Running Tests

Tip, idea v4.2.0-beta5 : gangaRunTests test runner is distributed in GangaTest/sbin package

Tip, idea version 4.2.10 : gangaRunTests updated to allow running multiple local unittests (see below: usage case


I. Run Ganga systems tests based on a selection pattern


 Run the system tests matching the SELECTION_PATTERN
 System tests are located in test/ directory of each Ganga top level package (Ganga,GangaLHCb,GangaAtlas)
 This usage mode is used by ganga release tools

 SELECTION_PATTERN: the pattern used to select the tests to be run ( e.g: Ganga.test.* )

                ganga top dir (if missing the path is set relative to the script)

                ganga tests top dir where the systems tests are loaded from
                 By default it is set to ganga_release_top_dir

                colon separated list of Ganga configuration files used to run the tests.
                The list should contain just the name for configuration files and not to full path to them

                 prefix directory where the reports is saved

                unique name for this testing session.
                The reports are actually saved in <reports_dir>/<name>

-- OR --

II. Run individual test cases

        gangaRunTests [--config=GANGA_CONFIG] --unittest FILE...

 Run individual test(s) defined in FILEs  (these mode should be used while developing new test-cases)
 Multiple files or directories containing tests can be specified.
 Test stdout is saved in the test directory

                Ganga configuration file used to run the specified test(s)

         -u, --unittest, --test
                activates loading and running of individual unit tests defined in FILEs

Usage example:

1. Run system tests from $GANGA_TOP_DIR/python/Ganga/test, using local repository configuration and saving the reports in $HOME/myTests/MyReport/:

gangaRunTests --reports_dir=~/myTests --report_name=MyReport --config=local.ini 'Ganga.test.*'


2. Run all tests located in my mytests development directory using ganga.ini configuration:

gangaRunTests --unittest --config=ganga.ini mytests/

The Ganga test-runner has an external dependency on PYTF testing tool.

Generating HTML reports for Ganga system tests

Along with the test-runner, there is a supplementary tool (generateHTMLReports) that may be used to generate HTML reports based on the raw XML test reports generated by gangaRunTests This tool is used by the release tools to generate statistics reports for all Ganga system tests

./generateHTMLReports --help
summarize_reports [options] files
    files: XML raw reports as generated by gangaTestRunner
        -d, --dest-dir : destination directory for summary HTML pages
