Cypress vs. Selenium- Which framework to choose?

Are you a software tester or a beginner to testing looking for the right automation testing framework for your web application? The choice between Cypress vs Selenium can have a significant impact on the efficiency of your testing process, so it’s important to understand the key differences between these two popular frameworks.


How To Use Desired Capabilities in Selenium WebDriver and Appium

Desired Capabilities in Selenium and Appium are highly beneficial for automating web and mobile application testing. They allow developers and testers to set various test parameters, such as browser name, version, screen resolution, and more. It makes it easier to perform cross-browser testing and automate user interactions with web elements. With the help of Desired Capabilities, developers can easily create robust automated tests that work across different platforms.


How to perform Mouse Hover Action in Selenium

An application has different Web Elements like buttons, text boxes, checkboxes, menus, sliders, and more. While testing using Selenium, you can simulate certain scenarios by automating low-level interactions with the WebElement(s) in the DOM, such as keypresses and mouse button operations (such as click, double click, and right-click). One such action is Mouse hover over a web element. Moving the cursor over an element in a graphical user interface (GUI) without clicking is called hovering.


Role of Thread.sleep() in Selenium

When automating a web application, we occasionally run across the NoSuchElementException exception, which is thrown when the element being interacted with cannot be located. The main reason for this error is that the element that has to be interacted with is present on the page but takes some time to load and show up for the user. You can see how this could become a significant problem during automation and cause our scripts to fail.


Migrating from Selenium to Katalon: A Practical Guide for Successful Transition

In today’s dynamic business environment, enterprises realize the importance of a quality-first approach to test automation. Prioritizing quality at speed over a faster release pipeline is essential for ensuring the success of an organization. However, implementing a successful quality-first approach requires an end-to-end collaboration, where quality becomes the responsibility of all the different personas involved in the software development life cycle (SDLC).

Extending Your Selenium Grid With Sauce

Keep your existing Grid, and automatically send overflow/different tests (e.g. Safari) to Sauce Labs! In this continuation, Allen Loew, a Principal Quality Engineer and Sauce Labs advocate, explains how saucectl has transformed his team's test efficiency. Keep your existing Grid, and automatically send overflow/different tests (e.g. Safari) to Sauce Labs! If you’re using Selenium to automate your application’s UI tests, at some point, you’ll need to scale your testing.


Selenium Get Current URL using Java: Tutorial

A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is a web address that specifies the location of a resource on the internet. The URL of an application typically refers to the web address or endpoint that allows users to access or interact with the application. The URL of an application can vary depending on the specific application and how it is hosted or deployed. For example, if the application is a web-based application hosted on a server, the URL may look something like this.


How to Find Element by Text in Selenium: Tutorial with Example

The most fundamental step in web test automation is element identification. There are numerous methods for QEs to locate elements. In Selenium, Find element by Text is used to locate a web element based on its text attribute. The text value is mostly used when the basic element identification properties, such as ID or Class, are dynamic and make it difficult to locate the web element. In such cases, it becomes very difficult to locate web elements.
