Hey All, I came with a situation where i need to test things from browser. It nothing to do with the different browsers. It just to check some validations, some messages with some existing data with me. I can’t touch the code base. It’s something like QA work. I am not very much aware about using of selenium IDE which is available in browsers. I look into the selenium world with ruby and found some interesting stuff that i can script my test and run for a browser. To run into the browser i need to setup selenium-rc server running. I have done it in my way. Just small code and using selenium-client gem which allows me to start and stop the selenium-rc server. Here is my code for selenium-rc server. It also includes the selenium-jar file. https://github.com/arunagw/selenium-server For running selenium-rc server. Just clone it. bundle install and then rake selenium:rc:start All set. Now you are ready to run selenium script from your local machine. To test things i am using hitting up google.com and validating stuff. A google example is also given on the selenium-client gems readme.
