HttpUnit is an open source test framework for web applications which can provide browser specific behaviour like sending request to the We are using Spring sts , JDK 8, HttpUnit JUnit Tutorial for Unit Testing. 4. However if you’re a programmer who just got the job to create functional or unit tests, you’ll find HttpUnit a much more enjoyable and programmer-friendly toolkit. HttpUnit allows us to test navigating through our JSPs by clicking links and buttons and filling out forms. In this tutorial, we will explain.

Typically Web Applications should not allow input which can cause a system-wide failure, but perhaps the reason of the automated Test Case is to highlight such an issue in the application. We will identify the following uses of the system: Here is a simple implementation:.

Of course it should be also possible to log in with a specific user, for example to verify the “Register User” Use Case Even better, you might want to refactor the validation logic into a helper class rather than the servlet itself.

5.10 Submitting Form Data

Running the ant script will compile the code and run the tests. First of all, we need an installed Java 2 SDK, to be able to compile and execute our tests. I this example we will develop a program to access the JSP file from tomcat server running locally. I use Eclipse 3.


However if you’re a programmer who just got the job to create functional or unit tests, you’ll find HttpUnit a much more enjoyable and programmer-friendly toolkit.

Once the request is httpuni validated, the servlet dispatches to the JSP for rendering. For this article, let’s assume that you have a set of things you want to test for your web application, organized into sets of Test Case scenarios.

The developers could add a search box on the top for example, and your tests will potentially fail even if the specific Form you’re using will not change. These tools can capture the way the testers interact with the browser, and play it back in a configurable and sometimes programmable manner. Welcome to the example 1. To run this code, you will also need the web.

If I realize that within a Test Case class I need to copy-and-paste code sections, I can just use the Refactoring menu to create a method from the code section instead. This tutorial shows you how to use HttpUnit to test your web applications. I have created a bat file addtoppath. At this point, the tests including all of the old tests should pass. You want to write a test that submits your HTML forms and verifies the forms functionality.

I call it ConfigurableTestCase. First of all, it has a very nice jUnit test runner. Pay particular attention to the todo comments. For the development of the Test Case implementations, I prefer to work in Eclipse.

Unit Testing with HTTPUnit

It is best suited for the implementation of automated functional tests, or acceptance tests. After each request and response cycle, we typically need to verify if the returned page contains an error, and we need to verify our assertions about what content the response should contain. For a simple application, the whole specification could possibly consist of a simple text file with a list of requirements.


You should begin each section by copying the initial directory, which includes an ant build script and some classes that you will need to complete it. Later tasks will require a web browser and a servlet engine, and use WebConversation.

The first step will simply be to verify that we can register and access the servlet, which we will name PoolEditorServlet. This simulates what the user would tutodial if he was filling out a form in a web browser. Creating the ServletRunner class which represents access to a Servlet application.

The Application Our application is an office sport betting pool. Example shows the updated servlet. Based on the architectural requirements above, for each project I typically create a base Test Case class, which extends the jUnit TestCase class.

There are many expensive or free tools to create automated test scripts for web applications.

So all we tutoriap to do is to create a build. In this step, you will learn how to: Architecture of HttpUnit HttpUnit consists of two core components:
