What tools do we work with?

IBM offers software testing capabilities that combine test automation and service virtualization to achieve continuous testing and therefore delivery. And those capabilities have integrations across a variety of open source and other non-IBM tools. See the figure below for an overview of the possible integrations to achieve continuous testing and expand the sections below for more details.

ToolsChart

In addition, IBM supports, encourages, and contributes to open-source solutions by integrating Selenium tests into our functional test solution. Rational Test Workbench allows you to create test scenarios that span mobile, web, and traditional desktop applications, and Selenium tests can be included in the scenarios. Test scenarios include advanced flow control (e.g. loops, synch points, random selectors) and passing of variables across tests.

The below examples reflect IBM’s commitment to open standards. Rational Test Workbench provides multiple extensibility and integration points into bespoke frameworks:

  • Tests and virtual services can be triggered from test management or deployment automation tools, and results are automatically populated for real-time status. ANT tasks are also available for inclusion in custom solutions.
  • Virtual services can also be managed and executed through a set of RESTful APIs.
  • Eclipse IDE provides a plug-in model for SCM, task and defect management, and other complementary extensions.
  • Java extensibility allows the call out to external libraries or extensions.
  • Rational Test Workbench can make use of data held in CSV files, Excel files, and databases.
  • IBM implements a Command Line Interface (CLI) and the OSLC (http://open-services.net/) test adapter API for integration into other test management systems.

Continuous integration and deployment tools help by providing updated codebases for testing and, more importantly, updated test environments. Implementing effective quality assurance and testing processes requires a comprehensive framework that starts with a clear understanding of what needs to be tested. Integrations into open source and bespoke pipelines are delivered through IBM’s commitment to open standards.
