Katalium Framework Page Object Model

Page Object Model (POM) is a Design Pattern for enhancing test maintenance and reducing code duplication. Please refer to here for a detailed explanation and benefits of POM.

Katalium Framework provides an abstract class com.katalon.kata.selenium.PageTemplate with some convenient utilities:

  • Page objects will be initialized automatically in test classes that extends com.katalon.kata.testng.TestTemplate.

  • waitUntil methods which wraps WebDriverWait patterns to keep the code concise.

Here is a very simple Selenium Page (source code):

package com.katalon.kata.sample.page;

import com.katalon.kata.selenium.PageTemplate;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.FindBy;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.ExpectedConditions;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.Select;

public class CuraAppoinmentPage extends PageTemplate {

@FindBy(id = "appointment")
private WebElement divAppointment;

@FindBy(id = "combo_facility")
private WebElement facilitySelect;

@FindBy(id = "txt_comment")
private WebElement commentInput;

@FindBy(id = "txt_visit_date")
private WebElement visitDateInput;

@FindBy(id = "btn-book-appointment")
private WebElement bookAppointmentBtn;

@FindBy(id = "radio_program_medicaid")
private WebElement medicaidCheck;

@FindBy(id = "radio_program_none")
private WebElement medicareCheck;

@FindBy(id = "txt_comment")
private WebElement noneCheck;

@FindBy(name = "hospital_readmission")
private WebElement readMissionCheck;


public boolean isOnPage() {
try {
log.info("Check is on appointment page.");
return divAppointment.isDisplayed();
} catch (Exception ex) {
return false;
}
}

public void fillAppointmentDetails(String facility, String visitDate, String comment) {
log.info("Fill appointment details.");
waitUntil(ExpectedConditions.elementToBeClickable(facilitySelect));
Select facilitySelectBox = new Select(facilitySelect);
facilitySelectBox.selectByVisibleText(facility);
medicaidCheck.click();
readMissionCheck.click();
visitDateInput.sendKeys(visitDate);
commentInput.sendKeys(comment);
bookAppointmentBtn.click();
}
}
