Can anyone explain in a simple format please?March 27, 2018 at 2:33 pm #18944EricParticipant@erictester
both are good testing tools, Selenium is open for integration with other tools and frameworks to enhance its capability, but Testing teams need to have good background in programming. The Katalon Studio is integrating necessary frameworks and features for fast test cases execution and creation. It’s also good for testers with limited technical knowledge.March 29, 2018 at 9:15 am #18965April 3, 2018 at 3:36 pm #19009April 9, 2018 at 12:03 am #19086
Though Katalon Studio is beginner friendly I prefer the flexibility of a Page Object Model-based framework from Selenium WebDriver over Katalon studio.April 9, 2018 at 12:49 pm #19100
I found a good article written by Rai on Huddle actuallyDecember 28, 2018 at 1:03 pm #21368SagarParticipant@sagarleo1
Selenium is an automation API available in various programming languages like Java, JS, Python, Ruby, C#. You need to download the library and create the automation framework of your choice. You should be strong enough in coding to solve the automation scenario-based problem.
Katalon studio is a software tool, has been built with readily usable features. You just need to configure the software and use it for automation. Programming knowledge not required.

Few more points I came across recently,
- Katalon is only Groovy(Java) based
There is no flexibility to add custom keywords
- In order to use it with different IDE’s, code export from Katalon requires to export with Native Jar’s & libraries
Edit: Now they support custom keywords, for more information please read the official documentation hereMay 21, 2019 at 1:21 pm #22268DavidParticipant@jhulax
wait, i thought katalon allowed for custom keyword generation? i just did it last weekMay 28, 2019 at 10:40 pm #22299
@jhulax, thanks for pointing out. Updated my comment now, I should have checked. I am not using Katalon anymore.June 25, 2019 at 8:26 am #22550VivianParticipant@vivianwilson
I have used Katalon Studio for 2 years and I think that Katalon Studio is one of the most powerful automation solutions in the industry. With a really user-friendly interface, it does not require avanced programming skill to use.

The two are good tools for testing:
1.designed with features that can be conveniently used. You just need to customize and use the software for automation purposes. Knowledge in programming not needed.
2. The Katalon Studio incorporates essential mechanisms and functionality for the implementation and development of quick test cases. It’s also useful for testing people with limited technical knowledge.
3. Knowledge in programming not needed.February 8, 2020 at 10:23 pm #24162AlexParticipant@tripleseven
I have mixed feelings about Katalon but since you asked for a simple answer (And this is from their website by the way): “Katalon Studio uses the Selenium engine for automated testing of Web applications.”
Katalon is a framework around Eclipse that allows you to utilize Selenium or Apium.
Hope that helps.
