Base component for rapidly writing/running test cases.
- A Test Package is a collection of Test Cases that tests the functionality
of an application/service/whatever.
- A Test Case is a collection of Tests to apply to a particular CF component,
tag or include file.
- A Test is a sequence of calls to the code being tested and Assertions about
the results we get from the code.
- An Assertion is a statement we make about the results we get that should
evaluate to true if the tested code is working properly.
How are these things represented in test code using this file?
- A Test Package is a directory that can be referred to by a CF mapping, and
ideally outside the web root for security.
- A Test Case is a CF component in that directory that extends this component.
- A Test is a method in one of these components. The method name should start with
the word "test", it should require no arguments and return void. Any setup or
clearup code common to all test functions can be added to optional setup() and
teardown() methods, which again take no arguments and return void.
Tests in each Test Case are run in alphabetical order. If you want your tests
to run in a particular order you could name them test01xxx, test02yyy, etc.
- An Assertion is a call to the assert() method (inherited from this component) inside
a test method. assert() takes a string argument, an expression (see ColdFusion
evaluate() documentation) that evaluates to true or false. If false, a "failure"
is recorded for the test case and the test case fails. assert() tries to include
the value of any variables it finds in the expression.
If there are specific variable values you would like included in the failure message,
pass them as additional string arguments to assert(). Multiple variables can be
listed in a single space-delimited string if this is convenient.
For more complicated assertions you may call the fail() method directly, which takes
a single message string as an argument.
- If an uncaught exception is thrown an "error" is recorded for the Test Case and the
Test Case fails.
Running tests
Assuming this file is under a com.rocketboots.rocketunit cf mapping, you have some test cases
under a com.myco.myapp.sometestpackage cf mapping, and a test case SomeTestCase.cfc in that
To run a test package:
<cfset test = createObject("component", "com.rocketboots.rocketunit.Test")>
<cfset test.runTestPackage("")>
To run a specific test case:
<cfset test = createObject("component", "")>
<cfset test.runTest()>
To see human readable output after running a test:
The test results are available in the request.test structure. If you would like to
use a different key in request (as we do for the rocketunit self-tests) for the results
you can pass the key name as a second argument to the run method.
You can call run() multiple times and the test results will be combined.
If you wish to reset the test results before calling run() again, call resetTestResults().
