Lately, we’ve been hearing and reading more and more about test-driven development. This domain, however, comes with a series of expressions and specific jargon that can be confusing to newcomers. This article will walk you through the most common definitions, test types and test parts.

At ZeroTurnaround, we need this for testing LiveRebel with larger deployments. LiveRebel is a tool to manage JEE production and QA deployments and online updates. It is crucial that we support large clusters of machines. Testing such environments is not an easy task but luckily in 2012 it is not about buying 800 machines but only provisioning them in the cloud for some limited time. In this article I will walk you through setting up a dynamic Tomcat cluster and running some simple tests on them. (Quick note: When I started writing this article, we had only tested this out with 100 Tomcat machines, but since then we grew to be able to support 800 instances with LiveRebel and the other tools).
We believe Knight accidentally released the test software they used to verify that their market making software functioned properly, into NYSE’s live system.
In the safety of Knight’s test laboratory, this test software (we’ll call it, the Tester) sends patterns of buy and sell orders to its new Retail Liquidity Provider (RLP) Market Making software, and the resulting mock executions are recorded. This is how they could ensure their new market making software worked properly before deploying to the NYSE live system.
sqlmap is an open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. It comes with a powerful detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester and a broad range of switches lasting from database fingerprinting, over data fetching from the database, to accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.
A Zucchini feature file consists of sections bound to contexts of different application screens. Every screen you proceed to needs to be backed up by a CoffeeScript class describing all UI elements you want Zucchini to interact with as well as custom actions you feel like performing on that screen.

The Two Things about Software Engineering:
1) Nothing about the code (size, speed, elegance, conformance to standards, etc.) is important if it doesn’t actually work.
2) Whatever you don’t have automated tests for probably doesn’t work (and if it happens to work now, it will inevitably stop working at some point in the future without your noticing).
