NAME ^

Test::A8N::TestCase - Storytest testcase object

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $tc = Test::A8N::TestCase->new({
        data     => [ ... ],
        index    => ++$idx,
        filename => "cases/test1.tc",
    });

DESCRIPTION ^

This represents an individual testcase within a test file. It encapsulates the logic around parsing test instructions, sorting them and processing their arguments in such a way that they are readable by Test::FITesque::Test.

METHODS ^

Data Accessors

id

Returns the ID property from the testcase data. If none is supplied, it generates an ID from the testcase "name" property.

name

Returns the NAME property from the testcase data.

summary

Returns the SUMMARY property from the testcase data.

tags

Returns an array of the TAGS list from the testcase data. An example of the expected syntax is:

    TAGS:
        - clustering
        - smoke
expected

Returns an array of the EXPECTED list from the testcase data.

configuration

Returns an array of the CONFIGURATION list from the testcase data. This can be used by fixtures to load additional configuration that may be needed to run your test.

preconditions

Returns an array of the PRECONDITIONS list, used by "test_data" to compose a list of fixture calls.

postconditions

Returns an array of the POSTCONDITIONS list, used by "test_data" to compose a list of fixture calls.

instructions

Returns an array of the INSTRUCTIONS list, used by "test_data" to compose a list of fixture calls.

Object Methods

data

Returns the raw datastructure of the YAML file.

test_data

Assembles the results from "preconditions", "instructions", and "postconditions" and, using "parse_data", returns a data structure that Test::FITesque::Test can process.

parse_data

Scrubs the arguments to test statements into a format that Test::FITesque::Test can process.
