A couple of words about Page Object

Often in the testing of web applications, every form on a page is described as a separate entity (object) – usually, one single form (in most cases it represents an isolated functionality) is equal to a separate class.

The form may be described as: public class Login { IWebDriver driver; public Login(IWebDriver driver) { this.driver = driver; } //the class contains only one method //this …

It’s because the SDET is almost a software developer: he deeply knows programming languages, design patterns, algorithms. He can create a high-quality, maintainable, and performant code. He creates tools for automated testing, writes his own frameworks – such kind of work is more complicated and, therefore, should be better-paying.
