Discussion on: Playwright for E2E testing?

This is likely due to my misunderstanding of E2E. I generally find E2E implementations tend to focus only on one end, which is fine when you already have all the integration testing that validate those ends.

But even then the E2E testing is executed in the wrong place. E2E is a validation of the system setup. All of the efforts goes into verifying lower environments. Being test environments they are "broken" to test a situation. So integration tests fail and everyone is trying to find that one person who can put it back together.

But with a good suite of contract tests in place you focus on the real issue, components aren't connected together correctly. Anyway I ramble.
