Using Docker + Jenkins for Continuous Integration: Assorted Links

So much to do! So little time! There are so many pieces I need to add to my new little automated test framework, Test_TheInternet_2.0 found at https://github.com/tjmaher/Test_TheInternet_2.0. You can see what is on my "wish list" at the end of this blog post.

But what I really want to do is experiment with setting up my own Jenkins environment on my home system, something DevOps does at my workplace. I create, at work, Jenkins jobs to run tests, but it is not the same thing as being able to tinker with Jenkins Plugins, set up the system, etc.

I found out the other day that on Docker Hub, Jenkins has its own Docker imagehttps://hub.docker.com/_/jenkins/! That is definitely something I really want to tinker with.

Instead, here are some links that I was planning on checking out that I wanted to share with you. I probably won't be able to get to this for another few months or so, at the rate I am going:

The plan is to finish off the automated test framework we started: Test_TheInternet_2.0. You can see the source code at https://github.com/tjmaher/Test_TheInternet_2.0
  • RemoteWebDriver: Taking our DesiredCapabilities we touched upon, and expand it. 
  • Docker Composehttps://docs.docker.com/compose/: Bundle together scaling up or down Selenium Grid browser nodes, downloading Selenium Grid, starting up a Hub, and starting up various nodes.
  • MicrosoftWebDriver: ( Link ): How to incorporate Microsoft Edge into your tests.
  • Microsoft Virtual Imageshttps://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ add IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11 on Windows 7 or IE 11 and Microsoft Edge to Windows 10 nodes to your Selenium Hub! Just use VirtualBox, Vagrant, HyperV (Windows), VMWare, or Parallels (Mac). Take a snapshot of the images because the originals are only good for 90 days. (What, no Docker solution? Gee, Microsoft, do you always have to be different?)
  • Selenium Grid Extrashttps://github.com/groupon/Selenium-Grid-Extras
... I also want to check out what Sauce Labs has for its own sample test framework in Java-Junit-Selenium: https://github.com/saucelabs-sample-test-frameworks/Java-Junit-Selenium

As always, Happy Testing!
