The next big thing in developing area is AngularJS. AngularJS lets you extend HTML vocabulary for your application. The resulting environment is extraordinarily expressive, readable, and quick to develop. Because of this most of the developers are migrating themselves/existing Projects to build/use AngularJS.
Currently, The Era of Software Automation has begun. Most of the testers are well versed in automation using Selenium/QTP and other tools as well. But with the introduction of AngularJS, tough days have been started for Selenium as selenium lacks in providing support for automation of AngularJS.
This gave an opportunity to testers of SPEC QA to harvest a way to automate sites which are developed using AngularJS. Thus, Protractor was the outcome of this opportunity.
Protractor supports Angular-specific locator strategies, which allows you to test Angular-specific elements without any setup effort on your part.
Protractor is using WebDriver for running automated tests.
When we inspect elements of sites which are not developed using AngularJS and sites which are developed using AngularJS, there are very fewer similarities between them. This turned as a challenge to find a tool which can find elements of AngularJS.
Few of the challenges encountered are mentioned below:
To overcome such a challenge, we have used a very fine tool named as Protractor. Protractor is an end-to-end test framework for AngularJS applications developed by Angular Team.
If any expectation within it block fails, the runner marks it as “failed” and continues on to the next block.
That’s it, now just write code in any editor (notepad/notepad++ etc) and save it with .js extension. Open the conf.js file from Protractor folder and give the name of the code file in specs section.
For exact steps and guidelines for installing and running the first code using Protractor, you can contact QA team of SPEC QA anytime.
