Today’s fast-paced software development environments can create time and cost constraints that make it difficult to thoroughly test an application prior to release. Test automation allows teams to execute more tests in less time, increasing coverage and freeing human testers to do more high-level, exploratory testing. Automation is especially beneficial for test cases that are executed repeatedly, such as those for cross-browser and cross-device compatibility, and those that are part of a full or partial regression suite.
Selenium is a portable framework for testing web applications. It also provides a test domain-specific language to write tests in several popular programming languages, including C#, Groovy, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and Scala.
Micro Focus UFT provides automated testing of web, mobile, API, hybrid, RPA and enterprise apps. Reduce the cost, time spent & complexities of functional testing.
Cucumber is a testing framework which supports Behavior Driven Development (BDD). It lets us define application behavior in plain meaningful English text using a simple grammar defined by a language called Gherkin.
Page Object Model is an Object Repository design pattern in Selenium WebDriver. POM creates our testing code maintainable, reusable. Page Factory is an optimized way to create object repository in POM concept.
Behavior driven testing is an extension of TDD. Like in TDD in BDD also we write tests first and the add application code. The major difference that we get to see here are.
*Tests are written in plain descriptive English type grammar.
*Tests are explained as behavior of application and are more user focused.
*Using examples to clarify requirements.
Hybrid framework is a technique wherein we can make the best use of both Data Driven & Keyword Driven Selenium framework (s).
