trait MultipleFixtureFeatureSpec extends FixtureFeatureSpec with ConfigMapFixture

A sister trait to org.scalatest.FeatureSpec that can pass multiple types of fixture objects into its tests.

This trait behaves similarly to trait org.scalatest.FeatureSpec, except that tests may take a fixture object, and unlike a FixtureFeatureSpec, different tests may take different types of fixtures. This trait extends FixtureFeatureSpec and mixes in ConfigMapFixture, which defines the Fixture type to be the configMap's type (Map[String, Any]) and defines the withFixture method to simply pass the configMap to the test function. To write tests that take fixtures of types other than Fixture (i.e., Map[String, Any]), you can define implicit conversions from a function of type (<the fixture type>) => Unit to a function of type (FixtureParam) => Unit. Each implicit conversion method serves as the with-fixture method for that type.

Subclasses of this trait must, therefore, do two things differently from a plain old org.scalatest.FeatureSpec:

Here's an example that has two fixture types, String and List[Int]:

import org.scalatest.fixture.MultipleFixtureFeatureSpec

class MyFeatureSpec extends MultipleFixtureFeatureSpec {

  // The "with-fixture" method for tests that take a String fixture
  implicit def withStringFixture(testFun: String => Unit): FixtureParam => Unit =
    configMap => testFun("howdy")

  // The "with-fixture" method for tests that take a List[Int] fixture
  implicit def withListFixture(testFun: List[Int] => Unit): FixtureParam => Unit =
    configMap => testFun(List(configMap.size))

  // A test that takes a String fixture
  scenario("takes a string fixture") { (s: String) =>
    assert(s === "howdy")
  }

  // A test that takes a List[Int] fixture
  scenario("takes a list fixture") { (list: List[Int]) =>
    assert(list.size === 1)
  }

  // A test that takes no fixture
  scenario("takes no fixture") { () =>
    assert(1 === 1)
  }
}

The first method in this class, withStringFixture, is the implicit conversion function for tests that take a fixture of type String. In this contrived example, the hard-coded string "howdy" is passed into the test:

implicit def withStringFixture(testFun: String => Unit): FixtureParam => Unit =
  configMap => testFun("howdy")

Although the string fixture doesn't need anything from the config map, you still need the configMap => at the beginning of the result function to get the expression to type check.

The next method in this class, withListFixture, is the implicit conversion function for tests that take a fixture of type List[Int]. In this contrived example, a List[Int] that contains one element, the size of the configMap, is passed to the test function.

Following the implicit conversion methods are the test declarations. One test is written to take the String fixture:

scenario("takes a string fixture") { (s: String) =>
  assert(s === "howdy")
}

What happens at compile time is that because the Fixture type is Map[String, Any], the test method should be passed a function from type (Map[String, Any]) => Unit, or using the type alias, (FixtureParam) => Unit. Passing a function of type String => Unit as is attempted here is a type error. Thus the compiler will look around for an implicit conversion that will fix the type error, and will find the withStringFixture method. Because this is the only implicit conversion that fixes the type error, it will apply it, effectively generating this code:

// after the implicit withStringFixture method is applied by the compiler
scenario("takes a string fixture") {
  withStringFixture { (s: String) =>
    assert(s === "howdy")
  }
}

After passing the (String) => Unit function to withStringFixture, the result will be of type (FixtureParam) => Unit, which the test method expects.

The next test is written to take the List[Int] fixture:

scenario("takes a list fixture") { (list: List[Int]) =>
  assert(list.size === 1)
}

The compiler will apply the withListFixture implicit conversion in this case, effectively generating the following code:

scenario("takes a list fixture") {
  withListFixture { (list: List[Int]) =>
    assert(list.size === 1)
  }
}

Note that in a FixtureFeatureSpec, you need to specify the type of the fixture explicitly so the compiler knows the type to convert from. So you must, for example, write:

scenario("takes a list fixture") { (list: List[Int]) =>
  assert(list.size === 1)
}

The following attempt will fail to compile:

// won't compile, because list is inferred to be of type FixtureParam
scenario("takes a list fixture") { list =>
  assert(list.size === 1)
}

  14. implicit def convertToEqualizer (left: Any): Equalizer

    Implicit conversion from Any to Equalizer, used to enable assertions with === comparisons.

    Implicit conversion from Any to Equalizer, used to enable assertions with === comparisons.

    For more information on this mechanism, see the documentation for Equalizer.

    Because trait Suite mixes in Assertions, this implicit conversion will always be available by default in ScalaTest Suites. This is the only implicit conversion that is in scope by default in every ScalaTest Suite. Other implicit conversions offered by ScalaTest, such as those that support the matchers DSL or invokePrivate, must be explicitly invited into your test code, either by mixing in a trait or importing the members of its companion object. The reason ScalaTest requires you to invite in implicit conversions (with the exception of the implicit conversion for === operator) is because if one of ScalaTest's implicit conversions clashes with an implicit conversion used in the code you are trying to test, your program won't compile. Thus there is a chance that if you are ever trying to use a library or test some code that also offers an implicit conversion involving a === operator, you could run into the problem of a compiler error due to an ambiguous implicit conversion. If that happens, you can turn off the implicit conversion offered by this convertToEqualizer method simply by overriding the method in your Suite subclass, but not marking it as implicit:

    // In your Suite subclass
    override def convertToEqualizer(left: Any) = new Equalizer(left)

  17. def execute (testName: String = null, configMap: Map[String, Any] = Map(), color: Boolean = true, durations: Boolean = false, shortStacks: Boolean = false, fullStacks: Boolean = false, stats: Boolean = false): Unit

    Executes one or more tests in this Suite, printing results to the standard output.

    Executes one or more tests in this Suite, printing results to the standard output.

    This method invokes run on itself, passing in values that can be configured via the parameters to this method, all of which have default values. This behavior is convenient when working with ScalaTest in the Scala interpreter. Here's a summary of this method's parameters and how you can use them:

    The testName parameter

    If you leave testName at its default value (of null), this method will pass None to the testName parameter of run, and as a result all the tests in this suite will be executed. If you specify a testName, this method will pass Some(testName) to run, and only that test will be run. Thus to run all tests in a suite from the Scala interpreter, you can write:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute()
    

    To run just the test named "my favorite test" in a suite from the Scala interpreter, you would write:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute("my favorite test")
    

    Or:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(testName = "my favorite test")
    

    The configMap parameter

    If you provide a value for the configMap parameter, this method will pass it to run. If not, the default value of an empty Map will be passed. For more information on how to use a config map to configure your test suites, see the config map section in the main documentation for this trait. Here's an example in which you configure a run with the name of an input file:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(configMap = Map("inputFileName" -> "in.txt")
    

    The color parameter

    If you leave the color parameter unspecified, this method will configure the reporter it passes to run to print to the standard output in color (via ansi escape characters). If you don't want color output, specify false for color, like this:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(color = false)
    

    The durations parameter

    If you leave the durations parameter unspecified, this method will configure the reporter it passes to run to not print durations for tests and suites to the standard output. If you want durations printed, specify true for durations, like this:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(durations = true)
    

    The shortStacks and fullStacks parameters

    If you leave both the shortStacks and fullStacks parameters unspecified, this method will configure the reporter it passes to run to not print stack traces for failed tests if it has a stack depth that identifies the offending line of test code. If you prefer a short stack trace (10 to 15 stack frames) to be printed with any test failure, specify true for shortStacks:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(shortStacks = true)
    

    For full stack traces, set fullStacks to true:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(fullStacks = true)
    

    If you specify true for both shortStacks and fullStacks, you'll get full stack traces.

    The stats parameter

    If you leave the stats parameter unspecified, this method will not fire RunStarting and either RunCompleted or RunAborted events to the reporter it passes to run. If you specify true for stats, this method will fire the run events to the reporter, and the reporter will print the expected test count before the run, and various statistics after, including the number of suites completed and number of tests that succeeded, failed, were ignored or marked pending. Here's how you get the stats:

    scala> (new MySuite).execute(stats = true)
    

    To summarize, this method will pass to run:

    • testName - None if this method's testName parameter is left at its default value of null, else Some(testName).
    • reporter - a reporter that prints to the standard output
    • stopper - a Stopper whose apply method always returns false
    • filter - a Filter constructed with None for tagsToInclude and Set() for tagsToExclude
    • configMap - the configMap passed to this method
    • distributor - None
    • tracker - a new Tracker

    Note: In ScalaTest, the terms "execute" and "run" basically mean the same thing and can be used interchangably. One reason this method isn't named run is because junit.framework.TestCase declares a run method that takes no arguments but returns a junit.framework.TestResult. That run method would not overload with this method if it were named run, because it would have the same parameters but a different return type than the one defined in TestCase. To facilitate integration with JUnit 3, therefore, this "run" method is named execute. In particular, this allows trait org.scalatest.junit.JUnit3Suite to extend both org.scalatest.Suite and junit.framework.TestCase, which enables the creating of classes that can be run with either ScalaTest or JUnit 3, as is done with org.scalatest.junit.JUnit3Suite. The other reason this method isn't named run is that it takes advantage of default arguments, and you can't mix overloaded methods and default arguments in Scala. (If named run, this method would have the same name but different arguments than the main run method that takes seven arguments. Thus it would overload and couldn't be used with default argument values.)

  37. def pending : PendingNothing

    Throws TestPendingException to indicate a test is pending.

    Throws TestPendingException to indicate a test is pending.

    A pending test is one that has been given a name but is not yet implemented. The purpose of pending tests is to facilitate a style of testing in which documentation of behavior is sketched out before tests are written to verify that behavior (and often, the before the behavior of the system being tested is itself implemented). Such sketches form a kind of specification of what tests and functionality to implement later.

    To support this style of testing, a test can be given a name that specifies one bit of behavior required by the system being tested. The test can also include some code that sends more information about the behavior to the reporter when the tests run. At the end of the test, it can call method pending, which will cause it to complete abruptly with TestPendingException. Because tests in ScalaTest can be designated as pending with TestPendingException, both the test name and any information sent to the reporter when running the test can appear in the report of a test run. (In other words, the code of a pending test is executed just like any other test.) However, because the test completes abruptly with TestPendingException, the test will be reported as pending, to indicate the actual test, and possibly the functionality it is intended to test, has not yet been implemented.

    Note: This method always completes abruptly with a TestPendingException. Thus it always has a side effect. Methods with side effects are usually invoked with parentheses, as in pending(). This method is defined as a parameterless method, in flagrant contradiction to recommended Scala style, because it forms a kind of DSL for pending tests. It enables tests in suites such as FunSuite or Spec to be denoted by placing "(pending)" after the test name, as in:

    test("that style rules are not laws") (pending)
    

    Readers of the code see "pending" in parentheses, which looks like a little note attached to the test name to indicate it is pending. Whereas "(pending()) looks more like a method call, "(pending)" lets readers stay at a higher level, forgetting how it is implemented and just focusing on the intent of the programmer who wrote the code.

  38. def pendingUntilFixed (f: ⇒ Unit): Unit

    Execute the passed block of code, and if it completes abruptly, throw TestPendingException, else throw TestFailedException.

    Execute the passed block of code, and if it completes abruptly, throw TestPendingException, else throw TestFailedException.

    This method can be used to temporarily change a failing test into a pending test in such a way that it will automatically turn back into a failing test once the problem originally causing the test to fail has been fixed. At that point, you need only remove the pendingUntilFixed call. In other words, a pendingUntilFixed surrounding a block of code that isn't broken is treated as a test failure. The motivation for this behavior is to encourage people to remove pendingUntilFixed calls when there are no longer needed.

    This method facilitates a style of testing in which tests are written before the code they test. Sometimes you may encounter a test failure that requires more functionality than you want to tackle without writing more tests. In this case you can mark the bit of test code causing the failure with pendingUntilFixed. You can then write more tests and functionality that eventually will get your production code to a point where the original test won't fail anymore. At this point the code block marked with pendingUntilFixed will no longer throw an exception (because the problem has been fixed). This will in turn cause pendingUntilFixed to throw TestFailedException with a detail message explaining you need to go back and remove the pendingUntilFixed call as the problem orginally causing your test code to fail has been fixed.

  39. def run (testName: Option[String], reporter: Reporter, stopper: Stopper, filter: Filter, configMap: Map[String, Any], distributor: Option[Distributor], tracker: Tracker): Unit

    Runs this suite of tests.

    Runs this suite of tests.

    If testName is None, this trait's implementation of this method calls these two methods on this object in this order:

    • runNestedSuites(report, stopper, tagsToInclude, tagsToExclude, configMap, distributor)
    • runTests(testName, report, stopper, tagsToInclude, tagsToExclude, configMap)

    If testName is defined, then this trait's implementation of this method calls runTests, but does not call runNestedSuites. This behavior is part of the contract of this method. Subclasses that override run must take care not to call runNestedSuites if testName is defined. (The OneInstancePerTest trait depends on this behavior, for example.)

    Subclasses and subtraits that override this run method can implement them without invoking either the runTests or runNestedSuites methods, which are invoked by this trait's implementation of this method. It is recommended, but not required, that subclasses and subtraits that override run in a way that does not invoke runNestedSuites also override runNestedSuites and make it final. Similarly it is recommended, but not required, that subclasses and subtraits that override run in a way that does not invoke runTests also override runTests (and runTest, which this trait's implementation of runTests calls) and make it final. The implementation of these final methods can either invoke the superclass implementation of the method, or throw an UnsupportedOperationException if appropriate. The reason for this recommendation is that ScalaTest includes several traits that override these methods to allow behavior to be mixed into a Suite. For example, trait BeforeAndAfterEach overrides runTestss. In a Suite subclass that no longer invokes runTests from run, the BeforeAndAfterEach trait is not applicable. Mixing it in would have no effect. By making runTests final in such a Suite subtrait, you make the attempt to mix BeforeAndAfterEach into a subclass of your subtrait a compiler error. (It would fail to compile with a complaint that BeforeAndAfterEach is trying to override runTests, which is a final method in your trait.)

    testName

    an optional name of one test to run. If None, all relevant tests should be run. I.e., None acts like a wildcard that means run all relevant tests in this Suite.

    reporter

    the Reporter to which results will be reported

    stopper

    the Stopper that will be consulted to determine whether to stop execution early.

    filter

    a Filter with which to filter tests based on their tags

    configMap

    a Map of key-value pairs that can be used by the executing Suite of tests.

    distributor

    an optional Distributor, into which to put nested Suites to be run by another entity, such as concurrently by a pool of threads. If None, nested Suites will be run sequentially.

    tracker

    a Tracker tracking Ordinals being fired by the current thread.

    Run zero to many of this Suite's nested Suites.

    Run zero to many of this Suite's nested Suites.

    If the passed distributor is None, this trait's implementation of this method invokes run on each nested Suite in the List obtained by invoking nestedSuites. If a nested Suite's run method completes abruptly with an exception, this trait's implementation of this method reports that the Suite aborted and attempts to run the next nested Suite. If the passed distributor is defined, this trait's implementation puts each nested Suite into the Distributor contained in the Some, in the order in which the Suites appear in the List returned by nestedSuites, passing in a new Tracker obtained by invoking nextTracker on the Tracker passed to this method.

    Implementations of this method are responsible for ensuring SuiteStarting events are fired to the Reporter before executing any nested Suite, and either SuiteCompleted or SuiteAborted after executing any nested Suite.

    reporter

    Run a test.

    Run a test. This trait's implementation runs the test registered with the name specified by testName. Each test's name is a concatenation of the text of all describers surrounding a test, from outside in, and the test's spec text, with one space placed between each item. (See the documenation for testNames for an example.)

    Run zero to many of this Spec's tests.

    This method takes a testName parameter that optionally specifies a test to invoke. If testName is Some, this trait's implementation of this method invokes runTest on this object, passing in:

    • testName - the String value of the testName Option passed to this method
    • reporter - the Reporter passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it
    • stopper - the Stopper passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it
    • configMap - the configMap passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it

    This method takes a Set of tag names that should be included (tagsToInclude), and a Set that should be excluded (tagsToExclude), when deciding which of this Suite's tests to execute. If tagsToInclude is empty, all tests will be executed except those those belonging to tags listed in the tagsToExclude Set. If tagsToInclude is non-empty, only tests belonging to tags mentioned in tagsToInclude, and not mentioned in tagsToExclude will be executed. However, if testName is Some, tagsToInclude and tagsToExclude are essentially ignored. Only if testName is None will tagsToInclude and tagsToExclude be consulted to determine which of the tests named in the testNames Set should be run. For more information on trait tags, see the main documentation for this trait.

    If testName is None, this trait's implementation of this method invokes testNames on this Suite to get a Set of names of tests to potentially execute. (A testNames value of None essentially acts as a wildcard that means all tests in this Suite that are selected by tagsToInclude and tagsToExclude should be executed.) For each test in the testName Set, in the order they appear in the iterator obtained by invoking the elements method on the Set, this trait's implementation of this method checks whether the test should be run based on the tagsToInclude and tagsToExclude Sets. If so, this implementation invokes runTest, passing in:

    • testName - the String name of the test to run (which will be one of the names in the testNames Set)
    • reporter - the Reporter passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it
    • stopper - the Stopper passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it
    • configMap - the configMap passed to this method, or one that wraps and delegates to it
    testName

    an optional name of one test to execute. If None, all relevant tests should be executed. I.e., None acts like a wildcard that means execute all relevant tests in this Spec.

    Register a test with the given spec text, optional tags, and test function value that takes no arguments. An invocation of this method is called an “example.”

    This method will register the test for later execution via an invocation of one of the execute methods. The name of the test will be a concatenation of the text of all surrounding describers, from outside in, and the passed spec text, with one space placed between each item. (See the documenation for testNames for an example.) The resulting test name must not have been registered previously on this Spec instance.

    specText

    Registers shared scenarios.

    This method enables the following syntax for shared scenarios in a FixtureFeatureSpec:

    scenariosFor(nonEmptyStack(lastValuePushed))
    

    This method just provides syntax sugar intended to make the intent of the code clearer. Because the parameter passed to it is type Unit, the expression will be evaluated before being passed, which is sufficient to register the shared scenarios. For examples of shared scenarios, see the Shared scenarios section in the main documentation for trait FeatureSpec.

    Executes the block of code passed as the second parameter, and, if it completes abruptly with a ModifiableMessage exception, prepends the "clue" string passed as the first parameter to the beginning of the detail message of that thrown exception, then rethrows it. If clue does not end in a white space character, one space will be added between it and the existing detail message (unless the detail message is not defined).

    This method allows you to add more information about what went wrong that will be reported when a test fails. Here's an example:

    withClue("(Employee's name was: " + employee.name + ")") {
      intercept[IllegalArgumentException] {
        employee.getTask(-1)
      }
    }
    

    If an invocation of intercept completed abruptly with an exception, the resulting message would be something like:

    (Employee's name was Bob Jones) Expected IllegalArgumentException to be thrown, but no exception was thrown

    Run the passed test function in the context of a fixture established by this method.

    This method should set up the fixture needed by the tests of the current suite, invoke the test function, and if needed, perform any clean up needed after the test completes. Because the NoArgTest function passed to this method takes no parameters, preparing the fixture will require side effects, such as reassigning instance vars in this Suite or initializing a globally accessible external database. If you want to avoid reassigning instance vars you can use FixtureSuite.

    This trait's implementation of runTest invokes this method for each test, passing in a NoArgTest whose apply method will execute the code of the test.

    This trait's implementation of this method simply invokes the passed NoArgTest function.
