UI Tests with Hobbes and Integration with Jenkins

Level 3
Level 3

Hello guys,

We want to starting writing UI tests for our Adobe AEM site. We are considering Hobbes, but also Selenium. We want to be able to run the tests with Jenkins or similar tool.

The idea is to run the tests right after a developer commits something to GIT. We know that it is possible with Selenium.

Is it possible with Hobbes too?

Additionally to what Scott has mentioned, you can also refer to the articles below:

Testing Your UI

What's New in AEM 6.2

Front End Testing with Hobbes.js - Perficient Blogs

NOTE: Refer "Main Advantages and key concepts" section of What's New in AEM 6.2

It says that it's easily integrable in continuous integration environment (i.e. Jenkins) as test outputs are regular jUnit.xml report files.

Thank you guys,

Good to know that it is possible to integrate Hobbes with Jenkins.

But I couldn't find any examples.

Can you provide an installation & command execution example?

I tested installing it with either:
- npm install -g hobbes-runner
- npm install hobbes-runner

But couldn't execute it running any of the following commands:

- hobbes-runner
- npm run hobbes-runner
- npm run ./node_modules/.bin/hobbes-runner
- ./node_modules/.bin/hobbes-runner

Am I doing anything wrong?
