TestComplete and QAComplete now integrate with Selenium WebDriver

Posted on 11 December 2014

New versions of SmartBears TestComplete and QAComplete now integrate with Selenium WebDriver, allowing teams to get more value from their Selenium tests and deliver Web applications with higher quality and faster time to market.

Open source tools, particularly Selenium and SmartBears SoapUI, have gained significant user adoption over the past few years. Selenium is platform-agnostic, offers multi-browser support, and quickly and easily works with various integrated development environments (IDEs). These capabilities make Selenium appealing to development teams for test automation and unit testing of their Web applications.

On the other hand, the pressures of iterative testing in an agile or continuous delivery environment drives quality assurance (QA) teams to use tools that are easier to use and offer higher levels of abstraction for testing application business logic. When used by itself, Selenium typically does not fit the needs of both developers and testers and can make it challenging to achieve a high degree of collaboration and automation. Close collaboration between development and QA professionals becomes even more essential when releasing high quality software products in shorter release cycles, particularly when driven by continuous integration practices.

Additionally, relying only on Selenium can make it difficult to implement the test management practices that allow a strategic approach in an agile and DevOps environment. Testers can be hindered in their effort to prioritize testing of key features, trim down unnecessary tests, account for risk and determine test coverage.

With TestComplete and QAComplete integration to Selenium WebDriver, SmartBear allows developers and testers to:

  • Accelerate release testing cycles by making it easy to reuse Selenium tests created on different platforms. Companies can thereby achieve higher levels of automation with less time spent on creating and maintaining Selenium scripts. 
  • Significantly improve code quality using in-depth reports generated with TestComplete and QAComplete based on more data relating to coverage and quality, which in turn ensures tests exist for all functions and methods.
  • Increase scalability of Selenium tests and enable execution from the cloud or virtual machines using SmartBear TestExecute.
  • Gain a consolidated view of all their testing efforts, including manual as well as automated tests. A cross-project view not only provides testers with greater insight into test case prioritization, but also enables them to check for traceability between requirements, manual test cases, Selenium automated code and defects.
  • Have enhanced support of additional unit testing frameworks including JUnit, NUnit, TestNG, PyUnit, Ruby and PHPUnit.
