NAME

Web::Solid::Test::Basic - Basic Solid Tests

SYNOPSIS

  use Test::FITesque::RDF;
  my $suite = Test::FITesque::RDF->new(source => $file, base_uri => $ENV{SOLID_REMOTE_BASE})->suite;
  $suite->run_tests;
  done_testing;

See tests/basic.t for a full example.

DESCRIPTION

Introduction

The basic idea with these tests is to simplify reuse and formulation of fixture tables using the Resource Description Framework (RDF). It is in a very early stage, but there are running tests in this module.

This system is built on Test::FITesque::RDF, which adds RDF fixture tables to Test::FITesque.

Then, the idea is that modules such as this will provide a reusable implementation of certain tests, and that they can be adapted to concrete test scenarios by either passing parameters from the RDF tables (for both input variables and expected outcomes), or using environment variables.

To run the actual tests, test scripts will be made, but they should be terse as their only mission is to initialize the test framework, see the synopsis for an example of such a script. The script can then be invoked by e.g. CI systems or used in development.

The RDF fixture tables and the small wrapper scripts can exist independently of the module, and modules can be installed easily so that they can be reused. Nevertheless, it is also natural to package these together, like it has been done in this package.

Each module like this one will need to document the tests it implements, consider the below an example of how this should be done.

IMPLEMENTED TESTS

Test scripts

This package provides tests/basic.t which runs tests over the fixture table in tests/data/basic.ttl. The test script requires the environment variable SOLID_REMOTE_BASE to be set to the base URL that any relative URLs in the fixture tables will be resolved against. Thus, the fixture tables themselves are independent of the host that will run them.

To run the test script in the clone of this package, invoke it like this:

  SOLID_REMOTE_BASE="https://kjetiltest4.dev.inrupt.net/" prove -l tests/basic.t

http_read_unauthenticated

Some basic tests for HTTP reads.

Parameters

  • url

    The URL to request.

Environment

None

Implements

1. That an HTTP HEAD request to the given URL succeeds.
2. That an HTTP GET request to the given URL succeeds.
3. That the HEAD and GET requests had the same header fields.
4. That the values of the header fields are the same.

http_put_readback_unauthenticated

First writes some content with a PUT request, then reads it back with a GET and checks RDF validity.

Parameters

  • url

    The URL to request.

Environment

None

Implements

1. That an HTTP PUT with content request to the given URL succeeds.
2. That an HTTP GET request to the given URL succeeds.
3. That the content is valid RDF.
4. That the triples in the written and read RDF is the same.

http_write_with_bearer

Test for successful HTTP PUT authenticated with a Bearer token

Parameters

  • url

    The URL to request.

Environment

Set SOLID_BEARER_TOKEN to the bearer token to be used in the authorization header.

Implements

1. That an HTTP PUT request to the given URL with a short Turtle payload succeeds.

http_methods_with_bearer

Tests for whether a certain HTTP request, authenticated with a Bearer token, returns a certain status code.

Parameters

  • url

    The URL to request.

  • method

    The HTTP method to use in the request.

  • body

    The body of the request (optional).

  • code

    The expected status code to tests for.

Environment

Set SOLID_BEARER_TOKEN to the bearer token to be used in the authorization header.

Implements

1. That an HTTP request with the given method and body to the given URL with an payload returns the given status code.

NOTE

The parameters above are in the RDF formulated as actual full URIs, but where the local part is used here and resolved by the Test::FITesque::RDF framework, see its documentation for details.

TODO

The namespaces used in the current fixture tables are examples, and will be changed before an 1.0 release of the system.
