Third-Party Hypervisor Management
Java Library
 Overview:
“When automation-testing a product that manages different hypervisors,
a standard approach would be to use a form of direct communication

“HP Quality Center – Eclipse” bridge
 Overview:
“Develop a tool which can translate test-description information, stored
in HP Quality Center database, into comments or annotations of the
automation code, and keep those descriptions in those two places
synchronized. Updating the test-description in automation code should
automatically synchronize those to HPQC database”

Interest in scripting languages, like PowerShell, Python, Perl;
English
22
Auto-generate a REST API client
 Overview:
“Some VMware back-end services are exposed as REST endpoints and
are implemented on the top of Spring REST support. It would be great if
REST service providers also provided REST API clients for remote
access of their services. This Intern project aims to facilitate the service
providers and their users by creating a tool that auto-generates REST
API clients in an automated manner. The tool must be built on the top of
Spring framework and in consistency with existing Spring projects and
concepts”
 Skillset:
Good knowledge of Java and OOP;
Understanding of design patterns;
Experience with Spring framework, Maven or REST is a plus;
English
23
HTML 5 extension library for SUITA test
automation framework
 Overview:
“SUITA test-automation framework is facilitating rapid test development
in heterogeneous UI environments – environments with multiple
technologies used to develop the product UI. SUITA is capable of
handling Selenium based UI as well as any other graphical UI via its
Sikuli extension. The objective of this project is to evaluate existing
HTML 5 functional test libraries, select the best one and implement
SUITA extension to enable interaction with HTML 5 user interfaces.”
 Skillset:

Automation Research #1
“Evaluate different approaches to automatically collect images from
successful automated UI test runs and develop a mechanism to share
these images (in order to visualize UI test results). The project will focus
on Selenium and Sikuli UI frameworks. Must develop images-repository
server, which will be used to store and share the acquired images.
Additionally, java libraries must be developed in order to enable easy

 Overview:
Software Engineer for UI Test
Automation Research #2
“Automate the process of verification and validation of data that is
shown in charts and graphs. Across the UI of VMware products we
visualize performance data of virtual-machines and hosts in one way or
another. This data is usually coming from the same source, but is
processed by different engines and presented to the user in a graphical
format –2D_charts, stacked charts, etc. Testing whether data shown on
such a chart is correct, is a purely manual process. This project will
explore approaches to analyze the charts in order to automate this
process and create a working proof of concept for a specific scenario”

 Overview:
Software Engineer for UI Test
Automation Research #3
“Evaluate methods of DOM tree analysis and comparison in order to test
web-UI. During development of software with large WEB based HTML
user interface, lots of changes are happening on daily basis. Sometimes
it is difficult to find what was changed and how – was there something
added, or deleted. We are exploring ways of automating that process by
means of DOM tree analysis and comparison. A proof-of-concept tool
should be able to run across WEB pages, analyze and save parts of
DOM tree, and then be able to tell in a smart way what got changed on
each page”
