PyCon, the gathering for the community using and developing the open-source Python programming language. This is the second year of the PyCon Pune where the community will meet for two days of talks and working on upstream projects in two days of dev sprint. CFP ends on 15th September AoE.
Note to submitters: The talks will be selected by a team. We will not count the public votes.
Automating Web testing using Selenium,Tesseract and PIL
This talk will focus on my own module (WTDrivers) which can be used in web based automated testing.
In web based automation the biggest issue is to locate any widget or to traverse through all the elements in the navigation bar because selenium uses mechanism like xpath to locate widget or element.
what if id changes?
what if new elements get added onto your navigation list that items would be untracked by script?
what if some changes are caused in regression?
what if xpath is derived from text and interface is localized?
This are some real life scenarios which would interrupt your script flow.
In WTDrivers module we have used selenium in combination with PIL and tesseract which omits some limitations of selenium and dynamic UI changes.
This is a generic approach towards web-traversal which can be tweak around and can automate more complex stuffs.
Breaking Up the talk.
1.Introduction existing ways to automate Web based testing and challenges faced during those approach
2.Introduction to WTDrivers framework and code walkthrough.
4.Q & A Session
1.Basics of selenium.
