What are the prerequisite for building a Selenium Cucumber automation framework?

You might like to consider the following facts while creating a productive and scalable test framework.

  • Identify the type of application you are going to test. Is it a Web app, support mobile devices or runs on a desktop.
  • Would it require backend testing? e.g. Databases or SDK.
  • Decide on the input format. Is it static or dynamic?
  • Do you need to test the app for internationalization?
  • It must have a report which can help you trace a failure with minimum efforts.
  • It must support the auto-generation of parametrization tests.
  • Have a config file to define any setup related settings or global properties.
  • Apply abstraction at every level to separate the functionality.
