Test::Chimps::Report - Encapsulate a smoke test report


Represents a smoke report. See Jifty::DBI::Record.

Note that parts of this class are dynamically generated in Test::Chimps::Server base on the configuation file.


new ARGS

Creates a new Report. ARGS is a hash whose only valid key is handle. Its value must be a Jifty::DBI::Handle.


Test::Chimps::Reports have the following columns (and consequently accessors):

  • report_html

  • model_structure

  • timestamp

  • total_ok

  • total_passed

  • total_nok

  • total_failed

  • total_percentage

  • total_ratio

  • total_seen

  • total_skipped

  • total_todo

  • total_unexpectedly_succeeded

Additionally, columns are added dynamically based on the report variables specified in the server. Unfortunately, this means that external modules have a hard time getting at the Report class as seen by the server.
