Re: [ljc] Survey Testing Tools and Performance Testing you guys use.

Hi Alex,

If I can make an observation - when you make these posts, you never really tell us why you want to know about the topics you mention.

It's really important to do so - "How do I use technology X to achieve aim Y?" is not a neutral question - because it has all sorts of assumptions baked into it.

As a case in point - JMeter and YourKit are not performance testing tools. They are very specific analysis tools which are occasionally used in performance analysis.

If you think performance testing == profiling, then you're doing it wrong. End of.

It's the equivalent of thinking that the only tool a trauma surgeon needs is an electron microscope, and it terms of what it can do to your application, it's just as dangerous.

I wanted to do a survey on the types of tools people use to do testing.

I have looked into several tools now and came up with this list:

Behavior Driven Development: Cucumber, Capybara, Rspec, Rspec steps
Automation Web Testing: Waitr, Selenium Web Driver
Performance Testing: Jmeter, YourKit,

Continuous Integration: Bamboo Jenkins, Git (not sure how to configure it however)

Testing on the Cloud by running Amazon ec2 threads

TDD: Junit, Easymock, TestNG, Mockit

Please if you could add your experiences of testing tools and performance tools

Just out of interest does anyone also have experience with these technologies:

CruiseControl, CC.rb, Cruise/Go,, Hudson, Anthill Pro, Twist, Cucumber, Jbehave, Fitnesse, Concordion, Rspec, Selenium, Selenium-Remote Control, Selenium-IDE, Selenium Grid, Web Driver, Sahi, Frankenstein, FIT, Watir, Capybara, SauceLabs, SilkTest, QTP, Mingle, Rally, Hudson, PivotalTracker
