Test Automation Waits

Automation Waits in Selenium are a very important part of automation that everyone should understand. How do you pause a test to wait for some element to load. Then there is the issue of AJax web pages that load data after the page as responded.

Thread Wait - Simply stop the test from execution. You can thread wait X milliseconds, this is not the best way to wait for pages to load.

WebDriver Wait - Same as Implicit wait which is the same as Thread Wait

Explicit Wait - Need to setup the Explicit wait with a call to WebDriverWait. Then you apply the WebDriverWait to a DOM Element

Implicit Wait - Same as WebDriver wait.

Fluent Wait - Used for web pages with Ajax. Fluent wait is similar to Explicit wait but with polling.

Use the DataProvider to pass in parameters like: OS, Browser, and Platform. This allows a single test to be executed quickly with different environments and browsers.


@Test(dataProvider = "sTestBaseTestNGDeclarationDataProvider") public void yahooTest(String browser , String browserVersion, String platform, String osVersion, String remote, String baseURL) { // Test tests }
