In our previous blog, we discussed on Web Application Test Automation using Selenium WebDriver & TestNG. In this blog, we will discuss the main difference between Selenium 2 & 3. Selenium, for a long time, has been one of the most common automation tool used by testers and developers to provide automation testing services. While Selenium was still under development, an automation tool named QTP was popular. However, QTP (now UFT) is not an open source and has an expensive license fee. QTP was developed by Mercury Interactive. Selenium is known for curing Mercury poisoning, the new tools were named as Selenium, so as to provide a free open source alternative to the expensive automation tool developed by Mercury Interactive. Over the years, Selenium quickly grew from being just another automation tool to one of the heavyweights amongst the testing tools. Besides being the most popularly used freeware and open source automation tool, it has immense benefits for Test Automation. Amongst them, is the ease to get started with functional testing of web applications and also it support for various browsers. Selenium 2.53 has also been quite a popular and stable version of Selenium 2 and has been widely used by the testing communities around the world. But, the only thing constant in this world, is change. The Selenium 3 version has been released and it is more powerful and robust than Selenium 2. Some features of Selenium 2.0 are as follows ~ Minimum Java version required is below 7 or below. ~ Support Firefox browser version below 47.0 ~ It supports HeadLess Browser with HtmlWebDriver. ~ Selenium 2 supported selenium core for backward compatibility. ~ Selenium 2 provided the webdriver for each browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, IE, Microsoft Edge, Safari. The major version change from Selenium 2 to 3 means significant additions in terms of functionality and/or interface changes. Some of the major changes and additions apart from bug fixes from previous versions are ~ Java 8 is a must. ~ The support for browser drivers has changed for all the major browsers. ~ Developing W3C webdriver specification. ~ The original Selenium Core will be retired, which will have a significant impact on teams using Selenium Core. ~ Selenium 3.0 does not have HeadLess Driver. Earlier, the Selenium project has been maintaining webdriver for each browser. Now, the major browser vendors like Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox are providing their own implementation of the webdriver. Google will provide its own ChromeDriver. Mozilla’s GeckoDriver will be used for Firefox WebDriver. Apple’s SafariDriver will be used from Safari 10 onwards. Microsoft, too, will provide an EdgeDriver for their Edge Browser. As the Selenium WebDriver has been accepted as the W3C Standard. The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) develops common protocols, guidelines, and open standards. These standards will ensure that long-term development advance in the same direction, rather than diverging in different paths causing conflict. The W3C webdriver specification was much needed because browsers are complex, and delivering an established specification that all browser vendors must follow will have a positive impact on the testing community. Browser vendors must prepare for future W3C published webdriver specifications. As the webdrivers, henceforth, are going to be maintained by their respective browser vendors, it is predicted that the future webdrivers will be more stable as the browser vendors know their product well than the open source community. The journey from Selenium 2.53 to Selenium 3.1.2 will not be a tough one. Most of the automated tests written to work with 2.53 will also work with 3.1.2 seamlessly. The biggest change for most webdriver users will be using the geckodriver with Firefox. Yet, the automated tests need to be updated to work properly with future Selenium release and webdriver versions. Selenium Core users would have to upgrade to Selenium 3, as Selenium Core is longer supported. Conclusion Selenium has always been a popular automation testing tool among testers. And now with Selenium 3 release, the experience is set to get even better. Due to flawless and persistent work by the Selenium Community around the world, Selenium stands out among hundreds of other automation testing tools.
In the previous article Automation with SoapUI – Part I, we learned about various features of SoapUI for functionality testing of API services and automating test cases & creating Test Suites. However, the usage of SoapUI is not limited to Functional Testing. SoapUI has amazing abilities for non-functional testing like Performance Testing and Security Testing. One of the most important features of SoapUI for performance testing is that we can create complex functionality scenarios and then load test them. This helps test various business scenarios on different loads depending upon usage. In this blog, we will learn the various feature of SoapUI in the Performance Testing domain. Performance Testing can be classified into various categories - 1. Load Testing - In Load Testing, the Application Under Test (AUT) is subjected to a higher load than its handling capability to test the behavior of the AUT. 2. Stress Testing - In Stress Testing, the AUT is exposed to much Higher loads than its handling capacity to test its breaking point. 3. Soak Testing - The AUT is continuously subjected to high loads for long durations, to test its reliability for higher loads. 4. Baseline Testing - Testing the AUT for the expected normal load, and check how the AUT behaves under normal load. 5. Scalability Load - AUT is subjected to rapid & sudden variations in loads to check AUT behaviour under peak loads. A Load Test executes the parent Test Case repeatedly for a specific time with the required number of threads or virtual users. A load test can be added to a test case, by right-clicking the Test Case in the navigator panel and selecting New Load Test from the list menu. In the load test window, we can adjust various parameters like the Number of Threads, the Time Limit, Normal & Random Delay. Multiple Load Tests can be added to the Test cases and multiple load tests of multiple Test cases can be run in parallel to each other. Testing Strategies We can also select the strategy for the load test from the given options. These Strategies allow us to change the number of threads during execution, which allows us to change load while the load test progresses. Thus we can monitor the results, and change the load on the AUT as the Load Test executes. The data collected for the load test is shown in the Load Test statistics table and is continuously updated as the load test is being executed. The collection and of statistic data is asynchronous and independent from the actual Load Test execution, not affecting the load test directly. Let us see the load testing strategies 1. Simple Strategy In this strategy, a specified number of threads are running with the specified delay between each run to simulate a real-life scenario for the AUT. Simple Strategy is the default strategy in SoapUI. It has two fields namely Test Delay for entering the delay time and Random field to enter random delay time. The Simple Strategy is commonly used for Baseline testing. It helps to test the basic performance of the AUT and check if there are any bad responses or embedded resource download issues. This strategy can also be used for soak testing and load testing. 2. Variance Strategy In this strategy, the load varies over time in a sawtooth manner. There are two fields available in this field. First is the Interval field, where we can enter the period in seconds for which the variance in load will take place. Second is the Variance, that is by how much the load needs to be varied. This strategy is good for testing AUT under rapid changes in peak loads. 3. Burst Strategy In Burst Strategy, a high number of threads are executed for a short time to simulate a burst in web traffic. This strategy is used to test the recovery period of the AUT after it breaks for the unusually high load due to the Burst load. There are two fields in Burst mode namely Burst Delay, where we can enter the period for which the Burst load is to be delayed. Another field is Burst Duration, where we enter the period for which the high load is applied to the AUT. 4. Thread Strategy In this strategy, you can increase load linearly while the execution of the load test is on. Its main purpose is to identify on which level, statistics begin to deviate from normal behaviour and certain errors are occurring. There are two fields, Starts Threads and End Threads, where we can enter the number of the thread to start with and the number of threads to end with respectively. Test Statistics: In the Statistics table, we can see all the statistics related to the load test executed. There are various statistical parameters like CNT, TPS, BPS, error and many more to determine the result of the test and form a detailed report of the performance of the test case. For better visualization of test results, SoapUI provides two graphs showing results of the load test in graphical form. ~ The Statistics Graph shows all relevant statistics for a selected step or the entire test case over time, allowing you to see how values change when you increase the number of threads. ~ The Statistics History Graph shows a selected statistic value for all steps allowing you to compare them and see if the distribution of any value between test steps changes over time. - Assertions Similar to functional assertions in Test Steps of a Test Case to validate the results, we can add Load Test assertions to a Load Test to check both performance and functionality during the execution of the LoadTest. The assertions are continuously applied to Load Test and can fail the Load Test just like their functional counterpart. The assertions which you can add to load test are as follows - 1. Step Average - Asserts that the average value of a Test Step or Test Case doesn't exceed the specified limit. If the average goes above the value, it fails the load test. 2. Step TPS - Asserts the Transaction per Second (TPS) value for the corresponding Test Step or Test Case. If the TPS is less than specified, the load test is failed by this assertion. 3. Step Maximum - Asserts the maximum value for the corresponding Test Step or Test Case. If it exceeds the specified Max Time, the assertion is failed. 4. Step Status - Checks the errors occurring for the specified number of executing requests does not exceed the specified error limit, else the assertion is failed. 5. Max Errors - Checks that the number of failures for the Test Step or Test Case does not exceed the configured Max Absolute Errors and/or Max Relative Errors value. When execution of the Load Test, assertion failures are displayed in the Load Test Log. Double-clicking a log entry displays the corresponding result, allowing you to view the failed request message. Conclusion SoapUI provides a unique solution to many problems posed to load test your functional automation testing. The various strategies available help in testing the AUT in many different ways and scenarios. The Statistics table provide statistics which are easy to understand and interpret. And Assertions check if the load test statistics are within specified limits. For Load testing API functional tests, SoapUI definitely seems a worthy option.
The appearance of APIs (Application Programming Interface) and communication protocols like SOAP and REST took software development into an altogether different level. It became relatively easy to integrate completely different services and develop more powerful and useful softwares. APIs became an important part of software development and also one on which the entire software are sometime depended on. This led to the developers and more specifically, testers, to focus on making APIs more reliable and bug free as much as possible. API Testing today, is an integral part of the testing process. The APIs must be tested thoroughly by integrating them with others APIs to check the combine response of entire user cases, before they are implemented in the software to avoid bug multiplication. This is where API Test Automation comes into the picture. API test automation helps reveal integration issues across the entire chain of services or systems, thus preventing number of bugs and issues, not to mention the time and efforts required to fix the issues after bug leakage. Even a small change in an API will give a different response, and will be detected by automating API testing. SoapUI is one of the leading open source cross-platform API Testing tool. Testers can execute various automated functional, regression, compliance, and load tests on SoapUI. SoapUI interface is one of the simplest, enabling both developers and testers users to test seamlessly. Let us discuss some of the most helpful features of SoapUI. Drag and Drop Test Creation SoapUI provides a great user interface for test creation using the drag and drop feature. For creating test cases, there is no need to code or script, one can simple drag the and drop the API requests in the project to test case without any hassle. So, it is equally easy for developers as well as QA engineers to create complex test cases and test suites. This features increases productivity and saves times & efforts needed to write test cases using coding or scripting. Assertions While automating API test cases, you need to verify if the response received is as expected. While it may be difficult and exhausting to verify the responses of each and every API in each and every test cases & suites manually, but it is necessary. To avoid this exhaustive process, SoapUI has Assertions. You add assertions to test cases to validate their responses while they are executed. If the response does not matches the expected response mentioned in the assertion, the test case is failed and execution stops. This helps in validation of API responses in functional automation testing. You can add assertions for response codes, script assertion, property value assertion and many more. Correlation For creating complex business logic scenarios and workflows, data from responses of APIs needs to be used as request body for other API. To correlate these data, SoapUI provides a Property Transfer step to save these values in properties (similar to variables) at various levels like Test Suite level, Test cases level, etc. These properties can be referred anywhere within an API request depending upon its scope of declaration level. A property at Test Suite level can be used in any test cases within the same test suites. Similarly, a property at Test Cases level can be used in the requests within the Test case. Correlation can be used for passing values generated during run-time or execution of automated test cases. Environment Developers and Testers need different environment to test API. Sometimes, both developers & testers need to run tests in different environment like staging, deployment, UAT (User Acceptance Testing) or production. SoapUI allows users to save multiple environments beforehand. User can adds different properties, database connections and services in different environment. User can change to different environment by just clicking on environment dropdown list and selecting the user defined environments. This allows user to save time by preventing tedious amount of efforts to change environments. Scripting Although, SoapUI does not need scripting to write test cases and create test suites, it can be used extensively for creating powerful and complex assertions and to manipulate the behaviour of the test cases according to needed specification. Using Groovy language, you can write scripts for test cases. Scripts can be written using various ways - 1. Script TestSteps - These steps will be executed when the test case in which it is included is run. 2. Setup and TearDown Scripts - These script steps are executed before and after a test case is run respectively. Setup script is executed before the test case, while TearDown script are executed after the test case is executed. 3. Script Assertion - User can create assertion for test case using Groovy scripts. This allows users to write more complex assertion making it more reliable. Scripting also allows users to expand the scope of the properties dynamically, so that test cases out the current scope can access the properties within the scope.Many more scripting options are available in SoapUI Pro version. Closing Note Automated API testing is important process of Quality Assurance of any mature software development company. SoapUI is a very powerful and valuable tool in the hands of developers and tester for functional, load, regression and integration testing. It allows QA engineers to work on the workflow and business logic level to test the functionality of the system under development. As the result, the stability of the system is regularly maintained to ensure its continuous operation during production and afterwards. There is a second blog in this series. Stay Tuned to read the next blog on SoapUI.
Swagger is a RESTful API documentation tool based on OpenApi Specification. It is a specification for machine-readable interface files for describing, producing, consuming, and visualizing RESTful web services (API). These documentation is so easy to understand that it can easily be interpreted by the clients without any server side code knowledge. Swagger consists of three tools in its system, these tools are used to document parameters, methods and models. They are as follow in their sequential order for execution:- ~ Swagger Inspector ~ Swagger Hub ~ Swagger UI Swagger Inspector When any web service (API) is developed, the very first step is to implement that API into Swagger Inspector for implementing that web service (API) into the Swagger Inspector, one need to have an account. After login successfully : 1. User needs to select desired method. 2. User needs to enter URL of the web service (API) in the text field which says “Any HTTP resource or the URL of an OpenAPI / WSDL definition”. 3. User can add new parameters and its value for the request. 4. Also, if the user needs to add more parameters than he/she can click on “ADD NEW PARAMETER”. 5. After adding parameters, user need to enter “Headers”. 6. Also, if the user needs to add more Headers than he/she can click on “ADD NEW HEADER”. 7. After adding Headers, user need to enter “Authentication”. There are three options to select from as Authentication. 8. After adding Authentication, if user selects “POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH” as method than Body is enabled because only these methods support Body for request. 9. If the Body is enabled, than user needs to enter request Body. This Body will be a JSON code. 10. After adding the Body, user needs to click on send button. 11. In response, final output of the request is shown in the “Response” area. 12. All the entries of Send Request are stored in the History section. From there user can use all the previously executed API’s by just clicking on the record. User needs to check the box shown beside the API name (URL) to add it to any particular collection, or else user can create new collection from here too. 13. User can view all the previously created collections and also view all the API’s added into that collections. 14. User needs to create definition for further process in Swagger Hub. So user needs to export this definition to Swagger 2.0 or 3.0, which can be done from here. Swagger Hub When any web service (API) is developed, the second step is to generate documentation of that particular web service (API). For generating the documentation Swagger Hub is used. These documentations are written in YAML language inside Swager Hubs editor. These is pre-written in the Swagger Hub, which is when we create definition from Swagger Inspector. 1. Also, if a user wants to create any new documentation than he/she can create it directly without using definition created from Swagger Inspector. 2. By clicking “Create New API”, user is able to create new API documentation by filling up the form. 3. By clicking “Create New API”, user user needs to fill up the data as per his/her requirements. 4. Sample code Swagger UI The very last step of Swagger Web Service (API) documentation is Swagger UI, it is the viewing / displaying of the Web Services (API) in the browser. There are two methods to view documentation. ~ Online 1. It can be viewed by clicking on Design View and selecting Preview Docs. It will open new tab and the Web Service (API) documentation will be shown. 2. To execute the Web Service (API) user needs to click on “Try it out”, by doing so user will be able to edit the request body & headers. 3. To run Web Service (API) after finalizing request body and headers, user needs to click on “Execute” button. Based on the request it will show response. ~ Offline To view the Web Service (API) in offline mode, user needs to download Swagger UI in their System. It can be downloaded from this page https://swagger.io/tools/swagger-ui/download/ There are some prerequisites to run Swagger UI offline ~ XAMPP ~ Downloaded zip of Swagger UI 1. After installing XAMPP, user needs to be directed to the following directory /var/www/html 2. In that folder create new folder named “swagger-ui”. After creating this folder extract the downloaded zip file in this folder and delete the zip file. 3. Open that extracted folder and go to “dist” folder, in that folder copy all the files in “dist” folder and paste it in the main “swagger-ui” folder and delete rest of the content. 4. Now go to the Swagger Hub source code and export the code to the JSON file. 5. Now paste that downloaded JSON file to the following directory /var/www/html/swagger-ui 6. Now open “index.html” and edit the url in the “index.html” to the file name of JSON. 7. Now open your browser and go to the URL which you set in the XAMPP, it will open your Web Service (API). To run the Web Service (API) click on “Try it out” so that you can enter request body & headers as per the need 8. To run Web Service (API) after finalizing request body and headers, user needs to click on “Execute” button. Based on the request it will show response. Conclusion Following all these steps sequentially one can perfectly obtain a API Service Testing documentation. It is best suited for the QA testers and the clients.
Performance Testing of a software is as important as any other activity required in the development of the software. Performance Testing is performed on a software to understand the behaviour of the software under a certain workload. Performance Testing is one of the key aspects of Quality Assurance of a software application. Performance Testing is one of the main types of Non-Functional Testing for software applications. It is briefly classified into Load Testing and Stress Testing. In Load Testing, the Application Under Test (AUT) is subjected to a specific expected load. In Stress Testing, the AUT is subjected to workload which is above the handling capacity of the application. This is done to determine the breaking point of the software. To simulate high workload, performance testing tools are used. One of the best and most commonly used performance testing tools in the market is Apache JMeter developed by the Apache Foundation. It is widely used across the globe for performance testing of Web Applications as well as Mobile Apps. Let’s learn in detail about Apache JMeter. The Apache JMeter application is an open source software and a pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It can be used to simulate a concurrent heavy load of virtual users on a server, group of servers or networks to test its strength, load handling capacity and to analyze overall performance under different load types. Lets us see some features of JMeter which makes it attractive to performance testers around the world. Open Source: As already mentioned, JMeter is an open source software and it is also a 100% pure Java application. The developer can use its source code, can modify and customize it as per their requirement. They can also contribute their code to make a better JMeter. Due to this feature, there are various interesting and helpful plugins available to use with JMeter, which were developed by the IT community worldwide. And since JMeter is a Java application, it is also platform independent. It can be operated without any problem in any operating system, be it Windows, Mac or Unix based Operating System. Realistic Performance Testing: In a real scenario of a large number of users using the application, the load of real users may not always increase or decrease gradually. The load may be normal at one minute, increase suddenly in the next, while it may decrease significantly the next minute and again increase suddenly afterward. This increase and decrease in the load may be gradual, exponential or sudden. Image Source: http://jmeterplugins.com/wiki/UltimateThreadGroup/index.html We can simulate this real-world load in JMeter. Using the Concurrency Thread Group or Ultimate Thread Group in JMeter, we can increase, decrease or hold a certain load for a specific period of time. We can also enter random time delays in the load test script to simulate actual user actions. This helps in simulating workload which are as close as possible to actual world scenarios. Script Recording: To load test an application a set of functionalities like Login, manipulating some data and logging out are generally tested. To simulate this action, instead of entering each request manually, we can record the functionality and re-run it for N multiple of Virtual users. This will simulate the scenario of multiple users accessing the functionality concurrently. To record a test in JMeter, we can use two methods - HTTP Proxy Recorder and Blazemeter Plugin. ~ HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder: In HTTP Test Script Recorder, we have to set up a proxy network in the system on which our application is running. We have to enter the port number of the IP address in HTTP Recorder, on which the JMeter will be listening for server activity. The server requests of the actions performed in the application will be recorded by the JMeter. The user can save the generated script and then run the script for multiple virtual users to simulate the action. The HTTP Recorder can be used for recording script in web applications as well as mobile apps. ~ Blazemeter Recorder: Blazemeter has developed a Google Chrome plugin for recording performance scripts. The Blazemeter plugin enables the user to record a script and later download the script for running it using JMeter. Similar to HTTP Proxy Recorder, it records all the HTTP/S requests that your browser sends. One drawback of Chrome’s Blazemeter plugin is that it cannot be used for recording mobile app performance scripts. Non-GUI Mode: While running a JMeter test using GUI mode, a lot of resources like memory, and Swap are consumed which may lead to faulty test results. JMeter provides a solution to this problem. JMeter can run load tests without the GUI, but from the Command Prompt or Terminal of the system. JMeter provides various commands for running JMeter from the command line. Reports generated during the load tests are saved at a location specified by the user. These reports can be used to generate graphs later on. Running on Non-GUI mode consumes much fewer resources than in GUI mode. Image Source: https://octoperf.com/blog/2017/10/19/how-to-analyze-jmeter-results/ For running JMeter from the command line, a user has to set up the test in JMeter using the GUI mode and save it to a specified location. JMeter GUI mode must be shut down before starting the test. The user then has to open the command line and navigate to the bin folder of Apache JMeter. From here, the user can give a command to JMeter like to run the test, save the result to a specific folder, generate dashboard report, run the test on specific servers, etc. Generating Graphs and Reports: JMeter is widely known for providing various graph, reports, and listeners. One of the key aspect of Performance Testing is Understanding and reporting the faults and drawbacks and taking necessary steps to correct them. To understand the results properly, JMeter can generate various graphs and reports. Some widely listeners are Tree listener, Table listener, Aggregate report listener. Using these listeners we can find various parameters like latency, response time, connect time of the performance test. This data can be used to make reports and understand the outcome of the test. Image source: https://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/generating-dashboard.html For a better understanding of the outcome of the test, JMeter has a Graph Listener, which can generate beautiful graphs to simplify the understanding of the outcome of the test. These reports and graphs can be exported to make the performance report. Server-Side Monitoring: During Performance Testing, it is important to know the health of your side and how the server responds to changes in the load. JMeter provides a PerfMon plugin which is used for collecting and monitoring Server metrics like CPU, Memory, Swap, Disks I/O and Networks I/O. The PerfMon plugin consists of two parts: ~ The Server Agent: The Server Agent has to be installed on the system on which the server of the AUT is running. The Server Agents collects information on the server and send the information to JMeter via TCP or UDP protocol. ~ The Metrics Collector Listener: The user can view the information through the Metrics Collector Listener. We can choose which metrics we want to monitor and JMeter generates graphs using those metrics. We can also export the metrics and graphs for later use. Image Source: https://udayhere.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/perfmon-for-jmeter/ Conclusion The large number of Plugins available for JMeter is the real reason behind the JMeter being the most widely used Load Testing tool. The simplicity and ease with which JMeter can be operated is also a plus point for performance testers. While there are many other performance tools for automation testing, but none are as successful as Apache JMeter.
