This is a full-blown functional test. The emphasis here is on testing what
the user may input and see, and the system is largely tested as a black box.
We use PloneTestCase to set up this test as well, so we have a full Plone site
to play with. We *can* inspect the state of the portal, e.g. using
self.portal and self.folder, but it is often frowned upon since you are not
treating the system as a black box. Also, if you, for example, log in or set
roles using calls like self.setRoles(), these are not reflected in the test
browser, which runs as a separate session.
Being a doctest, we can tell a story here.
First, we must perform some setup. We use the testbrowser that is shipped
with Five, as this provides proper Zope 2 integration. Most of the
documentation, though, is in the underlying zope.testbrower package.
>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> browser = Browser()
>>> portal_url = self.portal.absolute_url()
The following is useful when writing and debugging testbrowser tests. It lets
us see all error messages in the error_log.
>>> self.portal.error_log._ignored_exceptions = ()
With that in place, we can go to the portal front page and log in. We will
do this using the default user from PloneTestCase:
>>> from Products.PloneTestCase.setup import portal_owner, default_password
We have the login portlet, so let's use that.
>>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_name').value = portal_owner
>>> browser.getControl(name='__ac_password').value = default_password
Here, we set the value of the fields on the login form and then simulate a
We then test that we are still on the portal front page:
>>> browser.url == portal_url
And we ensure that we get the friendly logged-in message:
>>> "You are now logged in" in browser.contents
