More Oracle Application Testing Suite Pros →

"The solution is free to use.""Selenium is the fastest tool compared to other competitors. It can run on any language, like Java, Python, C++, and .NET. So we can test any application on Selenium, whether it's mobile or desktop.""What I like about Selenium HQ is that we wrote it ourselves. I think it's perfect. It's a framework that you can use to devise your own products, which is nice.""It supports multiple processes, which is great.""For me, the most valuable feature of Selenium lies in its ability to help us find elements quickly. Apart from that, the driver interface is really useful, too. When we implement the Selenium driver interface, we can easily navigate through all of the pages and sections of an app, including performing things like clicking, putting through SendKeys, scrolling down, tagging, and all the other actions we need to test for in an application.""The grids, as well as the selectors, are the most valuable features.""Data parametrization and parallelization are the most important features in any automation tool.""I like that it is a robust and free open source. There is a lot of community support available, and there are a lot of developers using them. There's good community support."

Cons
"The dashboards need to be simplified and made more user-friendly."

More Oracle Application Testing Suite Cons →

"For people that don't know about technology, maybe it's difficult to use.""It would be better to have a simplified way to locate and identify web elements.""I would like to see XPath made more reliable so that it can be used in all browsers.""Sometimes we face challenges with Selenium HQ. There are third party tools that we use, for example for reading the images, that are not easy to plug in. The third party add-ons are difficult to get good configuration and do not have good support. I would like to see better integration with other products.""For email-based applications, we can't automate as we would like to, making it necessary to bring in a third-party product to do so.""There should be standardized frameworks to build automation.""One drawback to Selenium is that there is nothing like an object repository, such as that found in QTP, especially considering continuous integration practices that have become common nowadays.""The installation could be simplified, it is a bit difficult to install."
