Messiah

Messiah enables using Ruby testing tools for integration testing with platforms that support CGI. Notably, PHP.

Installation

gem install messiah

Configuration: RSpec

In the spec_helper.rb file, configure Messiah. Specifically, the app root and the command used to execute your app via CGI. Once the app is configured, include Messiah into RSpec.

Messiah.configure do
  root File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), 'fixtures', 'www')
  command 'php-cgi -d cgi.force_redirect=0'
end

Spec::Runner.configure do |config|
  Messiah.rspec(config)
end

Configuration: Cucumber

You configure Messiah in the env.rb file.

Messiah.configure do
  root File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), '..', '..', 'spec', 'fixtures', 'www')
  command 'php-cgi -d cgi.force_redirect=0'
end

Messiah.cucumber(self)

Other Configuration Options

test_root is the directory containing the test suite being run. This is passed to your application through an HTTP header. This can be used to source mocks from the fixtures directory. app_root is the directory that actually contains your application. host is the hostname that should be used in the requests. script is the name of the script all requests should be sent through. This is useful if your app uses PATH_INFO database is a hash containing the ActiveRecord connection parameters

Any of the options may be set simply:

Messiah.host = 'ahost.example.local'

The configuration values are automatically reset back to their original configured state prior to every test. This is useful if you need to test different hosts individually.

Database Support and a Warning

Messiah will, by default, delete all data in the configured test database. Don't point it at your development database. This is to be sure the database is always starting with a known blank slate.

The database support is functional but still has rough edges. It uses Dr. Nic's Magic Models gem for generating ActiveRecord models from your schema at runtime. factory_girl is the factory library used. Additional documentation is coming on the database support.
