Selenium with Java – Syllabus

Selenium with Java – Syllabus, Java Programming for Selenium, TestNG Framework for Selenium, Selenium Automation Framework, and Live Project.

According to Selenium’s official website (, Primarily Selenium is for automating web applications for testing purposes but is certainly not limited to just that. Web-based administration tasks can also be automated as well.

Selenium was developed for supporting Functional & Regression Testing of Web Applications at System Test and Acceptance Test Levels.

Selenium is not an all-inclusive Test tool; it requires some third-party plug-ins and frameworks to broaden the scope of testing.

Selenium with Java – Syllabus

  • Selenium supports six programming languages to write and execute test cases, we can select any one of those languages.
  • SeleniumTest Environment depends on the Programming platform that we selected.
  • Suppose we selected Java for Selenium, then our Selenium Test Environment can have Eclipse IDE, Java, Selenium WebDriver, TestNG, Maven, etc,
