Property-Based Testing with PropEr, Erlang, and Elixir
Property-based testing helps you create better, more solid tests with little code. By using the PropEr framework in both Erlang and Elixir, this book teaches you how to automatically generate test cases, test stateful programs, and change how you design your software for more principled and reliable approaches. You will be able to better explore the problem space, validate the assumptions you make when coming up with program behavior, and expose unexpected weaknesses in your design. PropEr will even show you how to reproduce the bugs it found. With this book, you will be writing efficient property-based tests in no time.
Most tests only demonstrate that the code behaves how the developer expected it to behave, and therefore carry the same blind spots as their authors when special conditions or edge cases show up. Learn how to see things differently with property tests written in PropEr.
Start with the basics of property tests, such as writing stateless properties, and usin ...
Quick Start Guide to Penetration Testing
Get started with NMAP, OpenVAS, and Metasploit in this short book and understand how NMAP, OpenVAS, and Metasploit can be integrated with each other for greater flexibility and efficiency. You will begin by working with NMAP and ZENMAP and learning the basic scanning and enumeration process. After getting to know the differences between TCP and UDP scans, you will learn to fine tune your scans and efficiently use NMAP scripts. This will be followed by an introduction to OpenVAS vulnerability management system. You will then learn to configure OpenVAS and scan for and report vulnerabilities.
The next chapter takes you on a detailed tour of Metasploit and its basic commands and configuration. You will then invoke NMAP and OpenVAS scans from Metasploit. Lastly, you will take a look at scanning services with Metasploit and get to know more about Meterpreter, an advanced, dynamically extensible payload that is extended over the network at runtime.

Testing Microservices with Mountebank
Testing Microservices with Mountebank is your guide to the ins and outs of testing microservices with service virtualization. The book offers unique insights into microservices application design and state-of-the-art testing practices that will deepen your microservices skills and improve your applications.
Even if you lab test each service in isolation, it's challenging - and potentially dangerous - to test a live microservices system that's changing and growing. Fortunately, you can use Mountebank to imitate the components of a distributed microservices application to give you a good approximation of the runtime conditions as you test individual services.
Testing Microservices with Mountebank introduces the powerful practice of service virtualization. In it, author Brandon Byars, Mountebank's creator, offers unique insights into microservices application design and state-of-the-art testing practices. You'll expand your understanding of micr ...

Testing and Tuning Market Trading Systems
Build, test, and tune financial, insurance or other market trading systems using C++ algorithms and statistics. You've had an idea and have done some preliminary experiments, and it looks promising. Where do you go from here? Well, this book discusses and dissects this case study approach.
Seemingly good backtest performance isn't enough to justify trading real money. You need to perform rigorous statistical tests of the system's validity. Then, if basic tests confirm the quality of your idea, you need to tune your system, not just for best performance, but also for robust behavior in the face of inevitable market changes. Next, you need to quantify its expected future behavior, assessing how bad its real-life performance might actually be, and whether you can live with that. Finally, you need to find its theoretical performance limits so you know if its actual trades conform to this theoretical expectation, enabling you to dump the system if it does not live up to expectations. ...
Hands-On Microservices - Monitoring and Testing
Microservices are the latest "right" way of developing web applications. Microservices architecture has been gaining momentum over the past few years, but once you've started down the microservices path, you need to test and optimize the services. This book focuses on exploring various testing monitoring, and optimization techniques for microservices.
The book starts with the evolution of software architecture style, from monolithic to virtualized, to microservices architecture. Then you will explore methods to deploy microservices and various implementation patterns. With the help of a real-world example, you will understand how external APIs help product developers to focus on core competencies.
After that, you will learn testing techniques, such as Unit Testing Integration Testing Functional Testing and Load Testing. Next, you will explore performance testing tools, such as JMeter, and Gatling. Then, we deep dive into monitoring techni ...
