Sauce Labs provides the world’s largest cloud-based platform for the automated testing, cross browser testing, mobile testing and manual testing of web and mobile applications. It eliminates the time and expense of maintaining an in-house testing infrastructure, freeing development teams of any size to innovate and release better software, faster. Currently, Sauce Labs is also the biggest sponsor for Selenium.
Integrating Selenium with Sauce Labs
Once you register and have an account on Sauce Labs, integrating Selenium is very simple. You will get a username and a secret access key to use in the tests. Next, you need to add the required capabilities so the test will do what you want.
Here are the steps to define the desired capabilities:
1. Define and set the capability of the browser
2. Set the capability of the browser version
3. Set the capability of the OS
4. Set up the URL string to connect to Sauce Labs as mentioned below:
public static final String URL = "http://" + USERNAME + ":" + ACCESS_KEY + "@ondemand.saucelabs.com:80/wd/hub";
5. Initialize the WebDriver to connect remotely to Sauce Labs
Sauce Labs provides all the details of the test, including video of the tests, logs, commands and screenshots.
