Welcome to the group for the plumbers who keep the community plumbing from leaking. ;)
Testing frameworks such as SimpleTest and Selenium, automated testing, and general community QA initiatives are all on-topic here.
Manual testing is also totally on-topic.
We have created an integration testing framework for Drupal based on PHPUnit. It simplifies creating and maintaining integration tests for Drupal. It understands Drupal so a lot of tedious tasks are done by it in the background and the developer can concentrate on just testing business logic.Read more
I wanted to share something I published today: http://drupalignite.com.
Basically it's a tool and a set of practices to setup a Drupal environment under a full Continuous Integration cycle using some well-known tools as drush, phing, composer and jenkins for the build phase, phpunit and behat for the testing and features and migrate for keeping everything (structure and data) in a code driven development shape.
I published the introduction, the following chapters will be published in the next months!
You can find the code on github: https://github.com/omissis/drupal-ignite
I've just committed a patch (http://drupal.org/node/1495510) to the core Taxonomy module. The patch includes an addition of a database column. The automated tests fail, seemingly because the database that the tests are being run on doesn't have the extra field: http://qa.drupal.org/pifr/test/373168
Is that what's happening? If not, what's going on? Is there a way to make the tests pass?
I'm writing up a bunch of tests as scenarios in Behat/Mink for an application written in D7 that has a gmap/Google map as its central purpose. I want to automate at least one test of clicking on a map pin to see if a popup window appears.
Unfortunately this map's pins don't have a standard A HREF link which would get detected by "follow" or "press" -- at least that I can tell. The pin markup looks like:Read more
Hi Folks, I'm working in a module to run Unit Tests in Drupal with PHPUnit.
Actually the project is in a Sandbox state and is current development, but I wanna receive some feedback, opinion, suggestions, critics, features request, etc.
If anyone is interested in more data please put in contact with me.
Thanks and Regards
I try to create an automated test for my drupal 7 site to test my rather complex access logic. I am using features, git and drush and a couple of shell scripts for staging. Works great.
My site involves a node access control based on several facts. I wrote a custom module (actually a feature) to create the workflow rules (other workflow module were not fitting my needs)
- workflow_state (custom field)
- workflow history
- global roles
- organic group roles
I wrote a blog post about testing contributed modules' upgrade and update paths:
As I haven't found a lot of information about this on the web, any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd also like to know if any of you do this, and how you go about it.
Some of you may be familiar with the QA Checklist module. (Try a demo.) It provides a list of modules to install and best practices to follow when building and deploying a Drupal site, and it tracks your progress against it. It's kind of a pre-flight checklist, and though somewhat rudimentary, it's helpful—especially for inexperienced site builders.Read more
I make checklist, but i don't confident this list is right,
Load & Performance
check functional on server phpmail, and other functions and apps for server
check version module drupal.org on site.
test developer modules (write test by simple test).
Automated Functional Testing Selenium , Windmill etc
check configure on server (rewrite for module, files private etc), security file permission
check security review, (drupal module)
delete files in “/”
Hi there, I'm using Windows 7, IIS, PHP 5.3.10 nts running with FastCGI, SQL Server 2008 R2 with PDO 2.0 drivers for windows to run Drupal.
I'm suffering a very slow behavior running the Drupal Tests, never ends to run the tests, the others parts of the site works fine.
Any thought about what may is happening ?
We've been working on implementing continuous integration for our projects to improve code quality. In the process we've built two templates which should make it easy to setup CI for new projects and want to share these with the community. Hopefully you'll find it useful!Read more
Hi there Testing group!
I'm happy to announce the release of the Behat integration module which allows developers to write tests for a Drupal site (or module) in "BDD"-style. BDD is a methodology for writing software features "outside in", i.e. using plain language to describe a feature's behavior first and the actual test code second. Find more information on BDD at http://bdd.alexo.it.Read more
Say I have a module A, which has some features which work with module B, but module B is not a dependency.
To test said features, I create a whole new "Test A B" module whose sole purpose is to have module A and module B as a dependency, and run tests against features which require both. "Test A B" module is stored in the "tests" subfolder of module A.
Wondering if that's the best approach, and if you are using any others.
I am developing module which provides integration with another software. I am using different "target" in settings.php to access DB for this third-party application.
Now if I write test, I need to have this target defined in test case too. Right now I am defining it manually via Database::addConnectionInfo in setUp() method, but this is not portable..
Any ideas how to do such type of testing?
Hi there, testing team! :)
Back at DrupalCon Chicago, Dries outlined a strategy for Drupal 8 involving a series of "gates" that would help ensure core code quality in a number of different categories: Documentation, Performance, Accessibility, Usability, and Testing. The purpose of gates is to define essentially a set of "checkboxes" which outline the most important aspects to each category, and does so in a way that is both not overwhelming to core developers (list of hoops to jump through is kept as small as possible) and also creates very little additional burden on the team in question (contains sample links to documentation/resources so developers/reviewers can help themselves).
Since we have already traditionally had requirements around documentation, it made sense to start there. Jennifer Hodgdon and some other folks from the documentation team have put together the Documentation gate, which is available at http://drupal.org/node/1203498. What we need is a similar table for each of the other gate areas. And that's where you come in! :DRead more
Several efforts have been made to create a workable way of PHPUnit testing into drupal development. It goes back several years, but it's still actual. Information about PHPUnit and Drupal is heavily distributed on d.o and other sites. Here's a list (not exhausting) of discussions, projects, etc. Purpose of this list is to have a reference of what has been done, tried, etc before. Please feel free to bring in more...Read more
I'm coming back to Drupal after a brief hiatus, and although I've looked around, I can't seem to find any up to date information about how best to unit test Drupal (I'm using D6 for now, but I haven't found anything for D7 either).
I'm asking about Unit testing, because my [previous experiments with Integration Testing seemed unusably slow], and although there is this [article here on lullabot], it's about 4 years old now, and it seems somewhat out of date.Read more
I want to make sure that everybody in these groups knows about the fantastic simpletest + selenium integration work that ygerasimov has been doing. I just tested out his Selenium module (7.x) and it worked fine for me.
Here's what I did:
- Install Selenium module and start Selenium Server as described in the INSTALL.txt.
- Installed the Selenium Test Example sandbox for sample tests.
The steps involved in taking forward the Selenium test for Drupal.org initiative:
Link to drupal.org issue queue: http://drupal.org/node/991040
- Identifying a groups of people interested in building Selenium test-cases
- Working on Identifying critical tests
- Writing tests
- Working with the infrastructure team to run these tests
If you are interested in building Selenium tests and supporting the same, please add you name and the area of support.
