SELENIUM | BROWSER COMMANDS :

1.get() : This will be used to navigate the application url

Syntax : driver.get(“appURL”);

2.getTitle() : This will be used to get the title of the current Webpage.

Syntax : driver.getTitle();

3.findElement() : By using this we can identify single webelement On a webpage.

Ex: Button, checkbox, radio button etc.

Syntax : driver.findElement(By.Locator(“Locator-Value”));

4.findElements() : By using this we can identify list of webelements On a webpage.

Ex :

  1. Suppose if you want to identify dropdown values at a time then we use findElements method.
  2. Suppose if you want to identify list of frames in a webpage then we use findElements method.
  3. Suppose if you want to identify list of links in a webpage then we use findElements method.

Syntax :

List<WebElement> total_Links = driver.findElements(By.tagName(“a”));

5.sendKeys() : If you want to give the value to the input field(textbox,text area) then we use sendkeys method.

Syntax :

driver.findElement(By.locator(“locator-value”)).sendKeys(“text”);

6.getText() : If you want to get the particular text in a webpage then we use getText method.

Syntax :

String PageText=driver.findElement(By.Locator(“Locator-value”)).getText();

7.click() :Is there any click operation in your application then we use click().

Syntax :

driver.findElement(By.Locator(“Locator-value”)).click();

8.close() : This will be used to close the current browser window.

Syntax : driver.close();

{

//Execute the code if condition is false

}

Actual_value : Take the text from Testing Application.

Expected_value : client requirement

6.Difference between close() and quit() in selenium webdriver ?
Driver.close() :

By using this we can close the current browser window.

I.e Single window on which driver is having focus that will be closed only

Difference between close() and quit() in selenium webdriver

Driver.quit() : Every associated browser will be closed

I.e closed all the windows opened by the driver.

7. What is the purpose of public static void main() in java ?

public :

Since main() should be available to JVM. It should be declared as public.I f we don’t use main() as a public then it doesn’t make itself available to JVM and JVM cannot execute it.

Static :

We should be call the main() without creating an object, such methods are called static methods and we should be declared as static.

Void :

If main() it does not written any value then you have to put void(no value) before the main().

main():

If main() is not written in the java program then JVM will not execute the program.main() is the starting point for JVM to start execution of java.

What are the pre-requisites to run the selenium web driver?
  1. JDK 8
  1. Eclipse IDE
  1. Selenium JAR file
  1. Testing Application
  1. Browser (Firefox 53.0)
