AWS Fargate and ECS Integration for GRID Execution

I had integrated the Selenium and UFT developer grid with AWS ECS Fargate solution using Docker for achieving the parallel execution of around 500 test cases at one go.

This helps running the regression in a limited time frame, allowing teams to deploy often to production.

CI/CD Pipeline Integration with Test Automation

Developers tend to deploy a lot of times. So I set up a pipeline post-deployment to validate the sanity or smoke testing as soon as the deployment pipeline in Jenkins is completed. It will be triggering the QA smoke and sanity test cases.

This DevOps-integrated pipeline helps identify the bugs immediately caused by deployment.

Java-based Automation Framework
Built a Selenium-based automation framework in Java with BDD framework for one of my clients.

It had all the features required for web-based application automation.

This framework has integration with Jenkins and Grid for parallel and CI/CD integration.

Reports and Dashboards
Reporting the results in a presentable and clean format is very important for any automation framework. As part of multiple projects I'd worked on, I built a live dashboard using a reporting portal that displays all the live transactions and results.

Built HTML reports like Allure and ExtentReports into the test automation framework and Jenkins to easily understand the results.

Mobile Automation Framework with Device Farm
Developed a mobile automation framework that supports both IOS and Android versions and runs on real devices instead of emulators.

Real device execution is equal to live end-user usage, so it increases the probability of finding defects.
