I have done programming in Java. I have done manual testing as a programmer is required to do but have not delved
much into testing.Now I am required to perform automation testing for java projects using Selenium. As I am
new to this please suggest a book on automation testing. I searched on Net but there are so many books I
do not know which one to take. Please also suggest a book for Selenium.
We actually do our own book reviews. While we do cross post to Amazon, its less overwhelming here. If you look at this list, you will see two books on the topic that I personally reviewed and found useful.
- Exploratory Software Testing by James A. Whittaker .
- Implementing Automated Software Testing: How to Save Time and Lower Costs While Raising Quality
by Elfriede Dustin, Thom Garrett, Bernie Gauf
I will buy these books .If I am not wrong I should go for "Next Generation Java Testing: TestNG and Advanced Concepts
by Cedric Beust, Hani Suleiman " if I want to use TestNG. Once again thankyou Jeanne. Could you please suggest a book
specifically for Java projects and a book for Selenium.
I am a member of the SCJP and SCWCD forums and so I know how valuable the information given on this site is. I rely
a lot on Javaranch . As I am new to the testing field sometimes I might ask stupid questions(which I might not find stupid) , please do not mind .

For Selenium, the manual is very thorough. I haven't read any physical books on the topic. For Java, what are you looking for? Java is a big topic.

I am looking for a book on automation testing for java WEB applications. Have to use Selenium and integrate it
with a Java IDE - Eclipse IDE.
Which version of Selenium should I use in a live project ? Selenium 2.0 was released in July 2011.
Should I go for Selenium 1.0 or Selenium 2.0 . Is selenium 2 being used in industry and I should go for it.I
spoke to a few friends and could get information only on QTP not on Selenium
"Selenium WebDriver is the successor of Selenium Remote Control which has been officially deprecated. The Selenium Server (used by both WebDriver and Remote Control) now also includes built-in grid capabilities."
But most of the examples that I am getting are on Selenium RC or IDE. So am having problem in starting with it.
