ABLUnit and ANT

Posted by Tjerk Coomans on 28-Nov-2014 07:34


I'm trying to let ABLUnit run from Jenkins and an ANT script.

checkout svn works fine

compile works fine

but when the ABLUnit test starts the task keeps running. I see that some stuff is created in the wrkdir.

This is the Jenkins console output. ABLUnit just keeps running and I have to kill the process.

Anyone any ideas?

Hi Gilles,

Yeas indeed ABLUnitTask

<target name="ABLUnit" depends="taskdef">

<ablunit dlc="C:\Progress\OpenEdge\114" environment="gui"

printsummary="true" haltonerror="yes" haltonfailure="yes" tempdir="C:\Work\Jenkins\tmpDir">

<dbinfo name="C:\OpenEdge\WRK\114\sports2000.db" host="localhost" port="12345" />


<pathelement location="${basedir}/Tests" />


<test name="${basedir}/tests/beSampleTest.cls" todir="${basedir}/Results" outfile="result-beSampleTest-gui" format="xml" />

So it's the PSC ABLUnit task, I don't know how it works :-)

There's one in PCT : code.google.com/.../ABLUnit

Hello Coomans,

I observed this problem when ABLUnit task is not able to find the test (beSampleTest.cls at ${basedir}/tests). There is a message displaying this info in background which needs user intervention. Providing the correct path solved this problem for me.

Hope this helps,

Thanks all for the input. Stupid me forgot part of the propath and since the test was running on the sources the compile didn't work  and the test keeps hanging.

Would be nice to see the compile failure in the console log :)
