Study of Browser Based Automated Test Tools WATIR and Selenium

Nisha Gogna

Abstract—Web testing is the name given to software testing that focuses on web applications. Complete testing of a web based system before going live can help address several issues. Manually testing is a time consuming practice and is difficult to repeat but can’t be overlooked. Each time a software does not perform to specifications; the program will record and report the exact command that caused the problem. Once the problem is identified and the bug is fixed, one can execute the very same set of commands to verify the success. There are a number of commercial and open source tools available for assisting with the development of test automation. In this paper, automated test tools named WATIR (Web Application Testing in Ruby) and Selenium are proposed to support the automated test scenario for web based applications.

Index Terms—WATIR, ruby, selenium, selenium – IDE, RC, grid, selenium commands.
