This page is to document the testing procedure for a Groovy UNO Extension release candidate. For information on the extension see the Groovy_UNO_Extension wiki page. The current release candidate is guno-extension-0.1.4 r????

The test procedure will be:

  1. Download and run a test script that will cause the release candidate artifact to be downloaded from the Apache Nexus staging location.
  2. Download and unpack the signed source files and build with Gradle.
  3. Replace the Downloaded RC jar with the newly built jar.
  4. Edit the test script to remove the staging repository location.
  5. Run the test script again.


To run the test script you need a Java JDK and Apache Groovy because Groovy scripts are compiled at runtime. To build the extension from source you also need Gradle.

Download and Run the Test Script

Download the HelloTextTableShape.groovy test script from AOO Bugzilla Issue 126770 to your local machine. This location will be referred to as the test script location.

The test script is a Groovy rewrite of the provided with the SDK. Running the script will download the artifact from Apache Nexus and install it in Groovy's Ivy cache along with other dependencies. On Fedora 20 Linux it is here: ~/.groovy/grapes/org.openoffice/guno-extension/jars/guno-extension-0.1.4.jar

Edit the script

If using Windows or Linux with a soffice executable location other than "/opt/openoffice4/program/" edit the test script for the location of the soffice executable. A Windows example would look like: "C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenOffice 4/program"

Run the script from the download location

groovy HelloTextTableShape.groovy

The script should bootstrap the office and add sample content to some of the applications using the guno-extension jar. Close OpenOffice after the test.

Download and Build the Source

unpack the source jar This will be the guno-extension test directory

If using Windows or a Linux with a soffice executable location other than "/opt/openoffice4/program/". Edit the two spock test files for the location of the soffice executable. src/test/groovy/org/openoffice/guno/SpreadsheetSpec.groovy and UnoSpec.groovy The default location is: String oooExeFolder = "/opt/openoffice4/program/"

Do the test build. (From guno-extension test directory) gradle jar

Test the Build

rename the downloaded jar in the local Groovy Ivy cache (From guno-extension test directory) mv ~/.groovy/grapes/org.openoffice/guno-extension/jars/guno-extension-0.1.4.jar ~/.groovy/grapes/org.openoffice/guno-extension/jars/

copy the test jar into it's place cp ./build/libs/guno-extension-0.1.4.jar ~/.groovy/grapes/org.openoffice/guno-extension/jars/

edit the HelloTextTableShape.groovy script and comment out the grab resolver for the staging area. Groovy should find the newly built jar in the Ivy cache. // @GrabResolver(name = 'guno', root = '')

run the script again to test the newly built jar.

groovy HelloTextTableShape.groovy

Once finished you can remove the test jar from Ivy and rename the back to .jar
