User Impersonation as a Service in End-to-End Testing

Boni García, Francisco Gortázar, Micael Gallego, Eduardo Jiménez

Abstract

Testing large distributed heterogenous systems in cloud environments is a complex task. This situation becomes especially difficult when carrying out end-to-end tests, in which the whole system is exercised, typically through its graphical user interface (GUI) with impersonated users. These tests are typically expensive to write and time consuming to run. This paper contributes to the solution of this problem by proposing an open source framework called ElasTest, which can be seen as an elastic platform to carry out end-to-end testing for different types of applications, including web and mobile. In particular, this piece or research puts the accent on the capability to impersonate final users, presenting a real case study in which end-to-end tests have been carried out to assess the correctness of real-time communications among browsers using WebRTC.
