In the SSP we have been putting together a small suite of performance tests to use as before/after checks in the SITS upgrade. In the SSP we have a mixture of IS and non-IS staff, so it was important to come up with a procedure which was:
- Easily maintainable
- Accessible to team members who don’t come from a programming background
Selenium was a natural choice, since it is already being used elsewhere in the department, and it has a handy interface which lets you record tests easily.
