This is my favorite url if you need to use SerenityBDD and Sprint Boot starter project : https://github.com/lpicquet/serenity-cucumber-spring
Recently have some trouble automating an Application using Angular using Selenium and SerenityBDD.
I found a component that helps a lot. NGWebDriver
How to search an element and interact with it?
Also it could be handy to sometime wait that Angular load everything by using:
Also I had to revise a bit my Xpath way of working. Here is a good tutorial : https://www.guru99.com/xpath-selenium.html
Here some note I took while exploring Jmeter.
- jmeter 5.0
- Ensure to have added in PATH the location of the bin folder of jmeter
- jre 1.8
How to start Jmeter GUI
- Go where you have downloaded the binaries then run `jmeter.bat` using command line. Or type jmeter.bat if you have the bin folder of jmeter in the PATH.
- Do not run performance test with GUI. Only for design and debugging purpose with low charge.
How to run Jmeter in command line
- jmeter -n -e -l appLog.csv -o appReport -t app.jmx
- `-n` to run in cli mode
- `-e` to create a report at the end of the run. It requires `-l`
- `-l` log file name and path
- `-t` testplan file and path
- `-o` path where the report is generated
- Use the HTTP(S) test Script Recorder with the port 8000
- On the Root > Add > Non-Test Elements > HTTP(S) test Script Recorder
- Use firefox and setup the proxy to 8000
- Record under the current : “HTTP(S) test Script Recorder” then copy the step in each “Recording Controller”
- On a Thread Group > Add > Logic Controller > Recording Controller
- Record each step with a different label
- HTTP Sample settings : Prefix
- Update each step with a meaning step name
- Avoid to “Retrive All Embedded Ressources” to keep it simple.
- Avoid “Redirect Automatically”
- Allow “Follow Redirects”
- Alkow “Use KeepAlive”
Thread Group structure
- “HTTP Request Defaults” : to setup the default root url
- On a Thread Group > Add > Config Elements > HTTP Request Defaults
- “HTTP Cookie Manager” : to handle the cookie reset at each iteration
- On a Thread Group > Add > Config Elements > HTTP Cookie Manager
- “User Parameters” : to handle the variables and users
- On a Thread Group > Add > Pro Processors > User Parameters
- “Debug Sampler” : to retrieve all the variables for debug purpose
- On a Thread Group > Add > Sampler > User Parameters
- “View Results Tree” : to see all the step details
- On a Thread Group > Add > Listener > View Results Tree
- “Summary Report” : to see the metrics
- On a Thread Group > Add > Listener > Summary Report
To catch value in response
- Use Json Extractor : It allow to get a value in json by using JSON Path expression and assign to an existing (JMeter Variable Name to use) or new variables (Names of created variables) with n variables separated by coma.
- On the http request > Add > Pro Processors > Json Extractor
- master/slave architecture for distributed testing : https://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/jmeter_distributed_testing_step_by_step.pdf
I had some trouble lately with some Angular interface. So here interesting work around I found.
Scenario 1 : You have a list of checkbox to click, they are not hidden but hidden under an other element. Like hidden behind a pop-up window or a menu button, but they should partially visible for a human user.
The work around : move the checkbox to a visible position in the page. How?
js.executeScript("arguments.setAttribute('style', 'top: 0px');", windowElement);
