This April was full of new insights and work. BBST Bug Advocacy course wasn’t that tough as BBST Foundations, but it was still very insightful!
The most enjoyable part of the course was my work with fellow students, it was challenging due to our different time zones. The second inspiring thing was our work on unconfirmed issues in OpenOffice bug tracker. That was a good challenge, it was hard to find an issue to work with, because few of them had a chance to be reproducible.
With trembling heart I’m waiting for the results and I hope I’ve passed the final exam. 🙂
This is a new interesting post from Michael Bolton on his blog at developsense.com!
Over the last year James Bach and I have been refining our ideas about the relationships between testing and tools in Rapid Software Testing. The result is this paper. It’s not a short piece, because it’s not a light subject.
This is an interesting subject, definitely worth reading. Thanks Michael!
I was thinking about a good New Year gift for myself, and that’s an idea a came to – learn something new is the best gift one can get! So, I’ve just signed up myself for Bug Advocacy course from AST. Happy New Year to every one!
Currently, I’m learning test automation. The tools I’m using are: Java Development Kit(JDK), Apache Maven, IntelliJ IDE and JUnit. I have easly installed them for MS Windows but installation for Ubuntu linux was a little challenging for me, that’s why I decided to write this article. I really hope the article will be helpful for those, who wants to use those tools in Ubuntu linux. At least you can find all you need here, one source makes it easier 🙂 The article is good for Ubuntu 14.04.3 and actually, it should be good for 15.10 with a little difference in JDK installation. (JDK 8 is available from Ubuntu Software Center in Ubuntu 15.10). Let’s start!
Java SDK installation.
First of all we need to install Java Development Kit. I was thinking to use Ubuntu software center for this installation, but OpenJDK Java 7 Runtime is the latest version available there. According to Oracle current version is Java SE Development Kit 8u66, I actually like to use latest versions, and I’m going to use that one for installation here. For this installation we need to add PPA repository from webupd8team and install JDK from there. So, let’s open our Terminal and run these commands:
We should check which version of Java we have installed now. Run this command:
$ javac -version
That command returned the following message:
Which is a good sign though 🙂 I expected something like that 🙂 We’ve got our Java Development Kit installed!
As I mentioned in the beginning, in Ubuntu 15.10 this installation can be done from Ubuntu Software Center which is easier. The next our step is going to be:
Today is a great day in my life! I decided for myself and joined the Association for Software Testing!
I’m truly excited and proud to be a member of the AST 🙂 I hope to meet many interesting people and learn more about software testing! Here I go!
