This tutorial outlines the steps to install the Selenium core tool. Most web browsers follow the
Selenium core on the web/application server that runs on the same domain and port as the
Selenium Core testing tool has been deprecated and is no longer in active development. Please switch to Selenium Webdriver or other similar tools for testing Web applications.
Install Selenium Core
To install the tool, simply copy the “core” directory to a web-accessible directory on the same web server as the application that you want to test. For example, on the Apache web server, this would be under the “htdocs” serving directory.
Once deployed on the web server, we can run the tool.
Selenium Test Runner
Selenium Functional Test Runner is a web-based tool that runs the web application test suites and reports the test results and test logs. We can either batch run multiple test cases or run a single test case.
To run the tool, open a web browser and launch the Selenium Functional TestRunner.
In many organizations, due to restrictions, it’s not possible to set up or install the tool. Other alternatives to Selenium Core are as follows:
- Selenium Remote Control
- Selenium IDE
- Selenium WebDriver
