Selenium Remote Control

Hi,I am very new to use selenium.I am asked to do a project.

This project is to build a web site that allows users to upload tests to the site. The site should then run these tests at scheduled times or immediately, as directed by the user.

Selenium � is a suite of tools for testing web applications. The web site developed in this project should accept Selenium test files as uploads, then automate Selenium Remote Control - to run these tests.

There are four parts of this project:

1. The web site itself, which allows users to create accounts, login, upload tests, view status of tests, create groups of tests, run their tests, and view the results of tests that have been run. The user should be able to select test options � choice of browser, when a test should be run (once, scheduled times, random times, etc.), and where the test should be run (from 1 server, multiple servers, or from a machine designated by the user). The system should track how many tests a user has run.

2. A control daemon which interfaces with Selenium Remote Control to run tests immediately or at scheduled times, and store test results in a database on the site. The control daemon should interface with Selenium Grid -to allow for running multiple tests in parallel. The daemon must be able to control Selenium grid to cause tests to be run remotely on specific servers (the purpose of this is to allow tests to be run from different locations).

I can somehow understand this.But i dont know how to do exactly.I have already run selenium script for a project in java.So i used ant script to start and stop the selenium server.Selenium also supports 6 languages.My question is when i upload the test say in php what should i do.Similarly for other languages.Now i designed a sample page in java with a browse button to upload the file .And when i upload a python script and hit Run,what should it happen.Any help can be greatly appreciated.
I agree. Here's the link:
