    Re: How to Test on UNIX / Linux ??

    Hello Raj,

    First thing first : learning to test applications.
    Second : how to tst on Unix / Linux. There are some tools for testing on Unix (X-Runner comes to mind), I don't know about tools on Linux.
    Third : Perl ... I suggest you go back to the first point and decide how you could best use perl (or any other tool/language) in your own context.

    For 1/ there are some good books (from Beizer, Kaner, etc) as well as browsing the different forums and web sites on software testing.
    For 2/ Unix can be used either thru gui windows or thru the command line interface (and VT220 terminals). Which is it you wish to check either, both ?
    For 3/ what do you want to use perl for ? You should determine what you want to do and then find tools, methods or ways to do it. Not the other way around.

    Regards
    BH

    Hi Raj,

    If you are testing your web applications, you can use AdventNet QEngine.

    Re: How to Test on UNIX / Linux ??

    Software can be tested at different levels. If a public API is available, then test can be written to that API, with calls being made using something like Perl e.g.:

    my $data = LoadDataset("/home/myuser/mydataset");
    ProcessDataset($data);
    PrintResults($data);

    This would not be a true GUI test, however it can still prove useful and will generally not be as prone to 'rusting' as true GUI tests.

    Kalyan,

    it depends on what you will test:
    </font><ul type="square">[*]<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">CLI applications: use any scripting language you like (bash, perl, php, ...). All unix cli tools will be available to generate input and analyse output.</font>[*]<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">GUI/X applications: there is a perl package named X11::GUITest (http://sourceforge.net/projects/x11guitest/)</font>[/list]<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">
    Have a look at http://www.opensourcetesting.org/
