Welcome to Radio Liferay, a peek into what is going on in Liferay from the people doing it themselves.
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...)
- Different levels of Tests:
- 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 51: Ray Auge - Modularization I - Motivation
Another Devcon "private" session - I missed his presentations, but got the summary right when he was done: Ray Augé took the time to answer all sorts of questions about the Modularization in Liferay 7. In fact, he answered so many questions that we made it a 2-episode recording. This week it's about the motivation for modularization: What problem does it solve? Next week will be more technical, telling you about the implications of the updated architecture to your code.
As we recorded this on site at Devcon, you'll hear more background noise than usual - As usual, Auphonic did their best to clean the recording, and they did a great job.
- OSGi in Liferay 6.2 vs Liferay 7.0
- Modularization of Liferay 7.0
- Surprisingly (not!), modularization is not yet fully done, but it came a lot further than expected initially
- How much do you have to re-learn to build plugins for Liferay 7
- James: Community Roadmap Talk from Devcon (note: Ray also had several presentations at Devcon, you'll find his recordings there as well)
- Now everybody should be able to work the same way: Internally in Liferay's core as well as externally, in the plugins.
- Ant vs Maven vs others? What's the story with Liferay's supported Build environments? More energy will go into build tools other than the SDK
- Of course we cover a release date :) I'm getting a very rough one from Ray :)
