NAME ^

TAP::Harness::JUnit - Generate JUnit compatible output from TAP results

SYNOPSIS ^

    use TAP::Harness::JUnit;
    my $harness = TAP::Harness::JUnit->new({
        xmlfile => 'output.xml',
        package => 'database',
        ...
    });
    $harness->runtests(@tests);

DESCRIPTION ^

The only difference between this module and TAP::Harness is that this adds two optional arguments: 'xmlfile' and 'package', that cause the output to be formatted into XML in format similar to one that is produced by the JUnit testing framework.

METHODS ^

This modules inherits all functions from TAP::Harness.

new

These options are added (compared to TAP::Harness):

xmlfile

Name of the file XML output will be saved to. In case this argument is ommited, default of "junit_output.xml" is used and a warning is issued.

Alternatively, the name of the output file can be specified in the $JUNIT_OUTPUT_FILE environment variable

package

The Hudson/Jenkins continuous-integration systems support separating test results into "packages". By default any number of output xml files will be merged into the default package "(root)".

Setting a package-name will place all test results from the current run into that package. You can also set the environment variable $JUNIT_PACKAGE to do the same.

notimes (DEPRECATED)

If provided (and true), test case times will not be recorded.

namemangle

Specify how to mangle testcase names. This is sometimes required to interact with buggy JUnit consumers that lack sufficient validation. Available values are:

hudson

Replace anything but alphanumeric characters with underscores. This is default for historic reasons.

perl (RECOMMENDED)

Replace slashes in directory hierarchy with dots so that the filesystem layout resemble Java class hierarchy.

This is the recommended setting and may become a default in future.

none

Do not do any transformations.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES ^

The name of the output file can be specified in the $JUNIT_OUTPUT_FILE environment variable

The package name that Hudson/Jenkins use to categorise test results can be specified in $JUNIT_PACKAGE.

SEE ALSO ^

JUnit XML schema was obtained from http://jra1mw.cvs.cern.ch:8180/cgi-bin/jra1mw.cgi/org.glite.testing.unit/config/JUnitXSchema.xsd?view=markup.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ^

This module was partly inspired by Michael Peters' TAP::Harness::Archive. It was originally written by Lubomir Rintel (GoodData) <lubo.rintel@gooddata.com> and includes code from several contributors.

BUGS ^

The comments that are above the ok or not ok are considered the output of the test. This, though being more logical, is against TAP specification.

XML::Simple is used to generate the output. It is suboptimal and involves some hacks.

During testing, the resulting files are not tested against the schema, which would be a good thing to do.
