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.
After reading this book you will be able to:

When I started writing this the Selenium documentation was still a work in progress. The official documentation has improved massively, but still doesn't target the beginner audience that I target in this book.
I wrote this book to act as a supplement to the official documentation so that when you finish this book you can read and understand the official documentation easily. If you don't buy this book, then at least read the official selenium documentation to learn about Selenium-RC.
I interview a lot of testers. And it has been hard to recruit good testers with Selenium experience. I speak to so many people who get stuck at the IDE and don't progress further. I speak to so many testers who could get benefits from using automation but don't think they can understand the 'technical' aspects. And there was nowhere I could direct those testers so they could learn. I wrote this book so that those testers can read through this tutorial, work through it at their own pace, and learn to automate web tests.
When I started writing this there were no good training courses on Selenium. Now there are a few costly options and for many people that cost is a bit off putting, so by creating an affordable tutorial book there are more options in how people approach the learning of this tool.
I wrote this because I want to see more testers with the technical skills to incorporate automation into their test processes. And I know that it can seem daunting before you start. But automation is actually pretty simple. And I hope that by working through this tutorial, anyone can pick up the basics and start doing automated web testing.
This book was released early as part of a beta programme to get feedback from real users about what they actually need. The comments I received from the readers in the Beta programme were great. This book has already taken people who couldn't code to the point where they are writing pretty advanced test suites in Java.
Alan has worked in testing for his entire professional career - knocking on 18 years now. And over that time he has done a lot of automation, in a lot of different tools. He has also done a lot of programming in a lot of different languages.
At work, for the last few years, Selenium has been his main tool for our automation. Selenium was chosen because it was open source, and very actively maintained.
This text is a result of the learning he has made while helping the testers that he works with improve their automation and Selenium skills.
