Debug Mode

My friend and fellow teammate – Trung – has been spending time with me to help me understand how to debug failing tests and code. He showed me how to put break points in Eclipse and then to run the test in debug mode. When it hits the breakpoint, the test can move line by line of the code – by hitting F6. F8, will run through the rest of it without break/stopping. This has helped... »

First Acceptance Test!

Pretty excited. I put together my first acceptance test today. One problem we’re running into is the lack of ID’s on elements. We don’t want to use x Paths to find elements on the page. So when I created this, I hit this problem… my dev’s Trung and Victor were able to add ID’s for me and I put together a communication test! I login as a matched user, select a ma... »


Victor and I set up forking logic to support HTMLUnit and FF. That way we’ll have the ability to call a headless client test or a Firefox browser in the acceptance test run. »

setup: properties files.

We’re now using a properties file to define which db we are running acceptance tests against. Since we have several QA environments, we need to be able to call these different login scripts to each db. This is pretty cool. Victor showed me how to set up the properties file to support our different environments »

I work with some really cool Dev’s… so on my Pilot team, they took the time out to help me with my Eclipse env issues from this weekend. The DB errors were only specific to one specific test. My other tests were good (db connection wise) so i was on the right track. that feels good. My acceptance tests weren’t running because I was not extending them correctly! Victor, the dev I&... »

Eclipse… grr….

This was a hair pulling weekend. I got pretty pissed off with Eclipse. it somewhat balanced with my initial Java application success in the last post. Now I’m frustrated as I can’t run any of the damn acceptance tests! It’s an eclipse environment problem. Eclipse is complaining it can’t communicate with the database. I’m also not getting the JUnit option when running ... »

My First Working App in JAVA!

OK – This weekend I got Eclipse set up. I’ve been working the past couple weeks in picking up Java. I found I couldn’t really find resources to teach Groovy without first learning Java. Most Groovy resources are written to Java dev’s. So I started with Java. I’ve been learning the JAVA basics so I can now pick up Groovy. Backwards, I know, but I don’t know how e... »

Leaving the Selenium IDE Crutches

When we started the pilot, I would write tests in Selenium IDE (just recording actions) then convert those scripts to Groovy and pass them to the developers. These developers would then write out the actual tests. The Architect has made a request today: He wants QA to start writing the acceptance tests. I’m a bit nervous – this is entirely new to me. New ground… but, damnit iR... »

So I’ve been on the Pilot Program to achieve a foothold into the continuous integration/deployment realm. We have an architect leading our work. His name is Josh. Josh has worked with Thoughtworks and has some interesting ideas. Our main goal is to get a framework of acceptance tests that extend out as we create new features in this team. As we get a new project, we will create the tickets w... »

First Post

Well I was informed I’ll be on a new and exciting project. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment is a big concept these days. A lot of people talk about it, and have various ways of implementing it. Here at eHarmony – we’ll be tackling this ourselves. My background is QA. I’m a QA Eng. I haven’t used an IDE and haven’t developed in Java before. I̵... »
