Using Erlang to Test non-Erlang Products.
Ericsson AB

Graham Crowe has been working for Ericsson since the mid 90s, mainly testing Mobile Telecommunication Systems, including GSM, WCDMA and LTE. His main focus in recent years has been Test Automation. He didn’t discover Erlang/OTP until 2005 but has been an active user of it ever since.

Graham Crowe is Giving the Following Talks
Using Erlang to Test non-Erlang Products

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.
