Let’s face it - testing native mobile apps isn’t easy. Trying to record and create test scenarios without spending hours on setup (or tearing your hair out in frustration) is even harder! Earlier this month, we held an interactive meetup at BlazeMeter’s offices in Mountain View to tackle this very issue. CEO & Founder Alon Girmonsky took us through the steps of recording a test scenario - without jailbreaking or setting up software.
All about Continuous Testing, DevOps, JMeter, and more!
When it comes to performance testing, JMeter is fantastic... but not perfect. Automation and integration with other systems can be a pain and the tool itself comes with a steep learning curve. We recently held a webinar to show you how to overcome these challenges, thanks to a new open-source automation tool called Taurus.
Recording and creating test scenarios for native apps is a huge challenge. Fortunately, there is an easier way - and we've just held a webinar to show you exactly what this is! In this webinar, BlazeMeter's Ophir Prusak covered how to: Cut testing time from hours to minutes Record a test scenario using a native mobile app without jailbreaking or setting up recording software Create load tests by browsing your device (including all iOS & Android phones and tablets) Record the HTTP/HTTPS traffic going from the native app to the backend Export your recording as a JSON or JMX file - or as a URL list to instantly run your load test
This is a guest blog post by Micah Knox, Software Architect and CTO of Employee Assessment Delivery Platform SonicAssess, a new service designed to assess the talents and leadership capabilities of employment candidates. To ensure the platform would be able to cope with extremely high traffic loads, Micah validated its performance by running tests before its release.
Automated testing allows you to detect errors instantly and deliver software rapidly throughout the Continuous Integration (CI) process.
If you were to make a list of factors that could bring your web and/or mobile apps to a screeching halt, bathing suits aren't the first thing that spring to mind! However, this is exactly what brought down Target a few days ago.
Velocity 2015 is just over a month away! With close to 100 sessions, lectures and tutorials on everything from DevOps to Organizational Optimization, the choice is overwhelming. There are loads of interesting sessions and, typically, many of the sessions clash! So, I’ve narrowed it down to the top five unmissable sessions specifically for DevOps. If, like me, you’re practising DevOps, feel free to borrow my list! :) First off, here are 3 sessions that I’ll definitely be attending:
Ensuring that scalability won’t be a problem tomorrow requires extensive, accurate testing today. At BlazeMeter, we strive to provide our clients with unmatched test capabilities. However, as developers push the boundaries of social media and mobile technology, even we sometimes have to adjust our service to help them validate theirs. Sound complicated? Consider our recent engagement with Sidecastr. Validating a New Idea: Synchronizing Disjointed Experiences
When it comes to performance testing, it’s crucial that you can reuse response data. Almost (if not all!) load test scenarios assume that you: Extract interesting aspects from a previous response and reuse them in the next request (a.k.a Correlation) Ensure the actual response matches expectations (a.k.a. Assertion)
