EEA TestNet: Platform for Validating Application Functionality and Performance

EEA members can now test their Enterprise Ethereum applications at scale in a controlled manner through the EEA TestNet. This testing “sandbox” enables members to gain insights and experiment on the best ways to deliver value to customers without incurring operational costs of a live environment.

The TestNet work is intended to allow the deployment of relatively short-lived Enterprise Ethereum networks. As well as testing Dapps, and conformance to EEA specifications, it is possible to deploy specific configurations for a limited time in order to run experiments.

The EEA TestNet has been developed and managed by The Machine Consultancy, and we are grateful to Antoine Toulmé for his extensive work. EEA members are welcome to join the Interoperability Testing Working Group, and participate in the development of the TestNet and its capabilities.

Streamlines the process of testing and developing scalable products, making it faster, easier, and more affordable.

Provides a live, easy-to-use, automated production network where users can add their own nodes to test various possibilities.

Offers flexibility to teams needing to iterate quickly.

Enables the reuse of test files to ensure they can accurately compare results between test runs.

Here are a few relevant use cases:

  1. Measure Fault Tolerance: Scale your network and implement a network partition to measure and observe the fault tolerance of your system.
  2. Security Tests: Run a variety of practical security tests like simulating a 51% attack on your network.
  3. Load Testing: Run load tests on your smart contracts to measure gas costs and understand your limits under a variety of conditions.
  4. Blockchain Migration: See how your blockchain migration would integrate with an enterprise business’ legacy systems.
  5. Integration Tests: Run integration tests and measure the effects of EIPs or other changes.
  6. Disaster Recovery: Replicate your production network and hot sites to test and measure the effectiveness of your disaster recovery plan.

As part of their membership, EEA members can get TestNet portal information through the Member Collaboration site.
