Does front-end based test automation work? It definitely does, and it works well, when designed and implemented properly. In this course, we will learn how to do just that.
More often than not, people say that the main problem with this technology is the maintenance. And these people are right. We struggle when the tested system changes, making our tests obsolete. These changes are inevitable and cause maintenance overhead that can lead to the failure of test automation projects.
It’s naïve to say the overhead is simply too high. So after learning the basics we’ll move on to more advanced structuring of the tests. Resulting in minimizing this overhead and allowing us to write well-structured and economic code.
In the course, we will use the Selenium WebDriver framework – a known and reliable open-source solution for automated tests. Besides the structuring concepts, we will also learn WebDriver API and good patterns. And finally how to combine WebDriver with JUnit framework to run our tests.
We’ll do all this via interactive practical examples. Course participants will develop their own test code and use it on prepared examples. All with the support of two experienced test automation specialists with a rich background in various test automation projects.
