Testing

When developing to extend dotCMS, it is very important to make sure that new code added in a custom plugin does not break other existing dotCMS features that might, for example, calling the same method that you just customized in your plugin. To assist you with integrity checks on your dotCMS system during development, dotCMS has created Functional Tests, Integration Tests, and Unit Tests.

These tests can be run automatically to help identify and mitigate malfunctions of parts of the system that rely upon code that your plugin may be changing.
