I just caught this demo of Tracetest cypress integration. It looks really cool providing a lot of information beyond the UI tests by also validating the microservice behaviors and allowing the dev or tester to examine the entire action in the backend.
Tracetest ensures reliable testing across local and CI envs and has a permanent spot in the Tyk toolkit to ensure our future releases are rock solid.
I love the concept of Trace-Based-Testing (TBT). It marries testing and tracing quite nicely - why choose, when you can have both? Also, it helps drive Observability-driven-development (ODD), and brings developers, testers, SREs together. I’ve played around with Tracetest since its early versions and it’s been cool to see the product evolve. Definitely some cool stuff brewing!
Tracetest is a really interesting solution helping us to build our tests cases based on OpenTelemetry. It opens doors to the testing community to build functional and non-functional test cases.
My ultimate pick was Tracetest which was a phenomal show stopper for E2E testing and tracing use cases. A phenomenal improvement over other tools in the space that I’ve seen.
I watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMRicNlaehc and it’s a really cool idea!
It looks like you already have the visualizations (I really like the model/component graph I saw in y'alls video demo of this) so it'd really be just the extension part. Well I have to say, I'm thrilled to see a project like this one out there.
