Suites: Describe Your Tests
A test suite in TestBox is a collection of specifications that will model what you want to test. The way the suite is expressed can be of many different types as we will investigate.
Test suite is a container that has a set of tests which helps testers in executing and reporting the test execution status.
A test suite begins with a call to our TestBox describe() function with at least two arguments: a title and a body function/closure. The title is the name of the suite to register and the body function/closure is the block of code that implements the suite.
When applying BDD to your tests, this function is used to describe your story scenarios that you will implement.
function run( testResults, testBox ){
describe("A suite", function(){
it("contains spec with an awesome expectation", function(){
expect( true ).toBeTrue();
});
it("contains spec with a failure expectation", function(){
expect( true ).toBeFalse();
});
});
}
The describe() function is also aliased with the following names:story(), feature(), scenario(), given(), when()
