Ubuntu Pro, Canonical’s comprehensive subscription for secure open source and compliance, is now generally available.
BlazeMeter released new technology which enables users to execute Selenium scripts as load tests.
Selenium users can run thousands of different nodes in the cloud for large scale load tests across multiple geographical locations.
This functionality is made possible by using BlazeMeter in conjunction with its new open source performance testing automation framework, Taurus. Taurus automates the execution of native Selenium tests locally and seamlessly switches into the BlazeMeter cloud to run the tests at a massive scale. All tests can be added as a step in the Jenkins pipeline, enabling Selenium users to include performance testing in the Continuous Integration cycle while also enjoying key features like enhanced reporting and collaboration.
“We’re extremely excited about this new technology, which enables users to easily run cloud-based load tests with Selenium for the first time. It significantly simplifies and expedites the process, without requiring any modifications to existing Selenium scripts,” said Alon Girmonsky, CEO and Founder of BlazeMeter. “This is just the first step on our product roadmap for the Selenium user community.”
BlazeMeter has also released an additional new feature for the JMeter community - the Selenium Converter. The converter transforms all Selenium scripts into JMeter in less than ten minutes, eliminating the JMeter scripting step and dramatically reducing costs and test creation time from hours or days down to just minutes. It fully automates the process, once more facilitating the implementation of testing into the Jenkins CI pipeline. Watch this video on how to use the Selenium Converter.
