Full-Stack Test Automation with Karate


Duration: 25 mins

Creator of @KarateDSL

Karate started out as an open-source tool for testing web-services - and has evolved to become the only open-source tool to combine API test-automation, mocks and performance-testing into a single, unified framework.

Just over 2 years old, Karate's success is evident in how regularly it turns up in blog-posts, social-media mentions, job-listings and even in tech-conferences world-wide. And in 2019, it debuted in the reputed ThoughtWorks Tech Radar - which has led to even more adoption.

The performance-testing capability is relatively recent and not many people know that it can integrate seamlessly into even non-HTTP flows because of how easy it is to hook into Java code from Karate. If you are part of a platform team that needs to do performance-testing of any kind, not just web-services, but things such as gRPC or big-data ingestion then this session is for you.

The Karate project has recently achieved an audacious goal - which is to expand into user-interface testing, and compete with the usual suspects in the wide-world of test-automation tools - both open-source and commercial. You will get a sense of Karate's capabilities and how it compares with the competition in this session.
