Cerberus Testing: More Than a Selenium Web Automation Framework


Most QA teams start by coding their own web testing framework based on Selenium.

While this can help them in the early stages, they quickly face the issue of missing more advanced features for cross-browser testing, scheduling, and cross-browser compatibility.

In this article, we will share how Cerberus Testing is much more than a Selenium web automation framework.

Follow Cerberus Testing for more open-source test automation.

Cerberus Testing augments Selenium

QA teams have specific complexity to handle for web testing automation. Browsers are different, compatibility is not the same for Selenium actions and controls.

Cerberus Testing natively provides an abstraction over the different browsers to simplify your test automation effort on a single interface.

You can use the same test case on different browsers without changing the configuration of your test cases, simplifying test design and maintenance.

Cerberus also provides advanced execution capabilities.

Cerberus Testing enables scalable execution

It is easy to execute a few tests on your laptop as a starting point. But software teams usually end up with many tests to manage and execute.

Selenium provides a series of solutions to simplify the execution, like a simple runner in Selenium IDE, or a Selenium Grid for parallel execution.

The issue is the time needed to integrate all these pieces.

QA teams are usually not developers, and developers have most important tasks to perform. That’s where a platform with native integrations can help.

Cerberus Testing provides parallel execution capabilities as well as queuing management to prioritize tests, for example between non-regression and monitoring.

And with more execution, reporting becomes a critical feature.

Cerberus Testing provides native reporting

Test automation reports support fast feedback loops of software delivery answering quickly to “can we deliver that software change?”

The value of test reporting lies in the speed at which the results can be provided to continuously deliver and improve software.

And again, the job of QA teams is to use reports to deliver value, not to build reports.

Cerberus Testing provides a native set of reporting and analytics dashboards to speed up value delivery with test reporting, campaign reports and metrics calculation.

You can directly access stability ratios, execution time, and know the status of successful or failed tests to accelerate the analysis.

And being more than a framework, the connectivity with external solutions also makes the difference.

Cerberus Testing connects to multiple partners

The implementation of the Quality Engineering paradigm is supported by solutions that are interconnected through open services.

A basic web testing automation framework is centered on itself, lacking the capability to interact with other solutions of test management, CI/CD platform, or reporting.

This lack of integrations directly slows down cycles of iteration.

Cerberus Testing natively provides a set of integrations for many use-cases like integrating a test referential, launching tests in CI/CD, and receiving notifications.

All these integrations are functional and maintained to simplify the test automation process and sharing for software teams.

There is no time to lose in test automation.

A test automation platform to Accelerate

Delivering valuable test automation requires ready-to-use tooling to directly work on what matters most in your context.

QA and software engineers already have a lot of pressure to deliver business value through continuous software changes, they need platforms.

Cerberus Testing is the 100% test automation platform letting you have the total flexibility to deploy, contribute and use the solution in an open ecosystem.

The open-source part has been our philosophy from the start, and will continue, keeping an alignment with other components like Selenium.

Save time, and start with Cerberus Testing.
