Functionalities of Selenium
I am learning Selenium Webdriver on my own, with a little bit of Java Programming background in my experience since the past three weeks.
In this time, I have learnt the following functionalities of Selenium by reading blogs/Practicing the codes which were found across google. 01. Element Locators 02. Mouse and Keyboard Events 03. Actions which can be performed on buttons, Dropdowns and ListViews. 04. Implicit and Explicit waits. 05. Uploading/Downloading files [With the AutoIT tool] 06. Data Driven testing. ie., Reading data from excel files and tables.
I just want a little more light to be shed as to are there any other functionalities of Selenium Webdriver which has to be learnt.
And one more thing am unsure about is- Can we use selenium to do stuff like database testing? Can we use it to retrieve data in database?
Because I have come across few posts which tells its not possible and there are some other posts which states it as possible.
Please shed a little knowledge on these things and help me out!! Thanks in advance.
No, you cannot use Selenium Webdriver to retrieve data from a database -- unless you were to access the data through a web browser. Selenium is a library for remote-controlling a web browser.
