Install Git (most developers will already have this!)
Git clone OpenCart (you cannot download the ZIP as this will not include the tests).
Install OpenCart as normal
Go to your command line (Windows > Run > Cmd), Shell, or Git Bash
Change directory to /tests/phpunit/ folder
Type in the command line: composer update (this will create you a vendor folder and download all dependencies)
Composer will now pull in all of the required externals/dependencies
run: vendor\bin\phpunit –bootstrap bootstrap.php opencart\admin to run tests in admin folder
run: vendor\bin\phpunit –bootstrap bootstrap.php opencart\catalog to run tests in catalog folder
run: vendor\bin\phpunit –bootstrap bootstrap.php opencart\system to run tests in system folder
Running Acceptance (Functional) Tests with Selenium requires a standalone selenium server on your machine.
The server can be downloaded from here. Before starting your Selenium Tests
you have to run the standalone server: java -jar selenium-server-standalone-2.32.0.jar. Writing Selenium Tests requires you to extend the OpenCartSeleniumTest class.
run: vendor\bin\phpunit –bootstrap bootstrap.php selenium\catalog to run tests in system folder
The tests are still under development, there is hundreds of them to do.
The tests will drop and recreate tables in database specified in config.php and admin/config.php
You will also see a build.xml file inside the project root which you can use to configure a Jenkins build.
We need you
If you understand testing, then you know how important it is to any project. If you have a suggestion then we would really like to hear it!
