Parameterized

A parameterized test suite runs the same tests but with different inputs.

The test suite parameterization is defined at a configuration level as follows:

<munit:config>
    <munit:parameterizations>
        <munit:parameterization name="firstParameterization">
            <munit:parameters>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="name" value="Robert"/>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="lastname" value="Plant"/>
            </munit:parameters>
        </munit:parameterization>
        <munit:parameterization name="secondParameterization">
            <munit:parameters>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="name" value="Jimmy"/>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="lastname" value="Page"/>
            </munit:parameters>
        </munit:parameterization>
    </munit:parameterizations>
</munit:config>

The Test Suite will run twice, first with the firstParameterization parameters, and then time with the secondParameterization parameters.

For example, if you have a test that sets a payload for a flow and expects a result:

                    <munit:parameter propertyName="output" value="#[2]"/>

            </munit:parameterization>
            <munit:parameterization name="sumFive">
                <munit:parameters>
                    <munit:parameter propertyName="input" value="#[2]"/>
                    <munit:parameter propertyName="output" value="#[4]"/>
                </munit:parameters>
            </munit:parameterization>
        </munit:parameterizations>
    </munit:config>

    <munit:test name="expectFlowResult">
        <munit:behavior>
            <set-payload value="${input}"/>
        </munit:behavior>
        <munit:execution >
            <flow-ref name="myFlow"/>
        </munit:execution>
        <munit:validation>
            <munit-tools:assert-equals actual="#[payload]" expected="${output}" />
        </munit:validation>
    </munit:test>

</mule>

Parameterization From File

To use the same parameterized values on different test suites you must save your parameterizations values in a YAML file in the /test/resources directory of your Mule application project:

parameterizations.yaml Example
firstParameterization:
    name: "Robert"
    lastname: "Plant"

secondParameterization:
    name: "Jimmy"
    lastname: "Page"

And reference it from your test suite configuration:

Example Parameterization From File
<munit:config>
    <munit:parameterizations file="parameterizations.yaml" />
</munit:config>

You can combine both methods to add parameterized values to a test suite:

Example Parameterization From File and in the Test Suite Configuration
<munit:config name="parameterization-from-file-test.xml">
    <munit:parameterizations file="parameterizations.yaml" >
        <munit:parameterization name="thirdParameterization">
            <munit:parameters>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="name" value="John"/>
                <munit:parameter propertyName="lastname" value="Bonham"/>
            </munit:parameters>
        </munit:parameterization>
    </munit:parameterizations>
</munit:config>

If you define the same parameterization key in a YAML file and your test suite configuration, the test suite parameterization overrides your YAML parameterization.
