Introduction to Lightning Test Services with Jasmine

Complete Source code and video of using Lightning Datatable Component and Jasmine in Salesforce

In previous post, we discussed what is Jasmine and simple hello world program to see how it works. In this blog post, we will discuss how Jasmine can be used in Salesforce to test Lightning Component’s Javascript code.

Note : Everything we are discussing here is completely covered as part of Live coding in Apex Salesforce Saturday organized by Amit. Would like to thank Mohith for his support and answers during the demo. It also shows How SalesforceDX can be used daily by developers to perform development.

Jasmine and Mocha support is provided as a part of Lightning Test Service (LTS) by Salesforce. Jasmine and Mocha, both are well known and industry wide solution accepted in Javascript world. of course, Salesforce don’t want to stay behind in terms of its offering to developers thats why we have new baby in town – Lightning Test Service (LTS).

Getting Started with Jasmine Test Framework

Introduction to Jasmine framework and getting started with Behavior Driven Development (BDD) testing, along with Complete Source code and Video

Jasmine is a Javascript Testing framework which starts with behavioral specifications as a basis for writing test cases. To put it another way, you can consider user stories as a reference for write test cases. Each user story in your project can have one or more Jasmine test cases.

Majorly, Jasmine is made up of three functions

  1. describe
  2. it
  3. assertions (expect)

Like standard frameworks, it also has setup method and tear down methods

  • beforeEach() – Setup Method
  • afterEach() – Teardown Method

For the sake of simplicity of post, I would not discuss much in detail. However, you can navigate to official Jasmine guide for deep dive. Continue reading “Getting Started with Jasmine Test Framework”

Using soapUI with Salesforce to test standard and custom web services response

soapUI is most common tool available to test Soap based web services, it also has capability to test REST web services. soapUI can be used to test Partner WSDL, enterprise WSDL, Tooling API, Metadata API to study capability and response from Salesforce before writing any code in Java, C# or any other language. In this article we will see, how we can leverage this tool to test enterprise WSDL from Salesforce.

You can download latest version of soapUI from here.

Selenium and Salesforce – Salesforce automation testing – Video tutorial – Part 1

This is first post of multi-series article on using Selenium with Salesforce for Automation testing. Testing has always been integral part of any software development life cycle and Salesforce has already taken it to next level by making mandatory to have 75% of code coverage before any code deployment. These apex test classes, however has its limitations where we can only test Apex code written. I have seen most of Salesforce project ending with manual testing. Audience for this series is not only developer but Salesforce admin and of course manual testers as well and please feel free to drop comment throughout this series if I left any area or topic uncleared.

What is Selenium 

Selenium is a portable software testing framework for web applications. Selenium provides a record/playback tool for authoring tests without learning a test scripting language (Selenium IDE). It also provides a test domain-specific language (Selenese)[1] to write tests in a number of popular programming languages, including Java, C#, Groovy, Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby. The tests can then be run against most modern web browsers like firefox, Chrome, Internet explorer. Selenium deploys on Windows, Linux and Macintosh platforms.
