STAMP article in Linux Magazine

Linux Magazine June 2019

Publication: Linux Magazine
Title: Test amplification for DevOps
Date: June 2019
Author: Caroline Landry (INRIA)

Descartes, DSpot, CAMP and Botsing, the four main STAMP testing tools are described in the June 2019 issue of the French printed publication Linux Magazine. The article explains testing amplification as a new technique to automatically analyze and transform the tests produced by the development teams to increase confidence with each commit. The approach  starts with the code produced by the developers: unit tests case, APIs, configuration files. Then, the amplification automatically analyzes and transforms this code to generate variants which will make it possible to test more intensely.

Title: Automated tests to support DevOps teams
Date: March 2019
Authors: Olivier Bouzereau with the STAMP project team

A three pages article about STAMP tools and methodologies has been published in the March 2019 issue of the French printed publication Programmez!  The article explains the growing importance of automated tests, now required for continuous development and continuous integration. New testing tools are improving their speed to deploy more frequent releases of services with less bugs. Amplifying tests in a DevOps approach, the STAMP open source toolset (including DSpot, Descartes, CAMP and Botsing) improves Java test suite and reduce deployed application crashes. Mutation testing examples and use cases are provided in this article.

STAMP Workshop at French Tech Central Station F

Improve your software quality with STAMP open source tools. Join Station F workshop in Paris next February 27, 2019.

Paris, February 13, 2019 - OW2, the global community for open source infrastructure software and its founding member Inria, the French national research institute for the digital sciences, are inviting entrepreneurs, developers and DevOps teams to a software quality Tech Talk. This talk will be provided by Caroline Landry, Inria Research Engineer on Wednesday 27 February from 2:15PM at French Tech Central Station F, 55 boulevard Vincent Auriol, 75013 Paris. It will be followed by a Networking Coffee and a workshop dedicated on STAMP automation tools, the direct outcome of an ongoing project supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. 

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. Using DSpot, STAMP users can detect and generate automatically missing assertions for Junit test cases. Adding Descartes, a Pitest plugin, to their own Java code, they get more actionable and faster mutation analysis results. CAMP brings configuration amplification based on Docker while Botsing offers a Java framework for crash reproduction.

Free registration is required to attend to the Station F talk and workshop: https://www.stamp-project.eu/view/Blog/StationF_STAMP_presentation  

Programme :

2h30-3h10: Part 1, Caroline Landry, Research Engineer at Inria Rennes, details STAMP tools and their business benefits, with the ActiveEon use case.
3h10-3h30: Networking coffee – Join the STAMP project experts to discuss about your own testing practices and problems
3h30-4h30: Part 2, STAMP Workshop focused on your Java project unit tests, and configuration tests for your Docker project. Take this opportunity to talk with Benjamin Danglot (Inria) and more STAMP tools designers from TUDelft and Sintef.

The OW2 Community Announces the Launch of STAMP Project Beta-Testing Campaign

Using innovative STAMP open source tools, Java developers and DevOps teams can now produce quality releases faster and more frequently.

Paris, November 15, 2018 - OW2, the global community for open source infrastructure software, announces the launch of STAMP beta-testing campaign. Java developers and DevOps teams are invited to download and try DSpot and Descartes, both outcomes of the STAMP project supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The STAMP beta-testing campaign is starting online at: l.ow2.org/stpbeta  

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. 

STAMP users obtain a modern testing toolset to leverage their Java testing assets. They can produce software releases more frequently, more rapidly, with higher quality.

Using DSpot, STAMP early users can detect and generate automatically missing assertions for Junit test cases, also known as test amplification. Adding Descartes, a Pitest plugin, to their own java code, they get more actionable and faster mutation analysis results. 

Beta-testers are requested to fill in a short questionnaire by 25 March 2019 to provide their feedback and help fine-tune the toolset. They will also be distinguished as STAMP contributors and enter the community. Moreover, the first campaign participants will receive a customized “STAMP test pilot” gift.
A dedicated mailing list has been set up to allow Beta-testers to exchange and share their experiences.

STAMP - DevOps : Bringing Automated Test Generation

https://www.inria.fr/extension/site_inria/design/site_inria/images/logos/logo_INRIA_50_EN.svg
Source: INRIA Website

Date: December 2016

A powerful software development methodology, DevOps has become a very popular tool in the US for it greatly helps web giants to deliver more frequent updates. True enough, Europe hasn't catch up yet. Coordinated by Inria, STAMP is a consortium whose aim is to provide a critical missing piece to this methodology. To wit: an automated test generation tool that would make DevOps less risky and incidentally more palatable to European companies. This projet has just been selected as part of the EU H2020 call for proposals ICT-10-2016 ‘Software Technologies’.
