How To Add a JUnit Project To the WTP Builds


  1. put in cvs
    directory should be created first, creating a folder in the 'tests' directory of the component. Then use eclipse wizard to 'share', but don't use default name (that would create a top level project directory) but instead use the 'browse' function to put in the folder created.
  2. add to appropriate .map file (using the project name, and full cvs name).
    it must be added "by hand" to a map file before it can be released with release tool.
  3. add the project to a features xml file.
    NOTE: For test plugins, the test plugin should NOT be packed (or jarred up) (there are some ant tasks that use file functions). And, this means to omit the unpack attribute in the feature.xml file.
  4. (optional) send note to webmaster to have project and its location added to the modules file in CVS, if desired

PROJECT test.xml file

  1. copy a test.xml file from another project, or use this example from the sse.core test suite and edit the 3 or 4 things that are project specific:
    • plugin name
    • main classname that runs all the tests
    • type type of test, either
      • target="core-test" (if there is no UI required), or
      • target="ui-test" (if there is UI required).
  2. add the test.xml file (using check box in properties editor) to the file so it'll be included in the "bin" build.

test.xml is a reserved file name!

Note the significance of the the 'test.xml' file name. This is like a "reserved word" convention. Any plugin that has a 'test.xml' file in the root of the plugin is assumed to mean it is a JUnit test plugin to be ran in our WTP builds. In fact, for future use, assume any "test*.xml" file will have significance, when in the root of the bundle. Eventually, we may have "test-bvt.xml", "test-fvt.xml", or similar, to mean different types of tests, to run at different times.
