This book is for people who want to learn Java. Particularly people on a team that want to learn Java, but who aren't going to be coding the main Java application i.e. Testers, Managers, Business Analysts, Front End Developers, Designers, etc. If you already know Java then this book may not be for you. This book is aimed at beginners. Designed to help the reader get started fast, the book is easy to follow, and has examples related to testing. You can find the companion web site for the book at http: //javafortesters.com The book covers 'just enough' to get people writing tests and abstraction layers. For example, the book cover the basics of Inheritance, but doesn't really cover Interfaces in detail. We explain the concept of Interfaces, because we need to know it to understand Collections, but not how to write them. Why? Because the book covers enough to get you started, and working. But not overload the reader. Once you are on your way, and have gained some experience. You should have the basic knowledge to understand the additional concepts. Why 'for testers'? Java Developers coding production applications in Java need to learn Java differently from other people on the team. Throughout the author's career, he has have written thousands of lines of Java code, but has rarely had to compile the code into an application. Yet, when we learn Java from most books, one of the first things we learn is 'javac' and the 'main' method and working from the command line. And this is confusing. Most of the code the author writes is wrapped up in a JUnit @Test method. The author has trained many people to write automation in Java, and everytime he has taught Java to testers or other people on the team, we start with a JUnit @Test method and run tests from the IDE. Testers, and other people on the team use java differently. This book provides a different order and approach to learning Java.

The updated second edition of the popular tutorial guide to automated testing. Selenium is one of the most popular open-source automated testing tools available today. Understanding Selenium-RC and writing automated tests in a programming language are sought after skills on the job market and a great way of maximising the benefit from automated testing. Contrary to the beliefs of many testers, learning to code does not have to be complicated or hard. "Selenium Simplified" takes you through the process of installing and learning to use all the basic tools needed to write automated tests using Java as the programming language. Written in a tutorial style, this book helps you learn to code even if you haven't programmed before. No time is wasted on the theory of automation or padding about the tools. This book focuses on the practical knowledge needed to automate tests for production systems.

Take a deep dive into building data-driven test frameworks using Selenium WebDriver Key Features A comprehensive guide to designing data-driven test frameworks using the Selenium 3 WebDriver API, AppiumDriver API, Java-Bindings, and TestNG Learn how to use Selenium Page Object Design Patterns and D.R.Y. (Don’t Repeat Yourself) Approaches to software development in automated testing Discover the Selenium Grid Architecture and build your own grid for browser and mobile devices Use third party tools and services like ExtentReports for results processing, reporting, and SauceLabs for cloud-based test services Book Description The Selenium WebDriver 3.x Technology is an open source API available to test both Browser and Mobile applications. It is completely platform independent in that tests built for one browser or mobile device, will also work on all other browsers and mobile devices. Selenium supports all major development languages which allow it to be tied directly into the technology used to develop the applications. This guide will provide a step-by-step approach to designing and building a data-driven test framework using Selenium WebDriver, Java, and TestNG. The book starts off by introducing users to the Selenium Page Object Design Patterns and D.R.Y Approaches to Software Development. In doing so, it covers designing and building a Selenium WebDriver framework that supports both Browser and Mobile Devices. It will lead the user through a journey of architecting their own framework with a scalable driver class, Java utility classes, JSON Data Provider, Data-Driven Test Classes, and support for third party tools and plugins. Users will learn how to design and build a Selenium Grid from scratch to allow the framework to scale and support different browsers, mobile devices, versions, and platforms, and how they can leverage third party grids in the Cloud like SauceLabs. Other topics covered include designing abstract base and sub-classes, inheritance, dual-driver support, parallel testing, testing multi-branded applications, best practices for using locators, and data encapsulation. Finally, you will be presented with a sample fully-functional framework to get them up and running with the Selenium WebDriver for browser testing. By the end of the book, you will be able to design your own automation testing framework and perform data-driven testing with Selenium WebDriver. What you will learn Design the Selenium Driver Class for local, remote, and third party grid support Build Page Object Classes using the Selenium Page Object Model Develop Data-Driven Test Classes using the TestNG framework Encapsulate Data using the JSON Protocol Build a Selenium Grid for RemoteWebDriver Testing Construct Utility Classes for use in Synchronization, File I/O, Reporting and Test Listener Classes Run the sample framework and see the benefits of a live data-driven framework in real-time Who this book is for This book is intended for software quality assurance/testing professionals, software project managers, or software developers with prior experience in using Selenium and Java to test web-based applications.This book is geared towards the quality assurance and development professionals responsible for designing and building enterprise-based testing frameworks.The user should have a working knowledge of the Java, TestNG, and Selenium technologies

Developers looking to keep their JavaScript code bug-free will want to unit test using Jasmine, one of the most popular unit testing frameworks around. Any project of meaningful size should be automatically tested to help catch bugs as early as possible. Jasmine, a testing framework for JavaScript, makes it easy to test JavaScript projects, from browser-based applications to Node.js. While a quick understanding of Jasmine can be gleaned from the project’s homepage, the framework has a lot of details and exciting plugins. This book explores Jasmine in a depth that can’t be found elsewhere. This book provides: Exposure to some Jasmine plugins, to extend Jasmine and allow for more functionality and more thorough testing An Understanding of Jasmine’s main features, to allow code to be automatically tested and reduce bugs An Explanation of how to get Jasmine working in different environments (in the browser, in Node.js, through Rails, et cetera), to make Jasmine easier to work with

Your customers want rock-solid, bug-free software that does exactly what they expect it to do. Yet they can't always articulate their ideas clearly enough for you to turn them into code. You need Cucumber: a testing, communication, and requirements tool-all rolled into one. All the code in this book is updated for Cucumber 2.4, Rails 5, and RSpec 3.5. Express your customers' wild ideas as a set of clear, executable specifications that everyone on the team can read. Feed those examples into Cucumber and let it guide your development. Build just the right code to keep your customers happy. You can use Cucumber to test almost any system or any platform. Get started by using the core features of Cucumber and working with Cucumber's Gherkin DSL to describe-in plain language-the behavior your customers want from the system. Then write Ruby code that interprets those plain-language specifications and checks them against your application. Next, consolidate the knowledge you've gained with a worked example, where you'll learn more advanced Cucumber techniques, test asynchronous systems, and test systems that use a database. Recipes highlight some of the most difficult and commonly seen situations the authors have helped teams solve. With these patterns and techniques, test Ajax-heavy web applications with Capybara and Selenium, REST web services, Ruby on Rails applications, command-line applications, legacy applications, and more. Written by the creator of Cucumber and the co-founders of Cucumber Ltd., this authoritative guide will give you and your team all the knowledge you need to start using Cucumber with confidence. What You Need: Windows, Mac OS X (with XCode) or Linux, Ruby 1.9.2 and upwards, Cucumber 2.4, Rails 5, and RSpec 3.5
