SAP integrated and developed several testing frameworks to test UI5 applications, libraries, controls or modules: QUnit for functional testing, OPA5 to do integration testing and UIveri5 for end-to-end testing. In 2020, wdi5 (pronounced as /vdiai5/) has been started by Volker Buzek at j&s-soft with the focus to test UI5 web apps in hybrid scenarios – the scenarios which aren’t supported by UIveri5. Beginning of 2022, UIveri5 got deprecated mainly due to technical reasons and a successor was needed. SAP started sponsoring the wdi5 project of j&s-soft to establish it as UI5s open-source end-to-end testing framework. In this podcast, Christoph talks with Volker, Hristo and Peter about the testing options of UI5, the history and the now, how wdi5 should be handed over into the responsibility of the UI5 community, migration steps from UIveri5 to wdi5, technical insights into wdi5 and the open gaps and next steps.
Tune in and learn about the history, getting started, migration and the future direction of UI5 testing.
