Selenium RC: Run tests in multiple browsers automatically

0

So, I’ve started to create some Ruby unit tests that use Selenium RC to test my web app directly in the browser. I’m using the Selenum-Client for ruby. I’ve created a base class for all my other selenium tests to inherit from.

This creates numerous SeleniumDriver instances and all the methods that are missing are called on each instance. This essentially runs the tests in parallel.

How have other people automated this?

This is my implementation:

class SeleniumTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
def setup
@seleniums = %w(*firefox *iexplore).map do |browser|
puts
'creating browser ' + browser
Selenium::SeleniumDriver.new("localhost", 4444, browser, "http://localhost:3003", 10000)
end
start
open start_address
end
def teardown
stop
end
#sub-classes should override this if they want to change it
def start_address
"http://localhost:3003/"
end
# Overrides standard "open" method
def open(addr)
method_missing
'open', addr
end
# Overrides standard "type" method
def type(inputLocator, value)
method_missing
'type', inputLocator, value
end
# Overrides standard "select" method
def select(inputLocator, optionLocator)
method_missing
'select', inputLocator, optionLocator
end
def method_missing(method_name, *args)
@seleniums.each do |selenium_driver|
if args.empty?
selenium_driver
.send method_name
else
selenium_driver
.send method_name, *args
end
end
end
end

This works, but if one browser fails, the whole test fails and there is no way to know which browser it failed on.

Did you try Selenium Grid? I think it creates pretty good summary report which shows details you need. I may be wrong, as I didn’t use it for quite a while.
