General Info

Topic: Automated Release Testing
Lead(s): Unknown User (bwolfe)
Date: May 31st - June 12th 2011
Kickoff Meeting: 10am ET, Monday May 31st (find your timezone)

Group Chat

via IRC on the #openmrs-sprint channel on freenode.

Use this channel for ALL debugging and random questions having to do with the sprint. Please avoid direct messaging to personal contacts. If you have a question, someone else probably does too, and our geographically distributed community benefits from public group discussion.


The goal of this sprint is to create a suite of unit tests that test web layer functionality.

Initial testing should focus on automating the Rudimentary Testing within Testing Releases

All code should be worked on in this branch:

1 minute overview

The goal of the release testing is to create a set of "stories" about what we want to test.  Example story.

There is then a java class that works uses that story template to execute the test.  Example java and Example step reading the template.

Webdriver, jetty, and selenium are used behind the scenes to script and execute the actual steps/test

Running the tests

First give maven more memory to work with:
export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx1024m -Xms256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m"

To run all tests:mvn clean integration-test -DskipTests -P integration-test
To run tests against a pre-defined db (and specific tests):mvn clean integration-test -DskipTests -P smoke-test -Dtest=CreateAnEncounter

    Is the date above correct?

      Which date are you referring to?  Theres about 10 different ones if you include links. 

      This sprint is starting on a Tuesday due to the US holiday that will occupy most developers on Monday the 30th.

        Sorry, still early here. I was thinking that this was a 2-week sprint (at least the main sprint page says so).

        1. Unknown User (bwolfe)

          Ah yes, that date was wrong.  I've updated the page to show that it is a two week sprint, thanks!
