Hudson with Sahi

Integrate Hudson with Sahi

job Sahi

open Hudson and create a new job(eg.Sahi)



Sahi -> Configure -> Build -> Add build step -> Invoke Ant

configure it as follow:


save your configuration,then you can build it.

view result by Build History -> Console Output




Sahi test has log,the default directory is sahi_HOME/userdata/logs/playback

In order to view the log by hudson,we need to make the log directory point to the job's workspace

goto Sahi's workspace,in linux the directory is /root/.hudson/jobs/Sahi/workspace

create a new directory logs

workbox workspace # mkdir logs

and add script as follow to zkdemo.xml after script "threads="3" >"

<report type="html" logdir="/root/.hudson/jobs/Sahi/workspace/logs"/>

Built it again.

after build,you can view logs by Workspace -> logs




you can find the name of log file include chinese(i haven't research that),so maybe cause problem can't open log page:



modify server.xml(tomcat_Home/conf),


like this:

<Connector debug="0" maxProcessors="100" minProcessors="5" port="8080" URIEncoding="UTF-8"        />

restart tomcat,then you can access log page.

Playing Back Headless with Sahi

the above test,we must install Firefox.

In order to run your Sahi tests in headless mode you must do two things:

  * Provide a virtual graphical environment in which to run the browser. To do this we'll use Xvfb, the X-Windows virtual frame buffer.
  * Instruct the browser to use the virtual graphical environment. To accomplish this, we'll modify the <sahi> ANT task.

install Xvfb

In the X Window System, Xvfb or X virtual framebuffer is an X11 server that performs all graphical operations in memory, not showing any screen output. From the point of view of the client, it acts exactly like any other server, serving requests and sending events and errors as appropriate. However, no output is shown. This virtual server does not require the computer it is running on to even have a screen or any input device. Only a network layer is necessary.

Actually you don't need install it if you have installed xorg-server,you can just type Xvfb to test whether it works.

Assuming you've installed Xvfb successfully, you can launch it into a background process with the following command:

$ Xvfb :99 -ac & 

Here we have instructed Xvfb to use the DISPLAY number :99 and to allow all connections (-ac).

or we can create a new file in /etc/init.d named xvfb

the content is:

XVFBARGS=":99 -screen 0 800x600x8 -fbdir home"
case "$1" in
    echo -n "Starting virtual X frame buffer: Xvfb"
    start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --make-pidfile --background --exec $XVFB -- $XVFBARGS
    echo "."
    echo -n "Stopping virtual X frame buffer: Xvfb"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE
    echo "."
    $0 stop
    $0 start
        echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/xvfb {start|stop|restart}"
        exit 1
exit 0

Then We can use /etc/init.d/xvfb start to run it. More Info about Xvfb:

update Ant task

Now, the only modification we must make to our previous ANT script is to instruct Firefox to use this DISPLAY that is being provided by Xvfb. To accomplish this, we only need to modify the browseroption line within the sahi ANT task by adding the argument "--display=:99". The updated sahi ANT task is now:

        <sahi suite="${}/scripts/zkdemo/zkdemo.suite"
              browseroption="--display=:99 -profile ${}/browser/ff/profiles/sahi1 -no-remote"
            <report type="html"/>
            <report type="junit" logdir="${}/temp/junit"/>

Now that you have Xvfb running in the background, and the updated ANT script, you won't see the browser launch during the tests; it's all happening in memory. This is exactly what we need for our continuous integration system.

built the job.



you can see **the test is failed**

may be because console i get info

AUDIT: Tue Mar 16 17:37:29 2010: 26941 Xvfb: client 1 rejected from local host (uid 0)

my test about Xvfb

workbox bin # Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1024x768x24 &
[5] 27261

but test follow is failed

bin # DISPLAY=:99 firefox &
[6] 27266
AUDIT: Tue Mar 16 17:59:11 2010: 27261 Xvfb: client 1 rejected from local host (uid 0)
Xlib: connection to ":99.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: cannot open display: :99


made a file


containing the single line:


and call Xvfb thus:

</pre>Xvfb :99 -auth /etc/X99.hosts -screen 0 800x600x24 &</pre>

modify /etc/init.d/xvfb

# nano /etc/init.d/xvfb
XVFBARGS=":99 -auth /etc/X99.hosts -screen 0 800x600x24"

then start Xvfb

/etc/init.d/xvfb start

can see we have started xvfb:

# ps aux|grep Xvfb
root     15643  0.3  0.6  11280  6532 ?        Ss   13:36   0:00 /usr/bin/Xvfb :99 -auth /etc/X99.hosts -screen 0 800x600x24

you can run follow command to test xvfb.

DISPLAY=:99 firefox &
[3] 11821

also have error info:

workbox bin # sh: kde-config: command not found
sh: kde-config: command not found
Xlib:  extension "XInputExtension" missing on display ":99.0".
Failed to get list of devices

test again

the result:


you can find the last step testing is failed,i don't konw why?

if delete the last step and test again,it is successful!
