Description / Features

Thucydides was the most famous Greek Historian and nowadays is a very promising open source library that lets you use WebDriver/Selenium 2 to write better acceptance tests.

In a few words Thucydides helps you:

  • Write tests that are more flexible and easier to maintain
  • Produce illustrated, narrative reports about your tests
  • Map your automated tests back to your requirements more easily
  • See how much of your application is actually being tested
  • And measure project progress

More information about Thucydides you can find at the official Thucydides web site and read the User Manual 

The plugin calculates several Thycudides metrics and imports them in Sonar ( see metics definitions below )
It adds also a new dashboard widget that supports localiztion.

Usage & Installation

On the sonar side, just copy the sonar-thucydides-plugin jar to the extensions/plugins directory just like any regular sonar plugin. 

The current version of the plugin supports only maven projects and does not execute thucydides tests itself, so thucydides reports must be available before sonar analysis.
The default location of thucydides report files is under target/site/thucydides and although you can define your own report path with a maven property, the plugin expects to find them in this location.
More on Thucydides reporting you can find here http://thucydides.wakaleo.com/#_thucydides_reporting

Configuration

Currently there is no available configuration as the plugin uses the default values of thucydides properties
Thucydides plugin widget is available under the category Tests 

Try the plugin

To try the plugin you may find a maven sample project under src/main/resources.

  1. Unzip sample project in a local folder
  2. Add to your settings.xml the following

  3. Run the following maven command

    mvn clean verify thucydides:aggregate
  4. Run a Sonar analysis for the project ( mvn sonar:sonar )
