Grails Functional Testing: Uploading a file using G-Func plugin

22 / Apr / 2009 by Chandan Luthra 1 comments

At Intelligrape we face many challenges while developing web-applications. One of the small challenge was to test the web pages that contains file input field <input type=”File”>(to upload files). After few hours drilling with Canoo webtest plugin I decided to use the new fabulous plugin, Grails functional Testing by Marc Palmer (http://www.grails.org/Grails+Functional+Testing).

The syntax for setting value for the file input field is

NameOfFileInputField.setValueAttribute("PathOfFileAsString")

Let me explain you with an example:
Following component’s HTML is

The name of the file input field is FileInputField.The code for setting value/path will be

FileInputField.setValueAttribute("testFile.txt")

any kind of suggestions and comments are welcome……

Cheers,
