Rails acceptance testing with Selenium RC
Jason Huggins gave a talk at the London Test Automation Conference on recording screencast-style movies during execution of Selenium tests as a way to generate up-to-date documentation. I was interested, because we’d knocked a similar idea around the office a few weeks previously.
He tried to demo it as part of a continuous integration setup with CruiseControl. Unfortunately his ambitious demo, involving Parallels Desktop, multiple virtual machines, multiple operating systems, multiple languages & multiple browsers, didn’t quite work during the talk itself, but I did see it working afterwards – it was pretty neat.
