Article about TestLink and Hudson integration published

kinow @ Dec 10, 2010 10:52:22

Since September I’ve been working on a project to integrate TestLink and Hudson. The project consists basically in a Hudson Plug-in that uses TestLink Java API to retrieve information of Automated Test Cases created in TestLink. You can read more about the plug-in in the following address: http://wiki.hudson-ci.org/display/HUDSON/TestLink+Plugin.

I wrote an article in conjunction with Anderson dos Santos about this Plug-in. The article was published by Testing Experience in its December issue. The issue’s topic is Open Source Tools. You can download the whole magazine from Testing Experience website (I highly recommend downloading the magazine, there are some great articles there!).

Since we wrote the article we changed only the way we parsed the test reports. Instead of parsing only TAP report files, we decided implement TAP, JUnit and TestNG parsers. In the future we plan adding more parsers to others *nits and Selenium report files.

The plug-in is being used to automate acceptance tests in a CRM system that was developed by Sysmap Solutions. I will write about the automation process, experiences learned and mistakes to be avoided in future projects as soon as we finish writing the automated tests and setting up the Selenium Farm.

In the following days I’ll be writing more tutorials, guides and recording some video tutorials. In February of the next year this automation solution will be presented in the Belgium Testing Days event.

Automating tests with Hudson and TestLink (pt-BR only)

Slides used at Encontro Ágil 2010. As soon as I finish the plug-in 2.0 version I’ll upload a video with a sample demo too.

Encontro Ágil 2010 - Lighting talk about Test Automation with TestLink and Hudson

kinow @ Nov 02, 2010 11:45:09

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.

Cheers

New version of CCM Hudson Plugin released

kinow @ Sep 28, 2010 08:55:53

Yesterday I released a new version of CCM Hudson Plugin. In this version, 1.0.1, there are two bugs fixed (7522 and 7531). For a more detailed background on these two issues check out Hudson JIRA.

Both bugs were reported by Sven Borman. The first BUG referred to a problem executing CCM Hudson Plugin in distributed environments. Although I’ve read the documentation for making plugins behave in distributed environments I forgot to use the Callable interfaces to execute some parts of the code in the Slave and then serialize the result back to the master node.

And the latter BUG was a problem executing the command in a Windows 2003 environment. In the beginning I thought there would be something wrong in the BUG description. Bug after setting up a Virtual Machine with Windows 2003 I noticed that the command without double quotes didn’t work correctly in the Windows 2003. Although it worked in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Nice catch Sven! Cheers.

CafePress Hudson Store

If you use Hudson as build trigger, continuous integration system or crontab replacement, you can contribute to Hudson buying from CafePress Hudson Store. I bought a polo shirt few months ago. It was my first acquisition from CafePress and I was worried about quality and the difference in sizes from US and Brazil.

However the quality was very good and it fitted perfectly. I wear P in Brazil and bought a S white polo shirt. I believe that after the currency conversion, I paid like R$ 30 plus post.
