Overview of this book

With its latest iteration, the powerful Odoo framework released a wide variety of features for rapid application development. This updated Odoo development cookbook will help you explore the new features in Odoo 14 and learn how to use them to develop Odoo applications from scratch. You'll learn about the new website concepts in Odoo 14 and get a glimpse of Odoo's new web-client framework, the Odoo Web Library (OWL). Once you've completed the installation, you'll begin to explore the Odoo framework with real-world examples. You'll then create a new Odoo module from the ground up and progress to advanced framework concepts. You'll also learn how to modify existing applications, including Point of Sale (POS) applications. This book isn't just limited to backend development; you'll discover advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets. As you progress, you'll learn about website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated testing. Finally, you'll delve into advanced concepts such as multi-website, In-App Purchasing (IAP),, the IoT Box, and security.

Chapter 18: Automated Test Cases

When it comes to developing large applications, using automated test cases is a good practice for improving the reliability of your module. This makes your module more robust. Every year, Odoo releases a new version of its software, and automated test cases are very helpful in detecting regression in your application, which may have been caused by a version upgrade. Luckily, any Odoo framework comes with different automated testing utilities. Odoo includes the following three main types of tests:

  • Python test case: Used to test Python business logic
  • JavaScript QUnit test: Used to test JavaScript implementation in Odoo
  • Tours: Integration test to check that Python and JavaScript work with each other properly

In this chapter, we will cover the following recipes:

  • Adding Python test cases
  • Running tagged Python test cases
  • Setting up Headless Chrome for client-side test cases
  • Adding client-side QUnit test cases
  • ...
