Insider’s View of a Real-World Project: Innovative Strategies & Solutions for Performance Testing Composite Applications

Composite applications have become one of the most complicated―and unavoidable―project types that testers face. With these applications needing to interface successfully with myriad third-party components and services―sometimes simultaneously―performance testing them adequately and in a sufficient number of scenarios can be a challenge.

In this presentation, Terri Chu, Principal Consultant for Orasi Software, Inc.’s Performance Testing Services, will discuss a complex composite application testing project where she was actually a member of the testing team. Her on-the-ground experience in this effort, which spanned several years in all its phases, provides valuable insight that attendees can apply to their own testing projects.

Session Takeaways:

  • Process of performance testing a complex, composite application with multiple input points to the system, and the innovative solutions and approaches that the team devised and introduced.
  • Challenges of actively testing 15 different applications simultaneously and how the team resolved them.
  • Benefits and difficulties of performing “day in the life” testing with large teams (in this case, up to 35 testers on the team at once).
  • Lessons learned from the effort―and from working in a continuous delivery (one build per week) environment over a long period of time.
