Robot Framework Vs. Selenium WebDriver

Robot framework or Selenium Webdriver? A question frequently asked in professional forums, the answer is pretty simple- “This question is irrelevant”, there is no sense in comparing the two.

Selenium is a library (some call it a webdriver) and Robot is a test automation framework that uses libraries. With Robot, you can run a variety of automated tests; Both UI element based and API tests, you can run a test with the help of the a math library and a test that validates if the element exists on the page, with the assistance of Selenium Webdriver.

With selenium, you can create UI based functional test cases, but in order to execute them, you’ll need a test automation runner or alternatively, an automation wrapper. There are several popular test runners available out there, for instance: MSTest, TestNG, Nunit, Junit etc.
