How To Add Visual Testing To Existing Selenium Tests - by Dave Haeffner

How To Add Visual Testing To Existing Selenium Tests - by Dave Haeffner | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

In previous write-ups by Selenium expert Dave Haeffner (published on the Applitools blog), he covered the basics of automated visual testing and how to execute it. Following those posts, many of our readers requested more in-depth information on how automated visual testing fits into existing automated testing practices.

 

Some of the questions received were: Do you need to write and maintain a separate set of tests? What about your existing Selenium tests? What do you do if there isn’t a sufficient library for the programming language you’re currently using?

 

In response, Dave Haeffner wrote a post that will put your mind at ease: you can build automated visual testing checks into your existing Selenium tests.

TestTalks with Adam Carmi [Applitools]: Stress-free Automated Visual Validation Testing

TestTalks with Adam Carmi [Applitools]:  Stress-free Automated Visual Validation Testing | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

Test Automation is difficult. It’s even harder if you need to perform any sort of visual validations in your test script. It’s often easier and more reliable to make visual validation type test into manual tests. So how do you solve this pixel predicament?


Listen to this podcast to learn about how to add reliable & scalable automated visual tests, which will increase coverage and prevent visual regressions.

False Positives are the sorts of challenges that give visual testing a bad rap. But by leveraging a more sophisticated image comparison engine we can save ourselves a lot of time and frustration by side-stepping these issues entirely.

How To Do Cross-browser Visual Testing with Selenium

How To Do Cross-browser Visual Testing with Selenium | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

It’s easy enough to get started doing visual testing with a single browser, and with Selenium you can quickly expand your efforts into different browsers. But its difficult to verify that your web application looks right on all of them (e.g., making sure the elements are not missing/mis-aligned/hidden, etc.). Especially when there are small rendering inconsistencies between browsers that can easily cause your visual tests to fail. Things like how an image gets rendered. This poses a real challenge since you can’t use traditional visual testing techniques like pixel comparison. So standard workarounds like modifying the match tolerance won’t work. Read this post by Selenium expert Dave Haeffner to see how automated visual tesing can help.

How To Add Visual Testing To Your BDD Tests - post by Dave Haeffner

How To Add Visual Testing To Your BDD Tests - post by Dave Haeffner | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

If you’re new to Behavior Driven Development (BDD) tooling (e.g., Cucumber) it may not be obvious how scenarios you’ve specified (using the Gherkin syntax) translates into test automation. If that’s the case, then adding visual testing to the mix might be a challenge as well.

How To Handle Visual Testing False Positives - by Dave Haeffner

How To Handle Visual Testing False Positives - by Dave Haeffner | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

** Special guest post by Dave Haeffner - author of The Selenium Guidebook **

 

One of the biggest hurdles to successful automated testing is making sure that when your tests fail, they’re legitimate failures.


Getting false positives is a slippery slope that can easily lead to a death knell for any testing initiative. This holds true in automated visual testing with common issues like elements being offset by a pixel, dynamic content, and making sure things work across different screen sizes.


If left unchecked, they can quickly erode any momentum you have with automated visual testing.

Adding Log Analysis to QA Will Improve Your Processes

Adding Log Analysis to QA Will Improve Your Processes | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

The development world is Big Data hungry, but it often feels like a race to nowhere, because the number of options is huge, and the use case is not always clear. Log analysis is one Big Data tool that makes the lives of development teams better, or it should. And log analysis can be used beyond developers and IT operations - to benefit Quality Assurance (QA) teams in the process.

Does Software Quality Have a Size?

Does Software Quality Have a Size? | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

When you are a small  software development shop it seems you can’t always do things the ideal way. The processes and tooling you adopt are associated with an immediate challenge, and can seldom look past an immediate release. Quality Assurance is one of those processes that many small dev teams consider something that they will do when they are large.  And what a huge mistake that is.

If You Don’t Have an Integration Lab, You Will Fail

If You Don’t Have an Integration Lab, You Will Fail | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

Just like quality assurance processes, development teams know they need integration labs, but rarely want to put them in place. The net result is that the responsibility and implementation of quality assurance is set aside and never fully addressed. But without a good integration lab, developers may catch issues only in their portion while missing issues associated with the entire application. Because quality assurance is such a huge issue, this post addresses the why and how of building an integration lab.

4 Visual Testing Capabilities You Didn't Know Were Even Possible

4 Visual Testing Capabilities You Didn't Know Were Even Possible | Software Test Automation & Automated Visual Testing | Scoop.it

Visual Testing in conjunction with functional testing is a new approach to improving application quality without additional effort, and like all new technologies, people have questions. The most common is that visual testing seems to have “false negatives” or is over inclusive. This post eliminates that concern, and outlines the 4 most important capabilities a smart visual testing solution should offer you and your team.
