Functional testing is used to verify the how of Web and mobile apps look and work. Traditionally, QA manually tests a web site by clicking on elements, verifying responses and ensuring that all the elements display in the right place on the page and in the correct size. This was a pretty simple process when there was just a couple of OSes and a few browsers to test against. Today, with the explosion of OSes, browsers, mobile and tablet devices, it's just not feasible to test across all these devices and web / OS combinations. Automation with the open source testing framework Selenium is the key. With Selenium, you can mimic all the actions of a user and automate the actions so you can test across all the OS and browser combinations that your customers use.
Sauce Labs, a cloud-based web and mobile application testing platform integrates with the popular CI servers including - Bamboo, Jenkins, and others. Using Sauce Labs APIs, you can configure, and start your tests all from within your CI server. Test instantly across 700+ OS/browser platforms, and debug easier with videos and screenshots.
