A Smattering of Selenium #143

Filed under: Uncategorized — adam goucher @ 3:56 pm GMT+0000

If you had anything interesting last week I should have seen, you’ll have to resend it to me or @seleniumhq — things were a bit crashy.


  1. Hi Adam, I see your interest for accessibility. For cli ent like European Commission I have been using Achecker to check compliance with WCAG 2.0 AA. Achecker has an API to connect remotely, so while testing with selenium I send the current URL to achecker and send the report by email (by using a simple proxy which transforms the xml generated in html)

  2. I am comparatively new to selenium and played a little with selenium IDE, and trying to do with selenium rc. I am baffled to use the scripting language there. Can you tell me what is the most used language in selenium across industries? And also I came across this course os selenium automated web browser testing is this good? If someone does in Java and he joins a company where everyone does in ruby, then it’ll be a pain to learn ruby again. And also it would be great if you address any comparison about the available languages like (perl, python, ruby, java etc.) or tell me any other guidance would really appreciate help and also i would like to thank for all the information you are providing.

    I have a query, I want to generate email addresses with a pattern each time function is called. Lets say email id is fixed i.e ‘sabamanzoor1986’. Now each time when the test is run it should generate email id like
    1- ‘s.abamanzoor1986’
    2- ‘sa.bamanzoor1986’
    3- ‘sab.manzoor1986’
    and so on till id length.
