Please check what is included into new version of XML2Selenium and switch to it in your development.
New functional of version 1.39.1
The "smart pause" functionality - waiting for the mandatory element before performing any action on the test page - was improved.
For all tags of xml2selenium a new attribute smartWaitFor was added, which should contain the following parameters:
- id - the identifier of mandatory element, which appears after complete page loading;
- timeout - the maximum time needed to have the element appeared;
- step - a wait step.
For definition of the wait parameters the following priorities are set:
1. Wait parameters declared for the specific element.
2. Parameters declared for <frame> tag and used for all elements inside this tag.
3. Parameters declared for <test> tag and used for all elements inside this test.
4. Parameters declared for <testcase> tag and used for all elements inside this testcase.
5. Values of JVM parameter xml2selenium.turnOnSmartWaitFor are used for all elements of the application under testing.

In order to help you we published in public access a set of report XML2Selenium generates:
- Master - for product development we have created more than 700 tests and constantly add new. This is done for constant increase of coverage of product functionality. That makes it more stable and reliable. You could study that tests, they contain lots of useful examples.
- SmokeTest - Master always should be stable, but on a practice we always meet fail, error. In order to check different combinations we are supporting special set of tests (near 350) which shows all possible situations - failed tests, validation error and many others. Such build and tests allows us to make manual testing of our product before release. And also it allows us to create automated tests which cover SmokeTest reports. Such automated tests are written on XML2Selenium. Thus we cover own report by own and the same instruments, what means we constantly use XML2Selenium in practice. Please study the tests to understand which error situations could happen.
- SelfTesting - as it was said we are creating tests (now 150) covering our SmokeTest reports. That SelfTesting reports shows result of such tests, and helps us to cover as much as we could of our product with automated tests. This improves automated regression of tests.
- BestPractices - we created these tests especially for you! You are able to study how to work with XML2Selenium, using BestPractices reports and WebView functionality. All the tests are separated on 3 levels: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced. Every level has tests of such types: Basic tasks (everyday routine tasks), Iterative tests (show how to create tests step by step), Product features (shows nice features of XML2Selenium), Popular services (cover Twitter, YouTube and other services), and also WordPress tests (on the example of most popular CMS system WordPress show how to work with concrete product).
