You can run a particular test file from the command line, e.g.
- $ ruby test/cases/base_test.rb
+ $ ruby -Itest test/cases/base_test.rb
To run a specific test:
- $ ruby test/cases/base_test.rb -n test_something_works
+ $ ruby -Itest test/cases/base_test.rb -n test_something_works
You can run with a database other than the default you set in test/config.yml, using the ARCONN
environment variable:
- $ ARCONN=postgresql ruby test/cases/base_test.rb
+ $ ARCONN=postgresql ruby -Itest test/cases/base_test.rb
You can run all the tests for a given database via rake:
- $ rake test_postgresql
+ $ rake test_mysql
+The 'rake test' task will run all the tests for mysql, mysql2, sqlite3 and postgresql.
+== Identity Map
+By default the tests run with the Identity Map turned off. But all tests should pass whether or
+not the identity map is on or off. You can turn it on using the IM env variable:
+ $ IM=true ruby -Itest test/case/base_test.rb
+== Config file
+By default, the config file is expected to be at the path test/config.yml. You can specify a
+custom location with the ARCONFIG environment variable.
