Test execution

The primary task for using Selenium RC is to convert your Selenese into a programming language. In this section, we provide several different language-specific examples.

Sample Test Script

Let’s start with an example Selenese test script. Imagine recording the following test with Selenium-IDE.

open /  
type q selenium rc
clickAndWait btnG  
assertTextPresent Results * for selenium rc  

Note: This example would work with the Google search page https://www.google.com

Selenese as Programming Code

Here is the test script exported (via Selenium-IDE) to each of the supported programming languages. If you have at least basic knowledge of an object- oriented programming language, you will understand how Selenium runs Selenese commands.

    /** Add JUnit framework to your classpath if not already there
     *  for this example to work
package com.example.tests;

import com.thoughtworks.selenium.*;
import java.util.regex.Pattern;

public class NewTest extends SeleneseTestCase {
    public void setUp() throws Exception {
        setUp("https://www.google.com/", "*firefox");
      public void testNew() throws Exception {
          selenium.type("q", "selenium rc");
          assertTrue(selenium.isTextPresent("Results * for selenium rc"));
