As the experience level with Selenium and other open source automation tools grows, naturally there will also develop more questions. How would I effectively access elements? What's a good way to compartmentalize tests? How can I make my tests extensible? What's the best way to parallelize tests? What if my project doesn't use a standard approach like so many others? What if I'm not on Linux, or don't use Java?The idea and benefit of a "Cookbook" approach is that it allows developers and testers to look at the aspects that they need at that time, and see how they work in example formats, and then see how they relate to other topics. Packt has decided to take this approach with Selenium by publishing the Selenium Testing Tools Cookbook. In it, author Unmesh Gundecha has broken down thirteen areas of interest (eleven in the book itself, plus two additional areas as bonus download sections), and presents small sections and ideas to allow the developer or tester to leverage the ability to create tests, use the Selenium API, and test applications such as browsers and mobile applications. The book demonstrates examples primarily in Java, but several are provided that use C#, Python and Ruby.For the tl;dr crowd, if you have never used Selenium before, this should not be the book to start your exploration. I would suggest reading David Burns "Selenium 2 Testing Tools Beginner's Guide" or Alan Richardson's "Selenium Simplified" first. David's book is also a Packt Publishing title, and uses many of the same documentation standards, so it would feel very natural looking at section's of David's book, and then coming back to try out more examples in Unmesh's Cookbook here.
