(English) In-depth Description of Medical Devices Software Testing

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.In this blog post series medical devices software developer Julien Zaegel describes the process of testing software for medical devices, including automated tests, supervised tests and manual tests. Julien provides a detailed view on how quality assurance for software for medical devices works in order to ensure the safety and reliability required for devices of literally vital importance, as well as of course legal and regulatory compliance. He not only explains the various test processes, ... Read more

(English) Dependency Management for Angular Unit Tests Using TestModuleMetadata

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Since its inception it's always been one of the eminent design goals of Angular (and AngularJS before it) to make JavaScript applications easily testable and bake unit and E2E testing right into the development process. While the Angular team certainly has succeeded at this there's still the occasional snag you hit when writing unit or end-to-end tests. For the most part, the testing experience with Angular is terrific and testing JavaScript codebases has come ... Read more

(English) Testing REST Services with REST Assured

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.RESTful service testing can be unwieldy and difficult to get started with. Providing a REST API implies using a variety of technologies and techniques such as HTTP, JSON, authentication, various payload transfer mechanisms and content types. This is where a tool that abstracts over these technical details and facilitates their application comes in handy. REST Assured is a high-level DSL for testing REST APIs. It draws upon behaviour-driven development (BDD) and hence makes ... Read more

(English) Mockito 2 now available

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Last week version 2.1.0 of the Mockito testing framework for Java has been released. For more information on this latest iteration check out this page. As the name suggests, Mockito allows you to mock object behaviour during unit tests. When writing unit tests you only want to test a particular unit's behaviour (hence the name). Depending on the programming language used such a unit might be a function, a procedure or - most ...

Libraries.io and Dependency CI: Open Source Library Discovery and Dependency QA

Recently, I came across Libraries.io and its companion service Dependency CI. Libraries.io is an open source library catalogue that helps you find new libraries and keep track of the ones you already use in your projects. Once set up with a GitHub project, the service monitors the repository and notifies you in case there's a new version of a dependency available. Building upon this, Dependency CI is a continuous integration service that offers 'automatic compliance testing for all of the dependencies in your ... Read more

(English) Varying Degrees Of Software Quality And What To Do About It

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.When working on client projects I come across copious amounts of source code, which sometimes is very well-maintained, sometimes less so. The various code bases are as diverse as their owners and respective stakeholders: A few come with an inherent sense of quality, lots of unit tests serving as the specification for the product. They're typically delightful to maintain and extend. Some though at times leave the impression of having been cobbled together in a ... Read more

(English) Tracking Down Software Bugs, Automatically!

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Last week MIT researchers published an article about an automatic bug-repair system called Prophet. Prophet is a machine-learning system that learns general properties and patterns of successful error corrections in software and applies those patterns to making new error corrections in other programs. While the possibility of having software track down and fix bugs automatically (which effectively would mean creating self-correcting computer programs) is exciting enough in its own right, Prophet possibly has far-reaching ...

(English) Advice On Improving JavaScript Test Speed (by Shyp Engineering)

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.On their blog engineers of logistics service Shyp talk about how they improved the turn-around times of their JavaScript test suite by an order of magnitude of 3 (i.e. 1000x), which is no small achievement. In a modern software development process continuous integration and continuous deployment play a vital role. These ensure that your software always is in an deliverable, tested state and ideally is deployed to production systems in a timely manner when ... Read more

(English) Houdini – Automatically Generated Web App Tests

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Houdini is a new SaaS product - currently in private beta - that "watches you using your site and automatically generates end to end tests that run continuously in the cloud". After having added some JavaScript code to your web app Houdini will follow and record your clicks, inputs and actions. These recordings are then used for automatically generating tests that run continuously. So, if a code change breaks your app's front end behaviour ... Read more
