Effective test management is an important element of a software development process. A well-planned and organized test management can ensure that the best possible software is produced within fixed time and resources.
The necessity to develop increasingly sophisticated software solutions has led to comprehensive,
In this post, I am going to show how to create load tests for a REST API application with the help of Gatling 2. This will be a step-by-step guide — starting from integrating Gatling 2 using SBT plugin, creating/configuring test scenarios, and all the way to running the Gatling tests.
In my previous GORM related article, "Association Types in GORM", I have described how to create different types of relationships using Grails ORM. In this article, I would like to talk about several advanced GORM features that may help you in the development process, such as:
One of the steps towards building a successful distributed software system is establishing effective configuration management. It is a complex engineering process which is responsible for planning, identifying, tracking and verifying changes in the software and its configuration as well as maintaining configuration integrity throughout the life cycle of the system.
Let's consider how to store and manage configuration settings of the entire system and its components using Apache ZooKeeper, a high-performance coordination service for distributed applications.
The primary purpose of any commercial website is to effectively sale services or products. That is where the user experience design which includes various usability solutions comes into focus. This article considers key concepts of the user experience and usability and answers the basic questions:
Every computer user has to deal with boring and time-consuming operations such as sending a lot of similar emails, converting files between formats, making backups and so on. Mac OS has a handy tool that is called AppleScript which can perform all these tasks for an user. This post shows how to start with AppleScript and how to use it in order to "communicate" with MAC applications.
Here you can find out how to create integration tests for RESTful service on the example of application shown in the article "Building REST service with Scala". To create the tests, I am going to use spray-testkit DSL, as it provides a simple way to test route logic for services built with spray-routing.
Test cases are the key elements of testing, therefore the ability to write effective tests is one of the most important technical skills of a quality assurance engineer. This post covers conditions to writing efficient test cases, the most preferable naming conventions, and the best practices on structuring and writing the tests.
