Linux Desktop Testing Project

  •        5448

Linux Desktop Testing Project is aimed at producing high quality test automation framework (using GNOME / Python) and cutting-edge tools that can be used to test Linux Desktop and improve it. It uses the Accessibility libraries to poke through the application's user interface. We strive to help in building a quality desktop.

The GNU LDTP core framework uses Appmap and the recorded test-cases to test an application and then gives the status of each test-case as output. As of now, GNU LDTP can test any GNOME-based GUI applications, which are accessibility-enabled, Mozilla,, any Java application (should have a UI based on swing) and KDE 4.0 applications based on QT 4.0 (based on the press releases by KDE).

Its features include

  • LDTP concepts are derived from Software Automation Framework Support
  • LDTP supports verification of actions performed (guiexist, verifystate, etc)
  • Writing test scripts are very easy, the script writer need not know about the object hierarchy
  • CPU / Memory performance monitoring of application-under-test can be measured
  • From the XML log, we can gather HTML report using XSLT
  • Group based execution, which provides precise control on the flow of test-script execution
  • Scripts can be written as a reusable component and for that the data can be stored / retrieved in XML
  • User-friendly Text Editor with syntax highlighting for generating and grouping test data
  • Objects are identified both statically and dynamically
  • Record / Playback

Moderator comments: Ubuntu, GNOME are using this framework.

KIF - Keep It Functional - An iOS Functional Testing Framework

IMPORTANT! Even though KIF is used to test your UI, you need to add it to your Unit Test target, not your UI Test target. The magic of KIF is that it allows you to drive your UI from your unit tests and reap all the advantages of testing in-process. KIF, which stands for Keep It Functional, is an iOS integration test framework. It allows for easy automation of iOS apps by leveraging the accessibility attributes that the OS makes available for those with visual disabilities.

mountebank - Over the wire test doubles

In fact, halfway through we discovered our corporate mocking software couldn’t handle the sheer amount of performance testing we were running as part of this effort (we completely crushed some pretty industrial enterprise software in the process). As a result, we made the call to move the entire program over to a Mountebank OSS-based solution with a custom provision to give us the ability to expand/shrink our mocking needs on demand. mountebank is the first open source tool to provide cross-platform, multi-protocol test doubles over the wire. Just point your application to mountebank instead of the real dependency, and test like you would with traditional stubs and mocks.
