A refresher for Java developers on how to use Selenium IDE and Selenium Grid to automate web browsers


  • Extensive practical demonstration of Selenium with numerous real-world examples.
  • Includes thorough examination of various test automation ideas.
  • Covers tools in conjunction with Selenium for implementing browser and web test automation projects.


This book introduces setting up the environment for writing test scripts after covering Selenium and its capabilities. Numerous functionalities, including the web driver interface, the web element interface, and locators, are illustrated in-depth using the By class.

Additionally, the book presents tasks such as HTML element manipulation, mouse and keyboard operations, dropdown, table, window, alert, frame, action class, and synchronization. Along with Selenium IDE and Selenium Webdriver, the book also covers another critical feature, which is the implementation of Selenium Grid, that allows the test suite to execute in parallel across several settings. Several add-on automation scripts, such as those for taking screenshots, object and data information, are thoroughly displayed and explained in this book. The book  discusses tools like TestNG and Maven that aid in the overall development of the test project ecosystem.

After reading the book, you should feel extremely competent in utilizing Selenium to automate a variety of web and browser testing scenarios and tasks.


  • Get trained to automate the end-to-end testing of online applications with Selenium Webdriver.
  • Confidently configure the Selenium Grid for cross-browser testing.
  • Create locators quickly for various HTML elements on the page.
  • Opportunities to improve test writing skills with the popular unit test framework, TestNG.
  • An in-depth explanation of the management of objects and data in the test project.
