Starting to build a (new) .net Core PageFactory

Starting to build a (new) .net Core PageFactory

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series Building a .Net Core PageFactory Framework

I am ridiculously excited to finally be getting back to writing code for this project. In fact I have spent far too long coding, and have left the blogging for a while so I have plenty to catch up on. Episode IV – A new beginning If you followed through my previous posts around building a Selenium WebDriver test framework in Java, you may remember that the last thing that I completed was to get it running cross platform. Anyone…

Accelerating your SDET career.

This entry is part of 3 in the series Building a career in test as a developer

Since changing from teaching into software development on my 45th birthday exactly three years ago today, I fell into test automation entirely by accident. It is something however that I really enjoy and apparently it is a great path for the ambitious software development professional. In just those three short years I am already earning more than I ever achieved in 20 years as a school teacher, and almost certainly more than I would be able to command had I…

Going multi-platform: Running the tests from MacOs and Linux

Going multi-platform: Running the tests from MacOs and Linux

Just a quickie tonight. Part of the reason for writing anything in Java is its ability to run on many devices. Before I move on from Java to dotnet and C# there are a couple of things to complete. In principle it should be no problem to call gradle to run my tests on both Linux and Macos. I’m going to cheat a little with Linux by running on Ubuntu on the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Going Multi-Platform – Adding a Mac to the Grid: Part 2

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Building a WebDriver Grid

Last time I discussed the differences in setting up a Mac as a node on a Selenium grid. That is not even half the battle however as I also need to get the supporting code in the framework and find out if I have to work around any differences in the WebDriver implementations. Back in January I wrote some tests checking that the framework was launching the correct browser and getting this working properly. I enjoy the challenge of writing…

C# and the disappearing PageFactory – My next steps in Selenium testing

C# and the disappearing PageFactory – My next steps in Selenium testing

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series Building a .Net Core PageFactory Framework

Being an Open Source project maintainer is a thankless task Ask Jim Evans, the maintainer of the C# (aka dotnet) language bindings for Selenium Webdriver as well as as the Internet Explorer driver that I am sure just about everyone who has ever written a Selenium test has used. Until I started my new job at Altitude Angel 16 days ago I had spent very little time worrying about the C# language bindings as I have been working in Java. As…
