JSFUnit is a test framework for JSF applications. It is designed to allow complete integration testing and unit testing of JSF applications using a simplified API. JSFUnit tests run inside the container, which provides the developer full access to managed beans, the FacesContext, EL Expressions, and the internal JSF component tree. It also provides access to parsed HTML output of each client request. After each faces request, you get access to the full internal state of your application through the FacesContext. With the FacesContext in hand, you have the keys to the kingdom. Between the JSF API and the JSFUnit helper classes, you can see what "really happened" after each request.
HP Unified Functional Testing, the advanced solution for functional test and regression test automation. This solution deploys the concept of keyword-driven testing to enhance test creation and maintenance. HP UFT software automates testing through an intuitive, visual user experience that ties manual, automated, and framework-based testing together in one IDE. This solution significantly reduces the cost and complexity of the functional testing process while driving continuous quality.
JWebUnit is a Java framework that facilitates creation of acceptance tests for web applications. It evolved from a project where we were using HttpUnit and JUnit to create acceptance tests. As the tests were being written, they were continuously refactored to remove duplication and other bad smells in the test code. JWebUnit is the result of these refactorings. It wraps existing testing frameworks such as HtmlUnit and Selenium with a unified, simple testing interface to allow you to quickly test the correctness of your web applications.
UISpec is a Behavior Driven Development framework for the iPhone that provides a full automated testing solution that drives the actual iPhone UI. It is modeled after the very popular RSpec for Ruby. To make finding specific views in the iPhone UI easy, UISpec includes a very powerful view traversal DSL called UIQuery. Not only can you easily traverse the view heirarchy, you can also interact with the views you find.
HTTP Test Tool is a script based tool for testing and benchmarking web applications, web servers, proxy servers and web browsers. httest can emulate clients and servers even in the same test script. Advanced HTTP protocol handling, including ne-grained timeout handling, request and response validation, Simulating clients and servers, including startup and shutdown of server daemons. This allows to create mock-ups of back-end systems in more complex test situations Execution of external commandline tools, using their output as request or response data, or for validation purposes.
DbUnit is a JUnit extension (also usable with Ant) targeted at database-driven projects that, among other things, puts the database into a known state between test runs. DbUnit has the ability to export and import the database data to and from XML datasets. Since version 2.0, DbUnit can also work with very large datasets when used in streaming mode. DbUnit can also help to verify that the database data match an expected set of values. DbUnit includes a comprehensive test suite.
TestShell is an object-oriented test and lab automation platform. It delivers powerful lab management, and test automation solutions for network and cloud environments. TestShell provides complete control of physical and virtual devices in the testing environment. An open device driver builder feature enables testing teams to easily create device control objects and quickly refactor them to adapt to changing conditions and requirements.
eggPlant is TestPlant’s GUI automation and software testing product. This black-box driven test tool does not interact with the underlying code, eggPlant is ideal for GUI test automation and black-box testing of any application including those that can cause problems for other tools such as: Flash,. Java, HTML, .Net, Silverlight. eggPlant is used for the entire testing process, from authoring scripts to evaluating results. EggPlant is installed on one computer per license. From there, you can author scripts and run them against any other computer. EggPlant uses Virtual Network Computing (VNC) to “look at” the SUT and send mouse and keyboard commands to it.
SilkCentralTM Test Manager is an open test management solution which unifies all test assets into one easy-to-use planning, tracking, reporting and execution hub. It is a powerful, open software test management solution for both agile and traditional development projects. It provides an integrated framework for improving productivity, traceability and visibility for all types of software testing. Its openness, flexibility and traceability make it a solution for agile or traditional delivery approaches looking to implement a continuous approach to software quality.
JUnit is a unit testing framework for the Java programming language. JUnit has been important in the development of test-driven development, and is one of a family of unit testing frameworks which is collectively known as xUnit that originated with SUnit. JUnit is linked as a JAR at compile-time; the framework resides under package junit.framework for JUnit 3.8 and earlier, and under packageorg.junit for JUnit 4 and later.
xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework. Written by the original inventor of NUnit, xUnit.net is the latest technology for unit testing C#, F#, VB.NET and other .NET languages. Works with ReSharper, CodeRush, and TestDriven.NET. xUnit.net is part of the ASP.NET Open Source Gallery under the Outercurve Foundation. It is licensed under the Apache 2 license, which is approved by the OSI.
QMetry facilitates the conventional testing cycle as well as agile life cycle while allowing to link requirements to test cases and to defects. QMetry empowers to monitor quality at every step of the test management cycle. Ultimately, providing an end to end coverage and traceability. QMetry adapts to your existing processes and seamlessly integrates with other ALM tools to ensure ROI right from day one.
JSystem is an open-source framework for writing and running automated software tests, for both software and embedded applications. The aim of JSystem is to provide one simple central framework for functional and system testing of software. A unique characteristic of JSystem is its simplicity and scalability: the JSystem architecture comprises of four layers, with a clear distinction between the underlying business logic of the test and the graphic user interface (GUI). The JSystem structural design affords true scalability to the testing project: as the product evolves the user can build additional tests based on the original solution - without the need to rewrite tests: a mark of a truly sustainable testing project.
SonarQube -the open source quality platform- has become a must-have of any mature development projects. SonarQube is a code quality management platform, dedicated to continuously analyze and measure technical quality, from the projects portfolio to the class method. The SonarQube platform provides Continuous Inspection capability on applications portfolios to track quality defects and report them into customizable dashboards (technical debt, test coverage, duplications, architecture integrity, rule compliance, complexity, etc.). SonarQube performs analysis on billions lines of code.
Google Test is an excellent xUnit style c++ unit testing framework. One (minor) drawback of Google Test is it's text based UI.This project is a standalone .Net 2.0 executable which displays a UI for a Google Test based harness with the following elements:
A progress bar which is either green or red, according to test success
A list of all failures and their details upon click
The UI saves a history of several runs (configurable), allows command line parameters to be passed to the test program and gives convenient access to the following google test features:
forcing execution of disabled tests
The project is written in C# and runs on Windows and Linux (under mono)
The unittest unit testing framework was originally inspired by JUnit and has a similar flavor as major unit testing frameworks in other languages. It supports test automation, sharing of setup and shutdown code for tests, aggregation of tests into collections, and independence of the tests from the reporting framework.
This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest. Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner. After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.
