Discovering Security Vulnerabilities with Selenium
Posted by Greg Sypolt in Security TestingSelenium

Hackers are constantly discovering security vulnerabilities—in everything from web applications to Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It seems that we wake up to newly reported security breaches with each new day. Why are companies being attacked? In my experience, it’s because security is too often left out of the development life cycle, even when a company has a dedicated security [...]

Move Over, Selenium 2: Why It’s Time to Upgrade to Selenium 3
Posted by Greg Sypolt in SeleniumSelenium Resources

Move over, Selenium 2. It's time to upgrade to Selenium 3. I have always been an early adopter. I can't help it. So it’s hard to believe it has been about six months since Selenium 3 released its first beta version, and that I’ve only recently been able to take it for a test drive. The upgrade from Selenium 2 to Selenium 3 was practically effortless. (I recommend that people start a [...]

Software testers once took visual validation for granted when manually testing apps. As teams moved forward with automated testing, the visual validation of UI components quickly faded away in the [...]

Posted by Dan Cuellar in Guest Blog PostsSeleniumSelenium Resources

So, I made it out to the London Selenium Conference last week and I thought I'd share with you a quick recap of some of the bits I found interesting, several of which reveal what may be coming next in the world of Selenium automation. Moving Beyond the Page Object Model Whenever I've used page objects in the past I've always felt that while they have many benefits, but also that they were only [...]

Selenium 3 is Coming!
Posted by Simon Stewart in Guest Blog PostsSeleniumSelenium Resources

Selenium 3 is coming! I’m here to tell you about what’s changed, and what impact this will have on your testing. TL;DR: WebDriver users will just find bug fixes and a drop-in replacement for 2.x. Selenium Grid users will also find bug fixes and a simple update. The WebDriver APIs are now the only APIs actively supported by the Selenium project. The Selenium RC APIs have been moved to [...]

Options for Validating HTTP Codes in Selenium
Posted by Alex Entrekin in AutomationGuest Blog PostsSelenium

There is no way to directly get HTTP status codes in the WebDriver API (see the lengthy discussion in issue #141). But that doesn’t mean you have to leave Selenium or go without any status codes in your test scripts. In fact, some of the supported methods - proxies and tightly coupled headless browsers - should make you feel at home if you’ve transitioned from [...]
