03:28 andrewma Hi! I have  a couple of questions about testing patches using the sandboxes and jenkins...
03:31 andrewma With the sandboxes,, I successfully set up one up but is there a way to view the server logs? I am trying to ensure warnings are not emitted.
03:31 jcamins andrewma: I don't believe there is any way to view the server logs, no.
03:33 andrewma With the Jenkins server, is there a way I can set up a build for me? I see the command logs although do the tests in this environment run any system tests, simulating user operations?
03:34 jcamins No. You'd have to run Koha on your own server. Jenkins is entirely automated.
03:35 jcamins It's easy to set up a test server, though.
03:35 jcamins Well... reasonably easy.
03:38 jcamins (you'd need to set up your own server if the sandboxes don't allow you to test what you want, I mean)
03:57 andrewma OK, thanks. I have got a setup configured on my machine but was wondering if there were any system or scenario automated tests around.
03:58 jcamins Not really.
03:58 jcamins There are unit tests in t.
03:59 andrewma Whilst using my system (master) I am seeing a quite a few warnings output to the webserver logs. I can fix these but was looking for a more controlled environment.
04:00 andrewma I have found t, but they don't drive the system as a user does.
04:01 andrewma I can call the CGI .pl commands via the command line, but have not looked at how to set up a session login via that route. This should in theory appear closer to user interaction/system tests
04:02 jcamins No, there are scads of warnings in general.
04:02 jcamins Ugh, you don't want to do that.
04:02 jcamins I recommend... bah. I can't think of the library I use for that sort of testing.
04:04 andrewma With the large number of warnings, have any users experienced the system disk filling up and thus stopping the system?
04:05 jcamins If they didn't set up logrotate, probably.
04:06 jcamins However, I can't recall any reports of that.
04:06 andrewma Ah yes, logrotate would hide the large number of warnings and avoid filling the disk up!
04:07 jcamins Test::WWW::Mechanize.
04:07 jcamins Test::WWW::Mechanize?
04:07 jcamins mechanize?
04:07 wahanui i think mechanize is fine
04:07 jcamins mechanize?
04:07 wahanui hmmm... mechanize is fine
04:07 jcamins www mechanize?
04:07 jcamins Anyway, search for that in the wiki.
04:07 * jcamins calls it a night.
04:07 andrewma Ah ok. thanks. Ah there tests using that module then?
04:07 jcamins Not really, no.
04:08 jcamins I used it to write a regression test that no one but me could get to run, then gave up.
04:08 andrewma But you have used it, so you have your own?
04:08 jcamins I mostly use a checklist for testing upgrades.
04:09 jcamins I used it for writing a few proof of concept integration tests.
04:09 jcamins bug 8300
04:09 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8300 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jcamins, CLOSED FIXED, Koha should have mechanized testing suite
04:09 andrewma Ah I see!
04:09 jcamins Oh, hey, I pushed it.
04:10 andrewma So I should have the tests if you pushed them?
04:10 jcamins Good for me!
04:10 jcamins That was a good choice.
04:10 * jcamins ++
04:10 jcamins :)
04:10 jcamins Yeah, in t/db_dependent/www/
04:10 * jcamins calls it a night.

04:11 andrewma thanks a lot!
