Thanks kompacto !
There are no free lunches !
I want a website made on drupal !
You can use the bar all saturdays, but I
want you to build a website for me.
Anytime you come here, i can ask you
for improvements on the website.
I Expect no bugs!
I expect no downtimes.
I Want 10M Users.
Whatelse do we need?
Let’s do it!
Each meeting we develop new modules
We can only spend 2 hours on it, and
we are very tired because is weekend,
and free beer is not enzimatic.
We have new people every meeting.
We can’t screw what we have done !
Selenium to save the day
Record actions you use to perform when doing things on your
website using IDE.
Actions are converted in commands.
Use assertX() and verifyX() to check if you find expected
elements on DOM.
Save test case.
Run them again. Join them in test suites. Run then where you
want when you want.
Meeting 1 - Demo
I want to create events
I want to list them
Meeting 1 – Test node creation
Meeting 2 – Test event listing
id=id: Select the element with the specified @id attribute.
name=name: Select the first element with the specified @name
xpathExpression: Locate an element using an XPath expression.
link=textPattern: Select the link (anchor) element which
contains text matching the specified pattern.
AJAX compatible (waitForX ...)
Verify Common Elements (titles, js alerts, etc..)
Services in the cloud can run these tests for you
Run them all , using command line
Run a html test suite in Selenium RC
java -jar selenium-server.jar -htmlSuite *firefox http://kompacto /Users/hernani/
