Selenium Function Library

Poornima and I built collection of java Classes for selenium which provide capabilities which are not built in Selenium like - HTML Table Parsing, Custom Verification, Logging to name a few. This project is been existent from some time now, though I never had chance to write up on this. Whole project is available under "Repository" section of Veda for "Testing Competency" project and can be opened using java IDE like Eclipe.
Best way to get acquainted with this API is to generate java doc your self which is no more than child's play.
Make sure you have java 1.5 or higher and ANT 1.7.0
Configure System variable for Java and ANT, once having done this u should be able to see version of java and ant on your console on doing - "java-version" and "ant -verison"
On Console navigate to path where Sel Library is check out, it turns out to be following for me -
"D:\SelFunctionLibrary\SeleniumFunctionLibrary>"
Execute following ANT Target -
D:\SelFunctionLibrary\SeleniumFunctionLibrary>ant -buildfile build.xml javadoc
This will build java doc files in "javadoc" folder of Sel library, which describes package, methods and classes available in Sel Library. These files are in html format and can be easily opened using browser. You should see following out put on execution ANT Target -

How can you save resources when instantiaing driver?

I asked on my previous post about what was wrong in instantiating driver on set up method? And here is the solution video on my YouTube channel (After 5 years of gap I finally added new video tutorial :)) The solution described on video tutorial uses following set up - public class BaseClassOnDemandDriverSetup { private WebDriver driver ; @BeforeMethod public void setupTest () { // Any other set up goes here } @AfterMethod public void teardown () { if ( driver != null ) { driver .quit() ; } } public WebDriver getDriver () { if ( driver == null ) { WebDriverManager. chromedriver ().setup() ; driver = new ChromeDriver() ; } return driver ; } }

Security Testing and Selenium

I have come across many articles which talk of carrying out security testing with selenium however I found it very cumbersome to set up such tests. This is what this tutorial is going to make easy for you. It cover. My next Security Testing and Selenium YouTube video covers following - Importance of having security testing on CI What is dynamic application security testing Recommended tools from https://owasp.org/www-community/Vulnerability_Scanning_Tools What is https://owasp.org/ ?   Using https://www.zaproxy.org/    Project setup  <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap-clientapi </artifactId> <version> 1.9.0 </version> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId> org.zaproxy </groupId> <artifactId> zap </artifactId> <version> 2.10.0 </version> </dependency> Start ZAP daemom (headless) mode  ./zap.sh -daemon -host 127.0.0.1 -port 8080 -config api.addrs.a

Using chrome console to test xPath and css selectors

Since the advent of selenium there have been many plugin to test xPath / css selectors but you don’t need any of them if you have chrome browser. Using Chrome console you can test both xPath and css selectors. Launch website to be tested in chrome browser and hit F-12 and you would see chrome console opened in lower pane of application - Hit escape key and console would open another pane to write element locators - And now you can start writing xPath or css selectors in chrome console and test them - The syntax for writing css id - $$(“ ”) And hit the enter key. If your expression is right then html snippet of the application element corresponding to the css selector would be displayed - If you mouse over the html snippet in chrome console then it would highlight the corresponding element in application - If you want to clean console of previously written element selectors then just hit ctrl+L keys and chrome console would be empty again.
