Best Practices of Implementing Selenium Test Automation

Check out some best practices or things to consider while implementing Selenium Test Automation:

1. Understand the application

Selection of the tool totally depends on the project/application/product at hand for testing. So, it is critical to assess the application for various nuances. For instance, if it is a web application, find the top browsers that it should be compatible with and accordingly decide on the testing strategy. This will help ease out the automation process and enable effective implementation of the tool.

2. Training on the tool

This applies to any tool that you intend to choose, where you need to check the compatibility and comfort of the team with the tool. So, it is important to ensure that the team is well-versed with various features of the tool before the actual testing starts. The idea is to avoid the learning curve by considering the tool that minimizes it. Selenium being an open platform, there is tremendous group learning and experience that helps in further learning and adoption.

3. Distribute the testing efforts

Every team has various levels of expertise, where the different tests are created based on the QA engineer’s skill sets. So, once the level of experience and skills of each team member are identified, the automation effort can be divided. Writing the tests can be a specialized task while performing the tests can be taken up by another group.

Consequently, testing done collectively becomes very much effective for finding defects and speeding up the process.
