We’ve had some functional testing done that was using manual scripts that a tester needed to follow.
That proved useful for getting DHIS2 certified, but it is pretty hard to manage regressions and that too across different browsers.
Being able to automate using WebDriver (Selenium2) seems like a useful step forward.
SauceLabs is providing their cloud-hosted, testing platform available to open-source projects for free of cost.
They have a wide variety of browsers and platforms supported and helps us avoid regressions and allows upto-date functional testing.
We should hope to migrate those manual scripts to automated using this.
I think it will be a very useful exercise in the long term for functional testing of DHIS2.
