Can Selenium help in Database testing?

0 votes
I am totally new to web application automation testing. I am learning Selenium from YouTube videos and developing frameworks. While looking into the videos, I could find most of them cover only testing the application.

I found very few videos which state about interacting with the database and verifying them. I just wanted to know how can this be implemented on real-time projects? In these projects, will they help in some automating scenarios like configuring the UI, then validating it in the database, coming back to the UI, continuing the UI flow or will it be simply only verifying the UI?

I want to know more about how can I carry out database testing.

Any information on this will be of great help!

Here is the answer to your question:

Selenium is the best choice available in today's market while it helps in the automation of web application. Selenium has support for Mozilla'a GeckoDriver, Google's ChromeDriver, Microsoft's IEDriverServer & even Safari.

Having said that, you can perform Database testing through Selenium but it's not the ideal candidate. Database testing can include processes like transaction rates & round-trip calculations for which Selenium would be a better option. Alternatively, you can also integrate other tools in your project framework and work with Selenium in tandem.

Hope this is clear:)
