Installing gems for testing
Remove your .bundle/config if you've already installed Redmine without the test dependencies. Then, run `bundle install`.
Run `rake –tasks test` to see available tests. Run `rake test` to run the entire test suite (except the tests for the Apache perl module Redmine.pm and Capybara tests, see below).
You can run `ruby test/unit/issue_test.rb` for running a single test case and `ruby test/unit/issue_test.rb -n test_create` for running a single test.
Before running tests, you need to configure both development and test databases.
Creating test repositories
Redmine supports a wide array of different version control systems. To test the support, a test repository needs to be created for each of those.
Run `rake –tasks test:scm:setup` for a list of available test-repositories or run `rake test:scm:setup:all` to set up all of them. The repositories are unpacked into redmine_root/tmp/test.
If the test repositories are not present, the tests that need them will be skipped.
Creating a test LDAP database
Redmine supports using LDAP for user authentications. To test LDAP with Redmine, load the LDAP export from test/fixtures/ldap/test-ldap.ldif into a testing LDAP server. Make sure that the LDAP server can be accessed at 127.0.0.1 on port 389.
If your LDAP server is not running on localhost, you can use the REDMINE_TEST_LDAP_SERVER environment variable to specify another host.
Setting up the test LDAP server is beyond the scope of this documentation. The OpenLDAP project provides a simple LDAP implementation that should work good as a test server.
If the LDAP is not available, the tests that need it will be skipped.
Running Redmine.pm tests
(work in progress)
Running the tests for the Redmine.pm perl module needs a bit more setup. You need an Apache server with mod_perl, mod_dav_svn and Redmine.pm configured. See: www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/Repositories_access_control_with_apache_mod_dav_svn_and_mod_perl
You need an empty repository accessible at 127.0.0.1/svn/ecookbook Then, you can run the tests with: `ruby testextraredmine_pmrepository_subversion_test.rb`
If your svn server is not running on localhost, you can use the REDMINE_TEST_DAV_SERVER environment variable to specify another host.
Running Capybara tests
You need to have PhantomJS WebDriver listening on port 4444: `phantomjs –webdriver 4444`
Capybara tests can be run with: `rake test:ui`
