Integration vs Unit testing #qa #testing

A less technical view of unit testing would be driving a car around a lab, race track, or some other controlled environment. Integration testing would be the equivalent of driving the car outside in the real world. So testing self driving Google Cars around Austin  would be integration testing for Google Cars.

Configuring SauceLabs with Selenium and Serenity

GitHub Example Repository

Saucelabs Selenium Test

Serenity makes life pretty easy because it integrates well with Saucelabs. It’s as simple as adding the credentials and browser information into the serenity.properties file.

A useful tool is the list of platforms. Saucelabs only provides a certain variety of OS/Browser combinations so you have to make sure to run the correct combination. Also on the Saucelabs website we can find WIN7, however in Selenium WIN7 is not a valid enum, so we have to use vista instead. Here’s the list of valid platforms directly from Selenium source.

For example:

## Firefox 
## https://saucelabs.com/beta/tests/a604701041db440697fdd7148fcc6ff3/watch
saucelabs.test.name=OpenSourceTest_1
webdriver.driver=firefox
saucelabs.url=http://<username>:<key>@ondemand.saucelabs.com:80/wd/hub
saucelabs.target.platform=WIN8
saucelabs.driver.version=42
saucelabs.access.key=<key>
saucelabs.user.id=<username>

##Internet Explorer 10
## https://saucelabs.com/beta/tests/36bbc3ebb45a48fb9a97da8046aa7dfd/watch
saucelabs.test.name=OpenSourceTest_1
webdriver.driver=iexplorer
saucelabs.url=http://<username>:<key>@ondemand.saucelabs.com:80/wd/hub
saucelabs.target.platform=WIN8
saucelabs.driver.version=10
saucelabs.access.key=<key>
saucelabs.user.id=<username>

##Internet Explorer 9
## https://saucelabs.com/beta/tests/c1ba02f7182f43f6895f0563ad843745/watch
saucelabs.test.name=OpenSourceTest_1
webdriver.driver=iexplorer
saucelabs.url=http://<username>:<key>@ondemand.saucelabs.com:80/wd/hub
saucelabs.target.platform=vista
saucelabs.driver.version=9
saucelabs.access.key=<key>
saucelabs.user.id=<username>

JBehave and Selenium Testing with IntelliJ IDEA example

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing QA testing using Serenity, Selenium, and JBehave. I’ve been writing tests and configuring a framework to test our websites and I’m more and more convinced about the power of JBehave. You can find my learning Github repo at JBehave social example. Also for the most part I recommend using Idea IntelliJ.
