Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10541) cqlshlib tests cannot run on Windows
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2015 14:55:11 GMT


Paulo Motta commented on CASSANDRA-10541:

Most of the tests (except the auto-completion suite) were fixed on Windows with {{subprocess}}.
Luckily the code was well modularized and allowed to replace the posix-only pty terminal-access
module with a custom WinPty emulation based on {{subprocess}}. 

The problem of accessing a subprocess interactively with {{subprocess.PIPE}} is that {{}}
blocks until new data is present, so I used a trick (described in [this blog post|])
that uses another thread to read characters in the background from stdout and put them in
a queue which is consumed by the testing thread without blocking. This trick is not necessary
in dtests because all input is piped to the process, which processes it and exits, and then
all the output is verified at once. The cqlshlib tests executes each command interactively
and checks the output after each command.

Some other fixes:
* Replace the symlink trick to load cqlsh as a module with creating an empty {{}}
file during tests on {{cassandra/bin}}, so python will allow loading {{}} as a module
on both windows and Linux.
* Replaced the signal-based timeout handling on Windows with the eventlet library, which is
now necessary to run cqlshlib tests on Windows.

Although this was sufficient to fix the {{}} and {{}}
suites, it did not fix the command completion tests of {{}}, probably
because readline disables auto-completing from stdin piped input. For now, I disabled these
tests on Windows and created CASSANDRA-10720 to create platform-independent auto-completion

[~mambocab] [~philipthompson] any volunteer to review? :-) Also, could we set up a Windows/Linux
cqlshlib cassci run with this branch?

Tests will appear shortly below:
