Hi Dan and Markus
I have added some troubleshooting tips, based on notes I took during the
Friday May 14 meeting, to the Selenium Framework page:
I think it
has the tip about port 4444. My intent was to add information for problem
solving and notes as I was using Selenium. If this is something that needs
to be updated, then let me know. Also let me know if I need to reference the
person who suggested the tip on the page (to give appropriate credit). I
will be copying the php framework into Selenium IDE and giving it a try.
Despite my initial problems getting the Selenium Framework to run, I think
it is a great start. Now that I have the PagedTiffHandler working, here is
some feedback on the current framework:
+ When I svn up ../tests (or any ancestor directory), the local changes
make to RunSeleniumTests cause a local conflict error. Eventually, many of
the configuration changes I made should appear in LocalSeleniumSettings, but
it isn't clear that is possible for all of them. For example, I change the
commented out set_include_path to include my local PHP/PEAR directory. Can
this be set in LocalSeleniumSettings?
Another difference is the include_once() for each test suite. Is it possible
to move these into LocalSeleniumSettings?
+ It appears there is no way to tell RunSeleniumTests to use a selenium
server port other than 4444. It would be useful to have a -port parameter on
RunSeleniumServer for this. For example, if there are multiple developers
working on the same machine, they probably need to use different selenium
servers differentiated by different port numbers.
I don't mind working on both of these issues, but since you are the original
architect of the framework, it is probably best for you to comment on them
first and perhaps suggest what you consider to be the best approach to their
