On November 6th (next Saturday) Anderson Santos and I will present a Test Automation solution built on TestLink and Hudson at Encontro Ágil 2010. This meeting is for intended for the Agile community and will be hold at IME-USP (Instituto de Matemática e Estatística - Universidade de Sáo Paulo).

In our demonstration we will be using TestLink 1.9 HEAD version, Hudson 1.366 and TestLink Hudson Plug-in 2.0-SNAPSHOT. This TestLink Hudson Plug-in version is still not released as we are finishing to code the integration between the plug-in and TAP through tap4j, an implementation of TAP - Test Anything Protocol.

What is nice about this solution is that we aren’t trying to use TestLink as an Automation Tool. But yes, as a Test Management Tool (what TestLink is by nature). And the choice of the Test Execution Tool is up to you, as long as you generate TAP Stream (basically, files containing a log of tests executed). We only enable you to have these tests updated on your TestLink installation, this way you can plan a Test Cycle with both Manual and Automated Tests in one single tool.

And lastly but not less important, this week Testing Experience Magazine accepted a proposal of article for the next issue on Open Source Tools about this solution. So we are working very hard to release TestLink Hudson Plug-in new version and spread this Test Automation Solution through the Testing/Quality community.
