Agenda - 2:30pm Start

  1. Accepting minutes from last meeting

  2. Current issue with new methods in 2013-06 model breaking imports - how do we move forward on this?

    • Not-implemented stubs in OMERO model are now called and throwing
    • Should stubs be not-implemented? No - should be implemented
    • Model now provides location for data - ready to be implemented
    • Roger will have a look - only OMEROMetadataStore needs to change
    • Ticket exists - currently Mark Carroll.
  3. Summer progress updates

    • CI/Partner Projects (Sebastien)

      • Ian & Simon - Simon handling wnd-charm
      • Nodes needed for deploying builds - install projects (webapp / client etc) - run tests
      • Production testing - not currently handled by our CI. Need partners
      • Seb running OMERO 4 & 5 on same node
      • Which versions of E.g. searcher & OMERO do we test? What combinations?
      • Needs jobs to install all dependencies etc.
      • Test data - hosting?
      • Jason: can’t handle all versions - needs to be readily available via github etc. Keep it simple. Stick with what we know. Use stable releases - 4.4.8
      • Seb: sometimes need latest server
      • Ian: mostly using latest stable release, but then can miss bugs until after release
      • Seb: synchronise OMERO and projects releases - test together
      • Curtis: can’t couple everything. E.g. OMERO & ImageJ - Need rapid releases to address bug-fixes Need binary that we know works with particular project - patch release / internal release?
      • Seb: OMERO users don’t want to upgrade very frequently - Curtis: keep internal / tag
    • OMERO.server (Blazej)

      • Scoping doc mostly finalised
    • VM is running (thanks Kenny) MozTrap

      • Petr: Manage test runs - pick environment E.g. Firefox - Assign to test runs
      • Assessing this tool for managing the manual testing scenarios
      • Hope to overcome some of the limitations of using gdocs
      • Tester can browse tests by Product, version etc. Choose test...
      • Allows more granular definition of steps
      • Can record which steps of the scenario have failed, link to tickets etc.
      • Some issues to work out - attaching of screenshots, fail on a single step only (no other comments)
      • Tests could be longer (long page of steps)
      • Can stop and restart tests part way through
      • Blazej & Petr - create test scenarios to try, real OME scenario(s)
    • OMERO.web (Will)

      • Carlos’ favourite: Selenium (automated GUI testing framework)
      • Will tried Selenium 1.x tests with 2.x with no success #11234
      • Try to update / port existing tests or start new tests from scratch?
      • Carlos: Straightforward to run v1 scenarios with prep work (wrapper)
      • Carlos: Little reason to maintain backwards compatibility on tests
      • Carlos: Very little reason to not to start from scratch
      • Carlos: Saucelabs - accepts selenium tests and runs on their infrastructure
      • Carlos: Can keep basic structure -> translation can be done
      • Carlos: IDEs to record sequences (which can be tweaked) to turn into tests, to apply to e.g. all browsers.
    • OMERO.insight (Mark on leave)

    • Docs & website (Helen)
