0, allows developers and testers to harness all the power of the native testing frameworks provided by the mobile device manufacturers, but within the context familiar to Selenium users. 

    Further, Appium provides a very good opportunity for looking at the challenges for a technology designed to automate web browsers as it moves into a new realm. I will discuss how functionality was repurposed for this new context, as well as the ways in which the protocol was extended and made more flexible in light of the the expanded use case.

    As a case study in extended functionality, I will discuss the gesture API, which allows a standardized way to automate the sorts of advanced mutli-finger gestures used on modern mobile devices.

    Bhushan - Empower Selenium to automate non-HTML UI components

    30 Mins
    Demonstration
    Intermediate

    How do you user Selenium to test non-HTML UI components? By integrating Sikuli with Selenium we were able to solve this problem. In this demo, we would like to share our experience in increasing the automation scope to include non-HTML UI components with the help of Sikuli.

    Typically learning new tools to increase automation coverage is a challenge for Selenium users. Especially if those screens or components are not in the scope of Selenium locators (e.g. Non-HTML UI, Native Windows, Desktop Apps, SVG components etc.) Integration with Sikuli makes Selenium automation comprehensive. Sikuli complements Selenium capabilities, and integrates with Selenium seamlessly.

    We have empowered Selenium to identify non-HTML UI by extending Selenium locators (by.xpath, by.CSS) to identify the components with "by.image."

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Gone are the days where digital channels were few, predominantly web with one or two browsers. The scenario is different today, not only do we have multiple channels like web and mobile (iOS & Android), we also have different browsers and localization settings. In this scenario, the traditional testing models are rendered inefficient and at times even ineffective.

    Having worked with Global brands and delivered Omni-Channel Digital Testing for them over the years, we have developed a framework that makes this testing efficient and assures effectiveness.
    Valtech’s Digital Testing Framework uses PageObject-Design pattern for more maintainability, localization, environment compatibility (Selenium+Appium APIs), easy execution, user-friendly reporting and integration with CI and seamlessly aligns with Agile Methodology.

    If would like to know more, do attend our demo at the Selenium Conference 2014.

    Prabu - A Non-conventional automation approach to truly shift left by taking scripting out of the equation

    45 Mins
    Demonstration
    Beginner

    Organizations in their quest for accelerated and bug free software delivery are increasingly moving towards the use of Agile development methodology.
    However, maximizing the benefits of Agile software development requires software development and testing to begin concurrently. Agile specific challenges, such as frequently changing project scope, requirement of frequent builds to sustain rapid sprints, minimal documentation and the need for active stakeholder involvement makes development and maintenance of automation scripts all the more difficult.
    In our view, unlike the traditional automation approaches, a non-conventional approach that takes scripting out of the equation while continuing to provide the power and flexibility of a scripted approach can avoid these obstacles plaguing agile automation.
    In this session, we will present a live demo and talks about how wireframe-based navigation can be converted to automation scripts and then to Manual test cases.

    Shankar Garg - Best of Three Worlds: BDD(Cucumber-JVM),Selenium(Page-Obects) and Mobile Automation(Appium)

    30 Mins
    Demonstration
    Intermediate

    Appium's use for Mobile Automation has been growing rapidly in recent times and everyone who has used Appium has certainly fallen in love with it. Appium has made Mobile Test Automation so easy for both android and iOS platforms. I believe most people who have used Appium will agree with me till this point.

    But as the testing teams adopt Appium in Real life projects and they start implementing Appium for hundreds of tests that's when teams start to feel the heat. Appium in itself is sufficient to Automate the Mobile Apps but how to integrate Appium in the Test Framework, is the questions most testing teams realize late.

    We all know benefits and power of Cucumber, Page objects and Appium individually. To create a Robust and powerful Test Framework we thought of combining all three, thus the resulting framework can cater to the needs of different participants in SDLC.

    So the Objective of this session is to demonstrate how we can use Best of all three words and can create an Awesome Test Framework using Cucumber-JVM, Selenium Page Objects and Appium.
