We've made the following updates to Selenic:

Release date: September 3, 2020 

Optimizations for Enterprise Applications

Selenic can now apply locator strategies optimized for Salesforce and Guidewire enterprise application software (EAS). Choose an EAS from the options list when recording actions with Parasoft Recorder and Selenic will apply the best locator strategies when using the recording to create Selenium tests and test projects. 

Improved Locator Strategies

The locator strategies that Selenic can use to create and heal tests have been improved. The following improvements have been made:

  • Selenic can now create locators that disambiguate similar-looking elements in complex UIs, such as multi-tabbed interfaces.
  • Selenic can now leverage accessibility standards to create more maintainable and human-understandable locators. 
  • Dynamic page title validations
  • Automatic in-page scrolling to ensure that elements are in focus
  • Chrome options are automatically added to tests to improve playback reliability

Support for Text Assertions

Parasoft Recorder can now capture text assertions during recording that will be included into the tests created by Selenic.

Create Tests Using TestNG 

You can now create Selenium tests using TestNG. Previously, only test execution for TestNG was supported. When adding tests to a project, Selenic will detect whether JUnit or TestNG libraries are present and create tests using the appropriate framework.

IDE Support

  • Selenic now plugs into Eclipse 2020-06.
  • Selenic now plugs into IntelliJ IDEA 2020.2.
