WebPagetest is an awesome tool, but out of the box there isn’t an easy way to run large numbers of tests and get performance trends over time. This video presents wpt-script, an open source tool that makes this process much easier. wpt-script is the short name for WebPagetest Script, a simple wrapper for the WebPagetest API that allows you to easily generate tests and graph results.
This article from Alan Bowers and James Bell provides an introduction to setting up a software testing infrastructure using Selenium WebDriver and Cucumber. It shows how to create a test suite for single-page web applications and to run tests across multiple web and mobile browsers via Selenium Grid.
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 the focus of this talk.
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.
