How to test an RTC plugin extension


Fran Burgos (1081643) | asked Apr 06 '16, 12:17 p.m.

I don't know if it is possible to test a Participant extension with JUnit. We have a test Plugin project for testing a Participant extension such as the plugin com.ibm.team.workitem.service.tests_3.1.0.v20141022_1844. But I don't know how can I test RTC server classes, for instance the run method of a IOperationParticipant. The isolate classes are not a problem but server classes need a functional (or mocked) environment.

Maybe I could add the plugin (extension) and the test plugin to RTC but I don't know how run that test and how check the output.

Any idea or documentation about this issue?

Possible it is. Easy? Not so much, as you said you need to mock the server classes.

Focus in mock the library interfaces, it will become your task pretty easy. Also, if you create a extension with atomic components, you can test your custom components and "believe" that the server classes are all fine.
