For some parts of your system, you may find unit testing a good alernative to UI-based testing. Unit testing can be particularly effective for calculation engines and for business service components. Having a good set of unit tests for your system can help greatly when you come to change or refactor your system, as regression testing is automated and simple.


Feature List

  • Develop unit tests using familiar arrange-act-assert pattern
  • Test public actions of an eSpace, or private actions if tests are included in same eSpace
  • Includes set of basic assert actions; you can add more yourself if required
  • Test results summarised at test level, with further drill-down to show results for all assertions within test
  • Automated scanning of environments to dynamically discover and include new unit tests published in any eSpace
  • Automated republishing of unit test eSpace whenever code-under-test eSpace changes
  • Run and re-run sets of unit tests as required
  • Works with test-after or test-driven development

Main Benefits

  • Business logic can be tested independently of any UI, making tests less brittle than Selenium-based UI testing
  • Ideal for systems developed using 4-layer architecture recommended by OutSystems
  • Makes it easier to do test-driven development, if desired
  • Can alleviate reluctance to adopt OutSystems Agile Platform because of previous lack of unit testing support
