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).

SeleniumCore is the powerful javascript toolkit for web applications "black-box" testing. It emulates different kinds of user actions such as: clicking the hyperlink, editing text in the input field, choosing item from the list and so on.

Using ERSelenium

You can use ERSelenium directly from workspace:


To run all tests point your browser to SeleniumStartTesting Direct Action:
http://baseurl/wa/SeleniumStartTestingImage Removed

Example: Removed

To run a specific group of tests, add "/TestGroupName":

Some tips for writing tests for ERSelenium

  • Don't use full URLs with open/openWindow commands (http://baseurlImage Removed part will be added by ERSelenium):
    Code Block
  • You can use setup/teardown methods from the class, specified in SeleniumActionsClass property by opening /wa/SeleniumAction/methodName URL, e.g.:
    Code Block
  • You can use @repeat-@values-@done metacommands to execute specific part of the test with additional values edited in textboxes, e.g.:
    Code Block
        ...some actions...
        @values user1 user2 user3
        @values pass1 pass2 pass3
        ...some more actions...
    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.
