There are many frameworks like Data Driven Framework, Keyword Driven Framework, and Hybrid Framework which use Junit tool as test runner and which will help to start the batch execution and reporting. Junit assertions are used to validate certain condition and stops execution of program if the conditions are not satisfied.
JUnit assertEquals: This checks if the two values are equal and assertion fails if both values are not equal.
JUnit assertTrue: Returns true if the condition is true and assertion fails if the condition is false. JUnit assertFalse: Returns true if the condition is false and assertion fails if the condition is true.
More detail about framework and use of Junit annotations will be discussed in upcoming tutorial which is dedicated exclusively for framework design using Junit.
Next Tutorial #12: In next tutorial we would discuss all about TestNG, its features and its applications.

I would like to express my gratitude to the following people who provided me with help and support through out this project. In the last few Selenium tutorials, we discussed about various commonly and popularly used commands in WebDriver, handling web elements like Web Tables, Frames and handling exceptions in Selenium scripts. We discussed each of these commands with sample code snippets and examples so as to make you capable of using these commands effectively whenever you are encountered with similar situations. As we move ahead in the Selenium series, we would concentrate our focus towards Automation Framework creation in the next few upcoming tutorials. A framework is considered to be a combination of set protocols, rules, standards and guidelines that can be incorporated or followed as a whole so as to leverage the benefits of the scaffolding provided by the Framework. Keep a check on the maximum capacity of the elevator and do not get onto an elevator if the maximum capacity has reached. Allow the passenger to get off the elevator if any before entering the elevator and stand clear off the doors.
In case of fire in the building or if there is any haphazard situation, avoid the use of elevator. Now, as we are talking about “Test Automation Frameworks”, let us move our focus towards them.
A “Test Automation Framework” is scaffolding that is laid to provide an execution environment for the automation test scripts. In a very simple language, we can say that a framework is a constructive blend of various guidelines, coding standards, concepts, processes, practices, project hierarchies, modularity, reporting mechanism, test data injections etc. The advantages can be in different forms like ease of scripting, scalability, modularity, understandability, process definition, re-usability, cost, maintenance etc. Now that we have a basic idea of what is an Automation Framework, in this section we would harbinger you with the various types of Test Automation Frameworks those are available in the market place. Module based Testing Framework is based on one of the popularly known OOPs concept – Abstraction.
These modules are separated by an abstraction layer in such a way that the changes made in the sections of the application doesn’t yields affects on this module. The framework introduces high level of modularization which leads to easier and cost efficient maintenance. If the changes are implemented in one part of the application, only the test script representing that part of the application needs to be fixed leaving all the other parts untouched. While implementing test scripts for each module separately, we embed the test data (Data with which we are supposed to perform testing) into the test scripts.
The Library Architecture Testing Framework is fundamentally and foundationally built on Module Based Testing Framework with some additional advantages. The basic fundamental behind the framework is to determine the common steps and group them into functions under a library and call those functions in the test scripts whenever required.
Like Module Based Framework, this framework also introduces high level of modularization which leads to easier and cost efficient maintenance and scalability too. As we create common functions that can be efficiently used by the various test scripts across the Framework. Like Module Based Framework, the test data is lodged into the test scripts, thus any change in the test data would require changes in the test script as well. While automating or testing any application, at times it may be required to test the same functionality multiple times with the different set of input data. Data Driven Testing Framework helps the user segregate the test script logic and the test data from each other. Note: The test data stored in an external file can belong to the matrix of expected value as well as matrix of input values. Step 1: First and the foremost step are to create an external file that stores the test data (Input data and Expected Data). The above method helps to read the test data and the below test step helps the user to type in the test data on the GUI. The most important feature of this framework is that it considerably reduces the total number of scripts required to cover all the possible combinations of test scenarios. The process is complex and requires an extra effort to come up with the test data sources and reading mechanisms.
The Keyword driven testing framework is an extension to Data driven Testing Framework in a sense that it not only segregates the test data from the scripts, it also keeps the certain set of code belonging to the test script into an external data file.
The keywords and the test data are stored in a tabular like structure and thus it is also popularly regarded as Table driven Framework. In the above example keywords like login, clickLink and verifyLink are defined within the code. In addition to advantages provided by Data Driven testing, Keyword driven framework doesn’t require the user to possess scripting knowledge unlike Data Driven Testing. The user should be well versed with the Keyword creation mechanism to be able to efficiently leverage the benefits provided by the framework. The framework becomes complicated gradually as it grows and a number of new keywords are introduced. As the name suggests, the Hybrid Testing Framework is a combination of more than one above mentioned frameworks.


In the above example, keyword column contains all the required keywords used in the particular test case and data column drives all the data required in the test scenario. Behavior Driven Development framework allows automation of functional validations in easily readable and understandable format to Business Analysts, Developers, Testers, etc. Though the above pictorial representation of a framework is self-explanatory but we would still highlight a few points. Object Repository: Object Repository acronym as OR is constituted of the set of locators types associated with web elements.
Test Data: The input data with which the scenario would be tested and it can be the expected values with which the actual results would be compared. Build tools and Continuous Integration: These are the tools that aids to the frameworks capabilities to generate test reports, email notifications and logging information. The frameworks illustrated above are the most popular frameworks used by the testing fraternity. Next Tutorial #21: In the next tutorial, we would briefly introduce you with the sample framework, the MS Excel which would store the test data, excel manipulations etc. I’ve a question, I fwe want to secure our Framework scripts from being disclosed by any another party, is this possible? Is there any post regarding test automation frame work which completely deals with scripting languages like python.
Hi thanks for sharing this, iT was really good to know about something which we already know but dont know the definiton of it. The only suggestion I can offer is that the content can be further improved through a bit of editing, such as choice of words and sentence structure. Here we have described few annotations which are used very frequently in Selenium scripts and framework.
TestNG is an advance framework designed in a way to leverage the benefits by both the developers and testers. Facebook Twitter Google Plus Pinterest LinkedIn Before starting the automation using any automation tool, it is very important to know how that tool works and how it is architecture. Fig 2 Compose and send mail To automate the test cases for such web applications, We usually write the methods that perform specific task.
Description about the reports are generated in selenium webdriver: So far we had been doing Selenium tests without generating a proper format for the test results.
Department of Computer Science and Engineering California State University San Bernardino Jinsok Chae, Ph.D. Amongst the commands we discussed in the previous tutorial, few of them owe utmost importance.
We would also shed light on various aspects of an Automation framework, types of Automation frameworks, benefits of using a framework and the basic components that constitutes an Automation framework. There are a few guidelines those are mentioned within the elevator to be followed and taken care off so as to leverage the maximum benefit and prolonged service from the system. Thus, these guidelines if followed, makes the system more beneficial, accessible, scalable and less troubled for the users. The framework provides the user with various benefits that helps them to develop, execute and report the automation test scripts efficiently.
Thus, to be able to grab these benefits, developers are advised to use one or more of the Test Automation Framework. These frameworks may differ from each other based on their support to different key factors to do automation like reusability, ease of maintenance etc. The framework divides the entire “Application Under Test” into number of logical and isolated modules. Thus, whenever we are supposed to test with a different set of test data, it requires the manipulations to be made in the test scripts.
Instead of dividing the application under test into test scripts, we segregate the application into functions or rather common functions can be used by the other parts of the application as well. Thus all the test scripts those require to login the application can call that function instead of writing the code all over again. Take a notice that keywords and test data are entities independent of the automation tool being used. The best thing about such a setup is that it leverages the benefits of all kinds of associated frameworks.
Such frameworks do not necessarily require the user to be acquainted with programming language. This will helps to take the good advantage of the tool at the same time it will helps to make right automation framework. For example we may write the Excel_IO method in Java which will call connection function for creating a connection string with the excel sheets and we may write fillscreen method to write something in textbox like username or password.
From this point on, we shall tackle how to make these reports using a test framework called TestNG.
Thus, user can follow these guidelines while automating application to take advantages of various productive results.
Thus we create a common library constituting of common functions for the application under test. Hence it is advised to retain test data into some external data base outside the test scripts.
The external databases can be property files, xml files, excel files, text files, CSV files, ODBC repositories etc. Locator column contains the locator value that is used to identify the web elements on the screen or the test data that needs to be supplied. My own definition also includes testing resource management, artifact management, onboarding training for new resources, lab resource management, coding standards, crisis management, prioritization policies, documentation procedures, test data management, and just so much more. Here we have also described commonly used annotations used with selenium scripts and framework.
NOt sure about next steps as it is not clear and you have direclty started Annotations with no information about if it needs to be added to new program or the programs you have described in previous chapters. Without frameworks we will place all our code and data in same place which is neither re-usable nor readable. In my further posts I will start explain how to use selenium and how to create selenium framework in details but before that let’s get an overview of Selenium webdriver architecture. 5) Main driver script in Selenium webdriver automation framework: This is the main method and starting point for the framework code. Thus, when these test scripts taken together builds a larger test script representing more than one modules. It would have been nice if you could provide complete program (with import required ) for the program and all in this tutorial. Using Frameworks, produce beneficial outcomes like increase code re-usage , higher portability , reduced script maintenance cost etc There are mainly three type of frameworks created by Selenium WebDriver to automate manual testcases Data Driven Test Framework Keyword Driven Test Framework Hybrid Test Framework Data Driven Test Framework In data driven framework all of our test data is generated from some external files like excel, csv, XML or some database table. The advantage of creating methods is that we can re-use these methods in multiple test cases with different input test data.this speeds up the automation process with increased productivity. As a beginner you will find how simply you can record and play the selenium scripts but it is not straight forward to how it’s doing that.

Automation Testing is the use of testing tools and reduce the need of manual or human involvement, repetitive or redundant tasks. The Objective of this thesis is to perform Automation Testing for web applications using Software Testing Tool Selenium Webdriver.
Each keyword driven automation framework has some common components as mentioned below[11].
In simple words these the languages in which are making an framework, will interact with the Selenium Webdriver and work on various browsers and other devices. With this web testing tool, I have developed keyword driven framework that means instead of writing multiple functions to automate driven website, we have abstracted those functions to excel files and in that excel file we are giving the steps and the program written is going to drive best on the data excel set. TestNG is a testing framework that is capable of making Selenium tests easier to understand and of generate reports that are easy to understand. So we have a common API that we use for Selenium that has a common set of commands and we have various bindings for the different languages. In this way with this web testing tool, test cases are automatically tested by using Keyword driven framework. Now the AUT can have hundreds of button on a page, to identify a Login button, in excel we will input Object Name as loginButton & object type as name (see highlighted row in above image). Keywords-- Software Testing, Automation testing, Selenium webdriver, Keyword driven, Eclispe.
Reports in HTML format Main Java driver script 1) Java Class Library with functionality specific methods: As explained earlier, we can create methods for each functionality in the application like select, fillscreen etc.
RESULTS AND DISSCUSSIONS First the various test scenario s for gmail application will be tested and the reports will be generated. 2) Selenium Webdriver API: Now these bindings communicate with Selenium Webdriver API and and This API send the commands taken from language level bindings interpret it and sent it to Respective driver. 2) Test Data Sheet in Selenium Webdriver framework: As displayed in below figure, the data sheet contains below columns.
INTRODUCTION Automation Testing is the use of testing tools and reduce the need of manual or human involvement, repetitive or redundant tasks. Selenium is a tool designed to generate automated tests and enhance the testing performance. In basic term it contains set of common library which allow to send command to respective drivers. Automated testing is used by software developer to save time and resources.selenium is an open source automation testing tool for web based applications.
3) Drivers: Drivers here at the right hand side, you see we have various internet browser specific drivers such as IE driver, a Firefox, Chrome, and other drivers such as HTML unit which is an interesting one. It runs directly on browser and supports almost all available browsers such as Firefox, chrome, IE, Opera, Safari etc. The sequence of actions is regulated by easy to understand annotations that do not require methods to be static. Uncaught exceptions are automatically handled by TestNG without terminating the test prematurely.
But the basic idea here is that each one of these drivers knows how to drive the browser that it corresponds to. It is really strong as compare to other available automation tools and is very flexible and simple to use. So the Chrome driver knows how to handle the low level details of Chome browser and drive it to do things like clicking button, going into pages, getting data from the browser itself, the same thing for Firefox, IE, and so on.
There are many languages supported in Selenium but the language in which your program is built is independent of the language being used by the website or the web based application, that means, if your website is build in Java then you can use selenium with mentioned languages and create your test scripts in any of these languages. The Console window in Eclipse generates a text-based result while the TestNG window is more useful because it gives us a graphical output of the test result plus other meaningful details such as: Runtimes of each method.
Selenium is a browser automation tool, commonly used for writing end-to-end tests of web applications. A browser automation tool does exactly what you would expect: automate the control of a browser so that repetitive tasks can be automated. It sounds like a simple problem to solve, but as we will see, a lot has to happen behind the scenes to make it work. Before describing the architecture of Selenium it helps to understand how the various related pieces of the project fit together. The first of these tools, Selenium IDE, is an extension for Firefox that allows users to record and playback tests. These test reports also contains the execution time taken by particular method and also contains the screen shots of method.
This provides report details for which test scripts have failed or passed while running a test suite. The final tool, Selenium Grid, makes it possible to use the Selenium APIs to control browser instances distributed over a grid of machines, allowing more tests to run in parallel.
Selenium is a browser automation tool which lets you automated operations like: type,click,and selection from a drop down of a web page.
Selenium provides a rich set of testing functions specifically geared to the needs of testing of a web application. These operations are highly flexible, allowing many options for locating UI elements.one of Selenium s key features is the support for executing one s tests on multiple browser platforms. CONCLUSION Selenium is a framework comprises of many tools used for testing web applications. In this paper, the Keyword Driven Framework has been created to perform Automation Testing for web applications using Software Testing Tool Selenium Webdriver.
PROPOSED WORK In this section we will explain about how we can design and use keyword driven automation framework in Selenium Webdriver with Java along with example. By using Keyword Driven Framework, instead of writing multiple functions to automate driven website, we have abstracted those things to excel files and then in that excel file we are giving the steps and the program we have written is going to drive best on the data excel set and the entire functionality of our Application under Test (AUT) gets captured as step by step instructions for every test as well as in a table. In Keyword driven testing, each keyword corresponds to an individual testing action like a mouse click, selection of a menu item, keystrokes, opening or closing a window or other actions. A keyword-driven test is a sequence of operations, in a keyword format, that simulate user actions on the tested application. In keyword driven automation framework we create the methods in Java that are mapped to the functionality of the application. With the use of keyword driven framework, we can automate the following test scenarios for Gmail as under :- 1.
User should able to logging in its account, when we are entering correct userid and password. User should not be able to login in its account, when any one of userid and password is incorrect.
