Moving to Selenium RC from Selenium IDE should be painless, right?
You can just select the test case and export it to the language you love. Really simple.
- Click on the test case
- Click on the File menu
- Wait on Export Test Case as
- Click on the desired format
- Type in the filename
- Click on the save button
If you have been using Selenium IDE heavily and already have a few suites each with about a dozen or more test cases, and fearing the move to Selenium RC. You won’t have to fear it for much longer. 🙂
How it came to be? Some people don’t mind manual labour, I do. I prefer to be efficient. 🙂 That means, I want to reuse as much code as possible, get things done without having to repeatedly do a sequence of items and not to be bothered with needless prompts. What started as a dirty patch to the Selenium IDE quickly evolved into a User Extension that I came to depend on.
I recently had reason to revisit this area and I decided to bundle the old code into a plugin after polishing it a bit. Ta Dah! The batch converter will be out soon. It has been a great help to me, I have a feeling it will helps some others as well. Check back soon if you are interested.
