Selenium Remote Control (RC) is the analysis tool that helps in designing UI tests. These tests are for automated web applications in programming languages like Python, PHP, C#, Java, and Perl.
In the Selenium test suite, the Selenium RC is an important component.
Selenium RC includes two parts-
Selenium Server - Server that can launch and kill browsers automatically
Client libraries- Client Libraries for the favored computer language
Client Libraries- It offers the programming platform needed to run the commands from the designed program. Selenium client libraries provide an application programming interface or API. It serves as the collection of functions that can run the Selenium commands in the program. The Selenium commands are supported by the programming function that is inside the interface.
Selenium is the preferred platform due to the following reasons:
It is an open-source that supports multiple platforms, browsers, and numerous language implementations.
You will find a large user base along with the communities. In the repositories, the active developments take place.
What are the benefits of Selenium RC?
One of the most common automated testing tools is Selenium RC. The benefits of this tool are as follows:
Selenium RC supports a broad range of platforms and browsers. Lots of programming languages and constructs are supported by this tool.
To customize the framework, this tool supports the creation of user-defined utilities like exceptions or generics.
Data-driven testing, error handling, and database testing are all supported by Selenium RC.
This tool supports testing frameworks like NUnit, JUnit, and TestNG, along with logging and capturing screenshots.
You can have a portable framework for automating web-based testing with the help of Selenium. For the functional tests, this tool provides playback that does not require learning the scripting language. It is free so that developers can use it without any charges. On most of the modern browsers, Selenium can run efficiently.
