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 42: Zsigmond Rab on Enterprise Support

  At Devcon, I took the opportunity to meet several people - stay tuned for several more episodes during the rest of this year. For this episode, I spoke with Zsigmond Rab. Zsigmond is Lead Engineer, Technical Support & Trainer at Liferay Hungary. This is a short and informal tongue-in-cheek talk about support-related issues.

We talked and joked about

  • The structure of the Hungarian Support teams
  • How bugs unexpected features are handled
  • How to make sure that these don't show up again in the next version
  • Fixpacks, Hotfixes, Servicepacks
  • Other worldwide support teams

You might or might not know that Liferay's business is built on Enterprise Edition - and specifically on the support services that we offer here. This is what keeps the new versions coming. This episode is meant to give you some information about the procedures that happen when you (as a customer) file an issue for Liferay support. Compared to the actual internal workflow, this is simplified, but gives sufficient insight. If you want more details, please comment.

Hi All, I made a huge mistake. I forgot to... Zsigmond Rab December 9, 2014 8:21 AM

Hi All,

I made a huge mistake. I forgot to mention the Indian support office.

Indian support guys, please, believe me, that was because of the stage fright only. I owe you because of this. You can ask anything.

Regards,
Zsigmond
