Jump Start FitNesse with Sahi using Generic Fixture

Sahi is one of the popular automated web test tool these days. Recently a comment was made by Mr Tom Heintzberger on my blog post here on Use of variables, arrays and complex types in Generic Fixture regarding use of Sahi with Generic Fixture and the problems he’s facing while trying to build DSL around it. So I decided to look into it and ended up creating a DSL myself to be used with Sahi.

Refer to Jump Start FitNesse with Selenium using Generic Fixture for detailed steps to download and install FitNesse & Generix Fixture.

Create a page on FitNesse for Sahi Web Test using Generic Fixture

  1. Open your browser and goto the URL http://localhost:8000/FrontPage. Look for the Edit button on the left hand navigation column. If Edit button is not present then goto the URL http://localhost:8000/FrontPage?properties and select the “Edit”check box and click on Save Properties. Now click on Edit button and once on the Edit Page add a new line at the end of all the text already there and save your changes.
    |[[Sahi Web Test Suites][FitNesse.SahiTestSuite]]|Sahi Web Tests|
  2. Now on the Front Page it will display a text like “Sahi Web Test Suites?” with ? as hyper link. Click on ? link.
  3. Once in the Edit Page, copy paste following text into text area and save your changes:
    !*> Class Path & Global Defines
    !path genericfixture.jar
    !path sahi.jar
    !path bsh.jar
    
    !define COLLAPSE_SETUP {true}
    !define COLLAPSE_TEARDOWN {true}
    *!
    ----
    >SetUp
    >TearDown
    >GoogleSahiTest
  4. You will notice 3 ? links on the page indicating missing pages. Now lets create each and every missing page.
  5. Click on the ? link next to SetUp text and on the “Edit Page” text area copy-paste following code and finally save your changes.
    !| DSL Adapter |
    | user starts the browser | open | |
    | user opens the URL | % | navigateTo | {1} |
    | page has the title | title | |
    | user clicks on the link named | % | GenericFixture.bsh | sahi.link( new String[] {"{1}"} ).click(); |
    | page loads in less than | % | seconds | waitFor | {1}000 |
    | user types | % | into | % | field | GenericFixture.bsh | sahi.textbox( new String[] {"{2}"} ).setValue( "{1}" ); |
    | user clicks on the button named | % | GenericFixture.bsh | sahi.submit( new String[] {"{1}"} ).click(); |
    | page has URL | fetch | location.href |
    | show | toString | |
    
    !| Generic Fixture| net.sf.sahi.config.Configuration |
    | initJava | /home/sahi | /home/sahi/userdata |
    
    !| Generic Fixture | sahi=net.sf.sahi.client.Browser | firefox |
    | user starts the browser |
  6. Go back to the page: http://localhost:8000/FitNesse.SahiTestSuite
  7. Click on the ? link next to TearDown text and on the “Edit Page” text area copy-paste following code and finally save your changes.
    !| Generic Fixture | sahi= |
    | user stops the browser |
  8. Again go back to the page: http://localhost:8000/FitNesse.SahiTestSuite
  9. Now click on ? link next to GoogleSahiTest text and on the “Edit Page” text area copy-paste following code an save your changes.
    !| Generic Fixture | sahi= |
    | isFirefox | | true |
    | user opens the URL | http://www.google.co.in |
    | user types | sahi forums | into | q | field |
    | user clicks on the button named | Google Search |
    | page loads in less than | 1 | seconds |
    | user clicks on the link named | Sahi - Web Automation and Test Tool |
    | page loads in less than | 1 | seconds |
    | page has the title | | Sahi - Web Automation and Test Tool  |
    | page has URL | | http://sahi.co.in/forums/ |
  10. After saving your changes click on Properties button from the left hand navigation menu and click on check box left to Test property and save your changes. Now you should see Test button available on the top lest navigation menu.

Execute your Google Sahi Test Page on FitNesse using Selenium

Just click on the Test click on this page: http://localhost:8000/FitNesse.GenericFixture.SahiTestSuite.GoogleSahiTest and watch how your Sahi automated web test is being run. Test will open a new Firefox browser and go to http://www.google.com and search Google with query text “sahi forums
Upon completion of test you should see this on the top of the results page:

Assertions: 3 right, 0 wrong, 0 ignored, 0 exceptions

Hope this post will help some readers trying to use Sahi Automation Testing with Generic Fixture or people facing similar issues while using other frameworks with Generic Fixture.

  1. Jim,

    Many thanks for reading this post and your good words. I haven’t used python myself but I believe using javax’s ScriptEngine package (javax.script.ScriptEngine, added from JDK 1.6) we can call any python script from Generic Fixture and get it evaluated like any other Java code. In fact ScriptEngine gives us ability to call other scripting platforms as well e.g. Javascript. I will create a new Blog post in next couple of days on this topic (using python with Generic Fixture).

    cheers,
    Anubhava

    Hi Anubhava,
    Good post but I can’t get test run. If Firefox is not my default browser then how do I go about it.
    Cheers
