022 - Create a unit test plan for the Media Manager.

Postby chitsabesh » Sat Dec 22, 2007 10:38 am

The Task

Hello everyone,

My name is Sabesh, I'm 15 and from Singapore. I'm excited to get to work but before I get started, I have a question about how I should format the unit test plan. I think I've got a good idea of what I'm supposed to do based on what I've gathered from the web and from the posts (listed below) by Mr. Joseph L. LeBlanc and elin.waring :


What we're looking for is a document that describes 25 different things someone could enter through the Frontpage Manager and what the expected frontend output would be. For instance, if I go to the Front Page Manager and click "Publish" on one of the items, I would expect it to appear on the front page of the website.

This task doesn't necessarily involve writing PHP code. The document is just a description of what things a programmer would need to simulate in an automated unit test.


Basically, what we're looking for is a document that describes 25 (or more) different
things someone could do in the Media Manager and what the expected output would be.
For instance, if I go to the Media Manager and click create a new folder, a new
folder would be created.
This task doesn't necessarily involve writing PHP code. The document is just a
description of what things a programmer would need to simulate in an automated unit
test or to carry out a manual test.


I was wondering if something like this would work -

Thanks in advance for the help, and here's wishing you guys and your families a Merry Christmas! Image

I think I'll continue work on the unit tests and worry about the formatting later ;)

Welcome! Thanks for joining the GHOP contest and for taking a Joomla! task. There are several test plan tasks that other contestants have worked on. This one from Marieke is a good example.

Thanks!
Amy :)

Excellent! That is well done - clearly labeled - do this, this should happen - so a tester could use this to go through a list and comprehensively test the Media Manager.

Go ahead and post this on your Google Task page. I accept this work as complete.

Thanks so much for your contributions to Joomla!,
Amy :)

Two tasks to carry out this test plan have been added to google as issues 161  and 162,
