Benefits of Selenium as Automation Testing tool

To ensure flawless user experience, it is an absolute essential to test the web applications. Constant changes have to be made to applications as well as websites; even the number of browsers supporting are increasing continuously. These facilitate the necessity of having efficient as well as effective test automation solution so that ongoing testing is made possible which leads to rapid bug isolation and ultimately exceptional performance.

The open source toolset called Selenium enables efficient as well as effective GUI or Graphical User Interface test automation for web applications. This set contains various software tools, all of which have various approaches in support of test automation. However, mostly engineers focus on one or at the most two tools to meet their project's needs. But learning about all of them offers a person with various options to approach varying problems since each has particular roles to play. Using this tool offers a multitude of benefits. Some of the notable features are given below.

One time scripting that can be run on multiple browsers- The benefits and features may not be the same with the same script running on multiple browsers, but it does save a lot of hassles. When testing the application on various browser versions, you will definitely feel the enormous advantage of running the same script sets in multiple browsers.

Choosing the language of your taste- With this advantage you get the indirect benefit of easy plugging into the engineering architecture. For example, those familiar with Java, can reap benefits of technical expertise as well as knowledge related to that topic. You can also take advantage of the various tools like reporting tools, build systems, IDE, etc used by your development branch. All you have to do is simply transfer the know-how to the QA team; in fact, in all probability they are already familiar with it.

Integration with ecosystem- If you need to integrate with various suite of tools such as QMetry, Hudson, etc you can easily avail of the solutions which are already out there, making the integration process easier. You do not need to make any investment for purchasing of tools; a test automation infrastructure can be easily created at par with commercial tool suites. If the tests have to be run in parallel, then also there are plenty of solutions available.
