Last month we asked our developer community to share with us which test frameworks they are using today--with some interesting results. It was a bit of a horse race with Selenium beating out the "Other" category by a Nose.
The results were a mixed bag as the test automation community has a lot of frameworks and testing approaches from which to choose. The "Other" category filled up with lots of interesting responses, including the following: "Burp, Fiddler, Paros, Webscarab". Those in the world of Web Application Security might have heard about Burp, Paros, WebScarab and other proxy tools, which are used to intercept the web (HTTP/HTTPS) requests...but it read like a mini-poem on first glance; a few more syllables and it could have been a haiku:
Burp, Fiddler! Paros, Web Scarab!
Thank you to all of those of you who participated in the survey and please feel free to send further almost-haikus and feedback to us! Oh, and congrats to Steff J, who won an ActiveState t-shirt for taking the time to reply to the survey! Steff, we'll be in touch for sizing and shipping info.
Want an opportunity to pick up a coveted ActiveState t-shirt, too? All you need to do is answer this short survey on deploying to the Cloud. Don't worry if you haven't moved to the Cloud; we'd still love to hear your future plans, hopes and fears related to the Cloud: surveymonkey.com/july2010as.
A winner will be drawn in early August and announced in the newsletter and on the blog.
