Re: Starting with Selenium

This is great stuff! :-) The Selenium project is benefiting immeasurably now that we've caught the attention of Ian and Grig!

About converting tcpwatch logs into Selenium scripts... What you wrote is very cool. A frequently asked question from new users is whether we have test recording utility... Now we have one. :-). I think it will probably catch most general cases, but, not everything that can be tested shows up in the TCP stream. If I have some JavaScript widgets in my page that do not trigger a trip to the server, they probably won't be picked up by your tool... And Selenium was specifically developed to test apps that that use JavaScript. So I think to capture everything, the event capturing (and translation into a test script) needs to be handled by JavaScript not in the TCP stream.
