@@@TODO refactor this doc

Prerequisite :

Build asqatasun (it may take a while !!)

cd Asqatasun/

# before first build
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=com.saucelabs -DartifactId=sebuilder-interpreter -Dversion=1.0.2 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=engine/asqatasun-resources/src/main/resources/lib/sebuilder-interpreter-1.0.2.jar

# build
mvn clean install

Build the referential-creator maven plugin

cd Asqatasun/rules/referential-creator-maven-plugin/
mvn clean install

Prepare and generate your referential

Prepare your referential (CSV File)

Mandatory columns

The minimum header line to create context : theme;theme_en;test;test-label_en Note that you can replace en by an other language.

Optional columns

The header line with all optional columns : theme;theme_en;critere;critere-label_en;test;test-label_en;level;scope;class-name

Add multiple languages

The first and second columns are for the themes. The first for the theme number, and the second for the theme Name. We consider the first theme column as the default language. If you want to have multi languages (i18n) add other column suffixes by the lang code (fr, en, es, ...)
Header line with multiple languages : theme;theme_en;theme_fr;test;test-label_en;test-label_fr
Note that if you have to translate the themes, you must translate the others columns : each language must have a translation for theme, and test-label.

You can see our CSV example or another CSV exemple.

How to generate the new referential and make it usable from the Asqatasun web application?


cd $myGeneratedReferential
mvn clean install
cd target
tar xvf tgz

Install in database

cd tgz-extract-folder/sql/
mysql -u $username -p$myPassword $asqatasunDatabase < $ref-insert.sql

Deploy in the web application context
