Additional assertion methods for testing XML

Project Description

This library is a set of helper methods for testing XML with Python’s unittest library. The new assertion methods use XPath to select the XML elements that assertions are being made about.

Sample usage

To use these additional assertions, simply mix the xmltest.XMLAssertions class into your test class:

import unittest
from xmltest import XMLAssertions

class MyTestCase(unittest.TestCase, XMLAssertions):
    pass

Now suppose you have the following XML string that you wish to examine:

response_xml = """<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Response>
    <CardTxn>
        <authcode>060642</authcode>
        <card_scheme>Switch</card_scheme>
        <issuer country="UK">HSBC</issuer>
    </CardTxn>
    <reference>3000000088888888</reference>
    <merchantreference>1000001</merchantreference>
    <mode>LIVE</mode>
    <reason>ACCEPTED</reason>
    <status>1</status>
    <time>1071567305</time>
</Response>"""

Assert the number of elements matching an XPath query:

self.assertXPathNodeCount(response_xml, 1, 'CardTxn/issuer[@country="UK"]')
self.assertXPathNodeCount(response_xml, 1, 'status')

Assert the value of a particular element:

self.assertXPathNodeText(response_xml, 'ACCEPTED', 'reason')

Assert the attribute values of an element:

self.assertXPathNodeAttributes(xml, {'country': 'UK'}, 'CardTxn/issuer'}

Installation

From PyPi:

pip install unittest-xml

Contributing

To run the tests, install nose and mock:

pip install nose mock
