WebDriver Backed Selenium---Selenium RC Integrated with WebDriver

Selenium Launched its version2 and they named it as Webdriver.The working and api of this webdriver is quite simple when compared with the Selenium RC which is implemented on JavaSCript and whose api is quite complex.

Many people started working in RC and they are getting familiar with this api, Thought works released their version 2 suddenly which is different from their version 1 .This makes the selenium testers a bit confusion.

Later in their second version they integrated Selenium RC api and they named it as Webdriver backed selenuim,using which testers can write their Test cases using RC as well as Webdriver apis.
