Continuous Testing in the Cloud

  1. 1. Continuous Testing in the Cloud Using Selenium, Sauce Labs, GitHub, and Travis-CI
  2. 2. What is Continuous Integration? “Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice that requires developers to integrate code into a shared repository several times a day. Each check- in is then verified by an automated build, allowing teams to detect problems early.”
  3. 3. Our Continuous Integration Process 1. Create automated functional tests with Selenium 2. Our functional tests will run on Sauce Labs’ hosted browsers 3. Push our code changes to our hosted repository in GitHub 4. Our pushes will trigger a build run by the Travis-CI service which will run our tests on Sauce
  4. 4. Using Selenium for our Tests
  5. 5. What is Selenium? “Selenium, also known as Selenium 2 and WebDriver, is a UI automation toolkit used by software developers and QA engineers to test their web application on different web browsers. ” — Satya Avasarala, Selenium WebDriver Practical Guide
  6. 6. Working with Selenium Tests WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); driver.get(""); driver.findElement("gbqfq")).click(); driver.findElement("gbqfq")).sendKeys("sauce labs"); Selenium interacts with browser apps, like this Google search:
  7. 7. Demo
  8. 8. Using Sauce for our Test Runs
  9. 9. Sauce supports just about any platform you need for your test runs!
  10. 10. Configuring Tests for Sauce WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); driver.get(""); driver.findElement("gbqfq")).click(); driver.findElement("gbqfq")).sendKeys("sauce labs"); RemoteWebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver( new URL(“”), caps); DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities(); caps.setCapability("browserName", “firefox"); caps.setCapability("version", "22"); caps.setCapability("platform", "LINUX"); For Sauce we replace the standard WebDriver with RemoteWebDriver: Selenium interacts with browser apps, like this Google search: And then we add our desired browser and platform:

  12. 12. Using GitHub for our Project
  13. 13. What is GitHub? “GitHub is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git revision control system. GitHub offers both paid plans for private repositories, and free accounts for open source projects. ” —
  14. 14. Using Travis for our Builds
  15. 15. What is Travis-CI? “Travis-CI is a hosted, distributed continuous integration service used to build and test projects hosted at GitHub. Travis-CI automatically detects when a commit has been made and will try to build the project and run tests.” —
  16. 16. Configuring Travis for Sauce gem install travis travis init travis encrypt SAUCE_USERNAME=your_sauce_username --add travis encrypt SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX --add Next, initialize your project for use with Travis CI: First, install the Travis gem locally: We need to encrypt our credentials for safe use in GitHub:

  18. 18. Configuring GitHub for Travis git add .travis.yml git push origin master ..and commit our changes Now we add our Travis config file to our GitHub project: READY TO BUILD!!!
