NAME ^

Test::WWW::Selenium::Conversion::IDE

VERSION ^

0.5

SYNOPSIS ^

****NOTE THIS IS IN ALPHA****

This module exports two functions to your test file, ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file and ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file.

The objective is to run through Selenium IDE HTML files (Selenese) and run the tests as part of TAP in your perl test suite.

Rather than produce a perl test file which by itself can be run, this sits between a test file and the Selenese tests, converting on the fly, so you can just add more tests in as you get more user stories, and they will automatically run for you.

This uses Test::WWW::Selenium and tries hard to use close to equivalents to the IDE commands. I do not expect it to be perfect, but should perform fairly close to.

****ALPHA - not all IDE commands have yet been converted, expect updates - ALPHA****

DESCRIPTION ^

How to use

Follow instructions found to download and start the Selenium Server, and you should take into account what the selenium docs say about running this. You may also need a webserver to serve you a dev version of your website (if that is what you are wanting to test).

In your test file:

  use Test::More;
  use Test::WWW::Selenium;
  use Test::WWW::Selenium::Conversion::IDE;
  
  my $sel = Test::WWW::Selenium->new( {creds} ); # See documentation for Test::WWW::Selenium
  
  ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file( $sel, $suite_file_name, $location_of_sel_test_root );
  ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file( $sel, {
    test_file => $test_file_name,
    sel_test_root => $location_of_sel_test_root,
  } );
  
  done_testing();

$location_of_sel_test_root is optional, it defaults to t/selenium_tests

The selenium_server object is left to you to do in your test file, as your credentials, the browser you want to use... may be different. There is no helper method for this.

You can also pass in an optional XML::LibXML parser if you have one built, either as the last arg to ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file or 'parser => $oParser' added to the args href to ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file.

It is worth noting, that whilst there is a difference between verify and assert in the IDE, the Conversion treats them as equivalent. This is currently deliberate, or a feature, and is unlikely to be changed in the future - who wants their test suite to croak rather than report failures? Not me!

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file

If you have a suite file in your selenium tests directory (default t/selenium_tests) then using this function will run all test files listed in the suite

  ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file( $oTestWWWSelenium, $suite_file_name );
  ide_to_TWS_run_from_suite_file( $oTestWWWSelenium, $suite_file_name, $selenium_test_directory_path);

ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file

If you just want to run one Selenese HTML IDE test file, then use this method (again, default location is t/selenium_tests)

  ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file( $oTestWWWSelenium, $test_file_name );
  ide_to_TWS_run_from_test_file( $oTestWWWSelenium, $test_file_name, $selenium_test_directory_path );
