Introduction

With the introduction of System tests in February 2010, there are also a number of Joomla! specific methods that can be used. These methods are part of the SeleniumJoomlaTestCase class, as defined by the file tests/system/SeleniumJoomlaTestCase.php

These methods exist so that none of the path or login information is coded into the tests. Instead, it comes from the config file located at tests/system/servers/configdef.php See Running_Automated_Tests_for_Version_1.6#Create_a_Selenium_Configuration_File

Available Selenium Test Case Methods

As of this writing, the following methods that belong to the SeleniumJoomlaTestCase class.

  • setUp()
  • doAdminLogin()
  • doAdminLogout()
  • gotoAdmin()
  • gotoSite()
  • doFrontEndLogin()
  • doFrontEndLogout()
  • setTinyText($text)

setUp

  • Loads the configuration variables defined in tests/system/servers/configdef.php and launches the test browser accordingly.
	public function setUp()
	{
		$cfg = new SeleniumConfig();
		$this->cfg = $cfg; // save current configuration
		$this->setBrowser($cfg->browser);
		$this->setBrowserUrl($cfg->host.$cfg->path);
		if(isset($cfg->selhost)) {
			$this->setHost($cfg->selhost);
		}
		echo ".\n".'Starting '.get_class($this).".\n";
	}

doAdminLogin

  • Logs into the administrative side of Joomla!
	function doAdminLogin()
	{
		//$this->setUp();
		echo "Logging in to admin.\n";
		$cfg = new SeleniumConfig();
		$this->open($cfg->path . "administrator/index.php?option=com_login");
		$this->waitForPageToLoad("30000");
		$this->type("mod-login-username", $cfg->username);
		$this->type("mod-login-password", $cfg->password);
		$this->click("link=Log in");
		$this->waitForPageToLoad("30000");
	}

  • Logs out of the administrative side of Joomla!
	function doAdminLogout()
	{
		$this->gotoAdmin();
		echo "Logging out of back end.\n";
		$this->click("link=Logout");
	}

gotoAdmin

  • Navigates to the administrative side of Joomla!
	function gotoAdmin()
	{
		echo "Browsing to admin.\n";
		$cfg = new SeleniumConfig();
		$this->open($cfg->path . "administrator");
	}

gotoSite

  • Navigates to the front end of Joomla!
	function gotoSite()
	{
		echo "Browsing to site.\n";
		$cfg = new SeleniumConfig();
		$this->open($cfg->path);
	}

doFrontEndLogin

  • Logs into the front end of Joomla!
	function doFrontEndLogin()
	{
		$this->gotoSite();
		echo "Logging into front end of site.\n";
		$this->type("modlgn_username", "admin");
		$this->type("modlgn_passwd", "password");
		$this->click("Submit");
		$this->waitForPageToLoad("30000");
	}

	function doFrontEndLogout()
	{
		$this->gotoSite();
		echo "Logging out of front end of site.\n";
		$this->click("Submit");
		$this->waitForPageToLoad("30000");
	}

setTinyText

  • Allows the test to input data
