Web Application Testing @ SDForum October 6th

Updated: Added links to presentation and source code.

I’ll be down in Palo Alto speaking about Automated Web Application Testing Tuesday October 6th. If you’re interest in getting a peek at the typical Carbon Five Java web architecture along with a variety of strategies and techniques for testing, c’mon down and join us. The session will be primarily code-driven. I’ll implement a few features along with unit, integration and functional tests and show off some of the techniques and custom tools that help keep things simple and easy during development. Some of the topics include:

  • Brief overview of our typical web architecture and tools stack
  • Differences between Unit, Integration and Functional Tests
  • Dealing with the database (schema and fixtures)
  • Where does test coverage pay off the most?
  • In-browser and out-of-browser functional testing
  • Carbon Five best practices, custom tools and techniques
  • And more…

You can find the gritty details on the SDForum site.

Doors at 6:30 and the show begins at 7:00. Hope to see you there!
