ABLUnit ... the saga continues

Posted by cwright on 21-Sep-2016 13:46

So I have setup a TTY OpenEdge project. I have add ABLUnit to the project facet. 


using Progress.Lang.*.
routine-level on error undo, throw.
class com.pro.utils.general:

  method public static character getMessage( kInName as character ):
    return "Hello " + kInName.
  end method.
end class.


using Progress.Lang.*.
block-level on error undo, throw.
class unit.pro.utils.general:
  method public void test_getMessage_Cameron( ):
    define variable kMsg as character no-undo.
    kMsg = com.pro.utils.general:getMessage("Cameron").
    OpenEdge.Core.Assert:Equals("Hello Cameron", kMsg).
  end method.
end class.

This all happens from within PDSOE. I have configured the run as ... to use the "OpenEdge Runtime Environment" which is TTY. When I run as Progress ABLUnit Application, I get the following results:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<testsuites errors="1" failures="0" name="ABLUnit" tests="1">
<testsuite name="C:\workspace\TDD\tests\unit\pro\utils\general.cls" tests="1" time=".446">
<testcase name="test_getMessage_Cameron" status="Error" time="0">

However, if I set the project to NOT be TTY, recompile and run, the tests execute as expected. My first thought is that I have to recompile all the ABLUnit/* code to use TTY but am unsure. Any help would be great.

Hi Cameron,

Could you please try adding tests folder to PROPATH? For a TTY enabled project, tests folder is not being added to run configuration by default (This is a bug) in PDS OE. Adding tests folder to run configuration's PROPATH should work.

Hope this helps,

Hi DivyaTheja,

I came to the same conclusion last night and have been searching for an existing defect before creating a new one.  This was indeed his problem.  When running in GUI the problem didn't happen so I'm assuming the directory was programmatically added to the PROPATH, however in TTY this didn't happen.

If there is already a defect logged can you please share the issue #?
