Basics of Writing Automated Tests in Arjuna

Tests are Test Functions

Writing a basic test in Arjuna is very easy. Following is a simple test skeleton:

Basic Usage of @test Decorator

from arjuna import *

def check_test_name(request):
  1. Create a test module in <Project Root Directory>/test/pkg. The module name should start with the prefix check_

  2. In the python test module file, import all names from Arjuna: from arjuna import *. Ofcourse, as you become more aware of Arjuna’s TPI (tester programming interface), you can do selective imports using Python.

  3. Create a test. In Arjuna, a test is a function marked with @test decorator. It must start with the prefix check_. It should take one mandatory argument: request.

  4. The contents of the test function depend on the test that you want to write.

Running a Specific Test Function

pytest -p arjuna --project path/to-proj_name --itest check_test_name

pytest determines root directory in various ways. If you are facing difficulties with test discovery, try the following: * If your IDE provisions it, set the current working directory to test project root directory. * Cd into the project root * Add these to command line: –project . -c pytest.ini
