Radio Liferay Episode 59: Testing @ Liferay with Kristoffer Onias and Victor Ware

  Yay, another episode, and maybe in time to sweeten your trip to Devcon in Amsterdam. I spoke to Kristoffer Onias and Victor Ware. Both work on testing Liferay with different areas of interest. You'll hear quite a bit about what Liferay does internally on testing.

I actually talked to them quite a while ago, and the episode has been sitting on my disk since then.The numbers that you hear may no longer be accurate, but the overall information definitely is. Sorry for keeping it a secret for so long (there's an even longer kept secret... up next...)

We're talking about these (and more) topics

  • Different levels of Tests:
    • Unittests
    • Integration Tests
    • Functional Tests
  • How SPA influenced frontend testing
  • Selenium, Selenium IDE, Web Driver, Capybara, Docker, and Jenkins
  • How pull requests are tested before they reach their addressee
  • The scale of Liferay's testing infrastructure
  • KC's (at the time) still unnamed project. Watch out for him at the North American Symposium for updates to this. Oh, and: By now his project actually has a name: Testray
  • Maintenance of large test sets - UI locators etc.
  • SevenCogs and its resurrection
  • How to scale testing infrastructure for potentially a lot more servers and environments
  • The Test Pyramid
  • A wild idea: Livestream of test runs
  • Liferay's Testing Whitepaper and a Testing Webinar
  • 50 shades of red and its part 2

Radio Liferay Episode 41: The 37000ft overview of staging with Máté Thurzó

  Another first: This week's guest Máté Thurzó presents a brief 37000ft overview over Staging. Yes, this is literally 37000ft - we both were lucky to be invited to the North America Symposium 2014 and had the same flight back. Yes, this episode has been recorded 11277m over the atlantic ocean on the flight from Boston to Frankfurt, and it's also a first time that you see me use imperial units voluntarily.

We talked about

  • The problem that staging solves
    • "Workflow" for a whole site
  • What's new in staging in Liferay 6.2?
  • Staging in custom portlets
  • How LAR import/export relates to staging
  • Local vs. Remote Staging
  • The new staging UI: Visible Progress, Background processing
  • Performance rule of thumbs: "it depends" - I don't give the numbers here. Listen to the conversation to find out what it depends on.
  • Staging through multiple stages
  • The future of staging (in 7.0, available in the current milestone)
  • The effect of customer feedback on the future of staging. Hopefully you gave your feedback at Devcon, where Máté was attending to get more feedback. This episode should have been out by then; sorry, postprocessing took a while longer than anticipated.

Again, shoutout and big thank you to Auphonic for postproduction help. This time I really made them work. If you want to compare the result to the actual recording - let me know and you'll get a snippet of the raw file which they de-noised!

[...] This is a small and innocent question with a potentially huge answer - I doubt that you'll get a good answer here. And I also think that the inner workings of staging are not well documented other... [...] Read More
