Selenium Core is a test tool for web applications. The tests run directly in a browser, just as real users do.
It is used for:
- browser compatibility testing of the ea-Geier to see if it works correctly on different browsers and operating systems.
- system functional testing to verify application functionality and user acceptance.
The Selenium test scripts of the ea-Geier are located in the test/selenium test folder and are started by
The test/selenium/index.html file acts also as test suite holding all Selenium test scripts.
New test cases are added by adding a new line to the test-suite table:
<tr><td><a href="NewTest.html">New Test</a></td></tr>
A test case is represented by an HTML document written in “Selenese”, containing a table with three columns for a command and two arguments. Any rows with fewer than three columns will be ignored by Selenium and can be used for comments.
To increase security and because the Selenium-Core is used only for testing it will not be bundled with production releases.
If you want to run the Selenium tests and the Selenium-Core code is missing in your ea-Geier distribution, please download it from the Selenium homepage.
Unzip the code into the 3party/selenium/ folder – e.g.:
and make sure the version variable in the test suit is configured properly. To do this, open the the file test/selenium/index.html. Look for var version and change the value to the name of the folder you have just uploaded – e.g.:
var version = 'selenium-core-0.8.2';
