+===========
+Arrow Usage
+===========
+
+
+Synopsis
+========
+| arrow [OPTION...] [TESTFILE...]
+
+
+Description
+===========
+Arrow is a test framework designed to promote test-driven JavaScript development. Arrow provides a consistent test creation and execution environment for both Developers and Quality Engineers.
+
+Arrow aims to completely remove the line between development’s Unit tests, and Functional and Integration tests by providing a uniform way to create and execute both.
+
+Arrow itself is a thin, extensible layer that marries JavaScript, NodeJS, PhantomJS and Selenium. Arrow allows you to write tests using YUI-Test and execute those tests using NodeJS, PhantomJS or Selenium. Additionally, Arrow provides a rich mechanism for building, organizing and executing test and test scenarios.
+
+
+Options
+=======
+--help
+ display this help page
+--version
+ display installed arrow version
+--lib comma separated list of js files needed by the test
+--page path to the mock or production html page, for example: http://www.yahoo.com or mock.html
+--driver selenium|phantomjs|browser. (default: phantomjs)
+--browser firefox|chrome|opera|reuse. Specify browser version with a hypen, ex.: firefox-4.0 or opera-11.0 (default: firefox)
+--controller a custom controller javascript file
+--reuseSession true/false. Specifies whether to run tests in existing sessions managed by selenium. Visit http://selenuim_host/wd/hub to setup sessions (default: false)
+--report true/false. Creates report files in junit and json format, and also prints a consolidated test report summary on console
+--testName comma separated list of test names defined in test descriptor. all other tests will be ignored
+--group comma separated list of groups defined in test descriptor, all other groups will be ignored
+--logLevel DEBUG|INFO|WARN|ERROR|FATAL (default: INFO)
+--dimension a custom dimension file for defining ycb contexts
+--context name of ycb context
+
+
+Examples
+========
+| Below are some examples to help you get started.
+
+| Unit test:
+| arrow --lib=../src/greeter.js test-unit.js
+
+| Unit test with a mock page:
+| arrow --page=testMock.html --lib=./test-lib.js test-unit.js
+
+| Unit test with selenium:
+| arrow --page=testMock.html --lib=./test-lib.js --driver=selenium test-unit.js
+
+| Integration test:
+| arrow --page=http://www.hostname.com/testpage --lib=./test-lib.js test-int.js
+
+| Integration test:
+| arrow --page=http://www.hostname.com/testpage --lib=./test-lib.js --driver=selenium test-int.js
+
+| Custom controller:

+================================
+Arrow and Continuous Integration
+================================
+
+Arrow has always had Continuous Integration in mind. Arrow provides you with all of the necessary tools to run in a CI System.
+
+Dealing With Different Environments or Hosts
+--------------------------------------------
+
+In all CI systems, you must deal with varying hosts as your code moves through its validation cycle. For example, as you are developing, the host of the application will likely be *localhost* or perhaps a development machine. Once you commit your code it may go to an *integration* environment where the host will likely be different. Yet as that code moves to your *staging* or even *production* environment, your host will change once more.
+
+You can manage this using `test descriptors <./arrow_in-depth.html#test-suite-organization>`_ and `dimensions files </arrow_in-depth.html#test-descriptor-parametrization-and-test-environments>`_
+
+You can also manage this by using the **--baseUrl** parameter in your command:
+
+::
+
+ arrow <some test or test descriptor> --baseUrl=http://some.base.url.com
+
+Arrow will override any *baseUrl* value either in the *config* file or it the *test descriptor* and will use it instead.
+
+Reporting
+---------
+
+As `described before, </arrow_in-depth.html#reporting`_ Arrow supports two types of reports. If you use multiple *test descriptors* for your execution, Arrow will *merge* the results and report all results in one report (of each type).
+
+To enable reporting simply include the **--report=true** parameter in your command
+
+::
+
+ arrow <some test or test descriptor> --report=true

+Arrow FAQs
+==========
+
+If you don't find an answer here, please do not hesitate to email us
+
+How to run arrow tests from Linux box to Windows machine?
+----------------------------------------------------------
+
+Make sure you have following setup before running arrow tests
+
+1. Linux box has arrow installed and it has all the packages listed `here <http://devel-stage.corp.yahoo.com/ynodejs_arrow/guide/arrow_getting_started.html#linux-installation>`_ (Only start arrow_server if you are running unit tests)
+2. Windows machine has `selenium server <http://devel-stage.corp.yahoo.com/ynodejs_arrow/guide/arrow_getting_started.html#selenium-server>`_ up and running (Check http://yourIP:4444/wd/hub is loading fine)
+3. Now run the arrow test and do not forget to pass the --seleniumHost=http://yourIP:4444/wd/hub while running your tests
+
+::
+
+ arrow test-descriptor.json --seleniumHost=http://110.32.34.65:4444/wd/hub --browser=firefox
+
+How to debug failures for, "arrow failed to collect report" cases?
+-------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+Usually this happens when there is some JS error inside your test script and to debug it further do following,
+
+1. Run selenium with default profile
+
+::
+
+ java -Dwebdriver.firefox.profile=default -jar selenium-server-standalone-2.25.0.jar
+
+2. Now from your firefox where you are running selenium, open http://yourIP:4444/wd/hub and create a firefox session
+3. Open the firebug console for this newly created session
+4. Trigger your tests, this will keep the browser window open after the tests fail and you can see JS errors on the console
+
+
+Error: Cannot find module 'abbrev'
+----------------------------------
+
+::
+
+ node.js:201
+ throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
+ ^
+ Error: Cannot find module 'abbrev'
+ at Function._resolveFilename (module.js:334:11)
+ at Function._load (module.js:279:25)
+ at Module.require (module.js:357:17)

+ at Module.load (module.js:351:31)
+ at Function._load (module.js:310:12)
+ at Module.require (module.js:357:17)
+
+Solution
+========
+
+Install the abbrev module
+
+::
+
+ sudo npm install abbrev -g
+
+Error: SyntaxError?: Unexpected token }
+---------------------------------------
+
+::
+
+ SyntaxError?: Unexpected token }
+
+ node.js:201
+ throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
+ ^
+ SyntaxError: Unexpected token }

+ at Array.0 (module.js:470:10)
+ at EventEmitter._tickCallback (node.js:192:40)
+
+Solution
+========
+
+It's likely you have an extra character in your descriptor JSON file.
+
+Error: Arrow Server is not Running
+----------------------------------
+
+::
+
+ node.js:137
+ throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
+ ^
+ arrow_server is not running
+
+Solution
+========
+You need to start Arrow server like this
+
+::
+
+ arrow_server
+
+Because arrow_server needs to KEEP running, start it on a different command prompt than the one you are using for testing
+
+How do I point Arrow to a Specific Selenium Server
+--------------------------------------------------
+
+There may be situations where the Selenium Server may not be running on the localhost and/or you may be pointing to a Selenium Grid instance.
+
+Solution
+========
+
+You can tell Arrow to point to a specific Selenium Host in two ways
+
+1. Update the `config file's <./arrow_in-depth.html#configuration>`_ seleniumHost value
+2. Use the **--seleniumHost** parameter in your command
+
+**Note** you need to include the **FULL** path to Selenium Server like this:
+
+::
+
+ seleniumHost=http://url.to.server:port/wd/hub
+
+[ERROR] ArrowServer - <Buffer 65 78 65
+--------------------------------------
+
+When running Arrow Server, you get a buffer error like this
+
+::
+
+ [2012-06-07 16:52:24.745] [ERROR] ArrowServer - <Buffer 65 78 65 63 76 70 28 29 3a 20 50 65 72 6d 69 73 73 69 6f 6e 20 64 65 6e 69 65 64 0a>
+
+Solution
+========
+
+Make sure you have `installed PhantomJS <./arrow_getting_started.html#mac-installation>`_
+
+How can I use the Locator Controller to Login?
+----------------------------------------------
+
+Built-in, Arrow comes with two controllers, default and `locator <./arrow_in-depth.html#the-locator-controller>`_
+
+Solution
+========
+
+You can use the locator controller to *log you into* Yahoo should you need it. In this example we'll do the following:
+
+1. Open login.yahoo.com with the final URL as the *done* URL
+2. Execute the test
+
+::
+
+ [
+ {
+ "settings": [ "master" ],
+ "name": "YahooLogin",
+ "config": {
+ "baseUrl": "http://finance.yahoo.com"
+ },
+ "dataprovider" : {
+
+ "Use Locator to Login" : {
+ "group" : "func",
+ "params" :{
+ "scenario": [
+ {
+ "page": "http://login.yahoo.com/config/login?login=arrowtestuser1@yahoo.com&passwd=123456&.done=$$config.baseUrl$$"
+ },
+ {
+ "page": "$$config.baseUrl$$"
+ },
+ {
+ "test": "test-title.js",
+ "title": "Yahoo! Finance - Business Finance, Stock Market, Quotes, News"
+ }
+ ]
+ }
+ }
+ }
+ },
+ {
+ "settings": [ "environment:development" ]
+ }
+ ]
+
+
+How can I install a specific Arrow version?
+-------------------------------------------
+
+Though we don't encourage this, there may be times when you may need to use a specific version of Arrow.
+
+Solution
+========
+
+You can install a specific version like this:
+
+::
+
+TODO... needs to be updated
+
+ sudo npm install --registry=http:// arrow@<version> -g
+
+To install version 0.0.43
+
+::
+
+TODO... needs to be updated
+
+ sudo npm install --registry=http:// arrow@0.0.43 -g
+
+
+My Project/Tests are using NodeJS 4.x, the new versions of Arrow expect NodeJS 6+. Will I have problems?
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+After version XXX of Arrow, Arrow will no longer support NodeJS 4.x. How will this affect my tests, and what impact will this have to me?
+
+Solution
+========
+
+Because our dependencies are part of the NPM package, provided you do not upgrade, this should not cause you any problems. In other words, the dependencies for a given version of Arrow are tied to that version. Therefore, you should be able to continue using a previous version of Arrow without any issues.
