Test Suite Batch Converter Plugin v1.6 for Selenium IDE Released

The Test Suite Batch Converter plugin saves a lot of time. This version is now compatible with Firefox 5 and Selenium IDE v1.1. It includes some refactoring to bring improvements from my latest plugins. You will get it automatically when AMO approves it. If you cannot wait, you can get it directly from the version page on AMO.

Time and time again people tell me how much they love this plugin. I am always happy to hear it. As a side note, I know when it is does not work with a new version of Selenium IDE or Firefox, there is no need to write a review just to say that it is broken. A comment on my blog will be better as I go through the comments way more often than I check the reviews. On the other side, feel free to write a real review with your experience on the Firefox add-ons site. In case you decide to give it a poor rating, please also mention what you would expect to be improved.

I am working on a new plugin that will complement this one really well. I hope to release it soon. Enjoy!

  1. This is great!
    I have a couple of questions about it:

    -is there a way to perform the batch conversion via command line, for example as part of our nightly build script? And if no, how hard would it be to tweak the code to allow this?

    -where is, in the code, the part that converts the Selenium IDE commands to WebDriver instructions in Java?

    Thanks in advance for the answers.

      Hi Emanuele,

      Batch conversion via command line is not supported. How hard to do it really depends on your knowledge.

      In the Selenium source code you can find the Java conversion code at trunk/ide/plugins/java-format/

    My question is : is there any plug in that directly convert IDE html screep in Java.
    I know from Format option we can convert IDE script that i do not want. I want that is it directly convert it in java program or not?

    • Samit Badle says:

      Hi Preet,

      This is built into Selenium IDE itself. Use any of the formatters that mention JUnit. Next IDE release would put the name Java back into the formatters.

    I have few question here:
    – Will batch converter support converting folder recursively?
    – Do you have the list of command supported?
    – Do you have the list of command NOT supported?

    Thank you.

      Hi Yipfan,

      The test suite batch converter plugin converts a suite, not a folder. So if you create a test suite with all the test cases in it, it will convert them all.

      The list of commands supported and not supported depend on the individual formatters, so you need to check with the formatters and not with my plugin.
