Unit Test with Selenium in Open OnDemand

Hello, we are trying to automate testing applications on OoD with Selenium. Especially when using the VNC this is difficult and seems to necessitate using pixel locations versus selecting html tags. Are there more robust ways to do this? Thanks!

The short answer is that pixel locations seems the best bet. NoVNC is using an HTML5 canvas tag and redrawing things within that tag, so you won’t be able to say find a button to click or similar.

You can google selenium test canvas for more answers, but they all seem to say similar things: pixel locations.
