Where can I find a full test automation project with Selenium WebDriver?

You have been learning test automation with Selenium.

You went through lots of concepts and would like to see how they all work together.

Where can you find a project that uses everything you learned and more?

Here :)

What follows is a small project that I built a while ago for a job interview.

It uses many test automation concepts such as:
  • page factory
  • base classes
  • html classes
  • test listeners
  • test ng assertions and fixtures
  • annotations
  • custom locators (javascript and jquery)
  • screenshots
  • saving errors in text files


The exercise consisted in automating the following test case with Java and Selenium WebDriver:

  • Launch bestbuy url (www.bestbuy.ca)
  • Search a product and add it to cart
  • Go all the way through checkout process and place the order with invalid credit card
  • Capture the error message due to invalid credit card


Before downloading the project and checking the source code, a few details about the project.

Project details

Maven project
- all dependencies are managed through the pom.xml file

Test NG
- unit testing library

Java JDK 8
- used for lambda expressions and streams

Page Factory
- pattern for creating page object and page fragment classes
- the elements of page object/fragment classes have names and locators
- names and locators are implemented using annotations
- available locator types are id, xpath, css, name and javascript
  
   @Name("SEARCH_HEADER")
   @FindBy(className = "main-navigation-container") 
   public class SearchHeader extends HtmlElement{ 
 
   @Name("SEARCH_FIELD")
   @FindBy(id = "ctl00_MasterHeader_ctl00_uchead_GlobalSearchUC_TxtSearchKeyword") 
   private TextInput searchKeywordTxt;
 
   @Name("SEARCH_BUTTON")
   @FindBy(id = "ctl00_MasterHeader_ctl00_uchead_GlobalSearchUC_BtnSubmitSearch")
   private Button searchBtn; 
     
   public void search(String keyword) {
     searchKeywordTxt.click();  
     searchKeywordTxt.clear();
     searchKeywordTxt.sendKeys(keyword);
     searchBtn.click();  
   }
}


The project has the automation framework classes in the main folder and all test items in the test folder.

Main folder (framework classes)

annotations classes
- FindBy
- FindByJQUERY
- FindByJS
- Name
- Timeout
 
 package com.bestbuy.demo.annotations;

 import java.lang.annotation.ElementType;
 import java.lang.annotation.Retention;
 import java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy;
 import java.lang.annotation.Target;

 @Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
 @Target({ElementType.TYPE, ElementType.FIELD})
 public @interface Name {
   String value();
 }

html element classes
 
    package com.bestbuy.demo.element;

    import org.openqa.selenium.By;
    import org.openqa.selenium.NoSuchElementException;
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

    public class CheckBox extends TypifiedElement {
   
      public CheckBox(WebElement wrappedElement) {
        super(wrappedElement);
      }

      public WebElement getLabel() {
        try {
            return getWrappedElement().findElement(By.xpath("following-sibling::label"));
        } catch (NoSuchElementException e) {
            return null;
        }
      }

      public String getLabelText() {
        WebElement label = getLabel();
        return label == null ? null : label.getText();
      }

      public String getText() {
        return getLabelText();
      }

      public void select() {
        if (!isSelected()) 
            getWrappedElement().click();        
      }

      public void deselect() {
        if (isSelected()) 
            getWrappedElement().click();
      }

      public void set(boolean value) {
        if (value) 
           select();
        else 
           deselect();
      }
   }

  
exceptions classes

decorator and proxy classes used by the page factory

page class
- used as base class for the page object classes

page factory classes

miscellaneous classes such as
- custom driver class, screenshot class
- enumerations (used to avoid hardcoding data in the page objects)
- simple logger class
- property class
- TextFile class

Test folder (test items)

  • base test class (used as base by the test classes)

  • page objects classes (all page object and page fragment classes)

  • test listeners (class for taking a screenshot and logging exceptions in case of failures)
  •  
     package com.bestbuy.demotests.testlisteners;

          try { 
             Class< ? extends ITestResult> testClass =

       {}
      
       @Override
       public void onTestStart(ITestResult arg0)
       {}
        
     }
    
  • test class


Most interactions with web elements are done through the page factory classes.

Occasionally, Javascript code is used when buttons cannot be clicked through the page factory.

Some of the pages have random popups that are closed if displayed.

The test script does the following:
  1. Open the home page
  2. Execute a keyword search
  3. Select the Online Only filter
  4. Select a product with online availability
  5. Add the product to the cart
  6. Continue checkout on the basket page
  7. Select New Member
  8. Fill in the Ship To info
  9. Select credit card as payment method
  10. Fill in the payment info
  11. Submits transaction
  12. Verify that there is at least an error message
  13. Saves the error messages and the search keyword to a text file


The test script uses a keyword parameter which can take multiple values.
