Introduction to Selenium is a hands-on web testing course, essential for experienced web developers and test engineers who need to verify web applications. This course introduces the student to the concepts and techniques of testing Web Application with the Selenium and Java. This hands-on class focuses on practical skills and best practices to ensure the student learns the ins and outs of Web Application testing with Selenium and Java. Selenium provides mechanisms for interacting with web pages through browsers, including locating and interacting with specific features within a web interface. A tool such as Selenium IDE or Katalon can be used to perform the testing in a relatively manual fashion. Selenium also comes with WebDriver, which provides a programmatic interface (API) for controlling and managing Selenium tests and interactions. WebDriver provides a mechanism for capturing and repeating tests with a web interface. In order to use WebDriver, developers must work with a programming language such as Java in order to control and manage the testing. This course focuses on using WebDriver and Java to control and manage the Selenium tests. As such, incoming students must know Java basics in order to design and implement WebDriver-based tests. There is no training on Java in this course. The materials progress through an introduction of JUnit and how Java and JUnit are used in conjunction with Selenium. That lesson is not intended to replace or provide the basic Java knowledge that is a pre-requisite for this course.

Skills Gained

Working in a hands-on environment led by our expert practitioner students will:

  • Understand web page testing needs and how Selenium meets those needs
  • Analyze a web application from a functional and testing perspective
  • Design, code, and run manual tests using the Katalon Recorder
  • Use Selenium constructs to locate elements on a web page
  • Test web page forms and the elements in those forms
  • Use test suites to organize and manage tests
  • Review Java constructs needed to by testers in working with WebDriver
  • Design code and run automated Selenium tests using the Java WebDriver API
  • Use the WebDriver API to test advanced web features such as delayed responses and Ajax
  • Using a combination of JUnit 5 features and WebDriver to consume streams of data for testing
  • Focus on Best Practices for Selenium testing using the Java WebDriver API

Who Can Benefit

This is an introductory -level Selenium course, designed for experienced web developers that are familiar with Java, who wish to get up and running on testing web applications. Ideally students should have approximately 6 months to a year of web development working knowledge.

  • NOTE: For some of the labs, attendees should have some familiarity with basic Java syntax prior to attending this class. Basic Java fundamentals are NOT covered this course. For attendees light on Java skills, code may be copied and pasted to complete those exercises.

Content is consistent with the class you enroll in. Instructor was thorough and engaging.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

Great instructor, but the format of the class could have been better. 7 hours of straight lecture followed by a small window of lab time isn't a good way to reinforce learned topics.

Course material is good, trainer is good. Suggest to review course coverage vis-a-vis the training timeline. For this one it seems coverage is more for 2 days.
