at ThoughtWorks


The Core is written in JavaScript, so it runs directly in the

-
in debugger and
editor


The IDE is an add
-

Selenium RC


Selenium RC (Remote Control)


The RC is a server that launches and kills browsers, and acts
as an HTTP proxy for web requests from them


The RC contains client libraries for several popular languages


C#, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby


The RC can be used by any testing framework that supports
the languages in the client libraries


The RC is written in Java for portability and is executed from
the command line


Selenium RC

Selenium Grid


The Grid distributes your tests on multiple machines so that you can
run your tests in parallel


Tests can be ran in parallel for reduced execution time


Test can be ran on various browser and operating system
combinations


Generates a collated report from all test machines


The Grid can be run on a server farm or in the Cloud


The tests are distributed by the Hub server to multiple Selenium
RC machines


The tests can be ran by various Cloud computing services such
as Amazon EC2, Sauce Labs, BrowserMob, and PushToTest


The Grid is written in Java for portability and is executed from the
command line
