Using Erlang to Test non-Erlang Products

By Erlang Central | Published: March 21, 2011

Complex products such as Radio Base Stations require complex Test
Environments to achieve test automation with high test coverage. There
are many compelling reasons for selecting Erlang/OTP for this task, even
if the product itself is not developed with Erlang.

Target Audience: Anyone with an interest in integration or systems testing.

Talk Objective: Discuss using Erlang for testing (integration or systems) non-Erlang products. This includes systems that are partially developed in Erlang or have no Erlang whatsoever. The objective is to highlight the usefulness of common test application (part of OTP) and the power QuickCheck for property based testing, by discussing what has been achieved in practice within Ericsson.
