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.
