Welcome to the group for the plumbers who keep the community plumbing from leaking. ;)
Testing frameworks such as SimpleTest and Selenium, automated testing, and general community QA initiatives are all on-topic here.
Manual testing is also totally on-topic.
Hi everyone! To have a better control over testing, it's a good idea to implement a CI (continuous integration system) that will make many processes automatic. A great option for CI is Jenkins - due to its simplicity and flexibility. Jenkins testing, especially a combination of Jenkins and Selenium IDE tests, is described in the blog post by our QA. http://internetdevels.com/blog/jenkins-selenium-testing
I would like to share our project http://backtrac.io that allows to track visual changes on the site. This tools comes very handy when your project is in support phase so there are some unexpected changes happen during releases.
Main features of the tool are:
* ability to compare production with staging environments
* bypass basic authentication
* run automated scheduling screenshot capturing and comparisons
* email notifications
* authenticate a bot before capturing screenshots so you can test site with different accounts
The main aim of DrupalCI is to rebuild Drupal's current testbot infrastructure (which is currently powered by an aging Drupal 6 site) to industry-standard components such as Jenkins, Docker, and so on, architected to be generally useful outside of Drupal.org. See Nick Schuch's Architecting DrupalCI at DrupalCon Amsterdam blog post for more details.
The goal is to end the sprint with an "MVP" product on production hardware, with integration to Drupal.org, which can be used to demonstrate a full end-to-end D8 core ‘simpletest’ test run request from Drupal.org through to results appearing on the results server.
This is a particularly important initiative to help with, since it not only unblocks Drupal 8 from shipping, it also makes available awesome new testing tools for all Drupal.org projects!
Go Team! :)
I just wanted to share the slides from the workshop I gave during the European Drupal Days 2015 in Milan(Italy) with this group as I hope someone might find them interesting or useful :)
Feedbacks and/questions are of course welcome!
After successful completion of Global Code Sprint at Kelton Tech (Kudos to them) ,we have planned next Code Sprint in Delhi at Srijan Technologies. This code sprint would not be specific to Drupal 8 ,those who are interested in Drupal 7 are most welcomed.Please consider this post as an invitation to be a part of the day.Please find the Venue details:
Event Date- 14th March
8D, Vandana building, 11 - Tolstoy road,

We have created an integration testing framework for Drupal based on PHPUnit. It simplifies creating and maintaining integration tests for Drupal. It understands Drupal so a lot of tedious tasks are done by it in the background and the developer can concentrate on just testing business logic.Read more
I wanted to share something I published today: http://drupalignite.com.
Basically it's a tool and a set of practices to setup a Drupal environment under a full Continuous Integration cycle using some well-known tools as drush, phing, composer and jenkins for the build phase, phpunit and behat for the testing and features and migrate for keeping everything (structure and data) in a code driven development shape.
I published the introduction, the following chapters will be published in the next months!
You can find the code on github: https://github.com/omissis/drupal-ignite
I've just committed a patch (http://drupal.org/node/1495510) to the core Taxonomy module. The patch includes an addition of a database column. The automated tests fail, seemingly because the database that the tests are being run on doesn't have the extra field: http://qa.drupal.org/pifr/test/373168
Is that what's happening? If not, what's going on? Is there a way to make the tests pass?

I'm writing up a bunch of tests as scenarios in Behat/Mink for an application written in D7 that has a gmap/Google map as its central purpose. I want to automate at least one test of clicking on a map pin to see if a popup window appears.
Unfortunately this map's pins don't have a standard A HREF link which would get detected by "follow" or "press" -- at least that I can tell. The pin markup looks like:Read more
Hi Folks, I'm working in a module to run Unit Tests in Drupal with PHPUnit.
Actually the project is in a Sandbox state and is current development, but I wanna receive some feedback, opinion, suggestions, critics, features request, etc.
If anyone is interested in more data please put in contact with me.
Thanks and Regards
I try to create an automated test for my drupal 7 site to test my rather complex access logic. I am using features, git and drush and a couple of shell scripts for staging. Works great.
My site involves a node access control based on several facts. I wrote a custom module (actually a feature) to create the workflow rules (other workflow module were not fitting my needs)
- workflow_state (custom field)
- workflow history
- global roles
- organic group roles
I wrote a blog post about testing contributed modules' upgrade and update paths:
As I haven't found a lot of information about this on the web, any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd also like to know if any of you do this, and how you go about it.
Some of you may be familiar with the QA Checklist module. (Try a demo.) It provides a list of modules to install and best practices to follow when building and deploying a Drupal site, and it tracks your progress against it. It's kind of a pre-flight checklist, and though somewhat rudimentary, it's helpful—especially for inexperienced site builders.Read more
I make checklist, but i don't confident this list is right,
Load & Performance
check functional on server phpmail, and other functions and apps for server
check version module drupal.org on site.
test developer modules (write test by simple test).
Automated Functional Testing Selenium , Windmill etc
check configure on server (rewrite for module, files private etc), security file permission
check security review, (drupal module)
delete files in “/”
Hi there, I'm using Windows 7, IIS, PHP 5.3.10 nts running with FastCGI, SQL Server 2008 R2 with PDO 2.0 drivers for windows to run Drupal.
I'm suffering a very slow behavior running the Drupal Tests, never ends to run the tests, the others parts of the site works fine.
Any thought about what may is happening ?
We've been working on implementing continuous integration for our projects to improve code quality. In the process we've built two templates which should make it easy to setup CI for new projects and want to share these with the community. Hopefully you'll find it useful!Read more
Hi there Testing group!
I'm happy to announce the release of the Behat integration module which allows developers to write tests for a Drupal site (or module) in "BDD"-style. BDD is a methodology for writing software features "outside in", i.e. using plain language to describe a feature's behavior first and the actual test code second. Find more information on BDD at http://bdd.alexo.it.Read more
Say I have a module A, which has some features which work with module B, but module B is not a dependency.
To test said features, I create a whole new "Test A B" module whose sole purpose is to have module A and module B as a dependency, and run tests against features which require both. "Test A B" module is stored in the "tests" subfolder of module A.
Wondering if that's the best approach, and if you are using any others.
