Simple and clean testing for JavaFX.

Status

Version 4 is in alpha phase. Release notes are listed in CHANGES.md and latest documentation is only available via gradle javadoc.

Features

  • A fluent and clean API.
  • Flexible setup and cleanup of JavaFX test fixtures.
  • Simple robots to simulate user interactions.
  • Rich collection of matchers to verify expected states.

Support for:

  • Java 8 features and JavaFX 8 controls.
  • JUnit testing framework and Hamcrest matchers.
  • Precise screenshots of failed tests.
  • Headless testing using Monocle.

Example

public class DesktopPaneTest extends ApplicationTest {
    @Override
    public void start(Stage stage) {
        Scene scene = new Scene(new DesktopPane(), 800, 600);
        stage.setScene(scene);
        stage.show();
    }

    @Test
    public void should_drag_file_into_trashcan() {
        // given:
        rightClickOn("#desktop").moveTo("New").clickOn("Text Document");
        write("myTextfile.txt").push(ENTER);

        // when:
        drag(".file").dropTo("#trash-can");

        // then:
        verifyThat("#desktop", hasChildren(0, ".file"));
    }
}

Documentation

Motivation

The motivation for creating TestFX was that the existing library for testing JavaFX, Jemmy, was too verbose and unwieldy. We wanted more behavior driven tests with easy-to-read code that our tester could follow and modify on her own.

Today, TestFX is used in all of the about 100 automated GUI tests in LoadUI (video).

Similar Frameworks

  • Jemmy, by the Oracle SQE team.
  • Automaton, a new testing framework that supports JavaFX as well as Swing.
  • MarvinFX, test support for JavaFX Propertys.

Credits

TestFX was initially created by @dainnilsson and @minisu as a part of LoadUI in 2012. Today, it is being extended and maintained by @hastebrot, @Philipp91, @minisu and the other contributors.
