Subject Re: Cayenne junit testing, Was: Cayenne 3.0 roadmap
Date Mon, 30 Oct 2006 14:33:06 GMT
Current default Cayenne unit tests are probably a bad model, as most  
bootstrap code was written before Cayenne was even operational.  
However the new Maven-based integration test package that targets  
testing of POJO's is the state of the art as far as I am concerned  
(can be used from Ant as well of course): 

You can mirror this approach:

* generated entity classes are placed in the "main" source folder
* test cases a placed in the "test" source folder
* a common superclass of all test cases performs shared stack  
initialization and creates the schema from Cayenne mapping (or from a  
manual SQL script - whichever applies)
* ItestDBUtils is used to perform raw DB operations bypassing Cayenne  
(this is still work in progress - more utility methods can be added):
