Tuesday from 17:25 til 17:55

Are your web tests hard to read and hard to maintain? Does their reporting leave something to be desired? Do you have trouble scaling your test suite? Indeed, these are common issues faced by teams working with automated web tests.

The Screenplay pattern (https://dzone.com/articles/page-objects-refactored-solid-steps-to-the-screenp) presents an innovative answer to these problems, built around readability, reusability and solid design principles. More than just a simple design pattern, the Screenplay pattern represents the next step in writing articulate, declarative tests using a highly expressive DSL.

In this talk we will demonstrate Serenity-JS, a TypeScript implementation of Serenity BDD that lets you test your Angular-JS apps using the Screenplay pattern, and also benefit from the powerful reporting features provided by Serenity BDD. Combining the advantages of Protractor, the expressive Screenplay DSL in TypeScript, and the powerful reporting features of Serenity BDD, Serenity-JS is set to become the tool of choice for your Angular-JS automated testing!
