Component registration annotation

When your test design requires you to register fixture components and unregister them after the test execution, use the @magentoComponentsDir annotation. This enables you to register all the components at a specified directory recursively.

Format

1

/**
* @magentoComponentsDir <dir_path>
*/

Here, <dir_path> is the path to the directory with fixture components. Each component must be registered using registration.php file.

Test case

@magentoComponentsDir annotation for a test case is applied to all test methods in the test case.

Test method

@magentoComponentsDir annotation for a test method configures the test to run with registered components located in a specified directory. If the parent test case also declares a @magentoComponentsDir, both annotations are merged.

Example

The following example demonstrates the @magentoComponentsDir annotation in different scopes.

namespace Magento\Foo;

/**
 * @magentoComponentsDir Magento/Foo/_files/code/Magento
 */
class BarTest extends \PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase
{
    /**
     * @magentoComponentsDir Magento/Foo/_files/themes
     */
    public function testOne()
    {
       ...   // Here you can use registered components from 'Magento/Foo/_files/code/Magento' and 'Magento/Foo/_files/themes'
    }

    /**
     * @magentoComponentsDir Magento/Foo/_files/libs
     * @magentoComponentsDir Magento/Baz/_files/languages
     */
    public function testTwo()
    {
       ...   // Here you can use the registered components from 'Magento/Foo/_files/code/Magento', 'Magento/Foo/_files/libs', and 'Magento/Baz/_files/languages'
    }
}

Each path declared in an annotation must contain a registration file in the specified directory or its subdirectories. For example, the MagentoFooTest_MyModule component at @magentoComponentsDir Magento/Foo/_files/code/Magento can be registered in Magento/Foo/_files/code/Magento/MyModule/registration.php:

use Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar;

\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(
    \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::MODULE,
    'MagentoFooTest_MyModule',
    __DIR__
);

A theme must be registered in the database. Each time you register a theme, reset the entire application. Use the @magentoDbIsolation annotation to keep the database integrity safe.
