NAME

Test::Able::Runner::Role::Meta::Class - metaclass role for test runners

VERSION

version 1.002

DESCRIPTION

This class provides the real guts for loading the test objects to run. However, you probably don't need to use it directly unless you are doing something fancy. See Test::Able::Runner for the usual cases.

ATTRIBUTES

base_package

This is set by the -base_package option sent to use_test_packages. A has_base_package predicate will tell you if this has been set.

test_packages

This is set by the -test_packages option sent to use_test_packages. A has_test_packages predicate will tell you if this has been set.

test_path

This is set by teh -test_path option sent to use_test_packages.

METHODS

test_classes

This returns all the packages that will be loaded for testing. This does not filter classes out that have $NOT_A_TEST set.

This will search for test classes if "base_package" has been set or it return the contents of "test_packages".

build_test_objects

This method returns all the test objects that should be run by this runner. It works by doing the following:

  1. It retrieves a list of potential test classes using "test_classes".

  2. It checks each package and throws away those with a package global variable named $NOT_A_TEST that has been set to a true value.

  3. It instantiates the test classes and returns an arrayref of those test objects.

setup_test_objects

Calls "build_test_objects" and sets the test_objects accessor from Test::Able::Role::Meta::Class.
