In this paper, we focus on the importance of thoroughly testing software to ensure its quality. The paper explains how this can only be achieved in an effective and efficient way by automating the testing as part of a continuous delivery pipeline, and introduces a framework that can enable such automation.

We specifically focus on Galasa. Galasa is an open-source deep integration test framework for hybrid cloud applications that allows teams to automate tests to run as part of a dev-ops pipeline.

Galasa was built as an integration test framework, not only to test applications spanning multiple platforms as part of a hybrid multi-cloud but to integrate all the test tools that would be needed to test such an application, giving you a single test catalog, single endpoint to run tests and a single UI to look at the reports from those tests. These enterprise level features are key to unlocking the value of your automation and allowing you to deliver your dev-ops journey.
