Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4423) Define categories for integration test execution
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 21:59:20 GMT


Dima Spivak commented on ACCUMULO-4423:

I love that there's an effort being made to separate the distributed cluster-runnable ITs
from those that aren't. I added some comments to the PR (specifically, having Surefire run
ITs is scary, so I might avoid it...), but more generally, I'd say the functionality that
I'd most like with this is the ability to run only the standalone-compatible tests with a
simple command. As it stands, I end up generating a list of {{-Dit.test=...}} to verify functionality
of Accumulo on an exotically-configured cluster, and if I could do away with that in favor
of a single profile command line invocation, I'd be a particularly happy camper. Either way,
great to see progress on this front, [~elserj].

> Had a thought the other day when talking to some folks about testing.
> Our current integration tests can be broken down into two categories:
> * Encapsulated (MiniCluster only)
> * Capable of using a Standalone Accumulo instance (instead of a MiniCluster)
> with any ITs that don't have MiniClusters (if there are any), I am lumping them into
the Encapsulated category.
> Now, if I have an environment set up which I can run these Standalone tests against,
it would be nice to just be able to execute those tests. I could then run the unit tests,
checkstyle, findbugs, and encapsulated integration tests out of band, not tied to the lifetime
(and cost) of that environment for the Standalone tests.
> It would be nice if we can use something like JUnit categories to group these tests and
then provide the "hooks" in the build to let users specify which categories are executed.
