Running integration tests
If you've checked out the code and made changes to the platform, you may want to run the platform integration tests. These are some instructions on how to run the integration tests on your developer machine.
To run the integration tests in MAVEN you need to boot the backend services.
cd molgenis-platform-integration-tests/integ-test-env; docker-compose up -d;
And then run the MAVEN command.
mvn verify -pl molgenis-platform-integration-tests --batch-mode \ -Dmaven.test.redirectTestOutputToFile=true \ -Dit_db_user=postgres \ -Dit_db_password=postgres \ -Dit_db_port=5432;
When finished please execute:
IMPORTANT: this is another stack than the one in
molgenis-app/dev-env. Do NOT run these at the same time.
When developing, you can run the integration tests as usual.
IMPORTANT: make sure you have no MOLGENIS dev-env or other docker-compose stacks running. Check your "docker-tab" in IntelliJ or run
docker pson the commandline.
Please boot the backend services with the docker-compose stack in the source-tree.
- Navigate to molgenis-platform-integration-tests/integ-test-env
- Right click the
docker-compose.yaml, click on Create 'integ-test-env: Compose...'
- Check the option
--build, force build images
Add the following variables to the environment:
- Run the 'integ-test-env: Compose...' Run configuration
- Then click on the
molgenis-platform-integration-testsmodule and click Run --> All Tests (TestNG)
The code will not make any attempts to delete the integration test database and index. (But you can easily create and call a cleanup script yourself to use when needed.)
By default, IntelliJ reads system properties from your pom.xml and adds those to the test runs.
This won't work!
You should disable this feature:
Navigate to the Running Tests properties
Go to Settings / Build, Execution, Deployment / Build tools / Maven / Running Tests
Go to Preferences / Settings / Build, Execution, Deployment / Build tools / Maven / Running Tests
Uncheck the box labelled
When building pull requests
A travis config file is added that shows travis how to build molgenis and execute the integration tests. These will be run on travis-ci.org when you make a pull request to the github molgenis/molgenis repository. The integration tests run in maven in the postgres database provided by travis. user is travis, database name is travis, password is blank The build script uses the default options to create a elasticsearch cluster.
Concurrent builds on a single machine
The maven build can handle concurrent builds on a single machine. It'll launch a new elasticsearch instance for each run. However, starting up additional elasticsearch instances can become rather slow for concurrent builds.
