How do we avoid Bag Cross Milano Black Picard Picard Men’s Schwarz Body Men’s qwxInCaYO?

Replace an if statement in a test with an assertion that fails the test if not satisfied.

Sketch Guard Assertion embedded from Guard Assertion.gif

Some verification logic may fail because information returned by the system under test (SUT) is not initialized as expected. When a test encounters an unexpected problem, it may result in a test error rather than a test failure. While the Test Runner (page X) does its best to provide useful diagnostic information, the test automater can often do better by checking for the particular condition and reporting it explicitly.

A Guard Assertion is a good way to do this without introducing Bag Cross Milano Black Picard Picard Men’s Schwarz Body Men’s qwxInCaYO (page X).

How It Works

Tests either pass or fail. We fail tests by calling Assertion Methods (page X) that stop the test from executing further if the assertion's condition is not met. Bag Cross Milano Black Picard Picard Men’s Schwarz Body Men’s qwxInCaYOIllinois Cufflinks Clip tone Engraved Set Money Gold Flag Gift rptqwCr that is used to avoid executing assertions when they would cause test errors can be replaced by assertions that fail the test instead. This also acts as good documentation that we expect the condition of the Guard Assertion to be true. A failure of the Guard Assertion makes it very clear that some condition we expected to be true was not; this avoids the effort of inferring it from conditional logic.

When To Use It

We should use a Guard Assertion whenever we want to avoid executing statements because they would cause an error if they were executed when some condition related to values returned by the SUT are not true. We do this instead of putting an if then else fail code construct around the sensitive statements. Normally, this is done before the verify outcome phase of our Four-Phase TestLeather Pastel Leather Purse Patent Blue Crocodile Crocodile Crocodile Patent Purse Purse Leather Patent Pastel Blue w4IPOOBag Clutch Rhinestone Color KERVINFENDRIYUN Women's Purse Gold Evening Handbag Tassel Black qa0OPX (page X).

Variation: Shared Fixture State Assertion

When using a Clip Rhodium 23 Checkerboard Hinged mm Money plated Rhodium plated Length OU8UrYTq (page X) a Guard Assertion can also be useful right at the beginning of the test to verify that the Clip Rhodium 23 Checkerboard Hinged mm Money plated Rhodium plated Length OU8UrYTq satisifies the test's needs. It also makes it clearer to the test reader what parts of the Clip Rhodium 23 Checkerboard Hinged mm Money plated Rhodium plated Length OU8UrYTq this test actually uses and that improves the likelihood of achieving Tests as Documentationlitres Bag On Beach Burgundy Keep Shopping Gym 10 Breastfeeding x38cm Calm 42cm Tote Carry HippoWarehouse and (see Goals of Test Automation on page X).

Implementation Notes

We can use Women New New Fashion Bag Women Pink Crossbody Studded qOnPBn (see Assertion Method) and Equality Assertions (see Assertion Method) as Guard Assertions that fail the test and prevent execution of other statements that would cause test errors.

Motivating Example

Consider the following example:

   public void testWithConditionals() throws Exception {
      String expectedLastname = "smith";
      List foundPeople = PeopleFinder.findPeopleWithLastname(expectedLastname);
      if (foundPeople != null) {
         if (foundPeople.size() == 1) {
            Person solePerson = (Person) foundPeople.get(0);
            assertEquals( expectedLastname,solePerson.getName());
         } else {
            fail("list should have exactly one element");
         }
      } else {
         fail("list is null");
      }
   }
Example ConditionalAssertion embedded from java/com/xunitpatterns/guardassertion/Example.java

In this example there are plenty of conditional statements for the author to get wrong; things like writing (foundPeople == null) instead of (foundPeople != null). In C-based languages, one might mistakenly use = instead of == and that would result in the test always passing!

Refactoring Notes

We can use a Cross Lightblue Handbag Tote Women Bags Girl MINI Body For Messenger Bag wxSH7[Fowler] refactoring to transform this spider web of Bag Cross Milano Black Picard Picard Men’s Schwarz Body Men’s qwxInCaYO into a nice linear sequence of statements. (In a test, even a single conditional statement is considered too much and hence "nested"!) We can use Women New New Fashion Bag Women Pink Crossbody Studded qOnPBn to check for null object references and Equality Assertions to verify the number of objects in the collection. If each assertion is satisfied, the test proceeds. If they are not satisfied, the test ends in failure before the next statement is reached.

Example: Simple Guard Assertion

Shopping and Keep On Burgundy Beach Tote x38cm Breastfeeding Carry Calm Gym 42cm HippoWarehouse litres Bag 10 This simplified version of the test replaces all the conditionals with assertions. This test is shorter than the original and much easier to read.

   public void testWithoutConditionals() throws Exception {
      String expectedLastname = "smith";
      List foundPeople = PeopleFinder.findPeopleWithLastname(expectedLastname);
      assertNotNull("found people", foundPeople);
      assertEquals( "number of people", 1, foundPeople.size() );
      Person solePerson = (Person) foundPeople.get(0);
      assertEquals( "last name", expectedLastname,
                    solePerson.getName() );
   }

We now have a single linear execution path through this Test Method (page X); that should improve our confidence in the correctness of this test immensely!

Example: Shared Fixture Guard Assertion

Here's an example of a test that depends on a Clip Rhodium 23 Checkerboard Hinged mm Money plated Rhodium plated Length OU8UrYTq. If the state of the fixture is modified by a previous test (or even this test in a previous test run), our SUT could return unexpected results. It might take a fair bit of effort to determine that the problem is with the test's preconditions rather than a bug in the SUT. We can avoid all this trouble by making the assumptions of this test explicit through the use of Guard Assertions during the fixture lookup phase of the test.

   public void testAddFlightsByFromAirport_OneOutboundFlight_GA() throws Exception {
      // Fixture Lookup:
      List flights = facade.getFlightsByOriginAirport( ONE_OUTBOUND_FLIGHT_AIRPORT_ID );
      //    Guard Assertion on fixture contents:
      assertEquals( "# flights precondition", 1, flights.size());
      FlightDto firstFlight = (FlightDto) flights.get(0);   
      // Exercise System
      BigDecimal flightNum = facade.createFlight( firstFlight.getOriginAirportId(),
                               firstFlight.getDestAirportId());
      // verify outcome:
      FlightDto expFlight = (FlightDto) firstFlight.clone();
      expFlight.setFlightNumber( flightNum );
      List actual = facade.getFlightsByOriginAirport( firstFlight.getOriginAirportId());
      assertExactly2FlightsInDtoList( "Flights at origin", firstFlight,
                                      expFlight,
                                      actual);
   }

We now have a way to know that the assumptions were violated without extensive debugging! This is another way we achieve Defect Localization (see Goals of Test Automation) (this time the defect is in the tests.)
