Testday for Testscripting your Add-on with MozMill

Mozmill, which is a framework for running functional tests, can be used for any application which is built on top of the Mozilla platform. This includes Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and many others. But it’s not only possible to test the application itself. Instead it can also be used to run any type of functional tests for installed add-ons.

To stimulate add-on authors to create their own Mozmill tests, Mozilla QA is holding a testday on Friday, March 5th, which is fully devoted to Mozmill testscripting for your add-on. Learn how Mozmill tests will be written and how they can be run in Firefox. The Mozmill team will be around the whole day to assist you wherever possible.

If you are interested in the testday, you should read through the following documentation about the creation of testscripts for extensions.

You can also attend, when you have general questions about Mozmill or when you want to help in creating Mozmill tests for Firefox. Get ready and join us in #testday next Friday.

Mozmill talk at FOSDEM 2010

Over the next weekend the next FOSDEM will take place once more in Brussels (Belgium). It’s a two day event completely devoted to the free and open source software.

Mozilla has its own developer room again and offers a couple of interesting talks during both days. For the first time I will not only be a participant but also have my own talk. That means that everyone who is interested to hear about the basics of Mozmill and the current state of Mozmill testing is welcome to join my Mozmill talk on Sunday, Feb. 7th, at 10am. There will be a lot of live demonstrations about various areas QA is working on.
