Automated Business Readable Web Tests with Selenium and SpecFlow

by Jason Roberts

Learn how to write automated browser UI tests that catch errors other types of tests miss. This course will teach you how to use Selenium and SpecFlow to perform automated, end-to-end testing with efficiency and accuracy.

What you'll learn

Unit and integration tests can help you catch a range of bugs, but not all aspects can be covered at this level of testing. Even if the unit and integration tests pass, you could still open up your web app only to see it fail because of errors, even at the production stage. This course, Automated Business Readable Web Tests with Selenium and SpecFlow, will show you how to prevent failure from happening. First, you'll learn about why you might want to use automated tests--as well, you'll be introduced to Selenium, learn how it talks to web drivers, and how to create tests inside of it. Next, you'll see how you can put SpecFlow into the mix to make these tests business-readable and learn about some common maintainability issues. Finally, you'll learn how to use page object models to create test code that is more easily maintained. By the end of this course, you will have the skills you need to create tests that will catch even the smallest errors, and as a result, you'll be able to create better, more fail-safe apps.
