Submitted by Ravindra Singh (@ravindrasingh) on Thursday, 30 July 2015
To explore CasperJS as a framework for automation testing for the web applications.
Most of the times, all you want is an automated way to ensure that your application is functioning properly at a high level. But do you really need to write mountains of Unit tests to achieve this? Moreover, can unit tests even achieve this at all? And when it comes to front-end behavior, how do you write effective tests?
In this session, we will demonstrate:
-PhantomJS and CasperJS Introduction
-Features of CasperJS
-Playing with Casper API
-Headless demo with real world example
-How to test-
–Impersonating user agents
–Making AJAX requests
-How to minimize regressing testing with CasperJS
