On projects that already have test suites, you'll often have to do a little bit of work and investigation before you can run the test suite.
- [Instructor] After you take the time to verify … that your system has a test suite, … the next step is figuring out how to run it. … On some projects, … you'll find documentation for how to run the test suite … in the project's readme. … But if that documentation does not work, … or if it's not there at all, … then you'll have to do some investigation … to figure out how to run the test suite. … A good first place to start if you're using an IDE … is to try to run the test suite from there. … This can often be done by right-clicking … on one of the test files … and choosing the menu items that mentions … running the test file that you've selected. … Here we see we got an error, … which suggests this IDE does not integrate well … with the test suite that's being used. … If you're not using an IDE … or your IDE does not support running tests directly, … then you'll need to find another program to run your tests. … Most modern test frameworks give you the option … of running tests from the command line. …
