Selenium Syllabus

In Selenium Testing we have 4 levels of testing . They are Functional Testing in Unit Testing , Functional Testing in Integration Testing ,Functional Testing in System Testing ,Functional Testing in Acceptance Testing .

Now we are going to know briefly about different types of levels of Testing

Test Levels

*Functional Testing in Unit Testing

• It is also known as Component Testing Level . It comprises the top level of tests in in the Software Development Life Cycle .

• It involves in the validating the smallest piece of code that can be logically isolated .

• It is a type of software testing in which individuals units or components of a software are tested . The purpose is to validate that each unit of the software code performs as expected .

• Unit Testing is done during the development of an application by the developers .

Types of Unit Testing :

There are three types of Unit Testing . They are

I Black Box Testing –  It is used when the user interface , input and output are tested

ii. White Box Testing  – It is used to test each one of those functions behavior is tested .

iii. Grey Box Testing – It is used to execute tests , risks and assessment methods .

*Functional Testing in Integration Testing

• Integration Testing is a level of software testing where individual units     are  combined and tested to verify if they are working as they intend to     when integrated

• The main here is to test the interface between the modules .

• Integration Testing makes sure that the interaction between different       components of the software is completed smoothly without any                 complications .

Types of Integration Testing :

The following are the some of the types of Integration Testing

•  big-bang , mixed(sandwich) , risky-hardest , top-down and bottom-up .

• Functional Testing in System Testing

• System Testing is conducted on a complete integrated system to evaluate the system’s compliance with its specified requirements .

• System Testing takes  all the integrated components that have passed the integration testing as input .

Types of System Testing :

The following are the some of the types of System Testing .

• Regression Testing

• Load Testing

• Recovery Testing

• Migration Testing

• Software and Hardware Testing

Functional Testing in Acceptance Testing

• Acceptance Testing is the most important phase of testing as this decides whether the client approves the application/software or not .

• Acceptance Testing is conducted to determine if the requirements of a specification or contract are met .

• This type of testing is done by users, customers, or other authorized entities to determine application/software needs and business processes .

Types of Acceptance Testing :

• Alpha & Beta Testing

• Contract Acceptance Testing

• Regulation Acceptance Testing

• Operational Acceptance Testing

Selenium Introduction 

Selenium is an Automation Tool for Functional & Regression Testing in System Testing and Acceptance Test Levels.

Selenium Testing

Test Tool –

We use Selenium WebDriver as a Test Tool for
(Locating Elements, Performing Actions on the Elements)

Eclipse IDE 

In Selenium Testing we use Eclipse IDE as Editor i.e.,

•  For Writing and & Executing the Java Programs .

• For Writing and Executing the Selenium Test cases ( Test script ) .

Integrating other software with Selenium (Java, TestNG, Maven, etc…)

Programming Language – Java – Software Application development – To write Selenium Test cases
(We use programming syntax to write test steps, variables & data types, operators, control flow, methods/functions, exception handling, etc.,)

Testing Framework

•  JUnit/TestNG – Unit Test Framework – Test Runner

•  JUnit is  an open-source framework is used to trigger and write test            cases

• TestNG is a Java based framework that is an upgraded option for                  running tests.

• JUnit supports to run parallel tests.

• TestNG can run parallel tests.

• In TestNG we follow the following sequence of steps . They are

• Creating Test Batches,

• Prioritize Test Cases,

• Group Test Cases,

• Execute test batches, and

• Generate Test Reports)

Build Automation Tool


• It is optional

• The Primary purpose of Maven is to create Build Automation for Java

• The Secondary purpose of Maven is to Test Environment and  Maintenance of Test Environment.

Automation Framework – Hybrid Framework.

Test Automation / Automated Testing using Selenium

Selenium WebDriver – API

• Selenium Test Environment Setup
• Inspecting HTML Elements – Using a Browser built-in feature.
• Locating HTML Elements – By Selenium WebDriver
• Performing Actions on the elements – By Selenium WebDriver
• Object Repositories – POM – Page Object Model
• Reusable Functions – Programming Methods
• Parameterization – Programming variables, arguments, etc,
• Data driven testing – Programming loops
• Handling Run-time errors – Java exception handling code
• Inserting Verification Points – Testing Framework assert methods
• Result Reporting – Testing Framework

Cross browser testing – By Selenium WebDriver

I. Java Programming (Java Standard Edition/Core Java)
