How to use many fixtures for one table?


#1

hi all,
now i have a problem when do the functinal testing.
assume i have a table named “customers”.

when i run the first test case, i need 20 records in the “customers”
table.
when i run the second test case, i need 200 records in the “customers”
table.

so, if i only use one “customers.yml” fixtures, the first test case
will cost much time.

then how to use many fixtures for one table?

appriciated for your help, thanks!

I am not all that happy with fixtures as they are at the DB level and
not the model level. You need to get IDs right between files etc.

Have you tried just creating a different YML file in the fixtures
directory, then splitting your tests into separate classes that
reference the different fixtures?

I do not know if this will work, but I would expect it to.
