running persistent tests
all tests are ran from the persistent-test directory
cabal configure --enable-tests
If you would like to configure tests with a specific backend that can be enabled using
cabal configure -f<backend> --enable-tests
where is one of mongodb/postgresql/mysql/couchdb.
Now run with
cabal build && dist/build/test/test
By default the sqlite backend is tested. To test other backends, you can give a flag described in persisten-test.
cabal configure -fmongodb --enable-tests
You can develop just against your preferred backend and the community should help sort out issues with others.
However, we have a Dockerfile that you can use to install all the databases.
docker build -t persistent . docker run -d --name postgres postgres:9.3.5 docker run --link postgres:postgres --name persistent -v `pwd`:/home/haskell -t -i persistent /bin/bash
This only works on Linux, but you can use Linux on Mac or Windows through Virtualbox.
After building you still need to start up the databases in the background (other than sqlite) that you are testing. For example:
mongod --smallfiles &
Docker does not support upstart so just because you install a database does not mean it will be running. You must launch each one in the background.
If someone can contribute information on how to run persistent or MySQL that would be appreciated.
