How To Integrate Jenkins & Maven With Selenium?

Jenkins is one of the popular tools for continuous integration, build management, and automation testing. Maven is a popular build automation tool that is widely used for Java projects. The combination of Selenium, Maven, Jenkins integration is the pinnacle of continuous integration and deployment.

As a part of automation testing, we’re sure your team comes up with numerous Selenium test automation scripts every other day. As Selenium itself is not used for Continuous integration, Selenium, Maven, and Jenkins integration are leveraged for build management and continuous integration. In this article, we look at the usage of Maven and Jenkins with Selenium.

A quick summary of the blog post is below:

Overview Of Selenium, Maven, & Jenkins

Maven is a popular build automation tool that is primarily used for Java projects. The advantage of using Maven is that Java libraries and plugins are downloaded on a dynamic basis from the Maven 2 Central Repository.

The dependencies and other essential build-related information are stored in a pom.xml file of the project. Once downloaded, the dependencies are stored in a local cache (.M2 repository), and the same is used for build generation. This simplifies the build process, as any new project dependency has to be added only in pom.xml, i.e., no manual downloading and installation packages are required.

Selenium is a widely used test automation framework for validating web applications across different combinations of browsers, platforms, and devices (or emulators). You can refer to our blogs on how Selenium Grid can be used for automated browser testing.

Jenkins is an open-source CI/CD tool that helps in the automation of activities related to build, test, and deployment. Jenkins has an extensive plugin ecosystem, is open-source, and a passionate community – factors that can be attributed to Jenkins’ features.

In this Maven and Jenkins with Selenium blog, we would be using TestNG, which is a popular test framework that is inspired by JUnit. It is widely used for testing areas such as functional testing, end-to-end testing, and more.

These are the set of tools that we would be using in the demonstration:

  • **Maven **– Project management tool in Java [Link]
  • **TestNG **– Popular test automation framework [Link]
  • Selenium WebDriver – Library primarily used for automation of browser interactions [Link]
  • Jenkins – Tool for Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) [Link]

Here is the overall flow of information when Selenium, Maven, and Jenkins are integrated:

  • Once the developer pushes code into the repository (e.g., GitHub), a Jenkins build is triggered.
  • Maven downloads the dependent libraries & packages and starts performing the build. The information related to the test suite is available in testing.xml, and the same is also used in pom.xml.
  • A build goal (e.g., install) for running the automated tests is set. The same is achieved through the maven-surefire-plugin.
  • The maven-surefire-plugin tells TestNG to run the tests that are under the annotation @Test.
  • Depending on the AUT (application under test) and the browser (& OS combination) on which cross browser tests are performed, the Selenium WebDriver invokes the corresponding browser instance and executes the same automation tests.
  • Test results are published in HTML Reports, as the HTML Publisher plugin is used for report generation.
  • Even if a single test case has failed, the complete test is marked with status ‘Failed.’

How To Integrate Jenkins & Maven With Selenium?

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.

Jenkins Integration: Selenium Grid

  • Selenium Grid is a tool that we can use for testing, automating web applications, and run them on remote machines. We can run our tests to integrate them with CI/CD tools such as Jenkins. In this blog, we will see Jenkins Integration with Selenium Grid.

Why is Jenkins integration required?

  • Test automation helps us with continuous defects, errors, and bugs as early as possible. If we catch the issue earlier then it is cheaper to fix it.
  • With CI/CD integration we can run our tests after every build or after a set interval of time which will help us identify any issues.
  • It is always faster to test the service manually or to run the regression manually. As it will run automatically without any human intervention. And a report will be generated at the end of it.
  • So, that we can see if any tests are failing or not. If failing they can be easily fixed.

Selenium Tool Suite - Components and Features

Selenium is an automation testing tool; it is primarily used to test websites and web applications; it is an open-source tool. With the help of Selenium, test cases can run directly in web browsers, just like a person operating the web browsers. It supports many web browsers such as Opera, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc. There are several different sub tools to support different automation test approaches. In this article, we will learn about selenium tool suite, its components and features. So let’s start!!!
