Sauce Labs Automated Testing Mythbusters - More Tests Are Not The Answer

Posted Dec 8th, 2016

Hear from Kevin Berg, Customer Success Manager, on why running more test in the same selenium session is not the answer.

Myth #5: To save time, you should run as many tests as possible in the same selenium session.

It can be tempting to save time by cramming as many tests as possible into the same session, but it is counterproductive in the long run.

Multiple tests in a single session can:

  • create test dependencies
  • limit parallelization
  • complicate the debug process

What is the reality? Keep your tests short! Smaller, atomic test run fastest.
