Really Quick Start
- Checkout the Project Wonder - the ERSelenium is in the Wonder/Common/Frameworks folder.
- Examine test cases from ERSeleniumExample/Resources/Selenium/main/ and from BugTracker in Eclipse text editor.
- Launch ERSeleniumExample and point your browser (referably FireFox - there are known issues with Safari) to SeleniumStartTesting Direct Action url (e.g. http://192.168.0.58/cgi-bin/WebObjects/ERSeleniumExample.woa/-42422/wa/SeleniumStartTesting).
- Launch FireFox and install Selenium IDE Firefox plugin.
- Using Selenium IDE format plugin installation instructions install Selenese-ide-plugin.js (it is in ERSelenium/Resources).
- Play around with test cases from ERSeleniumExample/Resources/Selenium/ using Selenium IDE.
Overview and Usage Notes
ERSelenium provides several features for effective use of SeleniumCore with WebObjects applications including:
- Custom setup/teardown actions that can be run before/after each test.
- Base URL independence.
- Support of HTML and Selenese test formats (Java support is planned).
- "On-the-fly" generation of test suites from the files in your project's source tree.
- Bookmarkable DirectAction url to run all tests (can be used for automated testing).
- Metacommands (special instructions specified in comments).
You can use ERSelenium directly from workspace:
To run all tests point your browser to SeleniumStartTesting Direct Action:
Some tips for writing tests for ERSelenium
- Don't use full URLs with open/openWindow commands (http://baseurl part will be added by ERSelenium):
- You can use setup/teardown methods from the class, specified in SeleniumActionsClass property by opening /wa/SeleniumAction/methodName URL, e.g.:
- You can use @repeat-@values-@done metacommands to execute specific part of the test with additional values edited in textboxes, e.g.:
The commands between @repeat and @done will be repeated several times, each time with new value in "user" and "password" input field. The values are seperated by spaces and if you have multiple @values lines, they all must have the same number of parameters. The @values section applies to the value of the next command.
@repeat ...some actions... @values user1 user2 user3 |type|user|user0| @values pass1 pass2 pass3 |type|password|pass0| ...some more actions... @done
