Along side of development lifecycle, most of us looking for a way to be sure that the unit of work that has been written is working properly and committed. JSFUnit provides testing capabilities for JSF applications. JSFUnit framework provides a facility for running the unit test cases for JSF application directly from the browser. To make ..

This page will be displayed when the password is incorrect for a valid username. This seems like something WTP hutorial have taken care of, but 5 years on, they are still struggling with validation and code completion.

These guys are publishing to Maven, but including the classes in their jar.

As the name suggests, the component org. To make things interesting, we will redirect to a different page if the username is invaid.

If you experience problems, have questions, or simply want to meet the community, visit the forum. Learn more about Kotlin. Not many frameworks exists in the market for testing JSF applications and this framework which originated from JBoss usfunit provides wider coverage for testing JSF applications with respect to the managed beans state, navigation flows, application configuration etc.

Sample: JSFUnit

In this example, we will see how to write simple test cases for the above JSF page that we have written. We have also listed some of the popular JSF Books.

Over a million tuutorial have joined DZone. Well-meaning meatheaded liberal design is probably the real problem here. That allows you to run JUnit tests as stand-alone executions without the tedious overhead of starting and stopping an appserver.

This page displays the input components for accepting the username and password through the inputText and the inputSecret tags. The cover in this case is simple: Note that we have explicitly specified the identifier to jsfuhit of the components.


At first, it encapsulates the username and password properties. For illustrating this, we will develop a traditional login application which prompts for the username and a password during application startup. There is a tutoiral beta release of it, which looks great.

Introduction to JSFUnit

Note that the test method makes appropriate assertions before checking for the existence and the value rendered in the component. ServetTestCase so that the Servlet Runner can run the test case class within a web application. In this example application, there is no need to define managed beans or the navigation rules, so the faces configuration file will be empty.

Unit Testing might seem to be a pain, and it can take a long time to get going if you have already written a lot of code, but it will more than pay for itself in terms of a lower defect rate and application stability.

Lean would of course show these detours as off the VSM. He was frustrated by the lack of JSF testing tools and insisted that we need something that can test JSF applications at higher levels of abstraction. Below is the login JSF page. JSFUnit has documented ways to be integrated with Maven, but the maven plugin in eclipse can’t easily map a custom goal to a run operation.

Note that argument passed to click is the identifier for the button. TDD that extends out to the edge of the app is life-changing.

Introduction to JSFUnit

Per my earlier post about the joy of JUnit Plugin Tests, having tests that actually extend all the way out to the edges of the app is life-changing. Things are further complicated by the fact that when you are working along, to get your war for testing, you have to publish. When you are writing a class often a bean in the case of JSFyou should be thinking “How can I unit test this? We will also see how to write simple JSF test cases at the end of tutoriaal section. Maybe the Maven guys should think about a simple idea: Introduction Testing has become an important aspect for every application and an application cannot be released unless it is not thoroughly tested.


The example is as simple as it will display a JSP page that will return static html content to the browser. I still like the idea of writing a crawler that spiders into open source projects and scores their potential for mayhem. Because there is a faulty premise at the core of the declarative process: Note that the following compile-time and run-time jar files need to be present jsfuhit the classpath.

The test method testTitleComponent is used to test whether the component is rendered and if rendered making sure the text displayed in the component is correct.

Building Reactive Microservices in Java: Another useful thing to do is Static Code Analysis, I think “FindBugs” is a great little tool for this; I’ve caught an awful lot of stupid mistakes with it! Insight Into a Hybrid Approach. If the username and the password combination jfsunit correct, the application redirects to a successful page and when the password is incorrect, an error page will be returned.

JSFUnit tutorial

I’ll second what Tim says. Not my code of course, cough, cough. You would think you’d be able to just define a run configuration that you could pass the test information to. This article is an attempt to provide an introduction to the framework JSFUnit. This article provided step by step process in setting up the environment for facilitating testing for JSF applications. While slashing through this, looked at some shell scripts that jsunit jar contents.

If you use Apache Ant or something similaryou could even set things up to take the latest code out of source control and run the unit tests every night.
