Interesting facts

Being inspired by Watir, WatiN shares many of the same concepts and limitations as all WatiX (‘X’ being the language specific version, such as WatiN for .NET, Watir for Ruby or Watij for Java) frameworks. It’s important to remember that the ‘X’ not only represents the development environment of the WatiX libraries but also the environment that will be used in the creation of the actual test code. This means that there is no secondary scripting language to master. You only need to be proficient in the language specific to your flavor of WatiX. It’s also important to note that WatiN is browser dependent and only supports automation against Internet Explorer and Firefox. So if you are planning a cross browser testing effort with Safari or Opera requirements, you may want to look into other products.
