Module 6 – Using Source Code Control to Manage Our Test Artefacts

May 15, 2016
Module 6 - Using Source Code Control to Manage Our Test Artefacts In this final module we’re looking how we can best control all of our test resources and files. We’ve created Selenium, SoapUI and JMeter tests. The files for all of these tests are now scattered all over our distributed test automation environment. Not great for colloaboration, maintaining versions and backups. Down right dangerous really. What we need to do is pull all of our files together into one central repostiory. Well, with the tool we’re using, Git, it’s more a central distributed repostiory. ‘Central distributed repository’ sounds like a bit of a contradiction. We’ll explain that contradiction as we go through this. Anyway, we’ll be running up an...

Module 5 – Running Our Performance Tests with JMeter

May 9, 2016
In this Moudule we’re focusing on running our performance and load tests. We’ll create some simple scripts in JMeter and link the execution of these scripts into our build process with Jenkins. Once our Selenium functional tests and our SoapUI REST API tests are complete we’ll kick off these JMeter tests. The setup of this will cover these topics: 1. Install JMeter 2. Configure and Create Performance Tests 3. Add and Configure Jenkins Performance Plugin 4. Deploy and Run all our test jobs   To keep things simple we’ll use JMeter to test the performance using the Rocket Chat Rest Api. This will allow us to focus on the key concept of building the automation framework rather than getting to...
