Contract and Design

Some enterprise architects believe that SOA can help businesses respond more quickly and cost-effectively to changing market-conditions. This style of architecture promotes reuse at the macro (service) level rather than micro (classes) level. It can also simplify interconnection to - and usage of - existing IT (legacy) assets.

SOA Manifesto

OA Manifesto Service orientation is a paradigm that frames what you do. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a type of architecture that results from applying service orientation. We have been applying service orientation to help organizations consistently deliver sustainable business value, with increased agility and cost effectiveness, in line with changing business needs.

Web service protocols

SOA and Web service protocols Implementers commonly build SOAs using web services standards (for example, SOAP) that have gained broad industry acceptance. These standards (also referred to as Web Service specifications) also provide greater interoperability and some protection from lock-in to proprietary vendor software.

Web services approach

Web services can implement a service-oriented architecture. Web services make functional building-blocks accessible over standard Internet protocols independent of platforms and programming languages. These services can represent either new applications or just wrappers around existing legacy systems to make them network-enabled. Each SOA building block can play one or both of two roles

In order to efficiently use a SOA, the architecture must meet the following requirements: * Interoperability among different systems and programming languages that provides the basis for integration between applications on different platforms through a communication protocol.

Description and Overview

Commentators have provided multiple definitions of SOA. The OASIS group and the Open Group have both created formal definitions. OASIS defines SOA as the following:A paradigm for organizing and utilizing distributed capabilities that may be under the control of different ownership domains. It provides a uniform means to offer, discover, interact with and use capabilities to produce desired effects consistent with measurable preconditions and expectations.

SOA - Service Oriented Architecture

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a network design that uses Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to define and locate services provided businesses. As it appears, many proclaim it is the simplest of network service access methods. The concept simply use the current web structure with some sophistication in "browser accessing" the requested URL.

Automated Testing of Applications on Android using ROBOTIUM

The primary purpose to calibrate a set automation tools is to perform data driven automated testing applications on Android.

  • Start with setting up the environment using following tools: Install JDK, Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede) or greater and Android Development Tools plug-in.
  • Next install Android Emulator from the eclipse window menu select Android SDK and AVD Manager.
  • After the environment was setup successfully, I started with creating a very simple temperature convertor application to better understand the architecture & UI interfaces of the Android SDK.

XUnit - Code Driven Testing

XUnit - Code Driven Testing What are xUnit tools? But, before answering this question lets define and understand the 'code driven testing' term

Code Driven Testing Code driven test automation is a key feature of Agile software development, where it is known as Test-driven development (TDD). Unit tests are written to define the functionality before the code is written. Only when all tests pass is the code considered complete. Proponents argue that it produces software that is both more reliable and less costly than code that is tested by manual exploration. It is considered more reliable because the code coverage is better, and because it is run constantly during development rather than once at the end of a waterfall development cycle. The developer discovers defects immediately upon making a change, when it is least expensive to fix. Finally, code refactoring is safer; transforming the code into a simpler form with less code duplication, but equivalent behavior, is much less likely to introduce new defects.

ROI of Automation Effort

You can start with the simple RIO formula, but then you have to take in consideration all the other criteria according to your product, service and targets. You will have to accumulate your product values and targets into numbers, for example: How much it is worth for you to be first in quality level ? How much it is worth to you to be first and fast into market ? How complicated is your product, can you keep the high quality with profession less resources.

Unit Testing For Managers

When having Test Driven development process, sometimes even as a part of the Agile or Scrum developing strategy, we want to make everything much faster and efficient. One way suggested was to design the unit tests even before the coding process by the ones who are responsible for requirement definitions and coding implementation. Ok, you're thinking about the many organizational problems it can cause, and how impractical it seems. Is it worth the effort and bumpy ride, just for the sake of it ?

GUI Testing

To test a GUI, you need a reliable method of finding components of interest, clicking buttons, selecting cells in a table, dragging things about. In fact you need a 'Bot' that will activate all The User Interfaces, Buttons, Windows, etc. like human user does. The GUI test need a full description of the expected behavior of the User Interface controls, and its process is similar to any developing process. Gui test also had to make sure that the GUI stands on the customer requirements as well.

Automatic Testing Awareness

Does automatic testing solve all the testing needs? Does it solve more than it creates? Can we minimize the problems that it creates? Does discipline approach help? Well, most of the Automatic testing problems and needs can be solved but still lets be aware.

Testing Automation Framework and Testing Tool

Tools are specifically designed to target some particular test environment. Such as: Windows automation tool, web automation tool etc. It serves as driving agent for an automation process. However, automation framework is not a tool to perform some specific task, but is an infrastructure that provides the solution where different tools can plug itself and do their job in an unified manner. Hence providing a common platform to the automation engineer doing their job. There are various types of frameworks.

Do We Realy need Testing Tools ?

Testing tools can help automate tasks such as product installation, test data creation, GUI interaction, problem detection (consider parsing or polling agents equipped with oracles), defect logging, etc., without necessarily automating tests in an end-to-end fashion. One must keep satisfying popular requirements when thinking of test automation:

Graphical User Interface testing

Graphical User Interface (GUI) testing - GUI testing tools know how to grab the information on every object or window seen on screen, it can be a windows object or an html element, or other depend on the operating system information API. 
Some tools can even set a virtual blocks on the screen and follow them as an object.
After recording the test scenario the tester can edit the script and add to it parameters, conditions, loops, etc., This might requires some scripting skills, but not necessary the traditional scripting language.

Code Driven Testing

A growing trend in software development is the use of xUnit testing frameworks JUnitNUnit, PhpUnit, etc. they allow unit tests executions to test specific code scenarios and sections. It can also help on testing code API with few argument options.
Test cases describe test scenarios that need to be verify to make sure the program runs as expected and according to its requirements. Code Drive Testing, and code driven test automation is a key feature of Agile software development practice. 
Code drive testing also know as Test Driven Development (TDD).
