Even More Board Farm Goodness - An Update on the REST API for Automated Testing - Tim Bird, Sony Corporation & Harish Bansal, TimeSys

This talk presents an update on work to create a standard API between automated tests and board farm hardware and software. Previously, we introduced the notion of a dual REST/command-line API that could be used for discovery, control and operation of hardware and network resources in a test lab. We would like to highlight additional progress of the project over the past year. There are now APIs for control of audio hardware in the lab. Also, the API usage has been integrated into a few different testing frameworks.  We will describe the new APIs we have added, and demonstrate new test frameworks working with the REST API system.  This includes frameworks for performing UI testing of a device under test.  Although different equipment is utilized in different test labs (or board farms), by using the REST API the same test can be run in the different labs to obtain test results and provide quality assurance for products. It is hoped that this board farm API abstraction will pave the way for more sharing of automated tests and testing resources, to accelerate the use of automated testing for products based on embedded Linux.
