Selenium - Override javascript functions to ignore downloading process

I have got an issue with downloading process on IE 8. This browser blocks my automatic-download functionality on my app so that I could not work with my test case any more after that. In my case, I didn't care about the file is downloaded or not, I just focus on the result after downloading process finished successfully. Therefore, I found a solution to ignore this process so that I can work normally.

I use Primefaces, here is the remote command to trigger the download process

<p:remoteCommand name="cmdGenerateDocument" actionListener="#{logic.onGenerateDocument}" update="xrflDocumentCreationPanel" oncomplete="clickDownloadButton();"/>

The following is my test case:
@Test
 public void shouldUpdateStep6ToWarningIfStep1IsValidAfterFinished(){
  MainPage mainPage = new MainPage();
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  EmployeeDetailPage empDetailPage = new EmployeeDetailPage();
  waitForLoading(empDetailPage.getDriver());
  empDetailPage.fillDataForAllFields();
  
  mainPage.clickNext();
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  mainPage.clickNext();//move to step 3
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  mainPage.clickNext();//move to step 4
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  mainPage.clickNext();//move to step 5
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  //avoid issue with download automatically on IE8
  mainPage.ignoreDownloadProcess(); 
  
  mainPage.clickNext();//move to step 6
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  mainPage.jumpToEmployeeDetailTab();
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  empDetailPage.setEmptySalutaion();
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  mainPage.jumpToDocumentCreationTab();
  waitForLoading(mainPage.getDriver());
  
  assertTrue(mainPage.isRequriedFinishedAllStepsMessageShown());
  assertTrue(mainPage.isRequriedMessageShownOnStep1());
  assertTrue(mainPage.isStep6Warning());
 }

The content of function "ingnoreDowloadProcess()"
public void ignoreDownloadProcess() {
  String script = "clickDownloadButton = function(){};";
 ((JavascriptExecutor) getDriver()).executeScript(script);
}

My 2017 Review

Passion for System Design After finishing a one year project, my longest stable team (3 years) was separated into two smaller teams. Sadly, but that was a good chance for me to become a key member in my new team. My preferred skills is about system architectures; therefore most of the tasks of building the application structures are handled by me. In order to enhance my design system skills, I have spent much my time for reading books closely after work. These following books helps me a lot.
- Object-Oriented Thought Process | Matt Weisfeld
- Head First Design Pattern | Elisabeth Freeman and Kathy Sierra
- Java 8 in Action: Lambdas, Streams, and Functional-style Programming | Alan Mycroft and Mario Fusco
Junior Technical Architect I was requested to join a technical architect team (aka Team. Alpha) where I actually has gained experiences almost on interviewing candidates for my company (lol). Besides, I noticed myself must improve the skills of convincing people because I have had a …

AngularJS - Build a custom validation directive for using multiple emails in textarea

AngularJS already supports the built-in validation with text input with type email. Something simple likes the following:
<input name="input" ng-model="email.text" required="" type="email" /> <span class="error" ng-show="myForm.input.$error.email"> Not valid email!</span>
However, I used a text area and I wanted to enter some email addresses that's saparated by a comma (,). I had a short research and it looked like AngualarJS has not supported this functionality so far. Therefore, I needed to build a custom directive that I could add my own validation functions. My validation was done only on client side, so I used the $validators object.

Note that, there is the $asyncValidators object which handles asynchronous validation, such as making an $http request to the backend.

This is just my implementation on my project. In order to understand that, I supposed you already had experiences with Angular…

Strategy Design Pattern

For example, I have an program with an Animal abstract class and two sub-classes Dog and Bird. I want to add a new behavior for the class Animal, this is "fly".  Now, I face to two approaches to solve this issue:

1. Adding an abstract method "fly" into the class Animal. Then, I force the sub-classes should be implemented this method, something like:

public abstract class Animal{ //bla bla public abstract void fly(); } public class Bird extends Animal{ //bla bla public void fly(){ System.out.println("Fly high"); } } public class Dog extends Animal{ //bla bla public void fly(){ System.out.println("Cant fly"); } }
2. Creating an interfaces with method "fly" inside. The same issue to abstract class, I force the classes these implement this interface should have a method "fly" inside:

public interface Flyable{ public void fly(); } public class Bird implements Flyable{ //bla bla public void fly(){ System.out.println…

How did I start practising BDD?

At the beginning days I have practised TDD (Test Driven Development) with using JUnit, I approached that I should test methods belong to a class. For example:

I have a class with some methods:

public class A{ public void method1(){ } public void method2(){ } }
And then, I wrote some test methods to check the corresponding ones, for example:

public class ATest{ @Test public void testMethod1(){ .... assertTrue(...); ..... assertEquals(...); } @Test public void testMethod2(){ } }
After that, I know that a test method (ex: testMethod1) should just only tests one thing, so I decided to write more methods for each cases. It looks like the following:

@Test public void testMethod1_When_Case1(){ .... assertTrue(...); } @Test public void testMethod1_When_Case2(){ .... assertEquals(...); }
However, it was not a really good approach because it seems that I just focused on test the functionality of the method of the class. With TDD approach, I knew that I should test the…

Styling Sort Icons Using Font Awesome for Primefaces' Data Table

So far, Primefaces has used image sprites for displaying the sort icons. This leads a problem if we want to make a different style for these icons; for example, I would make the icon "arrow up" more blurry at the first time table loading because I want to highlight the icon "arrow down". I found a way that I can replace these icons to Font Awesome icons.


We will use "CSS Pseudo-classes" to archive it. The hardest thing here is that we should handle displaying icons in different cases. There is a case both "arrow up" and "arrow down" showing and other case is only one of these icons is shown.
