Technical Resources

Here are some useful technical resources for you:
  • Take a few minutes to watch some of our Annotated/Animated Movies. You'll find seven that show how eValid works from the GUI level, and three that deal with specific testing situations.
  • If you run into a tricky problem testing a website, you might consider checking out the 40+ entries in our Worked Solutions Resource. You'll find a wide range of already-worked examples showing how eValid solves typical testing situations.
  • For general eValid usage you may wish to check into the set of our "top 99" Power User Tips & Tricks. They cover everything from simple functional testing to detailed LoadTest experiment development.

eValid Operation with GWT "Kitchen Sink" Confirmed

The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a popular method for creating strong user-interactive AJAX applications with embedded JavaScript that is actually created from Java sources. The end-user tests of these AJAX applications has to be "in the browser" and this is where eValid comes into play.
As an illustration of how well eValid handles GWT operation, here is our complete Testing AJAX Applications -- GWT Kitchen Sink Example. The writeup includes the complete eValid scripts for three different example applications.

Remote Measurement with eValid

Here's a summary of a Remote Measurement & Reporting project that we did for a customer. The goal was to measure response time of a web server in delivering a lengthy page. The question asked was, "how long does it take for the whole page to show up, AFTER the initial part of the page appears?" The eValid test used a series of SyncOnText commands to establish the timing points, then ElapsedTime commands to get the data.


This project summary is one of a series of eValid Success Stories. Let us know if you need to do something we've already done!

Monitoring Success Story

Here is an example of how one of our customers is using eValid to perform hundreds of monitoring tests per hour -- over 1,000,000 tests per year. In this application, tests are applied to a Transportation System Portal at intervals between 10 minutes and 60 minutes. Results from each playback are parsed and delivered to a central monitoring and reporting system. Experience over time suggests that problem detections (availability, slow response, etc.) are in the 1%-2% of tests run -- a result due to the very close tolerances required of the monitored website.
