Announcing Selenium Tests Automation Framework

Selenium Tests Framework (referred as STF from here on) is a test automation framework for automated testing of Desktop web, mobile site and mobile apps. STF is based on WebDriver, Appium, TestNG and Maven. STF source code is available on GitHub.



Please NOTICE that if you are new to selenium then you should first watch Java Training Video Tutorials and Selenium Training Video Tutorials

STF supports following features - 

• Supports running tests on following environments - 

IE, Firefox, Chrome browsers on Windows, Ubuntu and Mac

mobile web site tests on android and ios devices

mobile app tests on android and ios devices


• Awesome Test Reports with step by step details of test actions -





    • Self instantiation of most popular browsers i.e. - Firefox, chrome and IE testing, you need not set up chrome or IE server, our framework does it for you. Self serve instantiation of web browsers, hence you don't have to set up browser  yourself. STF takes care of all.  Plugin STF and start writing you tests from day one! 


  • Capture snapshot and html source on test failure (because snapshot and html sources adds in debugging test failures)


    • Retrying failed test (because test environment inconsistency is not new to us and we want to make sure if a test fails consistently)

   • Data driven tests using csv file and more complex run time data objects using TestNG (because we don't want to run tests with same data set time and again)


   • Soft Asserting the failures to continue with test execution even in the wake of failures

   • Selenium grid support (don't we love cloud)


  • Rerun only failed tests using testng failed xml file once an application defect is fixed
  • Test dependency using testng dependent method because integration tests are at times dependent on one another

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.

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

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

Return only first or last element from webelements collection

We often come across situation when there are multiple elements on a page and we probably like to exercise only a few of them using selenium webdriver. May be just first and last element. For example on a search result page we may like to click on only first and last link and not all. This is when Iterables API comes handy. (By the way I am assuming that you have already completed watching selenium training videos :)). Once we have collection of web element then we can use Iterables to get only first or last element as following - Consider that we fetch collection of element as - List< WebElement > webElements = getDriver().findElements(By. id ( "htmlID" ));   Now we can get the first web element from this collection as -  WebElement firstElement = Iterables. getFirst (webElements,  getDriver().findElement(By. id ( "defaultElement" )));   Herein second argument -   (getDriver().findElement(By. id ( "defaultElement" )))    in the me
