How to effectively utilize the Java testing tool chain to successfully execute tests on Sauce Labs

The Java development ecosystem has always been a first class citizen in the functional browser testing space. Two problems most commonly faced are long test suite execution times as well as platform coverage and the infrastructure requirements associate with it. Even more so in a continuous integration setting.
In this session we will walk through an end to end showcase on how to leverage the Sauce Labs cloud testing platform to execute tests efficiently. We’ll take advantage of well established and familiar tools, like JUnit, Eclipse and Maven to illustrate best practices in the area of functional browser testing.

Three ingredients that go well together: JavaScript Unit Tests + Karma + Sauce Labs

Fueled by the possibilities of HTML5 a trend to move more and more application logic over to the frontend enjoys increasing popularity. Efforts to bring more structure into code bases have create frameworks like Backbone.js, Angular.js and Ember.js amongst others.
At the same time, test frameworks (e.g. Mocha, Jasmine, QUnit) have been created to satisfy the need to create and execute tests in the same environment that JavaScript code actually runs -- the browser.
In this session we’ll focus on how Sauce Labs can help JavaScript unit testers leverage the variety of browser platforms provided by their cloud platform. We’ll showcase how Karma, a smart test runner for JavaScript unit tests, and Sauce Labs will work together to make developers’ lives “bug free” and easier.
