This module provides the basic utilities to write tests against Bio::Chado::Schema.



  my $schema = Bio::Chado::Schema::Test->init_schema(
    deploy            => 1,
    populate          => 1,
    storage_type      => '::DBI::Replicated',
    storage_type_args => {

This method removes the test SQLite database in t/var/BCS.db and then creates a new, empty database.

This method will call deploy_schema() by default, unless the deploy flag is set to 0.

This method will call populate_schema() if the populate argument is set to a true value.


Returns true if the BCS_TEST_DSN environment variable is set.


  Bio::Chado::Schema::Test->deploy_schema( $schema );

This method does one of two things to the schema. It can either call the experimental $schema->deploy() if the BCSTEST_SQLT_DEPLOY environment variable is set, otherwise the default is to read in the t/lib/sqlite.sql file and execute the SQL within. Either way you end up with a fresh set of tables for testing.


  Bio::Chado::Schema::Test->populate_schema( $schema );

After you deploy your schema you can use this method to populate the tables with test data.
