The fusionforge code base includes two test suites, which can perform :
- a number of unit tests (including some syntactical ones) that are applied to the code.
- other higher-level functionnal tests, which are conducted with Selenium.
$ make build-unit-tests
Applying unit tests :
$ cd tests/ $ phpunit AllTests.php
Individual test sources are in :
Functional test suite
The principle is to run a series of tests against the Web interface of the forge, in a controlled Firefox Web browser, using the Selenium tool. The tests are written in a PHPUnit Test Suite, which includes invocation of Selenium test primitives to check contents of the Web pages.
Running the whole test suite
The easiest way is to use the Virtual machine development environment which provides all necessary dependencies, including the correct initialization of the database so that it can be reinitialized between test cases.
The environment installed in that VM is similar to the one used by the project build bots, which help testing the tests before deploying to the whole project.
Selenium in Fusionforge tests
Run a single selenium test example :
sh -x tests/scripts/phpunit.sh RPMCentos52Tests.php --wait --filter="ContextualHelp::testContextualHelp"
