Load Test With Selenium

BrowserUp runs real browser tests using your selenium scripts.

While there are other tools that can run Selenium tests, BrowserUp is different in that it lets you use your code.

What do we mean by “your code”?

  • Code in your IDE
  • Keep your code in your repo
  • BrowserUp doesn’t take your code, run it, and extract an HTTP script. BrowserUp actually runs your code during the test.
  • You can use your own libraries and extensions.
  • Because we run your code, you are free to import your own libraries, gems, JARs
  • If you build a custom image, you can use any language you can install on Debian

The easiest way to get started with a selenium test is to generate a scaffold for the language you would like to use.

There are two main ways to use Selenium and Java in BrowserUp

1 - Using our standard image, and built-in Java with a fat JAR.

Our browserup/custom-base image ships with JavaScript, Java, Ruby and Python pre-installed.

One advantage of using our pre-built image is that it can run other types of tests as well.

Note that we generated a scaffold with example code of only one kind, but the test config is generic, and can run any or all of the supported profile types: JavaScript, Java, Ruby, Python, PostMan, PlayWright, Custom and more.

2 - Create a Custom Image based on ours, with your own dependencies installed. With this approach, you won’t necessarily need to create a FAT jar (although that’s fine as well).

At present, the base for the custom image must be our custom-base image, which is built on Debian Bullseye Slim.
