Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more
Adopt We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.
While unit and acceptance testing are widely embraced as standard development practices, this trend has not continued into the realm of performance testing. Currently, the common tooling drives testers towards creating throw away code and a click-and-script mentality. Treating performance testing as a first-class citizen enables the creation of better tests that cover more functionality, leading to better tooling to create and run performance tests, resulting in a test suite that is maintainable and can itself be tested.
Trial Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
