    Seam 1.2.1.GA Integration Testing (identity.login)

    Maarten Haubrich Newbie

      Hi,

      I have a question about the integration testing of the login process with the 1.2.1 seam version and I hope someone can help me here as I've been trying around for quite some time now on my own to no result...

      Ok... I have the following JSF view: (extract)

      <h:form rendered="#{not identity.loggedIn}">
       #{messages['login.form']}
       <br />
      
       <span class="errors">
       <h:messages globalOnly="true" />
       </span>
      
       <table cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" border="0" >
       <tr>
       <td>#{messages['login.login']}:</td><td><h:inputText value="#{identity.username}" id="login" /></td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
       <td>#{messages['login.pwd']}:</td><td><h:inputSecret value="#{identity.password}" id="password" /></td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
       <td colspan="2" align="right"><h:commandButton value="#{messages['login.button']}" action="#{identity.login}" /></td>
       </tr>
       </table>
       </h:form>



      In components.xml I have defined my authentication method as follows:

      <security:identity authenticate-method="#{authenticator.authenticate}"/>
      



      My Authenticator interface and AuthenticatorAction class look like so:

      import org.jboss.annotation.ejb.Local;
      
      @Local
      public interface Authenticator {
      
       public boolean authenticate();
      
      }


      import java.io.Serializable;
      
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.In;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.JndiName;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Logger;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      import org.jboss.seam.contexts.Context;
      import org.jboss.seam.log.Log;
      import org.jboss.seam.security.Identity;
      
      @Name("authenticator")
      public class AuthenticatorAction implements Authenticator, Serializable
      {
       private static final long serialVersionUID = 4836686434984261542L;
      
       private static final String USER_VAR = "currentUser";
      
       @In
       private Context sessionContext;
      
       @Logger
       private Log log;
      
      
       /**
       * validate the username and password
       */
       public boolean authenticate()
       {
      
       User user = ServiceLocator.instance() // find user in database
       .getLoginService()
       .authenticate(Identity.instance().getUsername(), Identity.instance().getPassword());
       if(user==null)
       {
       log.debug("invalid login!");
       return false;
       }
      
       Identity.instance().addRole("user");
      
       if(user.isAdmin()) // add admin role if the user is an admin
       Identity.instance().addRole("admin");
      
       sessionContext.set(USER_VAR, user); // save in session context
      
       log.debug("login successful: #0", user);
      
       return true;
       }
      
      
      }



      And finally my test class:
      import static org.testng.AssertJUnit.*;
      
      import org.jboss.seam.log.Log;
      import org.jboss.seam.log.Logging;
      import org.jboss.seam.mock.SeamTest;
      import org.testng.annotations.Configuration;
      import org.testng.annotations.Test;
      
      public class AuthenticatorActionTest extends SeamTest {
      
      
       @Test
       public void testAuthenticate() throws Exception
       {
      
       new FacesRequest()
       {
      
       @Override
       protected void updateModelValues() throws Exception
       {
       assertFalse("session should be valid", isSessionInvalid()); // assert that the session is NOT invalid
      
       setValue("#{identity.username}", "test"); // inject the login values
       setValue("#{identity.password}", "test");
      
       }
      
       @Override
       protected void invokeApplication()
       {
       invokeMethod("#{identity.login}");
       }
      
       @Override
       protected void renderResponse()
       {
      
       assertTrue("identity.loggedIn", getValue("#{identity.loggedIn}").equals(true)); // make sure that we are logged in
       assertEquals("view id", "/home.xhtml", getViewId() ); // assert that the home-page is being shown
       }
      
       }.run();
      
      
       }
      }



      Now when I run the Test it fails at the
      assertTrue("identity.loggedIn", getValue("#{identity.loggedIn}").equals(true));
      part !

      Am I missing something here ?!

      Thanks for you help !

      Maarten

          I assume that in my test environment the #{authenticator.authenticate} is not mapped correctly !

          Any ideas as to how I could fix this ??

          THanks !!

            You have a local interface for AuthenticatorAction yet it is a POJO component, not a session bean. First thing I would try doing is to remove this interface.

              Hi Shane,

              thanks for the reply !

              I will remove the interface and post the results.

                Hi Shane,

                I tried removing the Interface but I still get the same result.

                Any other ideas ??

                Thanks!

                  No idea really, all of your code and configuration looks fine to me. If you can post it to JIRA in a deployable form (and assign to me) I'd be happy to take a look for you.

                    Why is your Authenticator interface annotated with @Local, yet your AuthenticatorAction doesn't have a @Stateful or @Stateless annotation?

                      @Shane: Thanks, I will do that within today.

                      @Monkeyden: Thanks for you reply. Honestly I don't know. I am still learning the Jboss/EJB architecture. What exactly does @Local, @Stateful, @Stateless imply?

                        Shane perhaps you can help me with another issue I am having.

                        When performing integration tests I would like to assert that after invoking a certain method the correct JSF view is rendered.

                        But FacesRequest.getViewId() keeps returning null no matter where I redirect from my actions.

                        Also I have tried FacesRequest.getRenderedViewId() to no effect.
                        (I looked into the source and found:

                        /**
                         * Get the view id to be rendered
                         *
                         * @return the JSF view id
                         */
                        protected String getRenderedViewId()
                        {
                         if ( Init.instance().isJbpmInstalled() && Pageflow.instance().isInProcess() )
                         {
                         return Pageflow.instance().getPageViewId();
                         }
                         else
                         {
                         //TODO: not working right now, 'cos no mock navigation handler!
                         return getFacesContext().getViewRoot().getViewId();
                         }
                         }


                        so that could be the reason...

                        Any thoughts on this ?

                        THanks !!

                          I found the same problem :(. Can anybody @ JBoss give as a reply? Will it be available in the next beta release? Or GA release?
