This repository provides a general guideline for creating tests for an oCIS extension. The tests can be written in various levels from unit, integration, and end-to-end. It is not essential to write tests on all these levels as it can be redundant in some cases. This repository provides a reference for all levels of tests.

Unit tests

Unit tests generally live inside *_test.go files in the /pkg directory. One such example in this extension is in /pkg/service/v0/service_test.go. Similarly the unit test for the protobuf generated code can also be written just like in /pkg/proto/hello.pb_test.go.

Integration tests

There are mainly 2 types of integration tests, namely HTTP tests, and GRPC tests. These tests mostly live in /pkg/proto directory where all the protobuf definitions are specified. The examples for the HTTP integration tests are in /pkg/proto/hello.pb.web_test.go whereas the GRPC tests are in /pkg/proto/hello.pb.micro_test.go.

End-to-End tests

For extensions with an UI, we can also write end-to-end tests using the Nightwatch test framework. These tests live in /ui/tests directory. We can reuse already existing Gherkin steps from the ownCloud Web tests here.

Running the tests

Unit and integration tests

The unit and integration tests are run using the simple go test command. If you wish to run all the tests with the coverage you can just use make command.

make test

You can also run a specific file with the go test command

go test <path to package or file>

End-to-End tests

Running end-to-end tests is a bit more complicated than unit and integration tests. First of all we will need a complete oCIS setup with the Hello extension running. Please refer to foo

Then we need to set up the test infrastructure following the instructions form here

Now we can run the tests. The tests will take several configuration variables which can be found here. Without configuration, most of the defaults will work. We just need make sure to set these values through env variable.

export WEB_PATH=<path to ownCloud Web directory>
export OCIS_SKELETON_DIR=<path to the skeleton directory>
export WEB_UI_CONFIG=<path to the config.json file used by web>

While running oCIS we should always use a configuration file for ownCloud Web because our tests will read this file and sometimes even change it which cannot be done if you use environment variables or the default values.

With all this in place we can just run the tests with a simple make command. First go to the Hello repository

cd <path to hello>

Then run

make test-acceptance-webui

To run just one feature you can run

make test-acceptance-webui <path-to-feature file>:<line-number>
