Write Your Own Thunderbird MozMill Test
This page is not complete.
This page attempts to be a basic guide to writing your own Thunderbird MozMill Test.
Currently you need:
- Thunderbird source, compiled and built (see Simple Thunderbird Build).
- MozMill, MozRunner and jsBridge installed (see the main Thunderbird MozMill Testing page)
Once you have both of those, cd into your object directory (of what?) and try running MozMill:
If you want to run just one set of tests rather than all of them, then you can do:
make SOLO_TEST=content_policy mozmill-one
The file mozmilltests.list tells you the available sets of tests.
Now that you've got the tests running, you can start writing your own. When you need to do a mozmill test, you have several options:
- Modify an existing test
- Write a new test file in an existing test set
- Write a new set of tests (even if it just contains one file)
