Selenium Automation Framework / Reusbale Functions / Library

I have had hunch about this from long and finally I am going to work on it. As the name suggests I would be developing Selenium library which could be plugged in and used for web UI automation. And I would be working on Java Selenium client, that is Selenium 1.0 and would extend it for Selenium 2.0. So here is my wish list what I would take up for this -

  1. Writing Safe Selenium api which checks for presence of element before carrying out operation
  2. File read and write operation - using text/excel/csv
  3. HTML parsing, i.e. reading number of rows in table, get table data etc. Such methods are very popular in QTP world and there is no inbuilt api in Selenium for same.
  4. Having the capability to use external object repo containing application object
  5. Soft assertion using selenium so your test execution continues even in the wake of errors and reports errors at last
  6. And many more....
 Do you also have a wish list? What would you like to be added to this library?

Updates -

I have decided to implement these features for Java as well as C#. Though my preference is java.
I would also be abstracting methods for selenium 1 and 2 to make them more comprehensible....

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

Note: If you are new to java and selenium then start with selenium java training videos .     Email confirmation seems to be integral part of any registration process. I came across an application which lets you provide your email address. You can follow the sign up link in you mail and then complete the registration process. Lets consider we provide GMail address for it. Now if were to use only Selenium then we would have to follow following steps - Launch GMail using Selenium; Some how search for new mail in the list of available mails; Some how click on it; Parse the mail message; Get the registration link; Follow up with registration process What do you think of an approach in which you can

Distributed Load Testing with JMeter

Distributed Testing with JMeter When one JMeter client is not able to offer amount of threads required for load testing then distributed testing is used. In distributed testing - One instance of JMeter client can control number of JMeter instances and collect data from them Test plan does not need to be copied to each server, the client sends it to all servers note - JMeter will run all the threads on all the servers, hence 100 threads on 5 JMeter server would pump 500 threads in total. If many server instances are used, the client JMeter can become overloaded and so the client network connection. This has been improved in latest versions of JMeter by switching to Stripped modes, but you should always check that your client is not overloaded When Client (master) and Server (slave) nodes are on same network (no SSH required) Configure Client Node Herein client is referred as the machine controlling test execution on other JMeter nodes. This is also referred
