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);
}

The 2017 Scrum Guide, and My Notes

https://www.scrum.org Scrum is not only designed for software development Scrum can be used for addressing any complex issues:
1. Research and identify viable markets, technologies, and product capabilities;
2. Develop products and enhancements;
3. Release products and enhancements, as frequently as many times per day;
4. Develop and sustain Cloud (online, secure, on-demand) and other operational environments for product use; and,
5. Sustain and renew products.
Scrum Values is a key factor for building trust and respect among team members The five values are:
1. Commitment
2. Courage
3. Focus
4. Openness
5. Respect
Daily Scrum's questions are more focused on inspection and adaption rather than the status 1. What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
2. What will I do today to help the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
3. Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?

Git Feature Branch Workflow

Motivator It's important for a team to have an agreement on how the changes of source code should be applied.
According to projects and teams size, we will define a workflow or select one from recommended workflows; the "Feature Branch Workflow" is a candidate.
What is it? - One branch "master" for main codebase
- Several separated branches for features development
Why should we care? - Be super simple and allow each developer works on a particular feature.
- A stable codebase (master) benefits for continuous integration (CI) environment
- Leverage "Pull request" for Code review
How it works? A lifecyle of a feature branch (usually created by a story)
1. Creator creates a new branch from a story.  For example: "ABC-1-setup-projects"
2. Creator checkouts the created branch and works on the branch (commits, pushes)
3. Creator has done the feature, he uses "pull request" to merge his branch into branch "master"
4. Reviewers…

How did I start practising BDD?

At the beginning days I has 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.

.ui-sortable-column-icon.ui-icon.ui-icon-carat-2-n-s { background-image: none; margin-left: 5px; font-size: 1.1666em; position: relative; } .ui-sortable-column-icon.ui-icon.ui-icon-carat-2-n-s:not(.ui-icon-triangle-1-s)::before { content: "\f106"; font-family: "FontAwesome"; position: absolute; t…

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…
