Tellurium Automated Testing Framework

Tellurium Automated Testing Framework (Tellurium), formally known as AOST, is a testing framework built on top of the Selenium testing framework and it abstracts UI components to Java objects and does object to locator mapping (OLM) automatically at run time so that you can define UI objects simply by their attributes and write your selenium tests just like writing JUnit tests. Since the framework constructs the actual locator automatically at run-time and it uses the Group Locating Concept (GLC) to exploit information inside a collection of UI components to help finding their locators, Tellurium is more robust, flexible, modularized, easier to maintain and refactor compared with the locator-based Selenium testing framework.

The Tellurium framework defines a new Domain Specific Language (DSL) for object-oriented Selenium test. You can even write your selenium tests in pure DSL format.

Data Driven Test is another feature of Tellurium. You can define data format in an expressive way. In you data file, you can specify which test you want to run, the input parameters, and expected results. Tellurium automatically binds the input data to variables defined in your test script and run the tests you specified in the input file. The test results will be recorded by a test listener and output in different formats, for example, an XML file.

The Tellurium framework is written in Groovy and Java. The test cases can be written in Java, Groovy, or pure DSL. You do not need to know Groovy before you use it. Detailed Introduction, Frequent Asked Questions, and illustrative examples are provided.
