Manual Tests

All of the below should take place in the HTML UI and non-vagrant tests should run against fcrepo-webapp-plus.

  1. Create nested containers
  2. Create binary resources
  3. Run fixity on binary
  4. Update Properties:  Perform SPARQL-Update on container
  5. Update Properties:  Perform SPARQL-Update on binary
  6. Delete container
  7. Delete binary
  8. Use transactions
  9. Create versions
  10. View versions
  11. Rollback versions

Database Tests

With Tomcat7 deployment, run above manual tests with alternate backend databases (Configuring JDBC Object Store)

fcr:backup/fcr:restore Functionality

These tests are designed to ensure the proper function of the 'fcr:backup/fcr:restore' features by testing them against various Fedora configurations.  The validity of the 'restore' can only be determined by crawling the repository and verifying the successful retrieval of the repository's content.

If the anticipated Fedora release is not backwards compatible with the previous version of Fedora, then the "From Fedora Version" should be the previous version.  Otherwise, it is sufficient to test the fcr:backup/fcr:restore functionality using the same version.

See: RESTful HTTP API - Backup and Restore

# Backup
curl -X POST localhost:8080/rest/fcr:backup
# Restore
curl -X POST -d "/path/to/backup/directory" localhost:8080/rest/fcr:restore

LinuxJettyfile-simple4. dataset

NB: "Success" is measured not by receiving a "204 No Content" message after the 'fcr:restore' command, but by performing a GET on every resource in the repository and receiving "200 OK" messages.

Manual Tests

Same as above, plus:

  1. Verify audit events are in triplestore (tick)
  2. Verify resources are in triplestore (tick) (Note: indexing works very poorly when using the testing scripts because rapidly adding and then removing items causes the message queue to get very backed up)
  3. Verify resources are in Solr (tick)
  4. Verify authorization works for the two auth-enabled configurations (tick)
  5. Verify reindexing to triplestore works (tick) (tested by looking in fuseki after each step: adding a resource, adding a dc:title, removing dc:title, deleting resource.  Did not test the camel separate reindexing feature.)

4.7.0 - 4.7.2 Upgrade Testing

Tests to verify if 4.7.3 resolves errors seen with upgrading from 4.7.0 to 4.7.2

  1. 4.7.2
    1. Start 4.7.0 with a new data directory
    2. Create a resource with SKOS namespace
      1. curl -X POST -d "<> a <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core#Concept>; <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core#prefLabel> 'foo' ." -H "Content-type: text/turtle" -D - http://localhost:8080/rest/

    3. Stop 4.7.0
    4. Start 4.7.2 with the same data directory – should start successfully
    5. Stop and start 4.7.2 with the same data directory – should display error on startup
  2. 4.7.3
    1. Repeat 1. with a clean data directory, but deploying 4.7.3 instead of 4.7.2 and verifying that the error does not occur
