Automated UI Testing in Java [Video]

More Information
  • Available framework types and what they look like
  • Practical steps to building a framework from scratch
  • Typical solutions for typical problems with UI automation
  • Improve a framework when the entire test automation solution gets more complicated
  • Recommend each step in framework creation/improvement
  • Real-life example of the UI test automation framework with Java

Test automation, a formalized testing process, can automate repetitive but necessary tasks that would be difficult to do manually.

This video is a practical step-by-step guide to developing UI test automation frameworks from scratch, and is targeted at Java developers. We’ll explore Web Driver, Appium (for mobile applications), and Cucumber-JVM. While working through the video, you will master the step-by-step test automation framework development process and see how it changes the shape of tests. At the end you will have a vision of what a framework is, what it looks like, and what items should be covered at the beginning of test automation development.

Style and Approach

The video is a practical demonstration of the test framework development process. Most videos contain an introduction to the underlying theory and then a practical, step-by-step component with full explanations. Thus, the viewer observes how the entire test automation solution is built.

  • Build a UI automation framework on Java from scratch
  • Create a real-life, working, and consistent solution for UI automation with Java
  • Explore different automation framework types
