testing strategy

One test to @Rule them all

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

One abstraction layer, forty implementations and one test? Have you
ever build a pluggable API which allows others to extend your product?
We did this with the Mylyn Tasks framework and while the framework
provides common UI for accessing tasks, anyone can plug in specific
connectors to access their change management system of choice.
Connector authors are responsible for fulfilling the expectations of
the Mylyn API which isn't always documented in every little detail and
test their implementation for a number of edge cases. We'll show you
how we simplified testing of connectors and improved test coverage
significantly by introducing an integration test infrastructure on the
API level that tests all implementations with an elaborate test suite
for common behavior and also covers exceptional circumstances.
