  • Model-based API Testing Recorded: Apr 25 2019 64 mins
    Ben Johnson Ward
    Traditional API Testing offers well-known benefits like speed, robustness, and ease of automation as compared to testing via the UI. While testing an API as exhaustively as possible is often the most effective way to know if each component is behaving the way it should, this is still dependent on the extent of test coverage provided.

    Shackled by slow incomplete manual test designs, API Testing is missing key metrics to help optimize test plans. Testers have difficulty prioritizing what needs to be tested, while developers are unable to shorten test runs and fail fast for more immediate feedback. So how do we compliment API Testing with the power of Model-based Testing (MBT) for maximum testing coverage and efficiency by optimizing our test design?

    Join MBT expert Ben Johnson Ward as he dives into a fully integrated end-to-end API testing framework/pipeline to rapidly test a live webservice. Using a powerful MBT test generation solution, he will show how to generate executable REST-assured API tests with enriched reporting, as well as manage requirements changes in the application and their impact on testing.

    You'll learn:
    - Automate test design/creation with Model-based Testing tool Agile Requirements Designer (ARD)
    - Creating REST-assured API tests utilizing ARD and executing with Java
    - How to quickly generate tests for any scenario or coverage goal
    - How to react efficiently to changing requirements to keep our automated testing in-sprint
    - How to generate enriched test result reports

  • Eliminate test environment dependencies in your CI/CD pipeline Recorded: Apr 16 2019 61 mins
    Koustubh Warty and Petr Vlasek
    Enormous savings and quality benefits are possible from shifting testing left to development, but dependencies can make that goal difficult to achieve. Often, services you need to test against are either still in development, cost money to hit (3rd party services) or are simply not available. Sure, you can write a simple mock, but the inherent limitations in types of services you can cover and responses that can be returned often leads to inadequate tests and potential escaped defects.

    Now, you can create ephemeral test environments, complete with robust virtual services. Shift unit testing left by eliminating dependencies on unavailable services, services still in development, or unavailable services right from your IDE. In this webinar we’ll discuss:

    - Best practices for creating robust virtual services for developer use cases
    - How to easily share those services throughout the organization
    - Where to get started today, for free
  • Site Reliability and Chaos Engineering: Tools to Continuous Delivery Quality Recorded: Mar 25 2019 60 mins
    Shamim Ahmed
    Site Reliability Engineering (or SRE) has been gaining popularity recently to help improve reliability of systems as well as a prescriptive approach to implementing DevOps. Testers similarly play a key role in helping to balance the needs of velocity with overall system quality.

    SREs develop, maintain and operate software that automates the traditional roles of the system administrator at large scale, such as configuration and cluster management systems, and that support reliability and scalability goals, such as container virtualization and the systems architecture of microservices

    In this webinar we’ll explore:
    * The synergies and differences between SREs and testers
    * How testers can work with SREs and development teams to balance the needs of velocity and quality
    * Tools to help integrate SRE into Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery
Plan, Build, Develop, Test, Release—it’s all relative.
New approaches like DevOps or the adoption of a Digital Transformation strategy are meant to make life easier and simpler to creating quality applications faster with better quality and at lower costs, but do they? Maybe. They’ll help put structure in place for team collaboration or deliver an experience your customers won’t forget, but development teams still face the constraints of development through deployment. From development, testing and the management of releases, organizations and their customers have had to deal with ineffective service delivery, compounded by the silos of development, system administration, and operations. CA solutions for DevOps and Continuous Delivery can help you eliminate constraints across the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC), allow developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel for faster delivery and more reliable outcomes, all the way through deployment and feedback from IT Operations. Get the information you need when you need it in these thought provoking sessions live or on-demand. Be a member of channel to receive updates, best practices and advice from industry thought leaders on how to eliminate constraints across your SDLC.
