SmartBear Supports Selenium WebDriver

Date 2014/12/11 10:47:05 | Topic: Product News

SmartBear Software now supports Selenium WebDriver, an open source automation tool with one of the largest user communities in the software development world. New versions of SmartBear’s TestComplete and QAComplete now integrate with Selenium WebDriver, allowing teams to get more value from their Selenium tests and deliver Web applications with higher quality and faster time to market.
Open source tools, particularly Selenium and SmartBear’s SoapUI, have gained significant user adoption over the past few years. Selenium is platform-agnostic, offers multi-browser support, and quickly and easily works with various integrated development environments (IDEs). These capabilities make Selenium appealing to development teams for test automation and unit testing of their Web applications.
 
On the other hand, the pressures of iterative testing in an agile or continuous delivery environment drives quality assurance (QA) teams to use tools that are easier to use and offer higher levels of abstraction for testing application business logic. When used by itself, Selenium typically does not fit the needs of both developers and testers and can make it challenging to achieve a high degree of collaboration and automation. Close collaboration between development and QA professionals becomes even more essential when releasing high quality software products in shorter release cycles, particularly when driven by continuous integration practices.
 
Additionally, relying only on Selenium can make it difficult to implement the test management practices that allow a strategic approach in an agile and DevOps environment. Testers can be hindered in their effort to prioritize testing of key features, trim down unnecessary tests, account for risk and determine test coverage.
