F14-11/4: Continuous Architecture Validation

Track/s: Automation

Continuous Integration allows us to not only verify functionality of our code – it also allows us to validate architectural rules such as, “Do not call the same SQL statement twice”, “Do not transfer more than 50k per Web Service call”, or “Do not flood the log with unnecessary log output”. In this talk we discuss how you can leverage your existing test automation (Unit, Functional, Integration and Performance Tests) to also validate these architectural rules in your C/I. Validating these rules and letting violations of these rules fail your builds allow you to prevent typical architectural and
performance problems to make it into test and production

Session Takeaways:

  • How to identify “architectural regressions” on a build-to-build basis
  • Key Metrics to capture with your Unit Test Execution such as # of SQL Statements, # of Exceptions, # of Log Entries, etc.
  • Why and How to capture the same metrics in Production to extend Continuous Delivery with the best practices from Continuous Integration
