Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib(3) Utilities for writing Wiki::Toolkit tests.


When 'perl Makefile.PL' is run on a Wiki::Toolkit distribution, information will be gathered about test databases etc that can be used for running tests. Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib gives convenient access to this information.


use strict;
use Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib;
use Test::More;
my $iterator = Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib->new_wiki_maker;
plan tests => ( $iterator->number * 6 );
while ( my $wiki = $iterator->new_wiki ) {
# put some test data in
# run six tests

Each time you call "->next" on your iterator, you will get a fresh blank wiki object. The iterator will iterate over all configured search and storage backends.

The Lucy search backend will be configured to index three metadata fields: address, category, and locale.


  my $iterator = Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib->new_wiki_maker;
  use Test::More;
  my $iterator = Wiki::Toolkit::TestLib->new_wiki_maker;
  plan tests => ( $iterator->number * 6 );

Returns the number of new wikis that your iterator will be able to give you.

  my $wiki = $iterator->new_wiki;

Returns a fresh blank wiki object, or false if you've used up all the configured search and storage backends.

  my @configured_databases = $iterator->configured_databases;
  Returns the @configured_databases array detailing configured test databases.
  Useful for very low-level testing only.

If you have the Search::InvertedIndex backend configured (see Wiki::Toolkit::Search::SII) then your tests will raise warnings like

  (in cleanup) Search::InvertedIndex::DB::Mysql::lock() -
    testdb is not open. Can't lock.
  at /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1/Search/ line 1348


  (in cleanup) Can't call method "sync" on an undefined value
    at /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1/Tie/DB_File/ line 331
    during global destruction.

in unexpected places. I don't know whether this is a bug in me or in Search::InvertedIndex.
