Introduction1:09 with Jay McGavren
Being able to manually run Selenium Webdriver scripts and observing their output is useful sometimes. But as your development team keeps adding new features, re-running and watching all the old tests isn't going to be practical for long. For this reason, many teams combine Selenium Webdriver with a testing framework, so that the tests can be run automatically, and any failures reported in an easy-to-read format. In this course, we'll show you how to do that.
