STAMP Workshop: The State-of-the-art in Java Automation Testing

inria.jpgThis STAMP workshop welcomes software testing professionals for a dedicated session on software testing automation. European testing experts and researchers from STAMP consortium will present the innovative STAMP toolset for Java applications.

STAMP stands for "Software Testing AMPlification". The STAMP tools act along the Continuous Integration and Continuous Distribution pipeline (CI/CD), reducing errors and eliminating failures in Java applications while they are being designed, configured, and sent to production.

Telecom Valley, 6 December 2018, Sophia-Antipolis

Date: 6 December 2018, 12:00-14:00
Place: Business Pôle - Pépinière d'entreprises, 1047 Route des Dolines, Allée Pierre Ziller, 06560 Valbonne, France

Telecom Valley, the French riviera digital ecosystem association, receives two participants of the STAMP project. They are presenting STAMP main software outcomes and the beta-testing campaign, in the context of a Software Test & Quality community meeting. 

Title: Amplify Your Testing Efforts Automatically With STAMP Open Source Tools

How to effectively support DevOps teams throughout the continuous integration and continuous deployment lifecycle? The OW2 open source community is involved in the Horizon 2020 STAMP project as a use case provider. Also, OW2's Management-Office team supports the R&D project collaboration and leads dissemination and exploitation activities with nine more academic and industrial partners. STAMP technical outcomes targets Java applications and associated popular test tools (JUnit, log4j, Selenium), Gradle and Maven for deliverability automation, Swagger for REST API description, Nomad and Docker to describe deployments. Four main software tests have been developed so far (DSpot, Descartes, CAMP and Botsing), now proposed in a beta testing campaign. Beyond ActiveEon, OW2, XWiki use cases and project experiments, more external DevOps feedbacks will contribute to improve the STAMP toolset and to explore exploitation scenarios in 2019 and beyond.
