Integrated

A TestBox package for even better Integration tests in ColdBox!

Master Branch Build Status Development Branch Build Status

Requirements

Requires ColdBox 4.2+ and TestBox 2.3+

Installation

Install the package from ForgeBox:

box install integrated

Important: Add the Integrated lib directory to this.javaSettings in your *tests* directory's Application.cfc.

this.javaSettings = { loadPaths = [ "Integrated/lib" ], reloadOnChange = false };

You might also be interested in integrated-commands, a CommandBox module for scaffolding Integrated tests quickly.

Usage

Change your Integration tests to extend from Integration.BaseSpecs.ColdBoxBaseSpec. (Make sure to call the parent class's beforeAll method.)

component extends="Integrated.BaseSpecs.ColdBoxBaseSpec" {
    function beforeAll() {
        // Make sure to call the parent class's beforeAll() and afterAll() methods.
        super.beforeAll();
    }

    function afterAll() {
        super.afterAll();
    }
}

Start using an easy, fluent API for your integration tests!

function run() {
    describe( "Registering", function() {
        it( "allows a new user to register for the site", function() {
            this.visitEvent('register.new')
                .type('Eric', 'name')
                .type('mYAw$someP2ssw0rd!', 'password')
                .press('Register')
                .seeTitleIs('Home')
                .seeOnPage('Welcome, Eric!');
        });
    });
}

You can see all the different methods you can call in the API docs.

You can add automatic database transactions by adding one line to the top of your spec:

component extends="Integrated.BaseSpecs.ColdBoxBaseSpec" {

    this.useDatabaseTransactions = true;

    function run() {
        describe( "Registering", function() {
            it( "allows a new user to register for the site", function() {
                this.visitEvent('register.new')
                    .type('Eric', 'name')
                    .type('mYAw$someP2ssw0rd!', 'password')
                    .press('Register')
                    .seeTitleIs('Home')
                    .seeOnPage('Welcome, Eric!');
            });
        });
    }
}

Easily add database transactions around your tests by adding this one property to your test:

this.useDatabaseTransactions = true;

By default, we clear out the session scope on each request. If you want to persist the session scope across requests, simply add this.persistSessionScope = true; to the top of your spec. Note: this will happen for all tests in the file.

Creating Framework-specific BaseSpecs

To create your own framework specific BaseSpec, first extend the Integrated.BaseSpecs.AbstractBaseSpec component.

component extends="Integrated.BaseSpecs.AbstractBaseSpec" {
    function beforeAll() {
    // IMPORTANT!  Don't forget to call `beforeAll()` and `afterAll()`!
        super.beforeAll(
            // your setup here
        );
    }

    function afterAll() {
        super.afterAll();
    }
}

The beforeAll method takes four separate engines that drive Integrated:

/**
* Sets up the needed dependancies for Integrated.
*
* @requestEngine Integrated.Engines.Request.Contracts.RequestEngine
* @frameworkEngine Integrated.Engines.Assertion.Contracts.FrameworkAssertionEngine
* @domEngine Integrated.Engines.Assertion.Contracts.DOMAssertionEngine
* @interactionEngine Integrated.Engines.Interaction.Contracts.InteractionEngine
*
* @return Integrated.BaseSpecs.AbstractBaseSpec
*/
public AbstractBaseSpec function beforeAll(
    required RequestEngine requestEngine,
    required FrameworkAssertionEngine frameworkEngine,
    required DOMAssertionEngine domEngine,
    required InteractionEngine interactionEngine
);

In your base spec, you can return any combination of these four engines to power Integrated. For instance, you may wish to specify a different RequestEngine and FrameworkAssertionEngine for your new base spec but use JSoup for the DOMAssertionEngine and the InteractionEngine. Or, you could use Selenium based engines for every one of the required engines. It's up to you.

You can look at Integrated.BaseSpecs.ColdBoxBaseSpec for how this is done for ColdBox.

Each engine has an Interface that new engines must conform to as well as an abstract spec they should pass.

// Integrated.Engines.Request.MyAwesomeRequestEngine
component implements="Integrated.Engines.Request.Contracts.RequestEngine" {
    // your implementation here
}
component extends="tests.specs.unit.Engines.Request.Contracts.RequestEngineTest" {

    function getCUT() {
        return new Integrated.Engines.Request.MyAwesomeRequestEngine();
    }

}

Note: each engine's abstract spec may be slightly different in how they are set up. Take a look at the specs to see the details.

Credits

This package is heavily inspired by Jeffrey Way's Integrated package for Laravel. I learned about it at Laracasts, which I consider my best programming resource regardless of the fact that I have never deployed a line of PHP code.
