Testing the Internet - 21. Large and deep DOM

Some web applications has a very complex and deep structure including a lot of nested elements and/or big tables containing a lot of rows and columns. Doing test automation in these cases can have performance bottle nicks and unwanted side effects due to the complexity, so it’s important that you can use locator strategies that are precise and fast, and don’t have to iterate a long list of nested elements in order to get to the right element.

In this video we present the Web Editor including the list of calculated strategies for a captured web element. The list allows you to select the strategy that matches your context best and allows you to modify the individual locator strategies for optimal performance.

We have used this test case in the demonstration.
