"raises" assertion for exception handling

Reported by: FND Owned by: joern
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: qunit Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


As suggested here, QUnit could be extended with a raises assertion to test for the occurrence of exceptions.

The attached patch allows writing tests like the following:

var expression, expected;

// should pass
expression = function() { return foo.bar; };
expected = "TypeError";
throwsEx(expression, expected, "invalid property access raises
TypeError exception");

// should fail
expression = function() { var foo = {}; return foo.bar; };
expected = "NoneError";
throwsEx(expression, expected, "property access raises NoneError

(Note that these tests use closures to wrap around the expressions which are actually being tested.)
