Selenium benefits in Agile development

Compared to traditional waterfall software development projects, the role of test automation in agile development projects is more critical and significantly different. The close collaboration between product owners, testers and developers in agile software projects also changes the way that quality is managed. Managing quality is not seen as a discrete discipline done in isolation; it is viewed more as an integral part of overall project management with multiple stakeholders sharing responsibilities for quality and testing. This approach leads to different requirements for test automation and test management tools used to manage releases, user stories, defects and tasks. Traditional test automation and test management tools often cannot accommodate the required changes to processes, skills, attitude, and responsibility that the shift to agile management practices brings.

Selenium is the truly Agile automation testing tool. It allows agile teams to generate scripts using their preferred method based on the skills of team members – either visually using Selenium IDE or using a programing languages such as PHP, Java, C#, Ruby, Python. This fosters collaboration between cross-functional Agile team, helps to manage code and test together, and minimize future test-script maintenance effort.
