Hi

I would to like to automate a website. When I make a search for
any holiday. I get some results As shown in the link:

http://www.lowcostholidays.com/flightresults.aspx

The problem is that every other day I get different results on SERP page as the
existing holiday has expired and a new one appears.


For example, if i capture a holiday say ABC, tomorrow a new holiday say XYZ is present
as a result my test failed.

I am using Selenium WebDriver with Java language.

Any help in this case is highly appreciated.

Regards

What does SERP stand for?

As far as Selenium, can you test for the presence of ANY holiday rather than certain text?

Hi

SERP stands for Search Engine Results Page.

As mentioned earlier, if I capture a certain holiday, that holiday will be expired in a day or two and replaced by a new holiday. As a result my test fails.

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards
