Selenium IDE

Selenium Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

Within the Selenium Suite, selenium IDE (Integrated Production Environment) is an open source web automation testing tool. Unlike Selenium WebDriver and RC, writing its test scripts doesn't involve any programming logic but you can simply document your user experiences to build test cases. You can then use the replay method to rewrite the test cases.

Creating test cases on Selenium IDE does not involve any programming language, however while using selenese commands such as runScript, a little experience before JavaScript will be helpful for you to better understand the concepts. You may also refer our tutorial for JavaScript, given under the URL:
