chore: improve steps for running 'npm test' #82

commented Jul 18, 2019


When running 'npm test' locally it is important to set some environment variables.

The value of DASHDB_SCHEMA must be set to a specific pattern; otherwise certain tests fail because some cleanup doesn't occur beforehand.

Or other variables


can be set to compute the schema name ( following the proper pattern) for the user.

This is how the Jenkins job sets up the environment variables before running npm test, and the
user should do it to see the same results.

Big thanks to @b-admike for helping me debug this.

It solves the failure

1) Discover and build models
       should discover and build models:

      Uncaught AssertionError [ERR_ASSERTION]: error should not be reported
      + expected - actual


I experienced when running npm test locally. The value I specified for DASHDB_SCHEMA didn't follow the pattern and was causing the failure.

With the env variables properly set, all tests are passing.

This is where the schema name is computed following the pattern:

This is the clean up code, which uses same schema name pattern:

This will create a schema with the name: **SCHEMA1_DASHDB_DARWIN_10**

This pattern of the schema name is important for database **cleanup** and **seeding** purposes.

+1 to update the README to describe all necessary steps.

I am confused though - why is it necessary to provide all of these properties manually? Why cannot our test suite infer them automatically?

  • Read PACKAGE_NAME from package.json's property name
  • Set BUILD_NUMBER to arbitrary value (e.g. 1`)
  • Set nodeVersion to the value returned by process.versions.node.split('.')[0] (JavaScript code to be executed in Node.js land)

I think this is great for future enhancement. IIRC the pretest was originally created to set these values up using env variables set by Jenkins. @bajtos @emonddr do we want to create a follow up issue for it?
