A Software Testing Service Supporting Long-Lived and Asynchronous Testing Jobs

Shueh-Cheng Hu and I-Ching Chen
Abstract—Testing as a service (TaaS) provides features like easiness of use, high availability, low installation and maintenance cost, thus can aid programmers and white-box testers in improving software quality. Automatic test data generation being embedded in a TaaS must consume significant amount of time and computer resources while dealing with mid- or large-scale programs. However, allowing large volume of long-lived test sessions in a TaaS will incur adverse impact on the scalability of the TaaS and its hosting servers. To enable a TaaS supports time-consuming testing jobs and keeps its scalability simultaneously; a message queuing system could be adopted for holding un-processed test jobs temporarily. This article describes the corresponding design rationale, implementation details of a testing as a service with message queuing system and discusses its advantages.

Index Terms—Java path finder, message queuing system, software quality assurance, testing as a service.
