September 4, 2009

I think this is usefull for yoh

This quickstart shows you how to start writing selenium tests with selenium and the selenium recorder (aka selenium-ide).

  1. You need to have the Firefox Browser version 1.5 or higher
  2. Proceed to http://www.openqa.org/selenium-ide/ and click on the link (Firefox Extension) to install the Selenium IDE firefox extension
  3. Restart firefox
  4. Click Tools -> Selenium IDE
  5. The selenium ide window will open
  6. It will start recording your actions in the browser.
  7. You can go ahead and go to a url and click on the links to see how the recorder records your actions.
  8. To disable recording while the recorder window is open, click the “red” button.
  9. Selenium verifies that a test or action is successful by checking the title or text in a webpage
  10. You can verify the title of the current page by right clicking on the webpage you are currently in and click Append Selenium -> verifyTitle
  11. You can verify the presence of text in a page by highlighting some text and then right click -> Append Selenium Command -> verifyTextPresent

Selenium IDE allows you to create, save, load and run tests right from firefox without having to install Selenium on the server.

To instal selenium on the server :

1. Download selenium from http://www.openqa.org/selenium-core/download.action
2. Choose to download the “Full Release”
3. After downloading, decompress the file.
4. You will see a folder selenium-x.x where “x.x” is the version of selenium you downloaded.
5. Go inside this folder and look for the “selenium” folder.
6. Copy this “selenium” folder to the openacsroot/www/ directory
7. Launch a browser and go to http://your_openacs_instance/selenium
