Jasmine Adapter for JsTestDriver




Create, or update, a jstestdriver.conf file (see wiki page for more info).

Update your jstestdriver.conf by prepending the jasmine library and the adapter's source files.

For example:

- "../jasmine/lib/jasmine-1.0.1.js"
- "../JasmineAdapter/src/*"
- "your_source_files.js"
- "your_test_files.js"

Copy and (included) to your working directory, for convenience.

# copy
cp /path/to/jasmine-jstestdriver-adapter/*.sh ./

First: run and supply -p, for port, and -j, path to jstestdriver.jar or follow the convention defined in the .sh scripts (see Caveats below).

Open up http://localhost:9876/capture (update for your port) in any browser.

Finally: run to test all tests (specs) included with the jstestdriver.conf. Optionally pass a -j and -t arguments to to set the path to jstestdriver.jar and any test you'd only like to run, respectively.

Directory Layout

  • src: The adapter source code. Intent is to match interface with interface.
  • src-test: The test files that verifies that the adapter works as intended.


jsTestDriver.conf and *.sh files

The files located in this repo assume that the parent folder has the jasmine source and a jstestdriver compiled available.

Update the paths, or pass arguments (as explained above), to reflect your own layout if you'd like to test the adapter.

JSTD 1.3.2

This release has a known bug (232) with relative paths. Quick solution is to place the jasmine.js and JasmineAdapter.js inside of the absolute path. In other words, make sure you do not use ... Other options are to: use a 1.3.1.jar or compile a jar from the HEAD (trunk) of the JSTD repository.
