    Seam Test problem (jsf required attribute)

    Max Meyers Newbie

      hi!


      I have problems using Seam framework for integration tests. My current problem is, that i want to test the jsf required attribute. here is my test case:



      @Test
      public void testCreateOrganisation() throws Exception {
           String id = login(ADMIN_LOGIN);
      
           id = new FacesRequest(ORG_VIEW, id) {
      
                @Override
                protected void invokeApplication() throws Exception {
                     assertEquals(
                               invokeAction("#{organisations.createOrganisation}"),
                               JSFNavigationConstants.ORGANISATION_CREATE);
                }
      
           }.run();
      
           new FacesRequest(ORG_CREATE_VIEW, id) {
                
                @Override
                protected void processValidations() throws Exception {
                     validateValue("#{selectedOrganisation.name}", "");
                     assertTrue(isValidationFailure());
                }
      
                @Override
                protected void renderResponse() throws Exception {
                     FacesContext fc = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
                     assertEquals(fc.getMaximumSeverity(),
                               FacesMessage.SEVERITY_ERROR);
      
                     boolean contains = false;
                     Iterator<FacesMessage> fms = fc.getMessages();
                     while (fms.hasNext()) {
                          FacesMessage fm = fms.next();
                          if (fm.getDetail().equals("Feld muss ausgefüllt werden")) {
                               contains = true;
                          }
                     }
                     assertTrue(contains);
                     assertTrue(Manager.instance().isLongRunningConversation());
                }
      
           }.run();
      }



      At the beginning there is some login procedure which works fine. Next I want to make a FacesRequest to the organisation view, which is like a crud interface. In invokeApplication method i want to navigate to the create interface of organisation. Till now all is fine.


      Next I want to test, if the jsf required attribute is set. Therefore i validate the empty string for the organisation name. Now i expect isValidationFailure() to return true since the required attribute is indeed set. But it returns false. That's the point, where i don't know why and what to try next. It's nearly the same test like in the booking example:



        new FacesRequest("/book.xhtml", id) {
      
            @Override
            protected void processValidations() throws Exception
            {
                validateValue("#{booking.creditCardName}", "");
                assert isValidationFailure();
            }
      
            @Override
            protected void renderResponse()
            {
                Iterator messages = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getMessages();
                assert messages.hasNext();
                assert ( (FacesMessage) messages.next() ).getSummary().equals("Credit card name is required");
                assert !messages.hasNext();
                assert Manager.instance().isLongRunningConversation();
            }
            
            @Override
            protected void afterRequest()
            {
                assert !isInvokeApplicationBegun();
            }
            
        }.run();



      I didn't try it, but i believe it works ;) so the big question is, why there occurs a validtion failure in the booking example, but not in my test?


      Thanks!
