#22989 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Translation units tests loading test data from non-dynamic path

Reported by: mbijon Owned by:
Milestone: WordPress.org Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.5
Component: Unit Tests Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


Many of the current translation (pomo) unit tests load test files from paths not prefixed with DIR_TESTDATA.

The problems happen when the bootstrap.php file is located in a different folder from the default. In that case the mentioned tests fail with errors like fopen(data/pomo/{filename}): failed to open stream: No such file or directory.

Reproducing this error

Default bootstrap location, tests succeed:


Tests fail when bootstrap is moved &/or executed by other files:


The attached patch prefixes all the offending tests with DIR_TESTDATA so they can correctly locate the testdata even when the bootstrap is relocated.

In 1170/tests:

Use DIR_TESTDATA in pomo tests. props mbijon. see #22989.

#2 @SergeyBiryukov

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to WordPress.org
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Didn't include the formatting changes in [1170/tests]. I guess it's better to leave it as is for now for consistency with the formatting in the other pomo tests.

Thanks @Sergey for adding the error-fixing parts of the fixes.

It's not worth reopening this, but I don't think we should leave old formatting in just because we didn't refactor everything at once. The old test formatting doesn't match the current standards (http://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/coding-standards/#php), where else should we start?
