Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Docker container auto-build

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
Is there a way / best practice to trigger the testing of OpenACS installation from the command line or a single Tcl command...

Several years ago, i wrote a script for sending a single command or a script to nsd via nscp. Under nscp one can run arbitrary Tcl/OpenACS commands, but there is no connection. This script can be used to control a NaviServer instance either via command line or via cron job.

OpenACS testing is build around the web interface, so one needs a way to collect the output in a useful way. Since the test results are written into the database, it should be possible to trigger the start of the test run this way and to collect later the test results from the DB.
