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 57: Jim Hinkey and Cody Hoag on documentation

  Today I'm welcoming a repeat guest and a new one: Jim Hinkey (of episode 21 fame) and Cody Hoag - both from Liferay's documentation and knowledge management team. This episode has unfortunately suffered from various disturbances in the space-time-continuum: I had it sitting on my disk for quite a while. The Javadoc Contest that we've "started" in this episode was actually published/announced in the meantime and unfortunately ended recently. Congratulations to Sébastien and Marcellus. However, not to render the call for action in this episode useless, let's start another one soon - there can't be enough Javadoc, and I admit that we have still plenty of opportunities to write new documentation left for you. Please subscribe to the comments on Cody's winner's announcements to see the update - I'll also mention it on a Radio Liferay episode once it's been restarted. But I'll also put a word in for you if you already write the javadoc now.

In this episode we're talking about these (and more) topics

  • glimpse of history - remembering episode 21 with Jim
  • Javadoc coverage went up from then on
  • Javadoc metrics tool by Cody
  • Javadoc contribution process: Send to liferay user repo, tag Cody @codyhoag
  • Javadoc guidelines on dev.liferay.com (two flavors - basic and advanced guidelines)
  • Submitting Unit Tests together with Javadoc
  • The new home for documentation, dev.liferay.com
  • "Edit on github" available for documentation. Use it - it's easy.
  • Documentation: Javadoc, Taglibraries and other duties of the team.
    (mention Mike Williams on taglib pullrequests)
  • docs.liferay.com and its content
    blade repository (in the meantime moved from Ray's to Liferay's repository)
  • BREAKING_CHANGES.markdown
  • Migration Tutorials (WAR->7.0->modules) on dev.liferay.com
  • "blade migrate" is (at least temporarily) out??? (summoning Greg)
  • the current Javadoc Contest and a cheesy mentioning of 2015's internal javadoc contest) (#2 Igor Beslic, #1 Moi)
    • (and some hints on how to dominate a javadoc contest)
