An open source software testing- Selenium automated testing
There are many software applications, which are written as web based applications and are runned in a web browser. To test these applications, there are various organizations and companies that are using different methodologies like agile. These companies also perform test automation to test software applications for software projects. Test automation is conducted to test the application by using software tools that runs repeatable tests.
There are several open source tools and commercial tools that help in the development of test automation. The most powerful software open source tool that is used for test automation is selenium. Selenium is a set that has different software tools and uses Java script. The software tools of selenium have different approach in supporting test automation.
In simple words selenium is a automated tool that is used for the following:
Web based applications
Embedding test automation engine in users or clients browser
Functional regression testing
There are various advantages with selenium test automation that improves the efficiency of a software team’s testing processes that our outsource software development. There are numerous organizations that are outsourcing this software and the test automation supports-
Selenium Remote Control (RC) is a Java server that is used for execution of test scripts.
With selenium Core client side testing web applications are added directly in the client’s application.
For recording test scripts selenium IDE and add-on to Firefox is used.

Compatibility: It allows cross border testing ( it records in Firefox and executes in IDE) and has multiple operating systems like Linux, Windows and Max
It has integration with third part tools for example, RTH Test Case Management Tool
