10 Reasons Why Selenium Implementations Fail
Selenium WebDriver is an automated test tool/framework for testing web applications on different platforms. Although there are many advantages with implementing test automation using Selenium WebDriver, there are a few common pitfalls that can be avoided to save your Selenium Implementations from failing.
This paper discusses the following aspects that lead to marked failures with Selenium implementations, and suggests solutions for the same in an elaborate manner.
- Lack of Proper Consideration of Technology Stack of the Web Application
- Scalability Issues due to Improper Selection of Programming Language
- Failing to Identify Browsers and Test Platform Support
- Immature UI Element Identification and Management
- And more..
The 10 different aspects that can make a Selenium WebDriver implementation success or failure (as detailed in this paper) have to be seen as a combined suggestion, rather than being reviewed separately. Considering the above aspects before diving into Selenium WebDriver implementation, expert test automation engineers and architects can help you reach your test automation goals, in a more reliable, predictable, and scalable manner.
