NOTE: This is the TestCases web. You cannot edit any topic named "TestCase..." or "Web..." in this web, you can only create new topics. Any topics you do create that are not checked into subversion may be deleted by anyone, at any time.

TestCases Web

If you are here, you want to test this version of TWiki. This web is held in the TWiki Subversion repository, so:

  1. You must manually ensure that all topics in this web are readable and writable by the apache user
  2. New topics must be manually added to the Subversion repository.
    • Only check in .txt files. You must not check in ,v files. Topic histories will be maintained in Subversion.
  3. If you use TWiki to edit topics (recommended) you must:
    • Fix the META:TOPICINFO of all topics in this web so that the author is TWikiContributor and the version is the SVN keyword $Rev$. The tools/fixtopicmeta script is a handy utility to fix the meta data.
    • Remove all ctrl+M's before checking in.

The integration testcases are an important assistant to TWiki testing. However they should not be regarded as the only required testing; manual testing, by a user interacting with TWiki, is also key, as are unit tests.

Integration testcases are of two kinds; manual, and automatic. Automatic testcases are strongly preferred.

Each integration testcase consists of a single topic, always named TestCaseSomething where Something is descriptive of the testcase. For example, TestCaseAmISane. If Something starts with Auto then the topic is assumed to be an automatic testcases and it is automatically added to the table below with a run link e.g. TestCaseAutoFormatting

All testcase topics should contain a line starting with Description: that describes what the testcase does, for the table below. It's also convention to credit the designer(s) of the testcase, on a line starting Designed by: .

Other topics may be created to provide test fixtures, but all checked-in topics in this web should be regarded as read-only i.e. no test should require the overwriting of any of the checked-in topics. If you need to create topics in order to execute a test, please do so, but delete them after you are finished to avoid any risk of polluting future tests.

Manual testcases simply document a series of steps that have to be performed to execute the test, sometimes with links in to help the process (for an example see TestCaseAmISane).

Automatic testcases are designed for testing TWiki rendering. They can be visited and manually checked just like manual testcases, but also include markers that indicate to the TestFixturePlugin what is expected output versus what TWiki actually produces. See TestFixturePlugin for details, and view TestCaseAutoFormatting raw for a good example. Automatic testcase topics should also contain a link that allows the testcase to be run: [[%SCRIPTURL%/view%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/%WEB%/%TOPIC%?test=compare&debugenableplugins=TestFixturePlugin&skin=pattern][run this test]]

Automatic testcases may be run by clicking on the run link for the testcase in the table below. The testcases are run with no plugins enabled.

Plugins do not ship with test cases in the TestCases web. It is possible to create a test case topic in the TWiki web (and thus ship it with a plugin for manual testing), and include that in an TestCases topic. For example the TestCaseAutoSpreadSheetPlugin topic includes the test cases from TWiki.SpreadSheetPluginTestCases.

HELP A good tip is to right-click each run link and open in a new tab. That way you can run a whole bunch of testcases quickly without having to wait for each to finish loading.
