Functional Testing on Windows


#1

I was wondering if there is anyone out there doing functional testing on
windows cookbooks.

Would love to hear from you, your preferred tool set, and level of success.

Thanks!

We’ve had really good success using minitest/minitest-handler.

We have an internal openstack cluster which we use to provision Windows
instances via Jenkins. So on each commit of a cookbook, Jenkins launches a
new Windows instances and we let minitest-handler do the functional testing.

Like David I have also had some success using minitest-handler on
Windows for integration testing, although some assertions don’t
entirely work (I don’t remember the exact limitations)

Unit testing with ChefSpec should also work, obviously.
