Session Summary for Attendees:  The exhausting creation of test scripts, which are also limited to a single browser—it stops right here! With an exciting new approach, tests for APEX applications can be created in no time and are compatible with different browser engines. A look under the hood shows how to use the APEX metadata to create test scenarios which can be executed in multiple browsers with no additional effort. In this session I will show how this is possible and which software stack is necessary.
