How to test it

The Maven build script provides hooks for run unit tests and generate code coverage reports in HTML.

To run tests on all tiers together do this:

  1. Execute mvn clean test jacoco:report
  2. Open in your browser the file at PROJECT_HOME/target/site/jacoco/index.html

To run tests on a single tier do this:

  1. Execute mvn clean test-compile surefire:test@tier jacoco:report@tier where tier is one of ui, appl, model
  2. Open in your browser the file at PROJECT_HOME/target/site/jacoco/{ui, appl, model}/index.html

To run tests on all the tiers in isolation do this:

  1. Execute mvn exec:exec@tests-and-coverage
  2. To view the Model tier tests open in your browser the file at PROJECT_HOME/target/site/jacoco/model/index.html
  3. To view the Application tier tests open in your browser the file at PROJECT_HOME/target/site/jacoco/appl/index.html
  4. To view the UI tier tests open in your browser the file at PROJECT_HOME/target/site/jacoco/ui/index.html

How to generate the Design documentation PDF

  1. Execute mvn exec:exec@docs
  2. Note: this command will fail on a clean project without a /target directory. Create the directory first if running after a clean operation without any intervening commands that create the directory, such as compile.
  3. The generated PDF will be in PROJECT_HOME/target/ directory

How to create a zipfile distribution of the source for the project

  1. Execute mvn exec:exec@zip
