I think we all agree that Selenium WebDriver has become the de facto framework for Web UI Automation. It could be TDD for greenfield or increasing the code coverage for brownfield, the importance of  automation tests to continuously deploy cannot be ignored. For years, testers have played with Selenium to make it work for their organization but the challenge is not having proper libraries around selenium which addresses all the following:

·         Easy setup and quick start with templates

·         Run tests with Multiple Datasets

·         Cloud Integration with Browser Stack and others

·         Capture screenshots and linking it with failed test step in the reports

·         Rerun failed test cases

·         Multi Parallel Execution

·         Email-able and HTML Reports

·         Ability for non-testers to run the automation suite

·         Clear separation of test and script failures

·         Focus on functionality rather than the configuration

I would like to present a light weight automation library “Omelet” built around Selenium which showcases the above feature set. This library is used in both greenfield and brownfield projects at our organization. Shall be open sourcing this library and source code will be available on github very soon…

    Whether you're just starting out, or are well on your way, there are more resources to dig through than you have time or know what to do with. With blogs, videos, documentation, forums, meetups, conferences, books, and mailing lists, the signal to noise ratio is all out of whack. In 30 minutes, I'll be your tour guide as I walk you through the information landscape of Selenium and show you which resources are worthwhile for your context and how to find them.

    Many Functional Testing/QA Engineers don't have insights into Security vulnerabilities. Usually an enterprise has a separate security testing team solely for that task and functional testers have to rely on them for the security audit.
     
    Security is an important part of Testing but not every build of the application is tested for security issues. All Functional testing teams have a load of automated test cases which are run on every build of the application but they don't check for security flaws.
     
    In this talk we would be showing how you can use your existing test cases and automatically perform security testing on your web application. This is made possible using IronWASP, an open source security scanner and its companion libraries.
     
    If you are a software tester or developer even without any security expertise this talk will help you secure your web application better using your existing functional test cases.

    As the WWW morphed from a system of interlinked hypertext documents to an advanced application delivery platform, the requirements on the underlining technologies and the browsers implementing them changed dramatically.

    To ensure correctness in behaviour and that application code works across multiple browsers, standards come equipped with test suites.  But interoperability can only be guaranteed by a more thorough testing effort.  The W3C has launched a new project called Test the Web Forward to bridge this gap, and WebDriver sits at its centrepiece.

    The talk will focus on the infrastructure that is being created to run these tests, and exemplify how the WebDriver library can be utilized in a complex and untraditional test running framework.  It will also give a glance into the ongoing W3C WebDriver specification work, and where we are headed.

    UI-tests are not really stable. Some sync point might be missed and tests will be red from time to time without any obvious reason. Or accidentally some focus might go away and button will not be clicked. These and other cases make automated testing results unpredictable and these results are not trusted. 

    In my speech I want to share the experience how to reach reliable and reproducible results with Selenium tests. In order to reach it we should sacrifice to 100% end user emulation. The presentation is based on the real project where this idea was successful. Also more common recommendations will be given publicity.

    Many challenging aspects need to be considered when running your Selenium test suite on real mobile browsers: choosing the right Selenium library, emulators vs. real devices, 24x7 local device infrastructure availability, unsupported features, pop-ups, etc. Do the benefits outweigh the effort?

    We first talk about how to test effectively on mobile browsers using Selenium. The problems we have faced with mobile emulators, and why we are scrapping them in favour of a real mobile devices cloud of Selenium nodes. Then this is followed by a demo on how to execute your tests on iOS and Android devices. Learn how to set up a real mobile devices cloud from scratch; when we will also discuss how to run health checks for your cloud, and troubleshoot properly.

    Our expertise comes from building a real iOS and Android device cloud for our customers, looking to get accurate results from testing - something to be had only from actual devices and not just emulators.

    Writing tests for modern websites is quite tricky. And systems that have device-browser interaction, challenge test engineers even more.

    In this talk I'll show how we use Clojure to solve problems of functional and integration testing for mobile and web applications, at Helpshift.

    We use wrappers and libraries written in Clojure to leverage well known tools such as Calabash for Android, Appium for iOS, and Selenium WebDriver for the web.

    Clojure is a powerful modern Lisp. In this talk, I hope to show how we benefit from many of its features, including fast, interactive REPL oriented development, rich set of data structures, and the power of macros.

    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.

    Many a time the same locator in your automated script does not work well at all in all browsers/versions and operating systems or works but with flaky results in some browsers/versions. And then numerous hours are spent using a trial and error approach to either continue the hunt for a different locator that works across the board or build “if-browser/version-use-this-locator” kind of logic in your test scripts. 

    In this session, we will show you an approach that will help you eliminate so much pain and cost from your cross browser test automation.

    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.

    It's pretty cool to have selenium test results clear to everyone on the team. There are lots of frameworks in every language that aim to simplify test writing. But only few can provide sharp presentation of test execution output. Yandex team is working on Allure (https://github.com/allure-framework/allure-core/wiki) - an open-source framework designed to create crystal clear reports. Because of module structure it integrates easily with almost any testing tool, no matter which language you use.

    Selenium tests can quickly grow in size and could become difficult to maintain, unless adhered to DRY principles to the extreme. Geb is built on top of Selenium WebDriver, which brings in the expressive power of groovy to WebDriver API. Geb can be used for all browser automation tasks that can be achieved with WebDriver. This talk will show how Geb can help us to write concise tests that are highly readable. 

    Prior knowledge of Groovy is NOT essential to get started with Geb, however would be helpful in advanced use cases.

    Microsoft. Just the name of the company alone can send some open-source software activists into fits of apoplexy. From the days when executives of the company compared open-source software to "a virus", the company has been seen as incredibly hostile to open-source software. It is surprising how much has changed over the years.

    This is the story of how the Selenium project has managed its relationship with the software company, from the initial, tentative, often contentious and borderline hostile reaching out, to today's open engagement. The story is told through the prism of the Internet Explorer Driver project, with slight digressions to the .NET bindings and other Microsoft technology stacks. The journey is funny, sometimes frustrating, but always entertaining, and there may be a surprise announcement or two.

    ExtJS is a web development framework used for developing next generation web based UIs. In ExtJs the object Id's are dynamic in nature, the object id's are not static everytime the object is rendered in UI. The challenge is to automate UI functionality when the objects are dynamic. Extjs does not recommend assigning static html-ids to objects for web application development.

    Would like to share our experience how selenium webdriver with java has been leveraged in retrieving those dynamic Id's at run-time and perform operations on those objects. A way for test automation on an web application which is developed using ExtJS framework which generates the dynamic html-ids.

    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."
