Software tests that look at the system as a black box are extremely valuable. These tests are external to the application and exercise the application as a user would. This article examines how Spring Roo supports web testing using the Selenium automated web testing tool.
Software testing is labor intensive, requires expensive switches in context, involves so much grunt work that it stifles creativity and slows down productivity, and, finally, it often ignores product and customer risks. Come and learn about the latest Google has to offer in open source test tools that help manual testers by eliminating much of the grunt work, keeping them focused on testing, and helping them prioritize their efforts based on risk. Chief among these are BITE, Quality Bots, Test Analytics, and Script Cover, the first two of which are …
Selenium is a popular framework for testing the user interface (UI) of a web application. It is an extremely powerful tool for running end-to-end functional tests. You can write tests in several programming languages and Selenium executes them into one or multiple browsers.
SST or Selenium Simple Test is an open source web test framework that uses Python to generate functional browser-based tests. The tests are made up of scripts, created by composing actions that drive a browser and assert conditions. You enjoy the flexibility of the full Python language, along with a convenient set of functions to simplify web testing, but the commands are simple and flexible enough that the tool can also be used by non-programmers.
Web Consistency Testing is a new form of automated Web testing that answers the simple question “does this page look the way it should?”. Historically, the way a page looks has been relegated to the status of “design artifact” and as such, been treated as something that must be tested with human eyes.
SOA Web services are now supported by most of major software development companies and industry. To be reliable, these ones require to be developed with respect to a complete software development life cycle and, in particular, they need to be tested. Test purpose-based methods are black box testing techniques which take advantage of reducing the time required for test derivation in comparison with exhaustive methods.
This Selenium tutorial is intended for people having an interest in testing web applications. Its objectives are to show you how to write tests that effectively test your applications but also how to integrate Selenium in your existing testing processes following the good practices that this tool requires.
This video explains why we need to develop page components for our tests in order to create smaller and more dynamic page components. Web pages are no more the monolithic static pages of the past. They contain a lot of small elements that we interact with, so being able to focus on the components is a better solution to automate the testing of web applications.
