Updating Sauce Labs dashboard with Selenium 2 test results


If you have not yet known of Sauce Labs, Sauce Labs specialises in executing Selenium tests on cloud. If you don't want to manage those umpteen configurations for executing your Selenium tests, then Sauce Labs is the answer. I am not going to explain executing your Selenium tests on Sauce Labs as there is enough documentation on Sauce Labs which already explains this. What I was stuck with is updating test results on Sauce Labs dashboard. Status "finished" does not indicate about success/failure of tests and you may probably not have time to see log/video of each and every finished tests.



I posted query to Sauce Labs and got to know about the Sauce Labs REST api. But things were still not very clear as I was not sure of on what basis I could update test results in Sauce Labs dashboard.
How do I get to know from a tests whether it succeeded or not and then update the Sauce Labs dashboard. This is when TestNG came to my rescue. TestNG ITestResult could be injected in tear down method to find the status of test execution and on the basis of this Sauce Labs dashboard could be set with pass or fail status.


I also found it useful to update the job name with name of test method to make Sauce Labs dashboard results more comprehensible. This is how my tear down method looks -


And here is the Sauce Labs dashboard with test status -

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

Note: If you are new to java and selenium then start with selenium java training videos .     Email confirmation seems to be integral part of any registration process.

Distributed Load Testing with JMeter

Distributed Testing with JMeter When one JMeter client is not able to offer amount of threads required for load testing then distributed testing is used. In distributed testing - One instance of JMeter client can control number of JMeter instances and collect data from them Test plan does not need to be copied to each server, the client sends it to all servers note - JMeter will run all the threads on all the servers, hence 100 threads on 5 JMeter server would pump 500 threads in total. If many server instances are used, the client JMeter can become overloaded and so the client network connection. This has been improved in latest versions of JMeter by switching to Stripped modes, but you should always check that your client is not overloaded When Client (master) and Server (slave) nodes are on same network (no SSH required) Configure Client Node Herein client is referred as the machine controlling test execution on other JMeter nodes. This is also referred
