Introduction to Selenium

Selenium is an open source Test Automation tool which has rich set of testing functions and the operations are highly flexible.

Selenium first came to life at Chicago in 2004, when Jason Huggins was testing an internal application at ThoughtWorks.

Selenium has different components like Selenium Core,Selenium IDE,Selenium Remote Control,Selenium GRID. Selenium core is the basic component which runs with in the browser and acts as a test execution framework for all selenium flavors.

Selenium supports all the major browsers which has JavaScript enabled and compatible across various platforms.

Selenium is probably the best option for automated testing of websites today.

Here, using a set of Spoken tutorials, we teach you Automation Testing with Selenium in Linux. We have used Ubuntu Linux 11.04.

In this series of tutorials, we will learn about Selenium Tool which has several flavors. This is aimed at beginners and those who want to shift from other testing tools to Selenium.

The prerequisite for learning these tutorials is the Linux - shell commands etc.

The spoken tutorial effort for Selenium is being contributed by Suman Pasupula, TalentSprint, Hyderabad.
