Subject Problem with action testing in MockStrutsTestCase
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2005 15:45:32 GMT
hi,

Prior to opening a page I call an action in order to store in request 
collection of value beans. Although I know how to test situation when 
everything goes OK I do not know how to test the oposite especially when 
Hibernate is being used.

My action in struts-config.xml is as follow:
       <action
          parameter="method"
          path="/goToAddCode"
          type="com.delphi.struts.action.CodeAction"
          validate="false">
          <forward name="success" path=".addCode" />
       </action>
the value of parameter is goToAdd (this invokes goToAdd action). The 
action is simply:

public ActionForward goToAdd(ActionMapping mapping,ActionForm form,
   HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response) {

   CodeKindDAO ckdao=new CodeKindDAO();
   List codekinds=ckdao.findAll();

   if(codekinds.isEmpty()){
    ActionMessages messages=new ActionMessages();
    if(codekinds.isEmpty())
     messages.add("error",new  ActionMessage("error.codekinds.missing"));
    saveMessages(request,messages);
    return mapping.findForward("failure");
   }

   request.setAttribute("codekinds",codekinds);

  return mapping.findForward(IConstants.SUCCESS);
}

The test for success is like that:
   setRequestPathInfo("/goToAddCode");
   addRequestParameter("method","goToAdd");

   actionPerform();

   verifyForward("success");
   assertTrue(!((List)request.getAttribute("codekinds")).isEmpty());

As I wrote I've a problem to test situation when there is an error. I 
suppose the solution is to change the way I provide datas for testing. 
At this moment I just call function from appropriate DAO object which in 
turn use hibernate API.
How to write action tests with hibernate?

Rgs.
