XPath or XML Path Language is a query language for selecting nodes from an XML document. XPath also may be used to compute values from the content of an XML document.
XPath is a complicated method of identifying elements, but it can find the location of ANY element on a web page, even those without class, name, or id attributes. XPath produces reliable locators if it used correctly. That's why it's so popular among test automation engineers as the main locator strategy for Selenium tests.
In this course you will learn how to build reliable complex XPath locators, that can help you automate testing of any web application. You will learn a lot of tips and tricks. We will review some tools that can help beginners and some Google Chrome tricks for developers.
