Hi, I am Shiwantha, who is a web based test automation consultant with an industry level experience of more than 4 years now. I have built a more generic data driven software testing framework using Selenium, TestNG and Apache POI which allows users to automate any web related application without even knowing the inner framework features. From now on, you don’t need to be a software developer to write automations code. Simply you don’t need to worry about programming language and other technical stuffs when writing the automation program, because the developed framework will manage everything for you. Even a non-technical person can use the framework and write automation test cases without an issue. Feel free to ask me anything on this framework and its usage.

Please find the implemented framework here (GIthub URL)

High-level framework diagram details are attached below.

Most of the automation frameworks we are developing are free and open source. Anyone can use it for any purpose. And at the same time community will improve the functionalities on the framework so it will become much stronger and defect free

I enjoyed programming always. Teaching is not really my kind of a thing I guess

Dec 6, 2:12PM EST0

What is the most difficult framework you've done so far?

Dec 5, 3:10AM EST1

Every framework is difficult at the beginning. But there is a stage where you will understand on the bigger picture. From that moment it will not be that hard. Sometimes it depends on the using programming languages. If the framework is Java related where we can find more community support it might not be that hard to continue on developing. But if the languages like type script are used it could be bit hard and there could be research and development phase since the community support is not there for type script still
