Summary

After reading this chapter, you should:

  • Understand that exceptions are actually trying to tell you something
  • Be able to look at some of the more commonly thrown exceptions and quickly diagnose the root cause of the issue
  • Have a good understanding of how a WebElement is a reference to an element in the DOM
  • Have a decent understanding of the basic architecture of Selenium and how it sends over commands to the browser

In the next chapter, we will have a look at implicit and explicit waits. We will examine the implications of using them in your code and have a look at how we can make them work reliably for you.
