Java Training Tutorials for Software Testing Engineers

UPDATES: Java training tutorial with flavor of Selenium Webdriver are live now :)

The boundaries between software testing and development are beginning to blur in today’s technological environment. Knowledge of programming language would not just help you gain more knowledge in the field of software testing but also makes you more competitive in today’s job market.
When I started with Selenium Training Tutorial, I assumed that every one is from programming background. Many of you have asked me that it is very difficult for you to learn Selenium without knowledge of a programming language.
Hence I decided to create video tutorial in java, especially designed for software test engineers. Those software test engineers who have little or no programming experience. Learning one programming language would almost always make it easy for you to learn any other language.
But there is one condition :)

I would begin with java training tutorials when Software Testing forum on Facebook reaches 2000 likes. and ONLY YOU can help me achieve this -


It would be impossible to reach this target without your help. Please share 
FaceBook Testing Forum with software test Engineers on your Facebook/LinkedIn/Twitter/<Other Social Media Networks>. At the time of writing this post. There are about 300 likes on testing forum. Reaching more “likes” will help me take training program to more users free of cost.
While we are on the journey to reach 2000 likes I will continue to create testing videos in other fields of software testing.
So would you help me reach 2k likes for FaceBook Testing Forum ?

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

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.

XPath and single quotes

I had tough time dealing with XPath and single quote. Though W3C recommends using ' to escape it but I never got it working, let me know if any of you get through. Came across this blog and found that “concat” could be used in this situation. So original XPath expression is – //meta[@name=’DESCRIPTION’][@content=’Tester’s Test’] This is some thing which certainly fails as single quote in “Tester’s” marks it at end of string and then XPath blows up, next trial was – //meta[@name=’DESCRIPTION’][@content=’Tester''s Test’] This does not work despite w3c recommendation! And then I used concat function and split the string as – concat(‘Tester’,”’”,’s Test’) NOTICE that single quote is kept in double quote while other characters are kept in single quotes. So XPath looks as – //meta[@name=’DESCRIPTION’][@content=concat(‘Tester’,”’”,’s Test’)] And this works charm.
