Generating Client Test Data
Generate test requests and responses for Knora's routes, to be used in testing client code without the need for a running Knora instance.
Client test data is generated as a side effect of running Knora's E2E tests.
E2E tests use
ClientTestDataCollector to collect test API requests and
responses. The implementation of
ClientTestDataCollector collects these
in a Redis hash. When the E2E tests have completed, the script
webapi/scripts/dump-client-test-data.sh saves the collected test data
in a Zip file. It then checks the filenames in the Zip file by comparing them
with the list in
On macOS, you will need to install Redis in order to have the
redis-cli command-line tool:
brew install redis
To generate client test data, type:
When the tests have finished running, you will find the file
client-test-data.zip in the current directory.
If generated client test data changes, run
make client-test-data, then run
this script to update the list of expected test data files:
