Selenium is an excellent tool for UI test automation and with time it's only getting better. We recently developed a regression test framework using Selenium WebDriver and TestNG. With this automation, we caught some bugs which were impossible to find in manual testing saving us both time and money. I will talk about the capabilities of Selenium we used, current state of the automation, different kinds of UI verifications we do (and how), our learning during the framework development and what more we plan to do in the future. I will also briefly talk about some other applications we developed using Selenium which are not used for testing but have been extremely useful for the team.
