automatic Operating System testing framework (webUI & scheduler)


openQA is a testing framework that allows you to run tests on pretty-much anything that you can get 'remote' control of (most often, anything you can run in a VM and point VNC at). This allows testing of things including GUI applications, system boot-up (BIOS, bootloaders, kernels), installers and whole operating systems.

Tests (using Perl syntax) generally consist mostly of sequences of code like:
  assert_and_click 'some_icon';
  assert_screen 'some_prompt';
  send_key 'ret';
which are run using the os-autoinst test engine, by a worker. The tags named in scripts can then be associated with 'needles' (elements of screenshots) via the webUI (either from past tests, or while controlling a live test). Other testing possibilities include: serial-connected headless systems, multi-host networked tests, and non-VM 'real' systems.

This package includes the job scheduler, the elements providing the services to allow workers to run tests and upload results, and the Web-based user interface.
