Mixing different frameworks into one automated testing solution can lead to powerful results. Test Studio and Selenium are two frameworks that complement each other well.
For some people it may seem that Test Studio and Selenium are two completely opposite things. Actually, they can work very well together. In two blog posts I'll show you how one can use Selenium inside Test Studio, taking advantage of both frameworks’ strong sides.
Test Studio supports coding in C# and VB.NET. By using them one can easily leverage the capabilities of the .NET framework and Telerik Testing Framework which is in the base of Test Studio. But why not add some Selenium code in the mix? This is how you can do that:
If you already have Selenium tests, copy them inside Test Studio coded steps. My advice is to copy each Selenium test into one coded step. This way you will have better visibility and maintainability of your tests. It will be also easier to triage the results if there are failures.
Iliyan is a Product Manager for Telerik Testing Solutions, including Test Studio and Mobile Testing. Ten years ago he started as a game tester, because he loves video games, and eventually he realized that breaking software is fun. He believes that a good Quality Assurance Engineer should be involved in all phases of the software development process.
Now as a Product Manager Iliyan has a new mission—to unburden the QA engineer from the test automation problems and to make the tester's workday a more pleasant one.
