Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): TIP#136 (Implemented) Add optional support for selenium remote control to acs-automated-testing
This will not change the default behavior of acs-automated-testing beyond supporting a new category for tests.
These will be optional and set to empty strings by default.
If they are set, tests with category of selenium will attempt to run.
I will add the two tcl files reference here http://wiki.tcl.tk/17883 selenium.tcl and http.tcl
This will allow developers to write tests for Selenium Remote Control http://seleniumhq.org/projects/remote-control/ which is a powerful system to run tests in a browser.
It gives us reporting for the selenium tests with all our other tests.
In the future it might be possible to record selenium-ide tests that generate code for Tcl or to import selenium-ide tests and conver them to Tcl on the server side to allow non-developers to create tests.
I have this working pretty well and the code is ready to commit to HEAD.
I approve... blindly :)
If we get to write good tests for the toolkit that will help a lot.
