how to start unit test inside the ide since RAP M4 [message #33375] Thu, 14 June 2007 14:05 Go to next message

Hi!
I changed the target to the M4 target.
The launch configuration for my application works fine but the launch
configurations for my unit tests did not work anymore. I run the tests as a
"junit plug-in test" and I' ve choosen the headless application. The test
plugin and the plugins I want test did not have a dependency to
org.eclipse.ui.ide but this plugin is needed to run the tests. So I tried to
copy this plugin to my target. Then I realized that this plugin has a
dependency to the rcp plugins, that are not in the target.

How does the rap team launch their test plugins from inside the ide?

Greetings, Ben

Hi Benedikt,

that's the reason why we don't wanted to build a target. But with the
namespace switch in M4, eclipse is too confused with all the extension
points and packages. So we decided to build a target for you. Setting a
per-project target would help us here (see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=159072) but this is not an
easy task for the PDE guys.

There are several approaches how to do this stuff:
a) between developing and testing, change the target (it's a possibility
but i know: no way ;) )
b) import all the needed plugins of RAP to your workspace and switch the
target back to RCP/SDK or whatever your tests need.
Cause of your plugin tests rely on org.eclipse.ui.ide (which has a
dependency to org.eclipse.ui.workbench and org.eclipse.ui) - coping all
of them to your target would case much trouble (as I said, that's the
reason why we build a target).
The drawback is that you may have problems when debugging your
application. I said "may" because the problems of eclipse with it's
namespace trouble is not reproduceable.
At the moment, it isn't the cleanest solution but the only way to work
with it. Maybe we/someone will come up with an better approach to make
it easier for all of us.
c) use plain junit tests ;)

This is just my point of view. Maybe there are better solutions for this
problem - tell me :)


Cheers
Benny

The problem is, that my plugin test did not depend on org.eclipse.ui.ide nor
on a plugin that depends on it. If you want I can provide a screenshot of
the plugin dependency tree. I don't know where the dependency is from, but I
think it comes from the pde junit runner.

I think I am using plain junit tests :-)

Ben

Hi Benjamin, any news on this topic?

I just wrote a JUnit test for my RAP application and wanted to run it.
No way? I can't believe it!

I'm using OSGi APIs, so I must run the tests in OSGi.

Frank.

Ah, I found it while searching deeper in the newsgroup. You answered it
in the thread "RAP JUnit plugin in M3" from April 2008.

Hi Frank,

if you have the RAP 1.1 SDK installed there should be a Run As > RAP
JUnit Test command in the context menu.

See the New & Noteforthy for RAP 1.1 for details on this feature:
http://www.eclipse.org/rap/noteworthy/news_11.php#Tooling

Hope this helps,
Elias.

Thank! I'm now trying to run the RAP tests from the command line for the
build. How would I do that?

Frank.

Hi Frank,

to be honest I've no idea. AFAIK in our build (i.e. the RAP build) we
just run plain junit tests.

Maybe somebody else on the team does want to answer this?

Regards,
Elias.

Well, it's not as straight-forward as I thought. We are working on this
now already for the second day.

What we do is that we use the Ant runner to run the tests inside RAP, it
works with an Ant script that just outputs "Hello, world.". But the
tests that use our own core plug-ins are not activated properly...

Frank.

Hi,

unfortunately RAP JUnit supports running tests from the IDE only at the
moment. I didn't find the time to create an ANT task for running RAP
JUnit tests yet. Sorry, but RAP tooling is almost completly created
within the RAP-developer's spare time...



Ciao
Frank

Hi Frank,

have you made any progress on automatically running your junit tests? I
(and maybe others) would be really interested in if you found a way to
get it work.

Regards,
Stefan.
