Selenium stop clears the cookies

on Fri Aug 21, 2009 4:02 pm
Hi,

one of the selenium user have some problem regarding session cookie . The problem is:


I have a test case where I have to login and close the browser and when I open the browser again I should be logged in.To achive the above scenario I do the following steps using selenium:

1. selenium.start

2. selenium.open

3. Login to the site
4. selenium.stop
5. selenium.start
6. selenium.open

But I'm not automatically logged in.Doesselenium.stop clear the cache as well ? If so how can I achive the desired effect without explicitly saving and setting the cookies.

hi,

Whenever the selenim serevr open a URL it generated a unique session id and on that session id all operation is performed. When The close command fire, it wll automatically clear the session.

This process is different form normal web browsing where cookies are stored so you have to not login again, if you don't logout.

You have to write login step in your script to move further. I hope this will clear your doubt.

Best of luck.

Bye
