Insanely Productive and Incredibly Satisfying

Just yesterday I posted that WebDriver Playback is coming to Selenium IDE and that I had managed to get my first command successfully executed via WebDriver using Selenium IDE!!! After an insanely productive day at Selenium Conference 2012, I am extremely happy to share with you that its done! And its awesome!

I managed to record some simple tests in Selenium IDE and run them in Firefox using WebDriver from within Selenium IDE.  And then using Internet Explorer too! The debugger is working as well. I have tried Pause, Resume, break points and start points and they all work well.

There is still a lot of testing to do and a few rough edges to polish. So, I plan to release the WebDriver playback initially as an experimental feature and promote it to a regular feature once we have enough feedback.

If you are at Selenium Conference, feel free to ask me for a demo.

    I would like to “Get Involved” and do a testing on the selenium IDE that you are building now. Feel free to email me.

      I am happy to hear that. Feel free to grab a copy of the nightly build and give it a go.

    Hello Samit,

    The Webdriver playback for Selenium IDE is a very interesting and significant achievement. Of course I am very interested in this upcoming functionality. If it is not yet ready as an experimental feature, is there the possibility of obtaining a beta version?

    Thank you for all of your innovative and hard work!

      Hi Rick,

      It should be available real soon. I am in the process of merging the changes into the latest version. I am also writing a couple of posts about why it took so long and provide more details.

      Hi Hemanath,

      Recording JavaScript heavy web applications is always a challenge. If you can provide more details, perhaps there can be a solution for you.
