Problem Statement

This project aims to implement NetSuite Jest Unit Testing Framework on SuiteScript.

Jest is a JavaScript testing framework designed to ensure the correctness of any JavaScript codebase (Frontend and Backend). It allows you to write tests with an approachable, familiar, and feature-rich API that gives you results quickly.

Jest is well-documented, requires little configuration, and can be extended to match your requirements.

Business Benefit

  • The 'Easy-to-use' tag can be used to define Jest, as it is the simplest testing framework. It is effortless to learn, use, and practice
  • It's a battery-included framework with built-in features for standard functionalities, so you don't have to add third-party plug-ins and external libraries
  • With Jest, you can significantly reduce the test runtime to almost one-thrice, comparing how much it takes to run local tests on Mocha
  • It runs multiple isolated tests in parallel, which enhances the test performance
  • Jest is CPU-bound, which cuts short a significant time in test runs
