NAME

Rex::Test::Base - Basic Test Module

DESCRIPTION

This is a basic test module to test your code with the help of local VMs. You can place your tests in the "t" directory.

EXAMPLE

 use Rex::Test::Base;
 use Data::Dumper;
 use Rex -base;
 
 test {
   my $t = shift;
 
   $t->name("ubuntu test");
 
   $t->base_vm("http://box.rexify.org/box/ubuntu-server-12.10-amd64.ova");
   $t->vm_auth(user => "root", password => "box");
 
   $t->run_task("setup");
 
   $t->has_package("vim");
   $t->has_package("ntp");
   $t->has_package("unzip");
 
   $t->has_file("/etc/ntp.conf");
 
   $t->has_service_running("ntp");
 
   $t->has_content("/etc/passwd", qr{root:x:0:}ms);
 
   run "ls -l";
   $t->ok($? == 0, "ls -l returns success.");
 
   $t->finish;
 };

METHODS

new(name => $test_name)

Constructor if used in OO mode.

 my $test = Rex::Test::Base->new(name => "test_name");

name($name)

The name of the test. A VM called $name will be created for each test. If the VM already exists, Rex will try to reuse it.

vm_auth(%auth)

base_vm($vm)

The URL to a base image to be used for the test VM.

redirect_port($port)

Redirect local $port to the VM's SSH port (default: 2222).

run_task($task)

The task to run on the test VM. You can run multiple tasks by passing an array reference.

has_dir($path)

Test if $path is present and is a directory.

has_file($file)
