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. Finally, we give you some tips on integrating Selenium WebDriver with other popular tools and testing mobile applications.

Implementing the Page Object model in Ruby using the page-object gem


While developing tests in Ruby, we can use the page-object gem to implement the Page Object model within the tests. The page-object gem provides simple features with which to build the objects of a Page Object, along with Watir WebDriver.

In this recipe, we will see how to use the page-object gem to implement the Page Object model for the BMI Calculator's main page.

Getting ready

You need to download and install the page-object gem with the help of the following command:

gem install page-object

How to do it...

To implement the Page Object model in Ruby using the page-object gem, perform the following steps:

  1. Define a class for the Page Object model by creating a Ruby script with the name of the page. In this example, we will be creating a Page Object model for the main page of the BMI Calculator application and including the page-object module:

    require 'page-object'
    
    class BmiCalcPage
        include PageObject
    
        text_field(:height...
