Overview of this book

This book is an incremental guide that will help you learn and use the advanced features of the Selenium toolset including the WebDriver API in various situations to build a reliable test automation. You start off by setting up the test development environment and gain tips on the advanced locater strategy and the effective use of the Selenium WebDriver API. After that, the use of design patterns such as data - driven tests and PageFactory are demonstrated. You will then be familiarised with extending Selenium WebDriver API by implementing custom tasks and setting up your own distributed environment to run tests in parallel for cross-browser testing.

Web storage – testing session storage

Similar to local storage, session storage stores the data for only one session. The data is deleted when the user closes the browser window. We can access the session storage using the sessionStorage interface through JavaScript.

In this recipe, we will verify that a web page stores data in session storage as expected.

How to do it...

Let's create a test case that will load a web page that implements a counter and stores the value of the counter every time a button is clicked in session storage. We will verify that a new counter value is stored in session storage:

package com.secookbook.examples.chapter10;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.junit.After;
import org.junit.Before;
import org.junit.Test;

import static org.junit.Assert.*;

public class HTML5SessionStorage {
