Q: What is the difference between UiPath and Selenium?


Selenium is specifically designed to to test web applications and websites, it is impossible in selenium to interact with multiple applications and taking output of one application as an input for other application. It can not work with Virtual environments like ctrix etc at all.

While UI Path is a RPA tool which is designed to automate any type of existing software process to replace any type of activities that can be performed by human.

So we can say RPA is the next level of existing automation tools. It allow people to build a very complex rules based process with very little software development skills.

You can do all things using UI Path which can be done by Selenium but vise versa is not possible. You can also look at my below articles for more details on these tools.
