An Automation Framework for Everyone
Chris Loder shares how his team at Halogen Software has implemented Selenium in a framework that everyone in his company's R&D group can use. With an ever-increasing amount of manual regression testing, the team needed an easy-to-use automation framework. Chris presents an example of how the framework they developed at Halogen Software is used and, while doing so, shows parts of the supporting code that automation developers will find interesting. Written in Java, the framework is using Selenium in some pretty cool ways. Chris starts off with flexible run configurations and how they are built. Then the tests meet the code. Are you a fan of design patterns? They are in the framework and are shown and discussed. Need conditional waits in your automation? See how Chris and his team implement them with great success. Take home some great ideas for your own automation framework.
