Arch::Test::Framework - A test framework for Arch-Perl


    use Arch::Test::Framework;

    my $fw = Arch::Test::Framework->new;

    my $archive = $fw->make_archive;
    my $version = $archive->make_version();

    my $tree = $fw->make_tree($version);

    # do something with $tree

    $tree->import('initial import');


Arch::Test::Framework is a framework to quickly generate testing data (archives, versions, trees, changesets, etc) for arch-perl unit tests.

new [%args]

Create a new arch-perl test environment.

Valid keys for %args are home to specify an existing test environment to reuse, library to specify a different revision library path, archives to specify a different archives directory, and trees to specify a differente project tree directory. The default values are $home/library, $home/archives, and $home/trees respectively.

A different arch user id can be selected with the userid key, the default is Arch Perl Test <arch-perl-test@example.com>.


These methods return the environment parameters as initialized by new.

make_archive [archive_name]

Create a new archive in the archives directory. If archive_name is not specified a unique name is generated. The archive name is returned. Returns an Arch::Test::Archive reference for the archive.

make_tree version [name]

Create and initialize (tla init-tree) a new project tree for version. I name is not specified, a unique identifier will be generated. Returns an Arch::Test::Tree reference for the project tree.
