One Step At A Time

A session at Selenium Conference

Tuesday 17th April, 2012

10:00am to 10:35am (GMT)

Robust test automation frameworks are not designed and developed upfront, they are evolved over time. I have found it useful to have vision for a robust, scalable and reliable framework – but focus should be on solving the current problem. In this talk, I will demonstrate how we can start with simple, fragile test scripts and continuously re-factor them to build a robust framework. In every stage of re-factoring (or design improvement cycle), I will discuss – What are the limitations of current state of automation code / framework? – What design improvements might overcome those limitations? – How best they can be implemented with web driver? – Implement and repeat cycle. Talk will begin with a recorded / exported script and will evolve in a decent framework by implementing page objects, components, workflow, domain objects, asserters and so on.
