Concept to handle minimal and maximal tests in a maven project

Thursday, 26. November 2009 1 comment

In real world applications we have all too often external dependencies in test cases. Sometimes theses third party are not always available (i.e. remote webservices).

For continuous integration I want check a minimal set of tests but for my local development i want check a maximal set of tests. I want run my tests on command line (via maven) and in eclipse (via testng-plugin).

Here is my idea to do that …

My project super pom defines 2 profiles:

  • test-min
    1. active by default
    2. exclude testng groups (online-tests, thirdparty-tests,…)
  • test-max
    1. run a defined testng suite
    2. the suite defines a maximal set of test (all testng groups)
<profiles>
  <profile>
    <id>test-min</id>
    <activation>
      <activeByDefault>true</activeByDefault>
    </activation>
    <build>
      <plugins>
        <plugin>
          <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
          <inherited>true</inherited>
          <configuration>
            <excludedGroups>${excludedTestGroups}</excludedGroups>
          </configuration>
        </plugin>
      </plugins>
    </build>
  </profile>
  <profile>
    <id>test-max</id>
    <build>
      <plugins>
        <plugin>
          <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
          <inherited>true</inherited>
          <configuration>
            <suiteXmlFiles>
              ${basedir}/src/test/resources/Testsuite.xml
            </suiteXmlFiles>
          </configuration>
        </plugin>
      </plugins>
    </build>
  </profile>
</profiles>
<properties>
  <excludedTestGroups>online,integration,thirdparty</excludedTestGroups>
</properties>

Each subproject must define a testng src/test/resources/Testsuite.xml:

<!DOCTYPE suite SYSTEM "http://testng.org/testng-1.0.dtd">
<suite name="TestSuite for Foobar">
  <test name="Online Tests">
    <packages>
      <package name="de.foobar.*" />
    </packages>
    <groups>
      <run>
        <include name="online" />
      </run>
    </groups>
  </test>
  <test name="Integration Tests">
    <packages>
      <package name="de.foobar.*" />
    </packages>
    <groups>
      <run>
        <include name="integration" />
      </run>
    </groups>
  </test>
  <test name="Thirdparty Tests">
    <packages>
      <package name="de.foobar.*" />
    </packages>
    <groups>
      <run>
        <include name="thirdparty" />
      </run>
    </groups>
  </test>
  <!-- Each project can define MORE groups: i.e. "interactive" -->
  <test name="Other Tests">
    <packages>
      <package name="de.foobar.*" />
    </packages>
    <groups>
      <run>
        <exclude name="online" />
        <exclude name="integration" />
        <exclude name="thirdparty" />
        <!-- Each project can define MORE groups: i.e. "interactive" -->
      </run>
    </groups>
  </test>
</suite>

If the sub project defines more exclude groups (i.e. a additional “interactive” group) then the pom must overwrite the excludedTestGroups property:

<properties>
  <excludedTestGroups>online,integration,thirdparty,interactive</excludedTestGroups>
</properties>

To check the correct configuration of the two profiles we can use help:effective-pom:

mvn -Ptest-min help:effective-pom | less

<plugin>
  <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
  <configuration>
    <excludedGroups>online,integration,thirdparty,interactive</excludedGroups>
  </configuration>
</plugin>

mvn -Ptest-max help:effective-pom | less

<plugin>
  <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
  <configuration>
    <suiteXmlFiles>
      <suiteXmlFile>d:\foobar\src/test/resources/Testsuite.xml</suiteXmlFile>
    </suiteXmlFiles>
  </configuration>
</plugin>

Now I can run min/max tests for each project which depend on the above super-pom. The test-min is the default profile and would be used on the continuous integration system (i.e. TeamCity).

Try it :)

Show TeamCity Buildstatus in Maven Projectsite

Wednesday, 20. August 2008 Comments off

Today i will show you a little hack for TeamCity and Maven. At the end you will be able to show the last (live!) buildstatus of your artifact on the generate project-site.

Lets define a new menu-item “status” in our project-site-descriptor (src/site/site.xml):

 ...
  <menu name="Overview" inherit="top">
  <item name="Introduction" href="index.html" />
  <item name="Status" href="status.html" />
  </menu>
 ...

Hint: you can do this in your parent-project, so all subproject will inherit this menu.

Now we must define the status.xml (src/site/xdoc/status.xml):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<document>
  <properties>
    <title>Buildstatus</title>
  </properties>
  <body>
    <section name="Status">
      <div id="statuswidget"/>
    </section>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <![CDATA[
      //
      // url to the team-city-server
      // define HOST, PORT and BUILDID
      //
      var url = 'http://HOST:PORT/externalStatus.html'
               + '?buildTypeId=BUILDID'
               + unescape( '%26' )   // "hide" amp
               + 'withCss=true';
      var container = document.getElementById('statuswidget');
      var iframe = document.createElement('iframe');
      iframe.style.width  = '100%';
      iframe.style.height = '500px';
      iframe.style.border = 'none';
      container.appendChild(iframe);
      iframe.doc = null;
      if(iframe.contentDocument)
        iframe.doc = iframe.contentDocument;
      else if(iframe.contentWindow)
        iframe.doc = iframe.contentWindow.document;
      else if(iframe.document)
        iframe.doc = iframe.document;
      iframe.doc.open();
      iframe.doc.close();
      iframe.doc.location.href=url;
    ]]>
    </script>
  </body>
</document>

Insert HOST and PORT. The BUILDID is the number of the build-configuration:

Hint: The width of the iframe should be 100% but you can customize the height – so if you later click on the status-element you can show teamcity directly in you projectsite … cool :D

Activate the status-widget for your build-configuration:

Build the site:

mvn clean site-deploy

Now you have a new menu-item, click and you will see the TeamCity status for your artifact.

The implementation details …

The “normal” way to display the build-status (see TeamCity documentation) is shown here:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<path_to_server>/externalStatus.html?js=1&amp;amp;buildTypeId=BUILDID">
</script>

But it’s not possible to insert this code in maven’s xdoc-format (there is no javascript-tag allowed!).
So i found a solution to insert the teamcity-url into a dynamic created iframe. The second trick is to encode the “&” in the url (unescape(‘%26′)).

Try it!
