Back-End Tests

  • Unit tests should be added to the src/test/groovy or src/test/java directories.
  • Integration tests go in src/integration-test/groovy or src/integration-test/java
    • To run the integration tests, shut down the vagrant image and navigate to tools/testing, run `docker-compose up`, then in another terminal navigate to `service/grails-app` and run `grails test-app`
    • Alternatively to the docker command above, `docker-compose up --build -V` forces docker to rebuild 'anonymous volumes' (e.g. the database volume). That may be needed in case the sql script changed since the last run.
  • Invoke using grails test-app
