Integration Automation Using Citrus Testing Framework with Christoph Deppisch

TestTalks Interview

Joe Colantonio talks to Christoph Deppisch about automate integration tests for pretty much any messaging protocol or data format. So if you’re looking to expand your automation efforts beyond lame, flaky, UI-based automated tests, this episode is for you.

BDD Integration with Citrus & Cucumber

Citrus “Tools in action” session @DevoxxBE 2017

The concept of behavior driven development (BDD) is quite simple. Business analysts and domain experts describe how the application should behave using Gherkin (given-when-then) feature stories. Developers glue those specifications to automated tests. Can we use this approach when testing the integration of services, too? The talk gives answers with a combination of the frameworks Cucumber and Citrus. After a short introduction to both frameworks we discuss the concepts and see some code examples that demonstrate how the behavior driven approach fits to testing the messaging integration with Http REST, JMS and mail communication. At the end we will have an automated integration test with BDD and almost no glue code to write manually.

Testing Microservices

Citrus “Tools in action” session @DevoxxBE 2015

Citrus integrates with frameworks like Apache Camel, Arquillian, Kubernetes and Docker in order to provide automated integration testing of Microservice applications. The tools in action session gives a brief introduction to the Citrus framework and shows code samples for a complete integration test scenario in a Microservices environment.
