A Recipe Of Tools For Automation Testing

I started studying test automation using Selenium IDE, which is for the most part is a record-and-play tool. It was pretty easy to use, and all I needed to learn well is how to properly retrieve element locators. My needs changed since then – better test management, test reuse, better reporting, test scheduling – and so I had to learn many other things:

  • programming language: Java & Selenium Webdriver
  • development environment: Eclipse
  • testing and reporting framework: TestNG
  • test scheduling: Hudson/Jenkins Ant
  • test distribution: Selenium GridVirtualBox
  • code repository: GitHub

It certainly has been a lot of work but it’s been fun. And there’s a lot more to learn I haven’t even started studying mobile. 🙂
