Java Automated Testing

Lets start with making sure java is available on your system

For Windows
For Linux
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre
For Mac

Java should already be present on Mac OS X by default

Getting Started

With TestingBot you can easily run your automated tests with any Java test framework, here's a simple example without any assertations:

Download the java bindings from  http://www.seleniumhq.org/download/ (selenium-java-*.zip) and include in your project library.
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Platform;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;

import java.net.URL;

public class JavaSample {

  public static final String KEY = "KEY";
  public static final String SECRET = "SECRET";
  public static final String URL = "http://" + KEY + ":" + SECRET + "@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub";

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

	DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
	caps.setCapability("browserName", "IE");
	caps.setCapability("version", "11");
	caps.setCapability("platform", "WIN10");
	caps.setCapability("name", "My First Test");

	WebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(new URL(URL), caps);
	driver.get("http://www.google.com/ncr");
	WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.name("q"));

	element.sendKeys("TestingBot");
	element.submit();

	System.out.println(driver.getTitle());
	driver.quit();
  }
}

This test will start an IE browser on Windows in our cloud, go to Google, and search for TestingBot. It will then output the title.

This test does not make any assertations or verifications, but it's a quick intro in how to run a Java test on TestingBot.


Logo head

Make sure to always stop your test (driver.quit()), otherwise it will continue running, leading to a timeout.

Configuring capabilities

To let TestingBot know on which browser/platform you want to run your test on, you need to specify the browsername, version, OS and other optional options in the capabilities field.


Before
FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

After
WebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(
	new URL("http://key:secret@hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub"),
	DesiredCapabilities.firefox()
);

To see how to do this, please select a combination of browser, version and platform in the drop-down menus below:


1. Select a Platform
2. Select a Browser


Testing Internal/Staged Websites

We've built TestingBot Tunnel, to provide you with a secure way to run tests against your staged/internal webapps.
Please see our TestingBot Tunnel documentation for more information about this easy to use tunneling solution.


The example below shows how to easily run a Java WebDriver test with our Tunnel:


1. Download our tunnel and start the tunnel:

java -jar testingbot-tunnel.jar key secret

2. Adjust your test: instead of pointing to 'hub.testingbot.com/wd/hub' like the example above - change it to point to your tunnel's IP address.
Assuming you run the tunnel on the same machine you run your tests, change to 'localhost:4445/wd/hub'. localhost is the machine running the tunnel, 4445 is the default port of the tunnel.


This way your test will go securily through the tunnel to TestingBot and back:


import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Platform;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;

import java.net.URL;

public class JavaSample {

  public static final String KEY = "KEY";
  public static final String SECRET = "SECRET";
  public static final String URL = "http://" + KEY + ":" + SECRET + "@localhost:4445/wd/hub";

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

	DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
	caps.setCapability("browserName", "IE");
	caps.setCapability("version", "11");
	caps.setCapability("platform", "WIN10");
	caps.setCapability("name", "My First Test");

	WebDriver driver = new RemoteWebDriver(new URL(URL), caps);
	driver.get("http://www.google.com/ncr");
	WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.name("q"));

	element.sendKeys("TestingBot");
	element.submit();

	System.out.println(driver.getTitle());
	driver.quit();
  }
}

Other Options

We offer many other test options, for example: disable video recording, specifying a custom Firefox Profile, loading Chrome/Firefox/Safari extensions, running an executable before your test starts, uploading files, ...
See our list of test options for a full list of options to customize your tests.

Parallel Testing

Parallel Testing means running the same test, or multiple tests, simultaneously. This greatly reduces your total testing time.

You can run the same tests on all different browser configurations or run different tests all on the same browser configuration.
TestingBot has a large grid of machines and browsers, which means you can use our service to do efficient parallel testing. It is one of the key features we provide to greatly cut down on your total testing time.

Please see our Parallel JUnit documentation for parallel testing.


Queueing

Every plan we provide comes with a limit of concurrent VMs (how many tests you can run in parallel).
For example: if you have a plan with 5 concurrent VMs, it is possible to start more tests. TestingBot will queue the additional tests and run the tests as soon as slots become available.

Send test details back to TestingBot

To see if a test passed or not in our member area, or to send additional meta-data to TestingBot, you need to use our API.

TestingBot has an open-sourced Java client for using the TestingBot API.

Once included with your tests, you can send back test status and other meta-data to TestingBot:


import com.testingbot.testingbotrest.TestingbotREST;

@After
public void tearDown() throws Exception {
	TestingbotREST r = new TestingbotREST("key", "secret");
	Map data = new HashMap();
	data.put("success", "1");
	data.put("name", "My Test");
	r.updateTest(driver.getSessionId(), data);
	driver.quit();
}
