You can put backend tests in plugins/your_plugin/backend/spec

Any files in there called *_spec.rb will be run on build/run backend:test

What we did was write RSpec tests outside of the ASpace release, which start the application (with our plugins), populate it with data via the API, and check the outputs of common tasks against fixtures.  There's probably a better way of doing this (e.g. packaging the tests in the plugin directory, and having RSpec pull them out, instead of having them all in a big spec directory), but so far this has worked for us.

I know ArchivesSpace has its own test suite that folks who develop on ArchivesSpace can use, but how do institutions who develop their own plugins test their custom functionality, especially when upgrading to a new ASpace release?
