Ekioh Adds Selenium Support to SVG

Cambridge, UK, 15th April 2013

Ekioh announced today that it has added support for the Selenium WebDriver framework to its most widely deployed TV compliant Scalable Vector Graphics engine. This allows the Ekioh SVG engine to be remotely controlled and queried for information from a variety of different client languages which enables middleware providers and content authors to conduct automated content testing.

Currently supported Selenium features include getting and setting of the page location, key event injection, the querying of elements and attributes, grabbing screenshots, and the execution of JavaScript.

“Adapting the Selenium WebDriver framework to embrace SVG forms the foundation for a number of ‘on device’ test capabilities”, said Piers Wombwell, Ekioh’s CEO. “Over time, we plan to further increase the number of supported Selenium features and introduce new test and development tools based upon the underlying Selenium WebDriver capabilities.”

“Our middleware partners have welcomed the addition of Selenium support”, said Stephen Reeder, Commercial Director at Ekioh, “we’re delighted to be able to extend the significant investment made we have already made in our automated product testing to include the wider middleware environment our partners provide”.
