LiquidTest for Selenium Released

LiquidTest supports the Selenium specification outside the core Selenium implementation

JadeLiquid is proud to announce the addition of native Selenium support in LiquidTest, the Web Application Testing tool. LiquidTest supports the Selenium specification outside the core Selenium implementation. With this clean-room Selenium implementation LiquidTest now provides a robust Recording and Replay engine for Selenium users.

"Selenium is an incredibly popular tool with a great user community. What we aimed to do was develop a clean-room Selenium implementation within LiquidTest that uses the core LiquidTest technology to greatly improve the test Recording and Creation capability of Selenium. LiquidTest has always had a robust Recording engine, so we decided to extend this engine to support the Selenium specification. We also bring complete Recording support for Internet Explorer and advanced features such as powerful Data-driven test capabilities." said Anthony Scotney, CEO of JadeLiquid.

LiquidTest can replay any Selenium supported language, and has specific support for recording Selenium Selenese (HTML) and Selenium JUnit (C# NUnit to follow) tests in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. Many LiquidTest users are previous or existing Selenium users with existing test cases and infrastructures. By adding Selenium support to LiquidTest these users can create new and run existing Selenium tests within LiquidTest or run LiquidTest recorded Selenium tests in existing Selenium infrastructures. With this addition to LiquidTest users no longer need to struggle and expend significant time working on Selenium test creation, the LiquidTest Recording engine takes care of this time consuming and tedious task in a robust manner.

Key features of the LiquidTest Selenium support:

  • Support for recording robust Selenium tests in Internet Explorer and Firefox
  • Recording support for Selenium spec JUnit and HTML (Selenese)
  • Cross compatibility: LiquidTest recorded Selenium tests will run in existing Selenium environments
  • Support for data-driven tests in Selenium
  • Robust XPath recording and LiquidTest's class leading element and event recognition
  • Support for existing Selenium tests within LiquidTest (Server and IDE Plugins)

"The native Selenium support was a natural next step for us. Many LiquidTest users have utilized Selenium or have existing Selenium infrastructures. With the popularity of Selenium it made perfect sense for LiquidTest to support the Selenium specification."

"LiquidTest improves on the areas where Selenium has traditionally struggled. We believe that by using LiquidTest to Record Selenium tests results in significant savings of time and effort. Additionally we hope to see more Quality Assurance teams utilizing the Selenium specification with the help of LiquidTest. Users with a lower technical ability than software developers can now create Selenium tests without the need to write by hand or modify tests recorded in the Selenium IDE. This addition brings significant value to both LiquidTest and the overall accessibility of Selenium," said Anthony Scotney, CEO of JadeLiquid
