Html Elements framework

release Maven Central

This framework is designed to provide an easy-to-use way of interacting with web-page elements in your tests. It can be considered to be an extension of WebDriver Page Object.

With the help of the Html Elements framework you can group web-page elements into blocks, encapsulate logic of interaction within them and then easily use created blocks in page objects. It also provides a set of helpful matchers to use with web-page elements and blocks. See JavaDocs and Samples for more details.

Create blocks of elements

For example, let's create a block for the search form on the page http://www.yandex.com:

@Name("Search form")
@FindBy(xpath = "//form")
public class SearchArrow extends HtmlElement {

    @Name("Search request input")
    @FindBy(id = "searchInput")
    private TextInput requestInput;

    @Name("Search button")
    @FindBy(className = "b-form-button__input")
    private Button searchButton;

    public void search(String request) {
        requestInput.sendKeys(request);
        searchButton.click();
    }
}

Construct page object using created blocks

You can easily use created blocks in page objects:

public class SearchPage {

    private SearchArrow searchArrow;
    // Other blocks and elements here ...

    public SearchPage(WebDriver driver) {
        PageFactory.initElements(new HtmlElementDecorator(new HtmlElementLocatorFactory(driver)), this);
    }

    public void search(String request) {
        searchArrow.search(request);
    }

    // Other methods here ...
}

Use page objects in your tests

Created page objects can be used in your tests. This makes tests more concise, easier to maintain, and easy to write.

public class SampleTest {

    private WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
    private SearchPage searchPage = new SearchPage(driver);

    @Before
    public void loadPage() {
        driver.get("http://www.yandex.com");
    }

    @Test
    public void sampleTest() {
        searchPage.search("yandex");
        // Some assertion here
    }

    @After
    public void closeDriver() {
        driver.quit();
    }
}
