Once you have gone through this section, you should have:
- Repomate installed
- A JDK (preferably 8+, 7 may work) installed
First of all, make sure that Repomate is installed and up-to-date. For a first-time install of Repomate, see the Repomate install docs. If you already have Repomate installed, make sure it is up-to-date.
python3 -m pip install --user --upgrade repomate
Furthermore, a JDK must be installed.
repomate-junit4 has been extensively
tested with OpenJDK 8+, but should work well with JDK 7 and later. Make sure
javais available from the command line.
javacis available from the command line.
To be able to actually run test classes, you also need the JUnit4 and Hamcrest jars. They can be downloaded from Maven Central.
wget http://central.maven.org/maven2/junit/junit/4.12/junit-4.12.jar wget http://central.maven.org/maven2/org/hamcrest/hamcrest-core/1.3/hamcrest-core-1.3.jar
If you don’t have
wget installed, just copy the links above and download
repomate-junit4, simply use
python3 -m pip install --user repomate-junit4
Repomate should simply be able to find
repomate-junit4 if they are both
installed in the same environment. To verify that it is correctly installed,
repomate -p junit4 clone -h. You should see some additional command
line arguments added (such as
--reference-tests-dir). See the Using
existing plugins for more information on how to use plugins in general,
and Usage for details on this plugin.
Some options for
repomate-junit4 can be configured in the Repomate
configuration file by adding the
[junit4] section. Everything
repomate-junit4 needs to operate can be provided on the command line, but
I strongly recommend adding the absolute paths to the
hamcrest-core-1.3.jar files to the config file. Simply append the following
to the end of the configuration file.
[junit4] junit_path = /absolute/path/to/junit-4.12.jar hamcrest_path = /absolute/path/to/hamcrest-core-1.3.jar
All paths in the configuration file must be absolute to behave as expected.
See CLI arguments for a complete list of arguments that can be configured.
