We have lanched the PowerSlim project on codeplex.
Q: Why CodePlex? Why not GitHub or LaunchPad?
A: This project is intended to bring the Microsoft Windows PowerShell scripting language to the acceptance testing world. The current implementation is built on top of IronPython2.6. So it looks like the all ways lead us to Microsoft 🙂
There is the setup package available from the powerSlim 0.2. It will install all you need (Fitnesse, IronPython, WaferSlim, PowerSlim) to the C:\PowerSlim folder. Use it to get the idea how to setup PowerSlim. Later you can use your own installation of the Fitnesse and/or IronPython
. Please be sure that you have Java 6 installed before. You will get the Green Demo Suite at the end of the setup process. There are small amount of tests for a while. There will be more soon, stay tuned!
Original post starts here:
We have two hosts:
- BUILDER (where we build our project)
- TESTMACHINE (where we have SUT)
In that case we need to follow next steps to get the power of PowerSlim:
Now we are ready for testing…to be continued…
IronPython is an implementation of the Python programming language, targeting the .NET Framework and Mono, created by Jim Hugunin. Today Jim on his session “Deep Dive: Dynamic Languages in Microsoft .NET” has explained the Iron nature. It is the acronim from the “Implementation running on .Net”.
