How to ensure Testing Robustness in Microservice Architectures and Cope with Test Smells

In projects, in which multiple units or modules are integrated, each unit or subsystem is tested; but still the integrated product should be verified which indicates the prominence of E2E testing. After integration, bug findings are very possible and after continuos deployments, retesting is needed to ensure the product quality. In order to reduce manual testing effort & trigger tests automatically, test automation is very important.

Testing asynchronous web services is much more difficult when the working principles are taken into consideration. In such cases, robustness of the tests are of great importance. Otherwise; sporadic results may lead to conflicts and misleadings.

To handle the sporadic results, all test codes should be analyzed to check whether any test smell exists. In this paper, possible test smell types and solutions against them are investigated. Preventions and results will be shared.
