Software Validation of Applications Deployed on Windows Azure Platform

Software Validation of Applications Deployed on Windows Azure Platform

Published by Infosys
As a very popular Infosys adage goes, “In God we trust, rest all we test”, it reflects the importance of testing in the software development life cycle.

As software programs get complex, testing becomes vital and error prone. Testing an application on cloud is quite different from testing an application in the traditional on-premise environment. Microsoft® AzureTM is one such cloud platform that runs applications on the cloud. From a testing perspective, Test environment setup on AzureTM is quick and easy which can save considerable time and effort as compared to test infrastructure setup and administration. However by design, the AzureTM platform imposes certain restrictions on services deployed on it. In this paper we have explained challenges along with approaches to handle different aspects of testing on AzureTM . Also we will provide an insight into the end-to-end testing lifecycle involved for testing applications to be deployed on Windows® AzureTM.

platform imposes certain restrictions on services deployed on it. Thus testing anapplication hosted on Azure
