In our previous post of selenium testing, we discussed selenium testing briefly. But it was just an introduction about that. And the selenium is much wider in its own. In today’s article, we are going to discuss the selenium, IDE Tool.
What is Selenium IDE??
In selenium testing, selenium IDE (Selenium Integrated Development Environment) is a simple tool present in selenium suite
Selenium IDE has an inbuilt record and playback functionality that allow us to create tests very quickly, easily and efficiently.
Selenium IDE is very easy to install and use.
As selenium IDE is a Firefox plugin, it aims to support Firefox browser only. Therefore, we can execute our created test scripts on Firefox only.
Selenium IDE supports auto complete mode which allows the user to:
* Enter commands more quickly
*Restricts the user to enter invalid commands.
The most impressive thing about the Selenium IDE in selenium testing that the user need not to have any prior knowledge of programming languages. He/she just need to know a bit about HTML, java, DOMS to create a number of test scripts by using selenium IDE.
Let us talk about the installation process of selenium IDE:
