JUnit and Data Files [message #92758] Wed, 21 February 2007 21:15 Go to next message

I'm pretty new with TPTP and am working on some JUnit test cases for
Java code that operates on data files. The data files used for the test
have been added to my project containing the test. I figured it would be
a simple matter to copy these files to the working directory used for
the test suite and work on them, however, I can't find any way to get
the location of my project from the test case. It seems like properties
on the TextExecutionService might contain this information, however, I
don't see how to find an instance of one.

Any advice? I have my test working with a hard-coded path for now, but
I'd like to fix that.

Thanks,
Paul Fife

Hi Paul:

You can get it by System.getProperty("user.dir");. The files in your
classpath are deployed to the "ROOTDIR + USR_NAME". You can define these
two variables in the test suite's artifact.

The help doc is
http://help.eclipse.org/help32/topic/org.eclipse.hyades.test .doc.user/concepts/cjunitintro.htm

Hope it can help you.

Thanks for the reply Cindy.

I'm not sure this helped me. I am not trying to locate the deployment
folder, I am trying to locate the project folder containing the test suite.

I am trying to move data files (note class files) to the deployment
folder from my project folder. These files are loaded by the code being
tested and can't be part of the class path since some of them are JAR
files containing classes. I am manually copying them over now using a
hard-coded path to my project, but this definitely isn't a good way to
be doing it. I'm hoping to find a way to either
- get them automatically deployed but not be in the class path, or
- to be able to discover the project folder path programatically at
runtime so I can manually copy the files to the deployment.

Thanks for any advice,
Paul Fife

Hi Paul:

You can get the directory of remote deployment for your_plugin
String deployDir = System.getProperty("user.dir")+
System.getProperty("file.separator")+your_plugin_name.
Only files/folders/jars defined in classpath can be automatically deployed.

Thanks
Cindy

Hi Paul,
Have a look at the Deployment ground rules document in the TPTP Help
(Help >> Help Contents >> Testing applications >> Reference >> Deployment
ground rules). For files to be deployed with a test, they must be on the
classpath.

The TextExecutionService is specific to using the Automatable Services
Framework (ASF) for test execution. IF you using the TPTP UI for test
execution, the TextExecutionService is not used.
