Getting ready for the workshop: (exercises to do before attending)

  • Run the tests in the browser: google-chrome ./introTestRunners/runInBrowser.html

  • Run the tests in the command-line: ./introTestRunners/

  • You will see all the tests failing. You have to make them pass, and understand why they do it.

  • Don't worry about jsTestDriver, we will see that during the workshop

  • Try to delete part of the tests or the production code and then try to make them pass again

During the workshop - Starting the application and its tests:

  • Make sure port 3000 is free for the server to run (other servers might be running already)

  • Start the server: node server.js

  • Check that the application is working: google-chrome http://localhost:3000 (make sure you can read, "app started")

  • How to run ACCEPTANCE TESTS: google-chrome http://localhost:3000/test/acceptanceTestRunner.html

  • How to run UNIT TESTS: google-chrome ./appTestRunners/runUnit.html

  • How to run FINE-GRAINED INTEGRATION TESTS: google-chrome ./appTestRunners/runIntegrationTests.html
