Manual Web Testing with Selenium

Quick Start to Testing Web Applications with Selenium, using Katalon Recorder

TT3611

Introductory

1 Day

Course Overview

Selenium provides mechanisms for interacting with web pages through browsers, including locating and interacting with specific features within a web interface. A tool such as Selenium IDE or Katalon can be used to perform the testing in a relatively manual fashion. Selenium also comes with WebDriver, which provides a programmatic interface (API) for controlling and managing Selenium tests and interactions. WebDriver provides a mechanism for capturing and repeating tests with a web interface.

Manual Web Testing with Selenium is a hands-on web testing course, essential for experienced web developers and test engineers who need to verify web applications.  This course introduces the student to the concepts and techniques of testing Web Application with the Selenium, as well as working with Katalon and Selenese.

To use WebDriver, developers must work with a programming language such as Java to control and manage the testing. It would be  helpful if students have some basic Java syntax knowledge. Participants without coding skills are welcome to follow along with the hands-on labs and input solutions.

Course Objectives

Students will leave this course armed with the skills required to recognize how to test web applications for sufficiency.  This course uses Selenium and Katalon to design and implement tests, working through a sample Web Application that requires several testing scenarios.

Working in a hands-on learning environment led by our expert practitioner, attendees will learn to:

  • Understand web page testing needs and how Selenium meets those needs
  • Analyze a web application from a functional and testing perspective
  • Design, code, and run manual tests using the Katalon Recorder
  • Use Selenium constructs to locate elements on a web page
  • Test web page forms and the elements in those forms
  • Use test suites to organize and manage tests

Need different skills or topics?  If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be further adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional testing, Selenium, Cucumber, Gherkin, Python, TDD, BDD, programming, testing tools, test automation, QA, services, security and other related topics that may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your needs. Our team will collaborate with you to understand your needs and will target the course to focus on your specific learning objectives and goals.

Course Prerequisites

This is an introductory -level Selenium course, designed for experienced web developers that are familiar with web technologies (such as HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript), who wish to get up and running on testing web applications.  Ideally students should have approximately 6 months to a year of web development working knowledge.
