Compatibility of Firefox with Selenium has always been a pain area. Before Selenium3, Firefox used to be the default browser for Selenium. But after Selenium3, by using GeckoDriver explicitly, we can initialize the script in FireFox.FireFox was fully supported only in previous versions i.e. v47 and earlier. Selenium WebDriver version 2.53 is not compatible with Mozilla FireFox version 47.0+. After v47.0, FireFox is provided with GeckoDriver. GeckoDriver is a proxy for using W3C WebDriver-compatible clients to interact with gecko-based browsers i.e. Mozilla FireFox.GeckoDriver acts a link between Selenium WebDriver tests and Mozilla FireFox Browser. It is a web browser engine ... Read More

Automation − It is the technique to run the test cases without human intervention. If we are sticking to the IT industry, Automation is not just confined to Automation of test scripts. Automation is the basic control system in which human intervention is expected the least. Various many tasks such as Data Migration, Decision making for AI, deploying the code automatically in the latest builds for testing etc.Goals −The ultimate goal of Automation is to re-run the regression flows without intervention of manual tester. Initializing some amount of human effort is required to design the scripts. But the end result ... Read More

Before we answer if TestNG is a part of selenium or not, let’s have a brief understanding of what actually TestNG.TestNG stands for Test Next Generation. It is an automation testing framework and uses annotations. Annotations are lines of code that control how the method below it will execute. The greatest advantage of TestNG is that we can generate test reports and know the number of scripts passed, failed or skipped. Failed test cases can be run separately using TestNG. Along with it TestNG provides enables us with the ability to execute the test cases by reading the input file ... Read More
