NAME

Test::SVN::Repo - Subversion repository fixtures for testing

VERSION

version 0.022

SYNOPSIS

# Create a plain on-disk repo
my $repo = Test::SVN::Repo->new;

# Create a repo with password authenticated server
$repo = Test::SVN::Repo->new(
        users => { joe => 'secret', fred => 'foobar' },
    );

my $repo_url = $repo->url;

# do stuff with your new repo
system("svn co --username joe --password secret $repo_url");

DESCRIPTION

Create temporary subversion repositories for testing.

If no authentication is required, a simple on-disk repo is created. An svnserve instance is created when authentication is required.

Repositories and servers are cleaned up when the object is destroyed.

Requires the svnadmin and svnserve external binaries. These are both included in standard Subversion releases.

METHODS

CONSTRUCTOR

Creates a new svn repository, spawning an svnserve server if authentication is required.

Arguments. All are optional.

  • users

    Hashref containing username/password pairs for repository authentication.

    If this attribute is specified, there must be at least one user. Specifying users causes an svnserve instance to be created.

  • root_path

    Base path to create the repo. By default, a temporary directory is created, and deleted on exit.

  • keep_files

    Prevent root_path from being deleted in the destructor.

    If root_path is provided in the constructor, it will be preserved by default. If no root_path is provided, and a temporary directory is created, it will be destroyed by default.

  • verbose

    Verbose output. Default off.

  • start_port end_port retry_count

    Server mode only.

    In order to find a free port for the server, ports are randomly selected from the range [start_port, end_port] until one succeeds. Gives up after retry_count failures.

    Default values: 1024, 65536, 1000

READ-ONLY ACCESSORS

url

Repository URL.

repo_path

Local path to the SVN repository.

is_authenticated

True if the the svn repo requires authorisation. This is enabled by supplying a users hashref to the constructor.

server_pid

Process id of the svnserve process.

server_port

Listen port of the svnserve process.
