Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-5552) introduce a smoke-test profile that is enabled by default and during release:prepare
Date Sat, 31 Jan 2015 23:38:34 GMT


Arthur Naseef commented on AMQ-5552:

There is good and bad here.  I like the idea of a standard build being less susceptible to
failures from unreliable tests.  However, it is important to maintain quality, and even the
unreliable tests may be the only safe-guard from introducing some bugs.

>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Distribution, Test Cases
>    Affects Versions: 5.11.0
>            Reporter: Gary Tully
>              Labels: distribution, mvn, smoke, tests, validation
>             Fix For: 5.12.0
> Users should be able to do $>mvn install on trunk or the source distribution and get
a validated (smoke-tested) distribution in < 10  minutes.
> The smoke-test profile should be enabled for release:prepare
> At the moment, more than 3k tests are run, they are not reliable enough and the build
is gone for a number of hours. This gives a bad first impression.
> Or course we should continue to improve the test suite but this has a totally different
> The smoke-test profile takes a smart cross section of tests in each module that validate
core functionality. 
> It will be an interesting challenge to get the selection right; balancing typical use
cases with coverage with speed etc.
> The tests should be:
>  * representative of the module functionality
>  * clean - no hard-coded ports and use only space on target
>  * fast
>  * reliable
>  * can be run in parallel (maybe if it allows more tests to be run in the same time frame)
