Hi,

I have bunch of selenium scripts that are working perfect on local environment with url
http://localhost:8080/VendorApp

Now I am going to deploy them in QA(http://QA:8080/VendorApp
) and Production envoronmnets(http://prod:8080/VendorApp)
. How do I modify existing selenium scripts to run in higher environments.
Do I need to rerecord the selenium test scripts again. Or existing test scripts works fine by tweaking the URL. Does jsf element id's for text boxes, dropdowns, search buttons etc remain same or do they change.

please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

This is where the (previous given) advice to use Selenium Webdriver would solve your issues. Yes, there may be a bit of extra work to using the Webdriver API rather than just recording scripts in the IDE but it will pay off.

Also, because it wasn't clear in your other question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/J2EE/Q_28322258.html) that you only have recorded "scripts", this move from the IDE to using Webdriver API will be necessary in order for you to run the selenium tests via JUnit and therefore for them to be run automatically.
