SYNOPSIS



 package MyTest;

 use Test::Able;
 use Test::More;

 startup         some_startup  => sub { ... };
 setup           some_setup    => sub { ... };
 test plan => 1, foo           => sub { ok( 1 ); };
 test            bar           => sub {
     my @runtime_list = 1 .. 42;
     $_[ 0 ]->meta->current_method->plan( scalar @runtime_list );
     ok( 1 ) for @runtime_list;
 };
 teardown        some_teardown => sub { ... };
 shutdown        some_shutdown => sub { ... };

 MyTest->run_tests;



DESCRIPTION

An xUnit style testing framework inspired by Test::Class and built using Moose. It can do all the important things Test::Class can do and more. The prime advantages of using this module instead of Test::Class are flexibility and power. Namely, Moose.

This module was created for a few of reasons:
o To address perceived limitations in, and downfalls of, Test::Class.
o To leverage existing Moose expertise for testing.
o To bring Moose to the Perl testing game.

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

In addition to exporting for Moose, Test::Able will export a handful of functions that can be used to declare test-related methods.
startup/setup/test/teardown/shutdown A more Moose-like way to do method declaration. The syntax is similar to has in Moose except its for test-related methods.

These start with one of startup/setup/test/teardown/shutdown depending on what type of method you are defining. Then comes any attribute name/value pairs to set in the Test::Able::Role::Meta::Method-based method metaclass object. The last pair must always be the method name and the coderef. This is to disambiguate between the method name/code pair and any another attribute in the method metaclass that happens to take a coderef. See the synopsis or the tests for examples.

Overview

1. Build some test classes: a, b, & c. The classes just have to be based on Test::Able.

2. Fire up an instance of any of them to be the runner object. Any test object can serve as the test_runner_object including itself.



 my $b_obj = b->new;



3. Setup the test_objects in the test_runner_object.



 $b_obj->test_objects( [
     a->new,
     $b_obj,
     c->new,
 ] );



4. Do the test run. The test_objects will be run in order.



 $b_obj->run_tests;
