New Automating Microservices Testing in 2018

The year 2018 has brought various advancements in the field of test automation. Now, as we move towards the trending technology, let’s find out what the year has on cards for all the test automation fraternities and enterprises out there! Test automation is getting adopted increasingly by organizations, to strike the right balance between cost, time and quality.

Today I am going to write about the main approaches for automating microservices testing in 2018. But before going into detail I want to show you what is automation microservices testing?

“Microservices testing is based on a software development architecture, where a service is achieved by developing small module. Each of the small modules is tested separately using the approaches of automation microservices testing and as a result quality service is achieved.”

Here are some of the most used and well-known approaches to automation microservices testing continue reading and educate yourself about the automation microservices testing.

Unit Testing

Unit testing will also be one of the top priorities among enterprises to ensure accuracy, corrections and overall health of the application data and information. In unit testing, an application or software is divided into small units and each unit tests separately. Mobile testing is one of the latest trends in unit testing and in future it might be replaced or overtake web test automation.

Integration Testing

Advancements in containerizations sponsor the rise of the microservice architecture by applying the integration approach in which the development, testing and deployment of services is quicker and more self-contained. Individual service units can be moved, shaped, or reformed at high speed, with minimum dependencies and impacts on others. In integration testing, the internal services of the product test and compare with the external requirements.

End-to-End Testing

The higher level of test automation is required to ensure quality and efficiency of the project lifecycle. Continuous testing and automation enable faster time to market. Testing for defect prevention, not detection! Implementing test automation right from the beginning will prevent defects to get into the code. Testing is performed at each and every step of the software development process from requirement gathering to analysis and from design to implementation.

User Interface (UI) and Functional Testing

Creating a friendly UI is an increasingly challenging job. An interface must satisfy all user’s expectations, or it will have a little value. User interface testing is the highest approach to any testing methodology in which a product is tested as an end user. End-user experience is very important as the end user would use it. In this approach, the QA analyst behaves like the end user and interacts with the system. All the functional requirements are tested with respect to the end user.

Hope the above content will help you in the understanding of actually is the automation microservices testing is and how it is applied in the different situation by following there approaches. Intelligent, self-learning and self-monitored technology are reducing cost through different approaches to microservices test automation. Have a nice day!!!!
