In our last blog entry, we discussed the virtues of using a powerful tool called Selenium WebDriver to automate tests for browser-based web applications. This open-source tool allows developers and QA teams to write automated test scripts for today’s leading web browsers in a variety of programming languages such as Java, Python, Ruby and PHP. This software is incredibly useful, but it’s also just one component of the larger Selenium test automation suite.
Today we’ll take a moment to address another piece of the Selenium suite: Selenium IDE
Selenium IDE offers a complete integrated development environment that can be implemented as a browser extension in Chrome and Firefox. The IDE browser extensions make it easy to write and edit scripts, record and playback existing test scripts, debug scripts and more. It also features a helpful autocomplete function that supports all common Selenium commands.
With Selenium IDE, web apps can be seamlessly tested and debugged right from a browser.
This streamlined development environment is ideal for browser-based apps that require regular, rigorous testing. At Beta Breakers, we use the Selenium suite in addition to a number of other automation tools to deliver industry-leading continuous integration test solutions to our clients.
