Python Testing with Selenium: Learn to Implement Different Testing Techniques Using the Selenium Webdriver
Implement different testing techniques using Selenium WebDriver with the Python programming language. This quick reference provides simple functional test cases with a syntax-based approach for Selenium WebDriver.
You'll begin by reviewing the basics of Selenium WebDriver and its architectural design history and then move on to the configuration and installation of Selenium library for different web browsers, including the basic commands needed to start test scripts in various browsers. You'll review action commands of keyboard and mouse for testing user interactions in a web page and see how hyperlinks are tested.
The book also examines various web elements using eight different locators provided by Selenium to help you choose the one best suited to your needs. All Python scripts are ready to test real examples, all of which are explained thoroughly with problem statements. You'll use different Python design patterns to automate test scripts that can be incorporated with Selenium.
In the end, Python Testing with Selenium will provide you with the expertise to write your own test cases in future.
