Vaadin TestBench Features

Simple UI test automation

Vaadin TestBench is deeply integrated with Vaadin and this makes it very easy to add test automation to your existing projects. Vaadin specific selectors and API provide the most convenient testing environment for testing Vaadin applications.

Start simply by creating your first test case:

public void testClickButton() throws Exception {

    // Click the button
    ButtonElement clickMeButton = $(ButtonElement.class).
    caption("Click Me").first();;

    // There should now be one label
    assertEquals(1, $(LabelElement.class).all().size());

    // ... with the specified text
    assertEquals("Thank you for clicking",

Serious test automation

Many big Vaadin projects use Vaadin TestBench. In fact, we use it to test the Vaadin Framework itself. There are over 6500 tests written in Vaadin TestBench that we run every day.

Get started


Start your testing by simply including TestBench as a Maven dependency. Write your test using JUnit and execute locally for Test Driven Development (TDD). Continue with Continuous Integration (CI) and run your tests on every commit to ensure your quality matches your end-user expectations.
