Selenium tests being silently ignored

Reported by Brad Mace | April 1st, 2011 @ 09:35 PM

There seems to be some wrong with the #{selenium} tag that causes tests to sometimes be ignored.

Framework version: 1.1.1
Platform you're using: CentOS

Reproduction steps:
Run the following tests via play test testapp

Details:
In the following tests, the Tom, Dick, Harry, Sally, More tests in the second tag are silently ignored, while all the other tests, including an equivalent test in a table are run successfully.
(While the nested single-quotes look like they should need escaping, they've been working just fine.)

#{selenium 'Home page menu'}

open('http://example.com:9003/')
waitForPageToLoad()

verifyElementPresent('//ul[@id='home']/li/[a.='Login']')
verifyElementPresent('//ul[@id='home']/li/[a.='Logout']')
verifyElementPresent('//ul[@id='home']/li/[a.='Sitemap']')

#{/selenium}

#{selenium 'Application menu'}
setTimeout(10000)
open('http://example.com:9003/Application/routes')
waitForPageToLoad()
assertTitle('Route List')

assertElementPresent('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']')
verifyElementPresent('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[1]')
verifyText('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[1]/a', 'Home')

verifyNotVisible('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[2]')
setTimeout(3000)
mouseOver('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[1]')
waitForVisible('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[2]')
verifyElementPresent('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[2]/a')
verifyText('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[2]/a', 'Application')
verifyText('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[a[.='Application']]/ul/li[1]', 'Index')
verifyText('//ul[@class='breadcrumbs']/li[a[.='Application']]/ul/li[2]', 'Routes')

#{selenium 'Custom Menu'}

<h2>Play framework</h2>

Play makes it easier to build Web applications with Java. It is a clean alternative to bloated Enterprise Java stacks. It focuses on developer productivity and targets RESTful architectures. Learn more on the <a href="http://www.playframework.org">http://www.playframework.org</a> website.<br><br>

<h2>Source code is hosted on github</h2>Check out our repository at <a href="http://github.com/playframework/play">http://github.com/playframework/play</a><br><br>

<h2>Contributing, creating a patch</h2> Please read the <a href="http://play.lighthouseapp.com/projects/57987/contributor-guide">contributor guide</a><br><br>

<h2>Reporting Security Vulnerabilities</h2> Since all bug reports are public, please report any security vulnerability directly to <em>guillaume dot bort at gmail dot com</em>.<br><br>

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
