NAME

Test::XML::Simple - easy testing for XML

SYNOPSIS

  use Test::XML::Simple tests => 8;

  # pass string with XML as argument
  xml_valid $xml, "Is valid XML";
  xml_node $xml, "/xpath/expression", "specified xpath node is present";
  xml_is, $xml, '/xpath/expr', "expected value", "specified text present";
  xml_like, $xml, '/xpath/expr', qr/expected/, "regex text present";
  xml_is_deeply, $xml, '/xpath/expr', $xml2, "structure and contents match";

  # XML::LibXML::Document can be passed as argument too
  #  that allow you to test a big documents with several tests
  my $xml_doc = XML::LibXML->createDocument( '1.0' );
  xml_valid $xml_doc, 'Is valid XML';
  xml_node $xml_doc, '/xpath/expression', 'specified xpath node is present';
  xml_like, $xml_doc, '/xpath/expression', qr/expected result/, 'regex present';

  # Not yet implemented:
  # xml_like_deeply would be nice too...

DESCRIPTION

Test::XML::Simple is a very basic class for testing XML. It uses the XPath syntax to locate nodes within the XML. You can also check all or part of the structure vs. an XML fragment. All routines accept as first argument string with XML or XML::LibXML::Document object.

TEST ROUTINES

xml_valid $xml, 'test description'

Pass an XML file or fragment to this test; it succeeds if the XML (fragment) is valid.

xml_node $xml, $xpath, 'test description'

Checks the supplied XML to see if the node described by the supplied XPath expression is present. Test fails if it is not present.

xml_is_long $xml, $xpath, $value, 'test description'

Finds the node corresponding to the supplied XPath expression and compares it to the supplied value. Succeeds if the two values match. Uses Test::More's is function to do the comparison.

xml_is $xml, $xpath, $value, 'test description'

Finds the node corresponding to the supplied XPath expression and compares it to the supplied value. Succeeds if the two values match. Uses Test::LongString's is_string function to do the test.

xml_like_long $xml, $xpath, $regex, 'test description'

Find the XML corresponding to the the XPath expression and check it against the supplied regular expression. Succeeds if they match. Uses Test::More's like function to do the comparison.

xml_like $xml, $xpath, $regex, 'test description'

Find the XML corresponding to the the XPath expression and check it against the supplied regular expression. Succeeds if they match. Uses Test::LongString's like_string function to do the test.

xml_is_deeply_long $xml, $xpath, $xml2, 'test description'

Find the piece of XML corresponding to the XPath expression, and compare its structure and contents to the second XML (fragment) supplied. Succeeds if they match in structure and content. Uses Test::More's is function to do the comparison.

xml_is_deeply $xml, $xpath, $xml2, 'test description'

Find the piece of XML corresponding to the XPath expression, and compare its structure and contents to the second XML (fragment) supplied. Succeeds if they match in structure and content. Uses Test::LongString's is_string function to do the test.
