We are looking at setting up MySQL as our backend database, but a question arose as to where Jubula will be installed. Can Jubula be installed on a server or does it only support installation on a PC? If it can be installed on a server can you tell me which types it supports and whether there are any issues regarding a server installation. Thanks!

Hi,

Just to clarify - are you talking about installing Jubula centrally and have people start the ITE (Integrated Test Environment) on their clients? If so, yes, that is possible.

If not, could you add some more details?

Regards,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Yes, I am talking about installing Jubula centrally, but we would like that central location to be on a server machine not a desktop (PC). For example, the server would be running Microsoft Windows 2008 Server or something similar.

Our thoughts were that our developers would create the tests locally on their PC and test them locally until they are working. Then once they are ready to be moved to development (QA or production) our promote system would move the tests from the working (local) database to the development (QA or production) database and the promote system would execute the tests by shelling out to our server where Jubula is installed.

Does Jubula support the installation on a server? If so, what operating systems does it support?

Thanks for your help.
Diane

Hi,

Yes the scenario you describe is possible. We also use two databases - one where the tests are "in development", and one that is used for the nightly tests. This lets us work on tests, and decide which versions of the project get put into the productive database, and how often. In terms of the execution, we have a slightly different setup - we have Jubula installed on various virtual machines to allow parallel testing on different platforms. For each parallel test, one Jubula installation is required (because the testexec can only run one test at a time). The systems we test on remain Windows Vista, XP, 7, Linux and Mac - so we don't perform any specific server systems testing. I don't think it should be a problem though.

HTH,
Alex

Hello,

We are doing something similar, we are running Jubula via testexec as a Microsoft TFS Build Target.
The MS Build Agent is Running on Windows 7 Hardware and HyperV Machines.

So on each build machine, we do execute also execute the Jubula Tests.
Until now this is working quite good for UI tests although the TFS Build Agent is running only as a service.
