Running the test suite

Preparation

Install the dependencies and OpenREM

OpenREM is a Django application, and therefore we use Django’s test-execution framework to test OpenREM.

The first thing to do is to create a local copy of the git repository, then install all of OpenREM’s dependencies in a virtualenv.

You will need python, pip, git and virtualenv installed - see the links on the Pre-installation preparations docs for the latter, but you might try pip install virtualenv.

mkdir openremrepo
git clone https://bitbucket.org/openrem/openrem.git openremrepo

Now create the virtualenv:

mkdir veOpenREM
virtualenv veOpenREM
. veOpenREM/bin/activate  # Linux
veOpenREM\Scripts\activate  # Windows

At this stage there should be a (veOpenREM) prefix to our prompt telling us the virtualenv is activated.

Now install the dependencies:

pip install https://bitbucket.org/edmcdonagh/pynetdicom/get/default.tar.gz#egg=pynetdicom-0.8.2b2
pip install -e openremrepo/

In the future it might be necessary to install numpy too for testing.

Configure OpenREM

Rename and configure openremproject/local_settings.py.example and openremproject/wsgi.py.example as per the Installing OpenREM docs.

Create a database following the same Installing OpenREM instructions.

Run the tests!

Making sure the virtualenv is activated, move to openremrepo/openrem and run:

python manage.py test remapp

All the tests that exit in openrem/remapp/tests/ will now be run.
